White + Grey + Black

H&M Shirt | Chicwish Skirt | Steve Madden Shoes | Zara Bag

To know me is to know that full skirts are a staple when it comes to my personal style. You can almost bet when you see me, I'll either be in a simple dress and blazer or a full skirt with a simple stylish top.

Chicwish is now 2-for-2 with this second skirt purchase of mine from this online shop that has quickly gained popularity, with good reason. (My first purchase was worn in a post back in the summer.) Without question, the two skirts I've purchased from Chicwish are my top two favorites in my closet right now.

My love for this grey and black grid print number goes beyond this multi-purpose outfit which I would totally wear to church, work, or even an event. I've found that it is so versatile, the possibilities of pairing it with both simple and statement pieces for form the perfect look for several different occasions are endless.

Yesterday was my birthday! It was a simple day spent with family and great food, an unbeatable combination. I'm very grateful for the opportunity to have enjoyed the no-fuss festivities and to experience another year of life. (I'm also grateful for the ability to wear heeled sandals in the winter, thanks to Florida's tropical climate.) Cheers!

Thanksgiving Threads

H&M Dress (worn as a top) | Express Skirt | New Look Shoes (similar) | Sole Society Bag

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. No matter how amazing or tough the year has been, there's always much to be thankful for. 

If you're still scrambling for a Thanksgiving outfit, try pairing a solid top in a color perfect for fall with a printed bottom. Make sure you have room to "expand," if you know what I mean.

I originally wore this look to church a few weeks back, but I would totally wear it to a daytime work event in the fall or Thanksgiving dinner. It's the perfect mix of comfy and festive.

Happy Thanksgiving!

New In // Zara, H&M & Chicwish

Not Pictured: Zara Navy Tube Skirt | Black Bucket H&M Bag (smaller version)

Black, grey and white were [unintentionally| the focus of my last shopping haul, a trend that typically manifests for me around this time of year. I can't help it; cooler temps inspire me gravitate towards darker, basic colors, if nothing else because of the ease of mixing, matching and layering.

If I've learned nothing else this go 'round, I've learned I can't say no to a black knee length dress with sleeves... So, don't ask me to. Zara came through with the perfect all-purpose corporate or dress-up option while H&M provided the comfy casual style. I've always wanted a blouse with an embellished neckline, and Chicwish had a great quality choice that will pair nicely with my new full pleated skirt boasting an adorable check pattern. 

While my fall/winter color palette has transitioned, I bought my first "sweater" for the season in the form of a black and white knit sweatshirt top from H&M. And, shocker -- I bought another pair of black pumps. But, they are warranted due to the unique velvet/patent mix and sexy silhouette ideal for ensembles for this time of year. Not pictured are my navy mid-calf length tube skirt from Zara and black bucket bag from H&M, both of which I plan to style so many ways, you may just get tired of seeing them. So, don't be too sad that I didn't include their photos in this most.

You can grab most of these pieces for up to 50% off during Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, so feel free to check the links!

Dressed-Up Denim

H&M Dress | Zara Heels | Rebecca Minkoff Bag (similar)

A denim dress is one of the most versatile closet staples. Dressed down with a pair of flats and a carry-all tote for errands or dressed up with t-strap heels and a statement bag for a lunch date, the denim dress rules daytime.
