{the Fit}  Zara gold sweater, Zara pants, Urban Outfitters booties, vintage crystal necklace (estate sale), custom handmade Italian purse (Infinity Firenze)

The sun finally came out this weekend, and after all of the dreary weather we’ve had in the past week, I decided to take it up another notch with a particularly bright outfit.  Hope everyone had a fun-filled weekend, always goes by too fast.

Mismatched Prep

{the Fit}  J.Crew shirt, Target sweater, Citizens of Humanity jeans, Macys belt (brand unknown), Urban Outfitters shoes & wallet, Betsey Johnson sunglasses, Michael Kors watch, Kate Spade and Forever 21 bangles

This is my 10th post! Thanks to all of you who have checked out the blog thus far, it will continue to get better I promise! I do have a few things up my sleeve. :)

It is freezing with a capital “F” here in Chicago. I shed about ten pounds of clothing before this outfit was even visible! I’ve been obsessing over combining patterns and textures that may not normally “match,” and have come up with some pretty awesome looks. Started this with the classic shirt-under-the-sweater prep technique, then added in some stripes, leopard print, and green snakeskin… and voilà!

Bear Paws

{the Fit}  Asos earmuffs and mittens, Banana Republic peacoat,  Guess black blazer, Limited tank, Calvin Klein scarf, Levis skinny jeans, Michael Kors boots (similar here), BGBC Maxazria Milano bag (also in red)

I have been dying to wear these massive bear paw mittens and earmuffs that I basically stole from Asos (huge sale)! And the opportunity finally presented itself after it snowed almost all week. I wasn’t completely convinced we had moved to Chicago (the weather has been so warm compared to usual), but after the blizzards, I felt right back at home in the Windy City! Also went on a bit of a BCBG binge and got myself this snazzy leather Milano bag, it adds a touch of sophistication to any look. Hope everyone had a great long weekend!
