How was everyone’s holiday?! Did you buy yourself a Christmas gift? When I was younger, I never did this, but as I get older I realize how important it is to treat ourselves well. Now I buy myself a Christmas present, birthday treat, and even a Mother’s Day gift (“from my pets”)!
This year I bought myself a Alexander McQueen skull scarf. This is something completely fabulous and frivolous that I’ve had my eye on for awhile!
I’m sure Alexander McQueen isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I love the edgy design aesthetic. I went back and forth trying to decide which one I wanted the most. I was tempted to get a wool scarf, but in California that’s only wearable a couple of months out of the year, and I knew that I was going to want to wear this all year around. I decided on this fun print with skulls and stars in black, ivory, and fuchsia. I love the way it pops with this all black outfit.
The Silk Shirt – (c/o)
This is another Lily Silk shirt. (If you missed my review of Lily Silk, you can catch that here.) I decided that a basic black silk shirt would be a good addition to my wardrobe and I was pleased with the way it worked with my outfit here. Silk just always feels so good and looks luxe!
Black Cropped Flares
Love these flattering Hudson cropped flare jeans. (The exact ones are unavailable, but I linked a similar pair.)
My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale splurge, these studded boots always make me feel a bit badass! (No longer available, but I linked a fab pair now on sale!)
I’m carrying my fav Marc Jacobs tote and wearing Kendra Scott earrings and bracelet, along with my Daniel Wellington watch.
Now, let’s talk about the belt. It’s fine. BUT what it I had this belt to add to the look? Right? Maybe a Valentine’s Day gift for myself?! 😀
The Coat – (c/o)
Loving my soft, warm and cozy J.Jill Chelsea coat. It seems to go with everything! And if you’re not a fan of wool, it’s a nice alternate to the classic wool coat.
A big thanks to my friend, Rachel, who played photographer for me. She’s always such a great sport at putting up with my blogger ways!
And since I took last week off, here’s my fav photo from two weeks ago. Who’s having more fun with fashion than these three?!! Be sure to visit Jodie, Nancy, and Charlotte at Jodie’s Touch of Style blog!
Did you catch my blog post about a year of outfit building? I tried something different and would love to get some feedback!
