Transparent Purse

Jacket: Old Navy | Turtleneck: J.Crew | Purse: Zara 
| Jeans: Gap | Shoes: Sterling

I picked up this partially see-through purse from Zara last year. I loved the strategic transparent spots right away, then upon looking at it further, saw how perfect the size was, and how versatile and classic the color combination was (camel and gold, come on) - I was sold.

Denim on Denim

Snow and slush still blanketed much of the ground in the park, so rain boots was the obvious choice to wear. Since we had 2 dogs with us, I wanted to wear something that was practical and comfortable. Nothing is more comfortable than denim to me, and to add some interest, I decided to wear a polka dot blouse.

Speaking of this blouse, I originally purchased it to be part of my last year's Halloween costume (as Minnie Mouse), I even had a trial run and Instagramed them, as seen here. Unfortunately I didn't get to put on my fake eyelashes and hand out candies as a happy Minnie due to various reasons. Maybe this year.

Paper Thin Pants

Sun had already set, which means light was diminishing, and temperature was dipping. We quickly snapped a few pictures outside and called it a day.  Now that I think about it, I was pretty warm everywhere except for the legs - of course, these paper thin pants have always been my favorite work pants to wear during summer days. 

Moving onto something I don't regret reaching for - gold accessories and accents. I reach for them so much, that I'm not even sure if I'm doing it consciously or subconsciously anymore. They seem to go with anything and everything.

A Typical Work Outfit

gray sweater black tailored pants elbow patch cardigan white blouse michael kors watch
Cardigan, Belt: RW&Co | Shirt: Marshalls  | Watch: Michael Kors 
Pants: Joe Fresh | Shoes: Zara

This is a typical non-Friday work outfit for me: non-jean pants, a blouse, and a blazer / cardigan / sweater. This formula is easy, casual, and in my opinion still professional for my work place. For color, I added this belt, and later on swapped this shoe for the burgundy pair seen in this earlier post

Green Peacoat and Faux-Fur

Purse: Nine West (similar at Asos) | Jeans: Gap | Boots: Sterling

Bright colors and soft faux-fur (such as this stole and the ear muffs I wear so often), two properties I enjoyed the most when dressing in the winter months. I look forward to wearing bright colors in the upcoming seasons, but will definitely miss the soft and fuzzy pieces.

Faux-Fur and T-Straps

The weather had warmed up a little (even though the snow hasn't melted yet), so I was excited to try on these new t-strap heels I got a few months back - it was still a little too cold for them, I had to admit.  Good thing that I had this faux-fur stole/scarf to keep myself warm.

Varsity Jacket

Varsity Jacket: Urban Outfitters | Shirt: Costa Blanca | Cords: Gap
| Pumps: Jessica Simpson

I wasn't intentionally trying to go for a black and white outfit, it just happened. I first started off with these white cords, then I decided that I wanted to wear a neutral shirt to let the white stand out... before I knew it, I was grabbing for a black pump....
