Happy Monday! We woke up to a blanket of snow this weekend which earned me some stern comments from the boyfriend about how I still don’t have snow boots. It probably had something to do with him carrying me over the un-shoveled patches! I was happy to add this plaid coat to my collection because it’s such a statement piece compared to my other coats. The best way to keep it the focus of the outfit is to wear it over all black. I also love how this necklace looks hanging into an unbuttoned top — I wore it last week with this shirt. AUrate lent me a few pieces to wear and I’ve worn this ring every day! It would be such a glamorous choice for your signature piece. Luckily there’s still time to drop some hints for a Valentine’s Day gift ; )

Have I told you how much I love these flare jeans? They’re so different that I always feel like I’m making a statement. I’m not used to the look of high waist jeans so I wear them most often with untucked tees but I liked how this striped shirt looked neatly tucked in. I still have to wear a pretty high heel (this pair is similar) so I really only wear them to the office where I spend most of the day sitting! The style from Karlie Kloss’ collaboration has sold out but this Frame Denim pair and the MiH Marrakesh jeans are similar and equally flattering.

One of my new wardrobe goals is to build a really good collection of basics. I think it will make the most difference in all of my looks and will make getting dressed each morning so much easier! This sweater comes in so many colors, I love it in classic camel or blush. A cheetah print clutch (also available here) will be a chic pop of pattern for simple outfits. Loeffler Randall’s Lock clutch has a convenient chain strap, too. It’s also available on Piperlime where they’re offering 30% off bags, shoes and accessories today! Use the code HITREFRESH to shop. These skinny jeans are the perfect dark wash. Kiehl’s Micro-Blur primer is one of my current favorites for how well it softens and smoothes my skin. I love showing off a dainty necklace with simple V-neck tops. I wear my gold watch nearly everyday so I think it’s time to expand the collection — crossing my fingers for this sleek black and gold style to come back in stock! I’m most comfortable in flats so I need to invest in a few more basic pairs. Pointed toe flats are so flattering — I also have my eye on this printed pair and these d’Orsay flats.
