Hello Gorgeous Loves!
Nothing makes you miss your wardrobe more than when you're away from it for a bit. Distance makes the heart grow fonder, right? ;)
The following looks are from last week and I had so much fun putting them together. I was just so excited to be back in my closet after having to style myself for a week with the very few things I took on my trip with me.
So, let's start off with bows and leopard print!
Bow shirts are everywhere now. Why not layer it under a cardi and let the bow do the talking? That's what I did in the look below. The cardi is a tiny bit loose in the waist, so I added a skinny belt to essentially nip in the waist and achieve a more hourglass figure.

My office is pretty casual in general. But, on Fridays we are actually allowed to wear jeans. I decided to do a dressed up version of Jean Day by pairing a tweed peplum shell (new purchase from my trip!) with skinny jeans and riding boots. The final touch was a cognac colored belt and chunky pearls; also new purchases from my trip. By the way, I realize that so many of the looks I've been posting lately are somewhat equestrian. I don't know why this is! Apparently it's some phase I'm going through. Maybe I really need to look into horse riding lessons? ;)

Finally, I decided to break out the old Forever21 striped dress that I purchased last year. This dress is far too tight and short for the office. So, I figured it was perfect for Christmas shopping on the weekend. I wanted to wear layers so I would be warm and comfortable, yet still cute. Just a note though: I would never wear the outfit below when shopping for myself. There are way too many layers to take off and on every time you enter a dressing room!
