Bracelet: gifted Tiffany and Co.

Earrings: Mainstreet Marketplace

Where: errand running and to the studio.

Why:  With what’s currently in my closet, this is as close as I can get to a monochromatic look, something I’ve been loving lately.  I picked up this shirt on sale a few weeks ago and didn’t realize how perfectly it went with these jeans until I got it home.  I love the pairing — especially with the world’s most perfect boots.  I wear them all the time — they’ve got a slight wedge to give me some height, they’re nice and tall to keep me warm in these Wisconsin winters and they go with just about everything.

I got these earrings shopping with my aunt in her hometown when I was in college for $10.  The triangle shape drew me in and now they’re in my ears probably 75% of the time.  They were the inspiration for my trillion cut engagement ring and they’re getting a little worn — I’d love to find another pair but it’s proving to be a difficult task!  Do you have a great cheap jewelry find?  I’d love to hear about it!

Where: to the studio.

Why: For a long time now I’ve been interested in trying the floral/stripe trend — but this is the only striped shirt I have in my closet, and my only floral skirt was all pinks and oranges, and I just couldn’t quite make that leap.  I needed a skirt that just had a little bit of blue/navy in it.  Enter this skirt that I picked up on sale from Charlotte Russe for $5(in store, the link still as it at $25).  It has a black band that I didn’t love, so I just folded that part under and was much happier with how it looked!  I was pretty excited about this overall look — I love it when the new ideas in my head work out!

Since it was about 16 degrees when we were shooting these pictures I decided it would be the perfect opportunity to show you my trench coat!  It’s just a classic trench — tan and fitted with a belt that I never actually use as a belt.  I prefer to just tie it — easier to get on and off and lends itself to a more casual look.  It’s not too thick, but it does keep the wind out, much appreciated!
