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:  Out for New Year’s Eve!

Why:  The end of the year is always super busy for Ross’s job, so we decided to have a low key New Year’s Eve.  We went to Les Miserables, which we both loved, and out to Noodles and Co for supper.  It’s one of our favorite places to eat.  Even though our plans weren’t that exciting I decided to dress up a little bit anyway, but wanted to be comfy in the theater.  These leggings were just perfect!  I was so excited when I found them a few months ago because I love the look of leather leggings, but not the price tag.  These rubberized ones look enough like leather to please me, and I got them for $30 with a coupon code!  I wore booties with them because I knew I could kick them off once we were seated, but wearing heels always makes leaving the house feel more special.

I hope you all had a fabulous New Year’s Eve!  What did you do?  What did you wear?
