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!

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?
