Just a Little Sparkle

Just a Little Sparkle



It is full on December and with that come Holiday Parties. It's the time of year that I like to add a piece (or two) of sparkle to my wardrobe. Many of these items will go with what is already in your wardrobe.

8 Pieces I Wear Over and Over

8 Pieces I Wear Over and Over


Over the past few years, I have really tried to make smarter fashion purchases. I have been making fewer purchases and considering how something fits into my current wardrobe. This allows me to splurge on a few items because I know I will wear them forever! I am sharing 8 Fall & Winter pieces that I already have and wear throughout the season. I have each of these items at least a year and know I will wear them for years to come.  


1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8

I'm not really even sure what to call these pants. They are somewhere between a jogger and a workout pant. I bought them as a great pant option for traveling days. What i soon found out is that they can be dressed up too. With a nice blouse and heel they are ready for the office! I especially love the paper bag waist.

Sweater dresses really may be one of my favorite clothing items. They are the first item I get out when the weather cools down. I own solid, printed and oversized ones. The one I wear the most is my solid midi length one like this

If I could have a Fall and Winter uniform, it would be these Spanx leather leggings and a classic sweater like this one! I can not say enough about these leggings. They are the item I wear the most when it is cold out! They elevate any look but are so comfortable. I even like them with a casual top and tennis shoes. 

Coats can be an investment so I really like to research any I purchase. I have had this dress coat for years! It is so warm and the cut is incredibly flattering.  It goes well with any dressy outfits. I typically wear mine to weddings, church and other nice events. The length is good for both full length and shorter dresses and skirts! For a more casual coat, this one can't be beat. It was the only coat I took to NYC last December and it kept me so warm! You can put several layers on underneath it without looking too bulky. 

Boots are a staple for almost everyone during the cooler months. I thought about buying over the knee boots for a few years and finally decided to splurge on this pair. It is quite an investment and I did wait for them to go on sale before I hit purchase. I have now had them for three years and wear them more often than I even expected too. There are several similar styles to these but I like the mid height block heel on this pair. I think this height and toe shape are the most versatile.

Fall Trends under $150

Fall Trends under $150


Every season there are always a few items I seem to be excited to wear. Leather is always a popular item in the fall and winter, this fall I want to add a leather dress to my wardrobe. I want a mid length one in a neutral color to wear to work and dinner with friends. This brown option is my favorite! 


1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 


When I need to change things up from my typical skinny jeans I grab my boyfriend jeans.. I love how they pair with with a slim fit sweater or with a tshirt tucked in them. My favorite pair are this pair from Madewell. 
 1 - 2 - 3 - 4


Something I'm looking to add to my wardrobe this season is a plaid blazer. This classic style is having a moment this season. Personally, I love the mixture of the menswear print in a feminine cut. For the office, I love a plaid blazer paired with black wide leg pants and a thin cashmere sweater. I also plan to style it with my favorite spanx leggings for dinner with friends. 


1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 


What trends are you excited for this Fall?

JCrew Fall Sale

JCrew Fall Sale


1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 12 - 13 - 14 - 15 - 16 - 17


JCrew just started a huge sale! Almost everything is 40% off with the code GOBIG. Even if the weather hasn't quite cooled down where you live, this sale is a great time to get some basic fall and winter pieces at a sale price. 

Cashmere sweaters are a fall and winter staple. These are thin enough to layer but will still keep you warm. I love both the vneck and turtleneck options. For something with a print, I'm getting this leopard sweater to wear with black leather pants!

When anyone asks for coat recommendations, I always suggest JCrew coats first. They can be an investment but will last you years! At 40% off this is the time to get one. They always sell out by the end of the season. This lady coat is my absolute favorite dress coat! The nipped in waist creates a flattering figure even when you have several layers on. I've had this style for several years and I still love it! For a more casual coat silhouette, I am a big fan of the cocoon coat. I have wanted one for years, and last year finally purchased this grey one!

Will you be stocking up on any Fall or Winter items?
