Hi, lovelies! 💓 I hope you’re having a fantastic Monday! I’m so sorry that it’s been a while since my last post. I was feeling under the weather last week and needed to take a break from social media. I realized it’s been a while since I’ve taken time for myself outside of work and blogging. I’m feeling more well rested this week and luckily, I even get a few days off work for the holiday starting Thursday! YAY!
I missed y’all a lot and am so happy to be writing a post today! 💛 Throughout the month, I’ve been collecting fashion staples for that fall-to-winter transition. In Chicago, it’s already starting to snow and people are pulling out their puffer coats and winter boots! I wanted to share some adorable finds from the month–perfect for a chilly (and possibly snowy) November day! ❄️
When it comes to the fall and winter seasons, I’m all about sweaters. They’re super comfy and you can pair them with just about anything…leggings, jeans, skirts, etc. I was looking for sweaters for work and found this pretty burgundy cardigan at Charlotte Russe! Usually, I’ll pair the cardigan with leggings, but it also looks great with jeans!
Comfort is a big priority for me when it comes to clothing. This cardigan’s material is really soft and I like the fact that it’s a little bit oversized. Plus, its deep purple color is such a beautiful shade for autumn!
Fashion find #2 is a sweater dress…and I’m obsessed! The dress gives me Ariana Grande vibes, for sure. Also, I’m really into the color block design. It looks so stylish and chic!
I wore this dress to work a couple weeks back, and got so many sweet compliments! The best part is that the material is quite thick and warm. Definitely a huge plus since we’ve been getting chilly temps in Chicago, lately.
I can’t get enough of pastel sweaters this season. Creams, browns, pinks, I love them all! This is a go-to sweater that I’d wear on a fall or winter day. It’s a great transitional piece for everyday wear and comes in a few other colors (grey, cream, and burgundy).
This sweater would look cute with jeans, over-the-knee boots and a handbag! A simple yet fashionable piece!
Although I bought this crossbody bag in the beginning of October, I wanted to add it into the haul because it’s adorable! I’m a big fan of tote bags, but was in need of a smaller bag. During winter (and the end of fall), it gets difficult lugging around a larger bag due to snow and colder temperatures. This crossbody bag is the perfect size and fits all the necessities like your phone, lipstick, and wallet.
Target has such gorgeous accessories, and I’ve always adored their purses. This bag in particular is only $29.99, and I wear it to work almost every day!
Glittery Scrunchies (similar)
Scrunchies seem to be back in style which makes me happy! I’ve always thought they were so much fun. I bought a scrunchie set at Charlotte Russe, but I couldn’t find it on their website. Fortunately, Forever 21 has a comparable pack of scrunchies on their site!
Funny enough, I picked up the scrunchies a week before I cut my hair. I’ve been wearing the scrunchies with my short haircut though, and the ponytail still looks just as cute, woohoo!
Francesca’s is my favorite shop for jewelry. They usually tend to be a little on the pricier side, but all of their jewelry is so stunning. I’ve been gravitating towards multi-color jewelry lately. During one of my trips to the mall, I spotted these beautiful marble design drop earrings and fell in love!
They would look amazing with a black sweater dress at a holiday party! Side note, I’m thinking of doing a Francesca’s holiday jewelry haul in the future–let me know if that’s something you’d like to read! Also, are there any other stores that I should check out for jewelry? 💛
This Month’s Faves
When I saw this top, I thought it looked really elegant! The bottom of the top is flared and the rose pattern adds such a romantic touch. I find that this top looks perf with jeans. My go-to shop for jeans is Charlotte Russe, and I paired the top with black high waisted jeans.
I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned this before, but I love learning about the planets and space in general. One of my favorite shows is Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. I mean, first of all–Neil deGrasse Tyson. Need I say more? Plus, space is just so fascinating!!
Over the past year or so, I’ve seen these NASA graphic sweatshirts online and they always look so cool! I finally picked one up at Target, and it’s super cute!
I hope that you enjoyed this post, lovelies! Have a wonderful rest of your day! x
