the weather has been absolutely unpredictable in iowa. it goes from 90° & sunny to 65° & rainy in no time at all. so dressing in layers is essential. you never know when you’re going to need to strip down. or cover up! my go to is always a blazer. it dresses up the simplest of ensembles. and provides stylish warmth.

when I saw this cynthia rowley black & white tweed blazer at TJ Maxx, I may have screamed. classic & neutral, with endless possibilities. I knew I could pair it with any color pants. or any color top.

and even dared to pair it with leopard-print flats.

current obsession.

it could be the freezing temperature outside. or the approaching holiday. but every morning, I just want to crawl into an over-sized sweater. add some jewelry. or a scarf. and voilà – an outfit with a deceiving amount of effort. [or lack thereof].

here our a couple of my favs ..

and for the road ..

see: comfortable. but perfectly put together. & gorgeous.

throw on your over-sized sweater.

& go enjoy the LAST THREE DAYS of november. whoa!

the week in photos.

this is the week we say goodbye to october.

hello to november.

and pray for the east coast.

it’s so hard to believe our first “us place” was in the midst of the wrath.

all the photos on the left are mine. from our jersey city apartment.

then & now

count your blessings.

now onto ‘the week in photos’ …[tryin’ out a new style]

  1. when in doubt – rock black & white. @ the rehearsal dinner in my kardashian kollection polka dot blazer. with a black & white mani.
  2. possible fashion faux pas? but I couldn’t choose. a night out on the town calls for leopard print {steve madden wedges} AND snake skin {white coach bag}.
  3. scrumptious dinner @ japonais. hot rock filet mignon!
  4. did I mention I caught the bouquet?!?!?! :)
  5. taco tuesday. w/ [J].
  6. drinking beer out of a frosty mason jar. I think red hook is going for the christmas look.
  7. I finally got my target beauty bag in the mail. {I love free samples}. how did target know I’m a leopard fan?

tonight is the night – I’ve finally planned my october date [whoops] for [J] & I. a recap will be up on monday. assuming it goes well.

have a great weekend all.
