More often than not, when someone compliments what I’m wearing, I find myself saying, “This old thing?! Thank you!” This sweater and skirt are from five and six years ago, respectively, and this combo (paired with RED!) is one I still love and wear today.

Today's Everyday Fashion: I Have No Shame

Last winter I wore a beret in public and I liked it so I thought- why not up the ante this year and try a captain’s hat?! It felt a tad silly at first (this look is not quite weather appropriate in Orlando yet!), but I just rolled with it, shame-free. What’s the worse that can happen? As Iris Apfel says, “If you put something together and it doesn’t look so good, the fashion police are not going to come and take you away. And if they do, you might have a little fun in jail.” And that is precisely why, year after year, I’ll keep having fun and experimenting with clothing. Now I just have to decide whether to top this outfit with the hat or not before I wear it - which way would you go?

Coat: H&M, $80 (similar below)
Sweater: J.Crew Factory, $36 (similar)
Jeans: Levi’s c/o Amazon, $59 (same, same, same)
Shoes: J.Crew Factory, $35
Purse: Bloomingdale's, $70 (similar, similar)
Hat: H&M, $15 (similar)
Earrings: Saks Off Fifth, $13 (similarsimilar, similar)
Approx. dates: Coat, earrings and sweater 2 years ago. Jeans, shoes, purse are recent.

So Much Holiday Fun With J.Crew Factory

We are proud to partner with J.Crew Factory for today’s post. Sponsors are carefully selected in conjunction with our mission statement to bring you style content we think you’ll love! All opinions and editorial decisions are solely my own.

The top three reasons to get yourself to J.Crew Factory for some holiday shopping this year:

1. Color! 2. Glitter! 3. Great prices! 

First things first, color. Because where else can you find a high-quality, colorful coat for around $100?! You can choose from red, pink, yellow, bright blue, gray, camel, black and green (the color I’m rocking). Plus sweaters and scarves in every color of the rainbow – for the entire family!

Coat

Or, bring on the glitter! These glitter moccasins and glitter flats (below) make an amazing gift, or for your next holiday soiree, the navy metallic polka dot ruffle top and mixed metal necklace I’m wearing are a perfect match. You could even throw on a blazer or cardigan, and wear that outfit to work!

Shoes / Earrings / Bracelet / Slippers
Necklace / Shoes / Necklace / Boots

And don’t forget the shoes! Perhaps my favorite find - you’ll be seeing these on the blog a lot - black block heels. They are SO comfy, and a great price at around $40. I’m also loving these soft flats that come in four colors from a recent blog post. Both pairs will easily take you from work to weekend!

Hope you love ringing in the holidays with J.Crew Factory as much as I do! Head to their site to see what coupons are available today (the scrolling banner at the top of the site) + check out more favorites below.

We are bombarded with so much messaging around buying new outfits everyday that I hope it’s refreshing to see an old outfit - exact same dress, necklace and shoes - from three years ago! I certainly share lots of new clothing finds here on the blog, which is probably why it feels so good to mix in a totally old repeat from time to time. (A “palette cleanser,” if you will.) Perhaps it will be a welcome reminder that sometimes when you feel “stuck” and are looking for something exciting to wear - it can already be sitting right there in your closet!

Dress: H&M, $37 (similar below)
Boots: Vince Camuto (same, similar, similar, similar)
Purse: Bloomingdale's, $70 (similar, similar)
Necklace: Stella & Dot (similar, similar, similar)
Approx. dates: Necklace, boots are 4 years ago. Dress is 3 years ago. Purse is recent.
