We made it to Friday ya’ll!! Seriously shortest weeks always feel so much longer! I have a long to do list to conquer this weekend, and I booked myself for TWO spin classes because I am a crazy person. 🙂 I just have to get through this work day first though.
When I originally purchased this white tunic, a winter layered outfit like this one was exactly what I had in mind. I really wanted a long top for that perfect layered effect, and I needed it to be long enough to pair with a variety of sweaters. Because this top is so long and I am so short, I paired it with my skinny jeans and a pair of heels. It helps to keep everything in proportion and doesn’t let the look swallow my shape or size. Also, can we talk about this navy and gray color combo!?!?! Every time I find a new color to match with my gray jeans, I think why did I wait so long! I’m sure it will not be long before I am ordering a second pair, maybe a shade or two lighter for spring and summer.
Ya’ll have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you back here on Monday.

I love tops that catch you off guard like this one. From the front this outfit is the perfect girl boss serious work wear look, but when you turn around the gorgeous bow tie detail takes this look to the next level. I paired it with my favorite winter pencil skirt for the perfect outfit to go from work day meetings to happy hour drinks with your girlfriends. My skirt is a few years old, so I linked a few similar styles from Trina Turk.
I have already paired this top with my maroon skinny pants from this post. This top works perfectly left untucked over them. You could also make a smaller bow and create a long flowing in the breeze look with the ends when you walk. For a casual look, pair this blouse with a cute pair of distressed skinny jeans and my go to nude pumps for the perfect date night look.
The hardest part of this top is deciding what to do with my hair. I have been playing with braiding, so I went with that for the photos. A high ponytail or bun also looks cute with a top like this one. If you want to go hair down, I would definitely tie a small bow and leave the ends long so the detail can still be showcased.
I hope ya’ll are having a great week, and thanks for swinging by!

Striped Sweater Coat | White Blouse | Distressed Skinny Jeans | Lace-Up Heels | Long Pendant Necklace | c/o Statement Earrings | Silver Bangle Bracelet | Silver Cuff Bracelet | Chevron Ring | Similar Purple Purse | Mirrored Aviators | Lips: MAC Craving | Nails: c/o Essie Party on a Platform
Just when I thought I had enough long cardigans, I stumbled upon this gorgeous sweater coat. It’s called a sweater coat, so totally different than a long cardigan right?!?! The structure of this coat helps create a polished and professional look, but the sweater knit material makes it oh so soft and cozy. Also, it has pockets! I loved the gray and black stripe to add a simple neutral print to any look. I paired it with distressed jeans and one of my favorite white blouses for a dressed up casual look perfect for brunch or a casual dinner date. For work, toss this coat over a simple black dress to instantly create a super polished office-friendly winter look.
I went with heels for this look, because I am petite. Whenever I wear a longer coat, I feel the addition of the heels helps with proportion balance. This look would easily work with a cute pair of flats too. You could choose shoes in a fun color like teal or pink to add a little colorful personality to the outfit. This outfit is just missing that brunch mimosa!
Thank you for taking some time out of you week to stop by and visit. I hope you have a wonderful long weekend! I have 2 books to read and lots of fun blogging things to work on including a little something new I have been working on. I’m a perfectionist, so I ‘m not going to tell you about it until it’s all pretty and ready. I can tell you I’m really excited about it, and I am hoping to be able to share one day next week!! Stay tuned and Happy Friday!
