Winter Workwear with Lookbookstore

Skirt: J.Crew
Jacket: Old (Kenneth cole)
Shoes: Ferragamo (60% off!!)

Somedays (okay, more like everyday) I have the hardest time getting up in the morning. I HATE waking up in the mornings. It's one of the worst feelings in the world- along with wet socks, getting caught farting in public, and vomiting. Just to name a few. Lately, I've discovered a new trick to helping me get up in the morning. After I reach for my phone to turn off the alarm, I then start scrolling through emails, news, instagram and facebook. Within a couple minutes, I am alert with giggles, random and useless information, and outfit ideas for the work day! The power of social media I tell ya! Do you guys do this too? Tell me I'm not the only weirdo who does this! Whatever it takes to get me to work on time...

I'm starting to enjoy instagram more and more now that I've figured out the whole hashtag, @system (talk about delayed). Lookbookstore posts so many cute outfits everyday that totally make me smile. They generously sent me a few items awhile back but I didn't have an opportunity to take any pictures. I have worn this top so many times to work already, as it serves as a really nice layering piece and looks great with a suit jacket. Check out their store at for other great, affordable pieces.

I hope you have all been doing well and enjoying the holiday season! Thank you so much for continuing to follow along despite me going through my winter laziness period. I've really enjoyed keeping up with your lives as well :)

Getting in the holiday spirit

Sweater: Thrifted
Jeans: J.Brand
Boots: Tory Burch

As we approach the holiday season, it's often hard not to become overwhelmed with the gift shopping, card writing, cookie baking, holiday parties, pumpkin spiced latte saturation. I feel like the Christmas season can either be an extremely joyful time for people, or a time of tremendous loneliness when we are not surrounded with what society labels as "joyful and happy". Particularly now when social media can portray the holiday season so perfectly laid out for others. 

Therefore, I wish you all a very wonderful holiday season filled with internal happiness drawn from the blessings you experience day to day. A season saturated with gratitude for what you have, who you love, people who love you, and light for what the future will bring instead of take away. May all the Christmas lights, festivities, music, food and presents be an added silver lining to that :)
