Statement Scarf

Scarf: Target
Coat: Macy's
Jeans: Old Navy
Bag: H&M
Shoes: DSW
Sunnies: Betsey Johnson

A basic scarf can compliment an outfit, but a "statement" scarf can anchor one. I love the mixed animal prints on this scarf from Target (from over a year ago). Have a great weekend!

Faux Leather Love

Jacket: Forever 21 (similar here & here)
Scarf: H&M
Top: H&M
Jeans: Target (old)
Boots: Charlotte Russe (old)
Watch: Michael Kors
Accessories: Nordstrom (black/gold, spikes), H&M (earrings)
Sunnies: Betsey Johnson (similar)

Forever 21 and H&M have such great faux leather options, especially when it comes to jackets. Black is obviously a great staple color, but I've been pleasantly surprised by how well burgundy can work as a fall/winter neutral. I've also been pleasantly surprised by how much I love the spike bracelet I picked up at Nordstrom last month. It's a great arm stack piece and brings just the right balance of "edginess" to most polished/sophisticated looks.

Finishing up my final exams this week and graduating on Saturday! :) Hoping to post much more consistently in the coming weeks! Thanks for reading!

Ready For Combat

Jacket: JCPenney
Dress: ? (via Ross)
Jeans: GAP
Boots: Charlotte Russe
Purse: Steve Madden (via Ross)
Necklace: Nordstrom
Watch: Michael Kors
My fiancĂ© got me those green colored skinny jeans for Christmas last year and recently helped me pick out those combat boots (he has great fashion sense!). Originally, I was somewhat skeptical about the combat boot style - I've always liked how they looked on other people but never had the guts to try them myself. After a little reassurance from my fiancĂ© that I could pull them off, I finally got a pair of the boots...and ended up loving them! I'm definitely looking forward to incorporating them into more looks. 

How do you feel about the combat boot style? How do you style them? Thanks for reading!
