Sucker for a Statement

It’s no secret if you’ve been reading this blog for a while that I love a good statement piece. I love bright colors and patterns so when I saw this skirt at the thrift store I knew I had to try it on! I’ve actually had it for a while but I just haven’t featured it on the blog yet. It used to be a staple in my winter work wardrobe if I wanted to wear something a little bit more fun to the office. It’s a nice thick wool so it keeps me warm even on chillier days! It is a little bit big in the waist but I actually like that because that means I can tuck in thicker sweaters and I don’t get that weird bulkiness that can sometimes happen!

My sweater is a rare retail purchase I made recently. I wasn’t planning on doing any Black Friday shopping but then I stopped by Ann Taylor Loft where everything was 50% off! Sometimes it can be really nice to go to a store where you know things will fit you (thank you, petite sizing!). Most of my sweaters have sleeves that are too long but this one fits perfectly! I mean, it is an XXS Petite but what can you do?

My hat is actually one of the older pieces in my wardrobe. I’ve probably had it for 7 or so years! I bought it from Urban Outfitters and I remember, at the time, thinking it was way too expensive for a hat. But it has definitely gotten its cost per wear over the years!


In other news, I had a really nice and relaxing Thanksgiving weekend and I hope everyone did, too! I got to see some family I haven’t seen in a long time and overall, just relax this weekend. I did do a little Back Friday shopping as I mentioned but I’ll be doing a little haul when my online order comes in from Ulta! But that also brings me to another point… Should I do blogmas this year?? I had a lot of fun with it last year so I’m thinking it might be fun again. I’d also like to do more video work too so we’ll see! I have a lot of ideas.
