Dressing Up: Day 3

Dress: Julie Brown ℅ Bluetique {similar} / Tights: J. Crew / Pumps: Louboutin / Earrings: Bluetique {similar}

I first wore this dress over the Holiday season but It makes the perfect outfit for any date night: like Valentine’s Day {which is right around the corner!} My dress is Julie Brown and I love everything from her line. She makes women’s wear that’s affordable, pretty, and slightly sporty. I love the clean lines of this dress and of course the color! I linked similar dresses below but you can find my exact one on Julie Brown’s website.

This week I’ll be sharing holiday inspiration for every event on your calendar! Whether it’s a lunch date catching up with girlfriends, Christmas Eve Mass or a Holiday party, I have you covered!

Sara Campbell has an amazing holiday line out this year and I couldn’t get enough of this cream tweed coat {it’s so lightweight and perfect if you need to layer} and this silk blouse with lace collar and cuffs.

Heat Wave

Dress: Julie Brown {similar} / Clutch: Gigi New York / Flats: Chanel {similar}

This heat wave we’re having in the upside of Florida is a killer. Im over here all “I need a refill on my hot chocolate” and mother nature turns the heat up to 75 without even a warning! I naturally, had no choice but to throw on a dress I had been saving for vacation. You can find this exact Julie Brown Heather Dress on her website, but I’ve linked similar fits {they’re all on sale!} below. I love the gold embroidery on the front and how it looks so cute without needing much help {i.e. no jewelry necessary!} As much as I love the warmer temps, can it please just cool off again?! My sweaters need love too!

If you haven’t heard of Kelly Wynne yet then I feel honored to introduce you to her! She makes the most amazing bags and they’re produced in the USA. Her line is only about three years old and she is becoming a staple among stores and bloggers everywhere. Her Mingle Mingle Mini {which I’m wearing} is an instant classic and the Frisky Biz Wristlet is amazing for nights out! The Mingle Mingle Mini comes in eight prints so there’s bound to be one you’ll love. I paired mine with a silk Elizabeth McKay top {similars linked below} and black AG denim

Fair Isle Sweater

similar} / Bottoms: J. Crew / Booties: J. Crew

Fairisle sweaters are a winter staple. From ski trips to Christmas parties, it’s the perfect sweater for the season and I love their Nordic look too! This one is past season J. McLaughlin but this season’s version is gold and black! I’ve linked it above along with similar {and more affordable} ones below. Is there a Fairisle sweater you love? And how/where are you wearing this winter?!

The Buffalo Check

Leo & Sage {℅ Bluetique} / Bottoms: AG Jeans / Scarf: J. Crew / Boots: Tory Burch / Bag: Louis Vuitton

Everyone loves a good Buffalo Check and this scarf is perfect for pulling off the look without being overpowering. This one is currently 30% off making it less than $35! It’s made of wool and cashmere and feels so soft against my skin {not itchy like some scarves can be}. I love layering it over sweaters, turtlenecks, and of course throwing it on with a classic jacket. My sweater is Leo & Sage {a brand everyone should check out!} and I love it for it’s subtle sparkle. I finished my look with my favorite boots this season and a classic tote. I’ve linked my whole look below, including bags that offer the same look and function but don’t break the bank!
