- Outfits


I’ve been layering up with the recent cold weather (and this jacket is NOT enough to be outside more than 5 minutes) and decided to wear an all black ensemble this past Saturday with a touch of color in my plaid short-sleeve jacket. I haven’t worn my black skinnies in ages, even though they are a favorite pair of mine that used to wear out all the time. And yes, socks with my wedged booties were a must this weekend (keeping the feet warm and toasty).

Hope you have a fabulous Monday!
