Scarf: SoCal Gems Blazer: Banana Republic / Jeans: Genetic Denim / Booties: Sam Edelman / Sunnies: Karen Walker / Bag: Carla Mancini

One of my favorite outfits to wear to school in the Fall is a blazer, booties, and a huge scarf. It’s so easy and comfortable for sitting on the rug with the kids all day, but the blazer still makes the look polished. This scarf is absolutely delicious in person, and it’s on sale for under $25!! I’m also in love with Carla Mancini bags, and I get them at a discount whenever they’re on HauteLook (they’re sold out now, but check back every now and then if you’re interested!) Hope you guys have a fabulous weekend!!

winter white & a pop of color


I feel like I’ve probably made my feelings on white-all-year-long pretty clear. But in case you are just tuning in, white is one of my favorite colors (oookkk, teachers, it’s one of my favorite absences of color) and I see no reason to pack it away when the weather turns chilly! Today’s post is a look at one of my favorite ways to do winter white. I start with my favorite white skinnies, add brown leather details, a textured scarf, cozy wool trench, and a fabulous wrap sweater (more details on this amazing boutique below), and there you have it: a chic winter look that definitely won’t give you seasonal affect disorder. Which, by the way, I’m almost positive I have. Excuse the fact that my skin matches my pants, I seriously need sun…IMG_1418 IMG_1421 IMG_1430 IMG_1432 IMG_1435 IMG_1449Outfit Details:
