The Weekender + Last Week’s Outfits

Last week’s favorites links + last week’s outfits, including the coziest cowl neck sweater dress, an affordable cashmere sweater and how to layer bracelets with a watch. 

Happy Monday! This post technically still counts as the Weekender since it’s a long holiday weekend for me. 🙂

It’s been a great weekend so far, with two dates with Tommy (we had NOT seen much of each other lately so we prioritized some time together), some coffee dates with some friends, two long runs, a long walk with Maizey, an hour at the driving range and a bunch of errand running! I’m so happy that it’s going to be in the 60s for the next 10 days here in Winston!

Here are the links I’ve loved lately!

  • I love this photo. Something about heels in the snow just feels like, darn it, I’m going to be a lady no matter what. 🙂
  • Trader Joe’s Whole 30 Haul. I’m not doing the Whole30 but I know a lot of people are right now. This was a great post by my friend Jen! (I love seeing what people buy at Trader Joe’s, Whole30 or not!)

Last Week’s Outfits

And here are my outfits from the past week. By the way, thank you so much for letting me know that you’re enjoying the fashion posts and find them useful! I really appreciate the feedback and I’m having fun sharing what I’m wearing. I’ll do a post on how works since I know it can be kind of confusing at first. Basically, it emails you all my outfit details if you’re signed up for (which is free) and you “like” one of my photos on Instagram. But again, I’ll do a post in more details.

If you want to see previous outfits I’ve shared, you can always use the Fashion category on my blog, or go to Shop My Instagram under the Shop tab.

I love love this dress. It’s a wool-cashmere blend, but somehow not itchy. (I usually can’t wear wool.) It’s so cozy and super flattering. Tommy loved it too. 🙂 It’s currently an extra 40% off sale! I’m loving over-the-knee boots  lately too. I was a little nervous to buy them, but they’re so fun!

I’m loving the Halogen V-Neck Cashmere sweaters. I have two now. They’re affordable and so soft. For reference, this purple one is a XS Petite and the white one below is a Small Petite, and it fits a bit looser.

Knowing how to layer bracelets with a watch is something that’s always a challenge for me, but I think this turned out cute!

Whenever I wear my leather jacket, it feels like an alter-ego. 😉 I love it though and it’s a great investment piece. I’ve loved having mine. Plus, it’s surprisingly warm. I bought a cropped one that’s also collarless because I’m petite, and I think less is more with a leather jacket!

Mine is a few years old, but this and this are almost identical. And they’re both on sale!

I hope you had a great weekend and I hope you have a great week! I have a post coming up about Blue Apron, which I recently tried again, and I’m working on a Day in the Life post for ya, as requested!

    I love all your outfits… that being said I’m doing “no shopping” as one of my Whole30 goals and it has been pretty painful, but I’ve stayed strong haha.

      I’m impressed!! With Whole30 and the no shopping! Good job! I’m on a mission to get rid of nasty clothes. I legit threw out 5 tops in the last week that all have holes in them…and, I had been wearing them with holes. So bad. haha.

    Where is that white blouse from that you are wearing under your leather jacket? I love it!
