Hello Dolls,

I started this post to share my Christmas eve outfit because I wore my favorite copped sweater. I then thought to myself, why don’t I dedicate this post to exactly that: my cropped sweater obsession? The cropped sweater is a must have for every wardrobe this season. You can style it with a high waisted skirt, high waisted pant, or over a loose blouse with leggings or a skirt. It’s a great piece to dress up or down and keep you cozy all winter long. I love bulky sweaters as well, but feel that the cropped sweater is more flattering and gives you a more polished look. Here are a few of my favorite cropped sweater looks followed by some sweater picks. The first looks is one that I wore on Christmas eve which I also wore at work. As you can see, you can wear it with boots or pumps. Yes ladies, occasionally I do wear outfits more than once, how un-fashionista of me, but if I love something, I definitely wear it again.

Thanks for reading!

Hello Dolls,

I cannot believe fall is here so soon! To celebrate the turning of the season, I present to you my first fall outfit! Given my Russian roots, it’s quite ironic how much I absolutely can’t stand cold weather, but I do love being able to pull out my jackets, boots, ponchos, and all the fun fall layering pieces!

When I put this outfit together, I was feeling casual and edgy.  I wanted my outfit to match my new car – so I went with this blazer that I snagged from H&M in LA the last time I was there. I particularly love this piece because it can be dressed up or down. The faux leather on the sleeves is everything. I am not usually crazy about graphic tees, but I couldn’t pass this one up for obvious reasons. If you are looking for a casual yet trendy outfit, you can never go wrong with dark jeans and a blazer. The jeans: True Religion, is probably my top 2 favorite brand of jeans, they fit amazing and these are incredibly comfortable.  I had a very busy day with a checklist of errands, so I decided to go with a pair of my super comfy Vince Camuto sandals, otherwise, I would have loved to wear boots or pumps.

Oh, and yes, I got a new car because my old one was totaled when a lady plowed through it while it was parked in my office lot, then proceeded to drive 25 feet into the office building. Yep, that was quite the day, nothing like looking out your office window and seeing your car smashed into a tree. Thank God no one was hurt!

Bye bye Benzie. Even though it was just a car, this was my wedding present from my husband, and I’ve had a lot of wonderful memories with this car!
