I recently went on a little Tar-jay shopping spree. Do you remember this cozy sweater tunic from last week? Well this drawstring sweater dress was another one of my finds. I was in need of a few cool weather pieces, and the BOGO sale Target was running was a little too good to resist.
For those of you who work in offices, do they keep your buildings ice cold? Mine is like a perpetual icebox, regardless of the season. Without layering up, I’d spend half the day shivering. (So maybe I can blame cold office environments for my hot tea obsession?!) Layering with cardigans is one of my favorite ways to stay warm while keeping a professional look. To mix it up, I recently broke out my oversized long cardigan and paired it with a polka dot popover.
Cardigan: J.Crew (similar under $30), Top: J.Crew Factory (similar), Pants: Gap, Shoes: J.Crew Factory, Bag: Michael Kors (MK option), Necklace: Stella & Dot Monogram
The last time I wore my long cardi was for a relaxed weekend look with a plain white tee and leggings. I love how versatile a good cardigan is!
Now I’d love to see how you’re remixing your wardrobe!

Have I mentioned how much I’ve been loving leggings lately? (I love them, love them, love them.) But at the same time I was struggling with finding a pair that were thick enough. I had a fleece-lined pair from Target, but didn’t love the elastic bottom. And my non-lined ones seemed entirely too thin, especially since it’s getting progressively cooler outside. But during a quick trip to Target last weekend, I happened across the perfect solution.
Any excuse to break out my black floppy hat is a good one. Having second (or maybe more like third!) day hair is one of the best ones. Aside from hiding unwashed locks, I think it does a pretty good job at distracting from a less than well-rested look too.
Major mama fail over here. Two Sundays ago (11/20) was Layla’s three month birthday, and I didn’t take her photos, which meant I couldn’t take them until this past weekend. (Darn those 4:30 pm sunsets!) In all fairness, we do have a lot going on right now, like going-back-to-work separation anxiety. Ugh. Is this what my dog goes through every time I leave the house? Somebody get me a thunder jacket. But enough about me, let’s talk Layla!
