Double Hoodie, Double the Cuteness

One of my favorite things to through on while lounging at home is hooded sweatshirts.  Many of mine though are not cute enough for me to feel put together.  This double hooded sweatshirt on the other hand is double the cuteness!  I love the rich burgundy color that is perfect for fall and into winter.  The grey lining of the sweatshirt brings in pattern mixing subtly for those who are weary of too many patterns.

 

This outfit I wore out trick or treating with my boys last week.  It was cold here in Indiana so layers were a must!  I think the key to making a casual outfit look put together is  by making sure your hair is done and adding a few accessories.  Whether you curl your hair or throw it up in a messy bun both looks can create an overall affect of put togetherness.  Since it was chilly I decided to add a cute hat.  How do you dress casual, but still feel cute?

 

 

 

Girl’s Night Out

A few nights ago, I met up with some of my favorite ladies from work at a new restaurant in town.  It seems like it has been ages since I have had a girl’s night out!  With summer break, we tend to lose touch with the craziness.  I know with the boys’ schedules there hasn’t been much downtime.  I had a great time catching up with everyone.  It was an evening spent laughing and chatting.

MY LOOK

When deciding what to wear I knew that I want to wear jeans.  I typically get really cold when I go to restaurants so I decided to dress in layers.  I knew that I wanted to wear this kimono from Outer Grace Boutique that I picked up last week.  I loved the floral details and the slight ruffled bottom!  I was drawn to this kimono, because of the ruffles and the colors.  This will be a great piece that I can transition into the early fall.

I debated between a cream tank or this bright yellow.  I decided (with some help from friends) on the yellow.  I love the color yellow, and whenever I wear it I feel happy!   I also thought the yellow helped bring out some of the colors in the flowers.

 

I have been wanting to add turquoise to every look this summer.  I decided to add it to this look through my Vera Bradley  cross body.  I love the additional pop of color that this bag brings to so many of my looks.  Since I already had pops of color through my jewelry, top, and bag I wanted to keep my shoes neutrals.  The cognac color with the gold details of these sandals were the perfect pair for this look.

I kept my accessories simple and went with some of my favorite pieces.  This bracelet from Wink of Pink is one that I wear on a weekly basis. It is perfect for creating fun arm parties.  I decided to add my Kendra Scott bracelets for a finishing touch.  What are your favorite looks for a girl’s night out?
