long

I absolutely love long duster style sweaters. I can not get enough of them…I think they elevate the look of whatever you’re wearing. Most that I find are mid-calf length so when I see one that goes to the floor I have to have it!

This black sweater is super simple and goes with anything. It’s comfortable and stylish. Here I paired it with jeans and thigh-high boots but it would work just as well with a dress.

I’m getting ready to head to LA for Thanksgiving and I’m really excited to have some down time. But, before we leave we will be hitting Lancaster for the Extraordinary Give…hope to see you out and about supporting our community and one of your favorite organizations! Enjoy.

ruffle sleeve

I generally don’t wear big sleeves and especially not anything with ruffles. But, this is more of a “wing” style than a ruffle and it feels really pretty when I wear it. The sleeves drape nicely and give a simple black blouse an upgraded look and feel. It would go as well with a skirt as it does with jeans.

To offset the formal feel of the this top, I’m putting it with distressed jeans. These jeans are one of my favorites and you’ve seen them many times. There’s nothing like a good fitting pair of jeans! To keep them that way I always take them off and fold them neatly. I stack all my jeans on a shelf rather than hanging them and I don’t throw them on the floor or toss over a chair.

Today, I’m also bringing back a fad from years ago…the choker. I’m looking forward to pulling out some of my old jewelry and wearing it again. Look for these everywhere this Summer. My earrings were a find at ABC Carpet and Home on a trip to NYC and while I normally don’t wear orange and black—too Halloween for me—I thought they added the right pop of color and interest. A vintage bag and fun boots finish the look today!
