Way to Blue

today’s closetcast: from a distance

Just your basic pair of off white khakis and a t-shirt right? Not quite, as these slouchy pants are by the ever luxurious Theyskens’ Theory and are the softest leather. Not so basic after all. After coveting these for months, I found them on eBay for literally a fraction of the original price and seriously thought it was a scam. But when they arrived in the mail, I realized I just lucked out.

Was feeling that shades of blue complemented these best, and well, any excuse to carry my Clare Vivier bag is a given.

What do you guys think of this look?

Don’t you love when a pair of heels can make the remainder of your look seemingly effortless? These heels are exactly that. A simple turtleneck sweater and my basic black pants and the look is complete. Schutz Shoes was born in Brazil and the brand creates shoes that are sexy but completely wearable.

Designed in unique and beautiful navy blue calfhair with navy leather straps, these heels are one of the favorite items in my closet to date! What do you guys think of them? How would you style them?

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday and Happy New Year! I wanted to put up a post showing the latest sale finds from the flurry of holiday sales that overwhelmed my inbox this winter. I could not resist these items and am so excited to style them in some funky new outfit posts coming up soon!

As I reflect upon my 2013, I just wanted to send a HUGE “THANK YOU!” to all of my amazing readers. You guys make this all worth it and I look forward to your comments and “likes” every day! Thank you so much! Here’s to 2014!!

Been out of the blogging loop for a week or so and I apologize! I finished up the last of my exams and just needed a breather with family and friends. It’s been so much fun just enjoying the holidays and relaxing.

Playing favorites with this look as these pieces are oldies – but goodies. The Zara sheepskin jacket was a great find a couple years ago and I haven’t let go of it yet. I love the soft leather material and the sheepskin lining – not to mention its warmth!

The angora sweater is another favorite that always manages to find itself being worn when I am having one of those “I don’t know what to wear days.”

Anyway – I’ll be back in full swing and blogging up a storm once again. Thanks for all your lovely comments! They are such a highlight to my day! XO

The rucksack is a fun silhouette for fall when executed properly. I love these two designs above as they are a far cry from tacky mini backpacks and hold on to sophisticated elements I can appreciate. Specifically, the black leather and minimalist hardware which together create an understated handbag that is unique in its silhouette but functional in its design.

When it comes to handbags, are you the type to splurge on trendy pieces like this or on more iconic and timeless pieces like (in my opinion) the Givenchy Antigona or Gucci Soho? So when it comes to a handbag that is admittedly a “seasonal” piece, is it best to splurge or save? The Row bag on the left is absolutely stunning. But the $3900 price-tag can be a tough pill to swallow. On the right, Zara at a mere $179. Which is best?
