Laser Cut and Leather

editededited-3edited-9edited-4edited-5edited-8edited-7Dress: Maeve Lasercut Sheath // Jacket: Love Token Quilted Faux Leather Jacket // Shoes: J.Crew (similar, similar, similar) // Clutch: Kate Spade (similar, similar, similar) // Earrings: BaubleBar 360 Studs (similar)

When I saw this dress on the rack, I immediately fell in love with the delicate laser cut detail. Lucky for you, this stunning and unique dress is on sale at Anthropologie and this classic faux leather jacket is on sale at Neiman Marcus right now! I am also really loving these pearl back earrings, and for those of us who cannot afford the Dior originals, BaubleBar makes a lovely and affordable pair. xoxo

It is no secret that I hate cold weather, but one thing I hate more than the cold is a scarf that is too short or small to keep me warm. This blanket scarf from ASOS is very versatile and most importantly warm! It can be folded over into a poncho or wrapped multiple times around the neck, but either way you are guaranteed to be warm in scarf this large. Of course I had to get the scarf in black and white but it also comes in deep red and ASOS had multiple other patterns and colors. This scarf is a must if you hate the cold just as much as I do. xoxo

Plaid Poncho

I tend to be a very cold natured person, which made me very hesitant to have dinner on the patio with my friends last week. While the cold temperatures in Dallas are considered warm to many parts of the United Sates, my opinion is that 40 degrees might as well be freezing.  Luckily I had decided to wear this poncho that evening and found myself to be the only warm person at the table, even with the outdoor heater. It was just like wearing a blanket, only it was cut to fit over my shoulders perfectly. This poncho was much easier to move in than a jacket and completed the outfit instead of taking away from it like most jackets do. I will be stocking up on ponchos for the rest of winter and making this warm piece a staple in my wardrobe!
