French Inspired T-Shirts

My short weekend begins tomorrow and I'm ecstatic! I can't wait to hop on a plane and visit my family for Thanksgiving and them some.

I got this French inspired turtle neck from Zara. I fell in love with the cute print and different texture. I can't wait to dress up and dress down this turtle neck. I've also been wearing this simple necklace from H&M and I love it because it completes just about every outfit. I listed a few other shirts that are easy to either dress casually with or dress up when needed, which is perfect for holiday parties.

Fuzzy Sweater

It's Thursday!! One more day, I can't wait to do festive holiday things this weekend. We are heading to the Michigan Lights Festival and watching fireworks on Saturday. The weather is finally dropping in Chicago after an amazing, warm fall. I'm sad to feel the chilly winds back again, but at least I can wear this fuzzy sweater again. I bought it at Target for its warmth and texture.

Knee High Boots

I love knee high boots! I finally got a pair for work and play. I paired it with a leather jacket and pants, silver necklace and plain button up for your casual street style look.

Essential Basics

I've come to realize that having certain basics have become a lot more useful than the things that are "in style" for the season. I know that this statement seems obvious but I've been prone to buying something because it's cute in the moment rather than thinking,"What could this go with?" When you have the basics down it becomes a lot easier to dress sharper and look more chic. I love this outfit because it's simple yet the added accessories make me look way more put together than I actually am. Think about it, basics are a guaranteed thing to throw on in the morning when you aren't looking to try hard and an easy thing to pair with when you are looking to pull off a new look.

I found this oversized sweater at Primark, the scarf at H&M and the shoes at Zara. I listed some basics I can't live without and some I'm currently on the look out for!


I hope you all had a great Halloween weekend! Personally I'm still in recovery mode. I purchased my first poncho at H&M for $35 (which makes me feel extremely classy)! I also got a great deal on these heels at Target for $20 with the Cartwheel app where they had a sale going for 40% off boots. I linked the same exact pair down below and similar ponchos.
