Happy Monday, friends! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Ours was full but fun. My son’s birthday party yesterday was really nice. We always enjoy hanging out with family, and it was good to catch up with everyone.
Today is his actual birthday, so I officially have a 17-year-old. One more year, and he can vote. I know it’s cliche, but it’s hard to believe. Fortunately most of his close friends are older, so it has prepared me a bit to see them going through all of the next steps — getting a driver’s license, looking at colleges, applying for jobs… adult stuff. I realize we keep our kids pretty young in our culture. A few generations ago, he might have been married at 17, but it doesn’t make it any easier as a mom to get used to the idea that I almost have an adult son. Yikes!
Tomorrow Cyndi and I launch our 25 Days of Winter Fashion! WOOT! Today I’m putting together one last Instagram Roundup since I won’t be doing these for the next few weeks. This is a mixture of daily outfits that I’m actually wearing as well as outfits from the blog and previews of posts to come.
I often get questions on my Instagram posts about where I got things. I always link what I’m wearing with LIKEtoKNOW.it — and if you don’t know what that is, I’ve linked a page at the top of my blog, What is LIKEtoKNOW.it?, that explains how to register and get emails with product links. Or you can always come to my blog and click on Shop My Instagram at the top and click on any of the images to get links to what I’m wearing without registering with LIKEtoKNOW.it. I hope that helps!
Okay, let’s get this party started!
I’m obsessed with this Cozy Rib Detail Relaxed Turtleneck. I realized that I didn’t have a black turtleneck or basic black sweater in my closet anymore, so I picked this up at Nordstrom. And how cute are these beet red boots!?! I wore this outfit last weekend to go to dinner with my husband and then to the Hooters concert.

I wore this outfit last Sunday to church. It’s simple, but I like the pop of purple with the black jacket and jeans, and I wore pewter ballet flats and carried a grey bag to lighten up the outfit. I first went for my black pointy toe flats, and then I decided I needed something to add a little more interest. I tried a scarf on with this but ended up wearing a simple pendant. Scarves are fun, but this is more slimming, and it was less to futz with when I was teaching Sunday School to the preschoolers.

This popular scarf sold out AGAIN. So bummed. I find myself wearing it about every other day. My Bernardo Packable Down Hooded Jacket is a great piece to have. I love the flattering fit and how you can compress it into practically nothing in your suitcase. The full details on this outfit are in THIS POST.
A simple outfit I wore one day last week…I’m obsessed with camel right now. I love how it pairs with black and burgundy. I sized down to a small in both the vest and the sweater.
J.Crew Excursion Quilted Down Vest (25% off with code WARMSTYLE) // Halogen Crewneck Lightweight Cashmere Sweater // DL1961 Emma Power Legging Jeans in Token // similar burgundy suede flats // necklace and earrings are old
I wore this sweater dress to church a few weeks ago. I love the fit and how versatile it is. Full details in THIS POST.
My friend Carly sent me her Perfect Black Tee because I like her white one so much. It has the same great fit and quality material, and I like the subtle texture to the material. It’s almost more grey than black, but it’s a great piece that I know I’ll wear a lot.
My favorite cowl neck tunic is 40% off again at LOFT, making it $35.
LOFT Cowl Tunic Sweater // AG Raw Hem Legging Ankle Jeans (similar for less) // my Stella & Dot Covet Sunday Bucket Bag // Double Sided Pearl Earrings // my Stella & Dot Pearl Spike Cuff Bracelet // Kate Spade Bracelet Watch // Maui Jim Moonbow Sunnies c/o // nails: CND Fedora
This is another casual outfit I wore this week. The top and jeans are old, but I’ll link to similar styles. I love pairing stripes and leopard.
We photographed this outfit over the weekend. I can’t wait to share more about it later this week!
I wore this outfit to a friend’s birthday party on Saturday night. This pink turtleneck is from J.Crew last year, and it has the prettiest detail on the sleeves. I don’t usually like tight fitting turtlenecks, but this one seems to work. I’ll link to a few similar below.
And finally, I didn’t get around to posting this to Instagram, but this is what I wore to church yesterday. So annoyed that yet another Nordstrom top is sold out, but I got a few comments on my LOFT Scuba Skinny Pants. They are so flattering. If you are in need of a pair of black dressy pants, definitely check these out. Also, they are 40% off right now!
I would typically wear a long pendant with this outfit to break up the dark color and to create the illusion of an hourglass shape, but since this top is already quite fitted, I decided to try this shorter chain link necklace, and I really like the effect. Since there’s so much dark going on in the outfit, I feel like the bright gold necklace draws attention to my face. Either would work, but I thought this was fun for a change.
And that’s a wrap! It will be a while before I do another one of these because I’ll be focusing on 25 Days of Winter Outfits and gift guides and other holiday related content for the next few weeks, but I’ll still be posting my daily outfits on Instagram if you want to follow along!
