Happy 2015 y’all!

 I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Years!

After a little holiday break, I’m slowly but surely getting back into the swing of things. Does anyone else feel like they like sometimes you need a vacation from your vacation? #MondaysAreHard. Things are settling down, and I cannot wait to see what the new year has in store! I’m headed to Florida next week, and I am definitely looking forward to being somewhere where I don’t have to chip away ice to get into my car.

Every girl needs a good blazer. It’s just an undisputed fact. Kind of like having a good pair of flats, black pumps (which I still don’t own…) or a chambray shirt, they’re just staples, and you don’t really know what you’re missing or how much you will use them until you get one! I love the structure on this one, with the higher popped collar and fitted tomboy structure; it’s a super flattering shape on anyone! Pair it with a fun graphic tee or a button down for a dressier look, and it works either way.

To add a little fun to my look, I threw on my favorite LAW Designs tassel necklace, which has become a staple in my winter wardrobe! Most of the time this season, I’m bundled up looking like the Michelin Man, so I need my jewels to be a little bigger and lower to go over my layers, and this one fits the bill perfectly! The owner and creator of these gorgeous jewels, Lindsey is the sweetest thing (read her story here); she has a cat named Megatron and is all about finding beauty in imperfection. I’m all about jewelry that has meaning. I have my eye on this little pretty for the summer!

Y’all might have noticed someone dark and handsome in some of these pictures! I finally managed to convince my boyfriend, Armaan, to hop in a few of my blog photos! He’s always going on about being camera shy, but he was totally hamming it up in these, a natural. I feel like I should also disclose that we did NOT intentionally match for these photos. Only after getting home and looking at them, did we both realize that it’s a total tan overload. He’s headed to India for a month later this week, so I’ve been getting all the time in with him that I can! Do any of you unexpectedly match with your significant others?

What He Wore:

Coat: Banana Republic / Shirt: J.Crew / Sweater: ASOS / Chinos: ASOS / Boots: J.Crew

Have a great first week of 2015!

    You two are just precious! And i'm loving the tan overload 🙂 I don't own a single pair of classic black pumps either. I feel like I have been on the hunt for actual EVER.

    The other day Jake and I both put on a mustard baseball tee and we both refused to change so we matched the entire day. #couplesthatmatchtogetherstaytogether? Hope you had the happiest New Year, doll!
