weekend

{source}

TGIF! I’m so glad it’s finally Friday. It’s been a long week (these holiday hours at the mall are longer and it’s making me sleepy!) and I can wait for a cozy night in tonight and a friend’s holiday party tomorrow. Boston is supposed to get hit with some serious winter weather and I’m looking forward to some downtown and (if I don’t get called into work) making some beef stew. What are you planning on doing this weekend?

While looking back at my Fashion and Beauty Pinterest board, I noticed I’ve pinned some layered looks that not only will be great for the cold weather over the next few months, but also use clothes I already have (with room for maybe one or two little additions).

I have pretty much this entire outfit. My plaid shirt has more black in it, so I think I would do plaid shirt, black sweater, camel blazer.

Love these layered neutrals.

My colored vest is orange, but I like the idea of layering it over my navy and white gingham button up.

Vest OVER the blazer? Love it! Adds warmth without restricting movement the way a blazer under a coat does.

I love the idea of white jeans in the winter but I’ve never had the guts to do it. Maybe this is the year.

What are your favorite layered looks?

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I got swept up in all the travel and food and relaxing and realized I haven’t even posted. 
On another note, I saw this excellent sounding winter cocktail on Mark and Graham's blog and immediately shared it with my coworkers. It’s always great to have yummy signature cocktail ideas for events! (Side note: have you SEEN William Sonoma/Pottery Barn’s new concept?!?! I’m in serious L-O-V-E.)
How was your weekend?
