Daily Look: Mesh and Lace

Cardigan, Bracelet: J. Crew // Skirt: Anthropologie // Necklace: Banana Republic // Tights: Ann Taylor // Shoes: Nine West // Camisole: Forever 21

This outfit is all about the details. Such a monochromatic look might be a tad boring if it weren't for the ruffles on the cardigan and the detailed embroidery of the skirt. I am always drawn to pieces that have something unique or special about them; fun details make getting dressed a lot more interesting.

Twin Styled: Office Party

Office Party

It's the most wonderful time of the year! The Christmas carols echoing in my brain, and my frenzy to hang something shiny on every surface of my apartment can mean only one thing: the holiday party season is upon us. I love an excuse to get dolled up, and nothing pardons an addiction to sparkle like Christmas.

For this look, I decided on a sequined cocktail dress accented with evergreen and gold. I think the black backdrop gives the look a chicness that can support festive accessories without crossing over into Mrs. Claus territory. And I'd be confident enough to schmooze with the best of them in those heels; pass the eggnog!

Daily Look: Blonde on Blonde

Cardigan: Gap // Skirt, Shoes: Banana Republic // Bracelets: Target // Tights: Ann Taylor

I love the combination of creamy, golden colors in this skirt, especially since I have very few similarly colored items in my closet. I know that, in general, you're not supposed to wear colors that are too similar to your natural coloring, but there's something about this blonde on blonde look that just works for me.

Daily Look: Streets of Saugatuck

Sweater and Tights: Banana Republic // Skirt: Gap // Boots: Nine West // Jacket: BB Dakota

I wore this outfit for an afternoon of shopping in the resort town of Saugatuck, Michigan. There are plenty of great boutiques, restaurants, and bakeries within walking distance of the cottage where we are staying, and we had a great time exploring and enjoying the holiday decorations.

Daily Look: Window Shopping

Sweater: Loft // Pants: Gap // Shoes: Aldo // Earrings: Kohl's

Today we did some window shopping in Saugatuck, Michigan. The city is adorable and filled with gift shops that are already decorated for Christmas. It was chilly for a Texas girl, but nothing some cocoa from a local chocolate shop and a thick sweater couldn't ward off. I hope you are all having a great holiday!

Daily Look: Thanksgiving 2011

Lauren's Look: Sweater: Loft // Jeans: Urban Outfitters // Boots: Nine West // Earrings: Banana Republic

Sam's Look: Sweater: Loft // Pants: J. Crew // Boots: Sam Edelman via Nordstrom Rack // Earrings and Hairband: Francesca's

Happy Black Friday! Sam and I had an amazing time cooking, eating, and catching up yesterday, and we hope your Thanksgiving (if you celebrate it) was wonderful too. We hadn't seen each other since Sam visited during the summer, and we had fun taking our pictures together. We both went with cozy, casual looks; you can't wear anything too tight on Thanksgiving! We take our food pretty seriously around here, and overeating is a must.

Daily Look: Cranberry Sauce

Dress: Loft // Belt, Earrings, Boots: Banana Republic // Tights: Nicole Miller // Bangles: Annie Gogglyn // Bracelet: The Limited

I love the look of colorful tights, but I sometimes have a hard time finding outfits that they work well with. This otherwise all-black ensemble is just the ticket. Without these tights, this look would be a little on the bland side, but I find that the pop of cheerful cranberry makes this outfit a lot more fun.

Speaking of cranberries, can you believe that Thanksgiving is tomorrow? We will celebrating (aka stuffing our faces) with my mom, stepdad, and Sam, who are all coming in from Texas to visit us. I can't wait to see them later today!

Daily Look: Ikat's Got Your Tongue

Dress: Francesca's // Shoes: Franco Sarto via Endless // Earrings: Etsy

Well, it is another surprisingly warm fall day here in Texas. I leave tomorrow to visit Lauren, so I am enjoying bare legs before bundling up against the Midwestern chill in the morning. I am soso excited to see my sister and brother-in-law, and to pull my jackets and sweaters out from the back of my closet. I am ready to get cooking, baking, chatting, and laughing with my other half!
