Styling a Sweatshirt

styling a sweatshirt

It’s one of those mornings that has me wanting to stay in bed for an extra hour. Actually, that’s every morning! What is it about waking up that leaves me feeling anything but refreshed? Even though I’m a girl who loves clothes, you’d be surprised how difficult it is to get me dressed everyday! If you’re lucky enough to work in an environment that doesn’t require a pencil skirt, then you might be able to get away with my favorite relaxed look!

cute sweatshirts

Cute sweatshirts and the perfect denim jeans (my favorites are the “Brooke Skinny” from Lucky Brand) make for a great comfy outfit. It’s the standard uniform for moms and teens alike, but I’m here to class it up a bit! Quite honestly, there’s a lot you can do with these basic outfit components. Adding a scarf or faux fur vest can be a chic way to create interest in an outfit, but my favorite way to accessorize a sweatshirt is by adding a statement necklace!

The one I’m wearing is from Ann Taylor and the purple pairs so nicely with the pink in my sweatshirt. Statement necklaces shouldn’t compete with the outfit, they should complement it instead! When I see a great statement necklace that can be worn with several things in my closet, I invest. The trick to wearing these with sweatshirts is making sure that they are long enough to wear over the sweatshirt so they can be seen and not hidden by fabric. Here are a few links to sweatshirts and necklaces that pair well together!

How to Pack for Your Holiday Travels

Good morning loves! I can’t believe Thanksgiving is this week. Autumn has come and gone way too fast. Hopefully, most of you are spending the holiday with those you love. My family usually spends the day together. All of my grandparents have passed away and extended family lives pretty far from Maryland. I’m not going to lie, it can be pretty lonely during this time of the year. However, I’m grateful that I have my parents and sister. Some people don’t even have that.

If you’re like many Americans, then you might have travel plans for Thanksgiving. In recent years, many Americans are opting to drive instead of fly, but if you’re one of the few who is flying, then I’ve created a little visual guide for a few things you might want to take with you in your very limited luggage allowance.



First, I highly recommend you take boots with you because they go with almost everything. Taking a pair of flats in a fun print like these Steve Madden ones and a pair of black heels covers all the other bases of what your holiday travels may require in terms of footwear.

Accessories wise, you can’t go wrong with a thick infinity scarf and mittens. For jewelry, your best bet is on a string of pearls and diamond studs. I always travel light when it comes to jewelry because I hate dealing with tangled necklaces and things like that.

When I travel, I take two pairs of jeans with me, one in a dark wash and the other black. With these I usually wear a cardigan like the sparkly one above and then a light weight blouse. You might also consider taking a hoodie or sweatshirt for cuddling up in and watching a few christmas classics with your family. Don’t forget to pack a tank to go with the cardigan!

For Thanksgiving dinner, depending on your family’s style, take a nice dress like this BCBG Maxazria find. If you’re a little more casual, take a jersey or shift dress.

Finally, this may seem obvious, but pack your pjs! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve forgot that basic necessity. Remember your socks and undergarments as well. I’ve forgotten those too and regretted it.

I hope you enjoy your weekend and realize how blessed you are!
