Chasing Sunlight

Hi my loves! I’m so happy it’s finally Friday and the weekend is here! I plan to just go thrifting for some cute Christmas decor with J and just spend the rest relaxing with some movies and hot cocoa! (I mean, I don’t ask for much! lol) It’s getting more and more difficult to get decent consistent lighting for my pictures, as we approach winter, to the point where my sis and I felt like we were actually chasing the sun for some decent pictures! It was the best I could do to not have shadows covering parts of my face and outfit! Anyway, today’s look was loosely inspired by fellow bloggers. I swear y’all really push me to be more creative with my looks! I wore this fuzzy cable cardigan over a sleeveless dress cinched in at the waist with a skinny belt to pull it together. This is also a great way to keep warm and transition summer dresses into fall/winter.
Recently, my friends at Simply Be UK contacted me to check out their website and were sweet enough to let me pick out something I liked. After perusing their amazing website, I decided to check out their accessory section since I was on the hunt for a quality fall/winter handbag. There were so many I liked, but when I came across this teal beauty, I knew it was the bag for me! It’s very reminiscent of another popular shopper bag that everyone has! πŸ˜‰ But this bag is so well made, has compartments and space enough for everything I need to carry, very sturdy, comes with a shoulder strap, and is in such an amazing vibrant teal color for fall! So if you’re in the market for a great quality, gorgeous, and unique bag, head over to Simply Be and grab one for yourself or as a gift to someone else!
Style Guide: When trying this layering trick, wear a sweater that is an accent color to the dress you are wearing to give the look balance and add texture. Cinching the waist with a cognac belt, gives the overall look more shape while complementing the boots.

    Such a lovely comfy outfit! I love your cardigan! And those boots are so cute and versatile.

    Yea the bag is similar if not exact to the Zara Shopping Tote that everyone has (myself included) I want to sell it on Ebay at times, but remember it could come in handy in the near future! Love how you've worn this cardigan with boots. It looks warm, comfortable, and chic.
