Winter Maxi Lookbook

My husband and I love exploring new restaurants and one of our favorites chefs, Takashi opened a new ramen place, Slurping Turtle, in Chicago and we checked it out last week.  We typically get the ramen but the bento boxes looked delicious and my hubby and I shared one along with some other delicious appetizers.  

Surprisingly our weather in Chicago hasn't been too cold (yet) and between the pregnancy and weather, sometimes I struggle to figure out what to wear.  I saw my Forever 21 maxi skirt I purchased this summer and decided I wanted to wear it.  The easiest way to transition a summer skirt into fall/winter is by pairing it with a cozy sweater and some great boots.  My lovely gloves were a present for my birthday from my sister in law.  Not only are they are a great color and design, but they work on my iphone!  They have little tips on the finger that make it workable on touch phones.  

I've been doing my fair share of holiday shopping, but I can't seem to get away from items I want myself.    Shopbop is having their end of season sale and I had to take a look!  Red is my favorite color and I've been in a search of a red dress for the holidays.  I'm loving these three on SALE!:

And the perfect jewels to go with the red dresses:

Gold Drop Luxe Earrings   |  Gold Tassel Earrings    |  Black Drop Luxe Earrings  |
