Pretty Layered Lookbook





Zara Leopard Trench (similar on sale)  |  DVF Sweater Cardigan  |  Bella Dahl Chambray Shirt (similar)  |
Akira Top  |  Forever 21 Skinny Denim  |  Jimmy Choo Boots  |

Forever 21 Cable Knit Beanie  |  Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C. Fuschia Clutch  |

t+j Designs jewelry:  Gold Baubles Necklace  |  Crystal Stainless Steel Bangle Purple, Pink, Diamond

Layering up for the cold winter season is sometimes a difficult task.  I hate looking bulky so I mix patterns and colors with a pair of skinny jeans to give the outfit dimension and brighten up some neutral basics I have on.  The fuschia beanie I got from Forever 21 is now one of my favorites (for only $5.50) and I recently won this Rebecca Minkoff bag from her Mini M.A.C. giveaway.  I was super excited because not only was I coveting this bag, but I got it in the best color.  Check out her website and blog, she has giveaways and great new products.  

I am excited to head home for Christmas this year with my hubby and my yorkie.  Getting the last of my shopping done this week online.  Don’t forget to check out our $20 holiday specials and with promo code GIFTS, get an additional 20% off your total; a special piece for only $16!  

I am also offering my readers an awesome t+j Designs giveaway!  Easy three steps to enter and win a gorgeous necklace.

I love the fact that you (all) take the time and effort to stop by, read my posts and even place a comment! You make my day with doing that!On my blog I am now showing that some brands (like H&M and Zara) are copycatting from huge brands. Is this ok or are H&M and Zara going too far? I’d love to hear your opinion about it!Hope to hear soon from you, until then… Merry Christmas!Love, Rock 'n Style
