Cozy & Neutral Lookbook

Ann Taylor Colorblock Sweater Coat  |  Trouve Faux Leather Leggings (similar)  |

Nordstrom Cloche  |  Chanel Bag  |  Pour La Victoire Suede Irina Pumps – on sale!  |

t+j Designs jewelry:  Black Pyramid Crystal Bracelet  |  Black Drop Luxe Earrings

Happy 2012 everyone!  Catching up on work, blogging, blog reading, and everything else.  We finally took our tree down yesterday.  Next up – a little spring cleaning and hopefully I can share some details of the nursery coming along (this week I’m 23 weeks along).

This sweater was a December purchase from Ann Taylor at 50% off the sale price.  I think I got it for $40. Cozy, stylish and affordable; I also got this sweater which I posted on a previous lookbook.  In working with clients in early October, I feel back in love with Ann Taylor.  Their sweaters are basic, stylish and wearable for everyday.  I signed up for their email updates and they often have great promotions.  If you haven’t been in a while, I would definitely recommend looking at them again.

Starting the new year relaxed, happy, and busy.  Hoping everyone got exactly what they wanted and got some time to relax too.

    Love how you kept the outfit simple and let the accessories and bold lips stand out. Also, I just realized you have an accounting background like me. Fashionable accountants are a rare commodity :-)
