Scotty Dogs & Turtlenecks

The turtleneck trend has been a favorite of mine this season. I have always loved wearing turtlenecks because I feel I can pull them off but I also love layering…my two favorite trends all in one. I wanted to experiment a little bit more with one of my favorite sweaters from J.Crew that I purchased 4 years ago. I was still pretty short when I bought it and still hadn’t grown into my body yet so I purchased an XXS (bad move, Lucy). The sweater itself fits pretty snug but it works, the sleeves however are an entirely different story. I tried layering the turtleneck underneath anyways where I was trying on outfit possibilities and I ended up loving how the stripes peek out towards the bottom of the sleeves. Shop the look below!

Adventuring in Kiel James Patrick

I spent the day yesterday adventuring with my friend, Sarah, at a local place in Richmond. Although the sun was warm and bright, the wind chill was insane. If anyone knows Virginia weather, they know it has a mind of its own. One day it can be 65 and sunny and the next it can be 23 with rain and sleet. I wanted to ensure that I would be toasty warm all day so I tried a new layered look.

Now y’all know how much I love to layer my clothing and I saw this idea floating around Pinterest and Instagram and I wanted to give it a go. It started off with my cashmere turtleneck from Ann Taylor and then my KJP Cozy Cabin Flannel over top all buttoned up. I left the top three buttons unbuttoned so I could style the turtleneck with the gold Sailor’s Keepsake necklace from KJP as well. For an extra layer of warmth I pulled my J.Crew Factory Herringbone vest to top it all off.

For pants I just stuck with a pair of J.Crew skinny jeans, camp socks, and classic 8′ brown L.L. Bean Boots. I also just purchased a new pair of club master sunglasses from J.Crew that matched the ensemble quite well. I love the look of these sunnies and I especially love the price. They look almost identical to the RayBan Clubmaster sunglasses but are a fraction of the cost. You can find these glasses at J.Crew Factory for just $26.95.

Dog Oxfords & Old Fashioned Cameras

A few days ago, I spent the afternoon with another KJP Campus Foxhawk rep at a nearby mansion in Richmond. We took advantage of the perfect weather and shot some outfits. I wanted to keep things casual because I knew it would be cold and we would be walking around the grounds all afternoon.
I started my outfit with my Old Navy jeans, camp socks, and Bean Boots. For tops, I layered my dog oxford with my J.Crew fisherman sweater and threw on my J.Crew navy vest for an extra layer of warmth. I have found that over the fall season, my three most worn items in my closet are my Bean Boots, fisherman sweater, and navy vest. They’re all so cozy but so affordable and durable. The best part about this outfit though is the adorable dog oxford. When I posted it on Instagram so many of y’all were excited to shop for this top! I actually found it in the Target men’s section of all places for $17.00! I linked it below, along with everything else in the post, down below!

Thanksgiving Outfit

I hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving! I know I sure did! It was so nice to catch up with family members after being away at school and it was especially nice to eat a home cooked meal!

I posted a new profile picture on my Instagram a few days ago and y’all went crazy over the outfit I was wearing. Little did y’all know that I was actually wearing my Thanksgiving outfit in that picture! I love the way a button up looks underneath a jumper, so I searched high and low for a fun Thanksgiving-y jumper. I found the cutest suede jumper from Old Navy of all places for only $14! I layered it with a blue oxford Polo button up and styled it with my cheetah print loafers. For accessories, I stuck with what I know a wore my KJP Simple Pearlfection necklace and two KJP bracelets. The dress from Old Navy is sold out but I linked suede dresses of all different colors and price ranges below!

Red-y for November

OMG! It’s November already?! That’s crazy! October to me flew by and now were technically less than two months away until Christmas! It’s really cold here in Harrisonburg so I’ve had to pull out a few more layers than expected! My sister found this adorable Gap trench coat from Goodwill for $7.00 and knew I would love it. Seriously people, stop a Goodwill every now and then, you can find some amazing (and cheap) items from there. Make sure to shop the post below!

Fisherman in Fall

I have been hunting everywhere for a great fisherman sweater to wear this fall and I finally found one at J.Crew Factory for only $53!! I love this classic fall look with the deep camel color in the pants to the texture in the sweater. As always, I added my favorite Kiel James Patrick accessories to polish off the look! Enjoy!

Fall Layers

Long time no post, I apologize for a lack of posts this past week but it’s was midterm week here and I’ve been living in the library and going to bed at 2am. To make up for the lack of posts, I filmed a Dorm Tour on my Youtube channel! You can check it out here, enjoy!

Yesterday, it was freezing here at JMU. After a week long of extremely hot weather (80 degrees, ugh) the cold finally came back and I hope it’s officially here to stay. I took advantage of the weather and spend the beautiful day yesterday outside with my friend, Gillian.

For my outfit I first layered a basic hard denim dress with a striped turtleneck for Target underneath. For a little extra warmth, I pulled my J.Crew jeweled sweater, which matched the black in the turtleneck extremely well. Finally for shoes, because it poured here the night before, I styled the outfit with my Hunter rainboots.
