Zac Posen

Jenni Kayne Sweater


This is a look I wore out to sushi with some my boyfriend and some of our friends.  It is casual, yet dressed up and incorporates a preppy feel that I have been into lately.  I started with some high waisted wool plaid shorts.  On top I wore a button down shirt with a unique hemline.  A cropped cable knit sweater was layered over the button down and I left the collar of the shirt peeking out.  A blush colored sweater like this has been on my wish list for quite some time.  Opaque tights, cuban booties, and a girly looking black leather bow bag topped off the ensemble.  You can subscribe to my YouTube channel to see all my videos.

We headed over to the Cherry Creek mall to snap some photos on a rare shopping trip.  I am not that fond of the mall, especially around Christmas time.  He snapped a photo in front of the Louis Vuitton store, but soon a security guard told us we couldn't take photos in front of the store fronts in the mall. Okaaaaaaaay?  Then we headed over to Saks and I made a beeline for the 40% off shoe display and found these wonderful Gucci peep toe boots.  The leather fits like a glove around your feet.  My boyfriend bought them for me and they made up for the weird security guard.  Then we decided to have a sushi lunch at a nice restaurant inside the mall.  Afterward, I picked up my favorite lip conditioner at MAC.  The guy working there wouldn't let us take a photo in front of the display because he claimed people sell the photos online.  It was one strange photo taking day!  After that, we picked up some SmartWool socks at Nordstrom and split.  SmartWool socks from the men's section are the best socks I have ever had.  I love them. 

We ventured over to North Cherry Creek and checked out Crate & Barrel.  We love to cook and picked up some more accessories for our kitchen and then took some photos outside with a friendly dog.  I love how he is looking wherever I am looking in the photos.  So cute.  I then gazed into the Betsey Johnson store for a little while.  Betsey Johnson was my first love when it came to designer things.  I fell for all the cute dresses, but soon got burned out because it seemed like the dresses didn't really change all that much from season to season.  I still love a little Betsey in my life though. 

For this outfit I wanted to make the fringe skirt a little less dressy so instead of tucking in a top like I would normally do, I decided to just leave this turtleneck sweater untucked and let the fringe peek out underneath.  I wanted to toughen up the look so I added my Fendi studded ankle boots, which are outrageously comfortable thanks to the platform.  I carried this Zac Posen bag that has such a cute bow on it and a longer strap to use if desired.  I needed a long necklace to top off the look so I decided to finally wear my Chanel necklace from Barcelona.  To top it all off I pulled out my trusty Jessica Simpson peacoat.  I love the stitching on the back of it.  I switched to my Ugg Cardy boots near the end of our excursion to combat the snowy streets.  I rolled them down which I think makes them look cuter.  Essentially, I wore three shoes in one day.  A three in one post =) 

Happy New Year!
