Dressed Up Sweatpants

David Michael blazer (similar - on sale!)
Zara t-shirt (similar here and here)
Helmut Lang x Uniqlo sweatpants (similar)
Christian Louboutin "Iriza" 100mm pumps
Bauble Bar collar necklace
Chanel wallet on chain

Since I got these Helmut Lang x Uniqlo sweatpants, I thought I'd try dressing them up, since I already have other frumpy sweats that I change into immediately upon getting home from work. Last time, I styled them in the chillest way possible since I was spending a weekend in the woods (post here). However, the foldover detail and cuffed ankles make these look more like trousers than sweats. So this time, I dressed them up with a slouchy blazer, killer pumps, and gold accessories.

Layers and White Jeans

Aritzia oxford stripe shirt (similar)
J.Crew white jeans (25% off - code: SHOPNOW)
Alaïa suede booties (similar)
Céline bicolor "Phantom Cabas" tote
Daniel Wellington "Sheffield Lady" watch (c/o)

The last watch I owned was a turquoise G-Shock when I was in middle school. Since my iPhone is practically attached at my hip, I haven't needed another time source. Though I've always been inclined towards big-faced, masculine watches, I couldn't handle (no pun intended) the bulkiness on my wrist. That's why I'm loving the low-profile, minimal look of the Sheffield Lady watch in rose gold by Daniel Wellington. There's something about a classy wristwatch that makes an outfit more chic.

Jewelry + Lipstick

I don't own a lot of jewelry, because I get bored of baubles easily and don't get enough wears to justify costs. That's why the concept behind Rocksbox is genius. For $20/month, a stylist picks out three pieces of designer jewelry (worth up to $200) for you. You can keep whatever you love for however long you want, or you could ship them back and receive new pieces to play with.

For date nights, I styled a couple pieces I received from this month's Rocksbox with my favorite lipsticks.

Urban Gem "Sunrise" stud earrings + NARS "Jungle Red" lipstick
When wearing bejeweled studs, I like to pull the hair back and keep the neckline simple to bring attention to the earrings. I added a matte red lipstick for a classic, glam evening look.

Loren Hope "Aurora" necklace + NARS "Schiap" lipstick
Hot pink is my favorite color, and I love that stone on the necklace! I wanted to match it with another color pop of fuchsia lips. With two bright tones, I kept the rest of the outfit simple with a LBD.

Navy Mohair Long Cardigan

H&M mohair cardigan (similar/splurge)
Zara stripe shirt (similar - on sale!)
Rebecca Minkoff "Darcy" bag
Wings + Horns scarf (20% off - code: HOLIDAY)

Long cardigans have been my go-to. I called it a few months ago when I bought my first one in camel in this post. When something works, get it in every color, right? So I also have the gray version of the cardigan I'm wearing in this post. I throw these on over everything for an extra warm, fuzzy layer.

Plaid and Checks

Isabel Marant tweed coat
Funktional cable knit sweater (similar)
Madewell "Perrie" boots
Chanel wallet on chain
ASOS scarf (similar here and here)

Currently in Boston for the long weekend, and I'm loving this city so far! I've been loading up on east coast seafood like Chatham oysters, Littleneck clams, and lobster rolls. The brownstone architecture is so charming, especially on Newbury Street for boutique shopping. The chilly weather in Boston is perfect for fall layering, so I brought this versatile plaid and checks ASOS scarf and flipped it to the red plaid side for a color pop.
