necklace - c/o Black Crystals
hat - Target
everything else -c/o Macy's

I'm so pumped about this outfit for a multitude of reasons. First of all, how awesome does that cardigan look with the eye graffiti?! I'm maybe a little too excited about that first photo. As soon as I spotted this cardigan I knew it had to be mine. It's not even my size, it's a xs when I'm typically a medium, but it fits perfectly! Some things are just meant to be. When I started considering where to shoot I remembered that eye on the wall and had to make it happen!

Secondly, I convinced Jeff to join me for outfit photos! He really didn't take much convincing at all. We really need to work on taking pictures together that aren't the cheesiest ever though. I actually text him after I got done looking through the photos to remark how annoyed I am with them. I look at him the way I look at baby animals, pizza, and everything else I love so very much. I am the human version of this emoji around him.

Perhaps most exciting of all, I've teamed up with Macy's for this post! I've never really been huge on shopping at department stores because I've always had a hard time finding things that I really like but I guess I haven't been in Macy's in a while! I'm really excited about this whole outfit. I was just about to type "especially..." and then name one of the items but I seriously love every piece. I spent SO much time in the store picking out this outfit. Probably actually the longest I've ever spent in any store, seriously. I went through the entire women's department at least three times, finding new things to try on each time. I couldn't believe how much of their stuff was 100% my style!

Below are some of my favorites Inspired by Macy's winter fashion guide. I've been wanting to add more colorful pants to my wardrobe so I was pumped to find the maroon pants. In store I only saw blue, black, and maroon, but online I noticed they have whole range of awesome colors. That orange is awfully tempting!

  2. I know exactly what you mean, I never thought Macy's was my thing either but their clothes are surprisingly quite cute, and typically on a decent sale. And free people is sold there as well!

    1. DUDE, yes! Macy's sales are off the hook. I nabbed three sweaters, two shirts, and a pair of pants for just around $100 because everything was on sale!

    1. Saw your picture on instagram this morning, I was wondering what pair you got! :)

  15. Awww, love the outfit photo: couples edition.

    Lately I've been digging the style of Palladium boots, & I've been thinking about getting a pair for my primary winter shoes (Chuck Taylors & snow is a bad combination.) In your experience, how do Palladium boots stack up in regards to winter wear, i.e. warmth & water resistance?

    1. Depends on which pair your looking at! The ones I have on in these photos aren't all that great for winter but they do have a few pairs that are meant for cold weather and are water proof. I own these;

      They're super warm and keep my feet dry! :)

  16. Yes, I really like the ones you've got on in this post & I wish they were appropriate for all weather. I shouldn't be surprised, seeing as they must make a water proof version for a reason. Thanks for your response!
