Sweater Weather

Hello! Although it may still be a little early for sweater weather, I couldn't resist debuting this burgundy sweater. I purchased this lightweight knit sweater at an Urban Outfitters sale for less than $20 this past summer. The oversized shape, texture combination and rich color instantly captured my attention. 

This is the perfect sweater to throw on over leggings or over a printed dress on a chilly day. While it wasn't exactly chilly, I still decided to slip this sweater on over top of a black and white polka dot dress. 

I decided to keep my accessories to a minimum and simply grabbed a golden necklace and little golden bag. This bag is the perfect size for holding my keys and ID and I find myself reaching for it again and again this semester. I also purchased this bag at the Urban Outfitters sale for less than $20. Talk about a good sale! 

Black Doc Martens completed the look. 

Big thanks to my roommate, Bhumi, for taking this photo for me!

Back in Action

Hello! It feels so good to be back in action in Philadelphia. The excitement of seeing everyone for the first time in months, breaking out my fall wardrobe and beginning new classes is overwhelming. These past few days have been eventful and exhausting but I am definitely glad to be back at Philadelphia University. Now let's just see if I'll be able to make it through my statistics and microeconomics courses...

Chris snapped this photo of my previous roommate, Taisha, and I outside of our business models class on Tuesday. I broke out this plaid shirtdress for the second day of classes. I recently purchased this dress for about $30 at H&M and am already falling in love with it. I mean honestly, how could I resist the dark colors and stylish print of the dress? I also love how the sleeves can be worn rolled up or down. Also, come on do you see the front pocket on this dress? So convenient for holding my lipstick or keys and whatnot. 

I played up the navy in the dress with simple navy wedges. I accessorized with a gray color-blocked tote (the ideal size for holding my books and laptop), a pile of rings and black cat-eye sunglasses.

On me:
Plaid shirt dress: H&M
Navy wedges: Thrifted
Color blocked tote: Unknown
Rings: Assorted (Urban Outfitters, Vintage, Charlotte Russe)
Cat-eye sunglasses: c/o Giant Vintage

Side note: Totally drooling over Taisha's outfit. And it's not fair how perfect her hair is oh my gosh. Be sure to follow her on instagram @tmoniquee_ for snapshots of her daily looks.
