Hello! It continues to get colder here in Philadelphia. In fact, it even snowed yesterday morning. I think that definitely means that it's time to break out the layers and winter apparel. For once, I actually pulled out a pair of pants from my wardrobe. Usually, I tend to shy away from jeans and pants but these metallic pants are an exception. Last August, I purchased them on sale for only $10 at H&M. Yes, only $10! How crazy is that? The metallic finish and high-rise waist instantly drew me to these pants. So luxe!
Today, I styled the pants with a chic leopard print button down. Of course, in this chilly weather I needed to wear more than just a button down so I grabbed a neutral-colored, vintage jacket to throw over it. I highlighted the darker colors in my leopard print top by slipping on my black Doc Martens (also known as the shoes that practically never leave my feet).
I accessorized with a color-blocked tote (the perfect bag to bring to class), stylish sunglasses, several bracelets and a watch. As you guys may have noticed, these sunglasses are one of the latest additions to my wardrobe. Giant Vintage recently sent me these sunglasses to showcase on my blog. These are the "Sweetie" sunglasses in black. They retail for $20 + shipping and can be found HERE. Giant Vintage never lets me down and I absolutely love these sunglasses. They are very classic with a slight twist and can be easily styled with numerous different looks.
The watch that I am wearing in these photos is also a recent addition to my wardrobe. I recently received it complimentary of ShopLately. This is the "The Brooke in Tortoise Gold" and it is sold by Breda Watches HERE. It retails for $31.50 + shipping. For quite a while, I have been looking for a classic, versatile watch that I can easily slip on with most outfits. This watch fits that description completely. The classic tortoise print and oversize shape have me drooling over this watch. I definitely see myself wearing this watch time and time again this fall/winter. My only complaint with Breda Watches was that the shipping took a while. I ordered the watch on October 25, 2013 and it only came yesterday. So it took a little less than 3 weeks to get to me.
