These pictures were actually taken on Friday when the temperatures hadn't dropped into the 40s yet, and I was enjoying some of the fall foliage around my house after work.  I love mixing "tougher" pieces like this leather jacket with soft feminine chiffon tops and chunky statement necklaces.  And of course, what better way to tie everything together than with a hot pink belt, right?

This weekend was an absolute whirlwind!  One of the highlights was definitely my company's annual Holiday Party, filled with great food and incredible entertainment {it's always nice to see your bosses get crazy on the dance floor!}.  And to make sure that it would be a night to remember, we all enjoyed a bit of photobooth silliness on our way out the door.

  7. Your pictures with Adrian are adorable!!  I really like the bootcut jeans on you - they make your legs look uber-long.  

    How do you like your MAC?  I just ordered one on Cyber Monday and am super excited for its arrival bc I'm so addicted to anything that can be carried cross-body.

  9. I love my Mac clutch!! It's on the smaller side of my purses so it can't hold a whole lot, but I love how easy it is to wear! The strap is a little long by default, do I had to loop it back on itself to make it hit at my hip.

  17. I just found your blog and look forward to seeing what you put together. I love all the colors! Another blog I read said: shoes have to match the bag, belt matches the shoes, and I was a bit worried. But investigating the blog community today I've come to the general understanding that if it feels good and makes people happy: wear it ;) This look is just fun and pretty. :)

  23. So cute, our company parties are boring - we have a luncheon during the day and usually at a venue we can just walk to :P  It's ok though, I'd be totally weirded out seeing some of my co-workers drunk and dancing LOL!
