Today I'm just going to keep it simple & to the point. I've been enjoying mixing some of my new Christmas items with trusty old pieces lately. It makes a perfect mix using a new piece to spice up an old one.
Apparently I'm really loving plaid scarves, simple easy dresses, & cognac boots...
Left: Dress - Old Navy (old) // Scarf - Purple Peridot // Boots - Vince Camuto via DSW (in-store) // Belt - JCPenney (old)
Right: Dress - Old Navy (old) // Scarf - Target // Boots - Vince Camuto via DSW (in-store) // Tights - Target // Cuff - Nickel & Suede // Necklace - Express // Bag - Charming Charlie (old)
Both of these dresses are Old Navy purchases from 2-4 years ago. I've said it before, & I'll say it again - Old Navy has some of the best dresses that you can buy off the rack...simple, easy to wear, & can be a great staple for a few years. I saw a couple of great dresses there the other day for just $20...can't beat that price. This one is very similar to the striped one from above, & this one is similar to the cobalt blue dress above. I've also listed a few others I'm swooning over in the Shop the Post section below - some are as little as $12-$17!! Eek!
As you can see, it was a chilly day when I wore this outfit. Choosing to belt the blanket scarf was an excellent way of adding warmth & coziness! I'm also a huge fan of pattern mixing, so the stripes, plaid & leopard all make for an outfit full of interest.
No joke, I've had this cobalt dress for at least 4 years & I loved being able to wear it with the plaid scarf & 50 shades of Cognac (lol). The bright cobalt brings some brightness to chilly winter days. The jacket I wore with this is the (Minus The) Leather Quilted Sleeve Jacket from Express - a Christmas gift from my mom. I'm excited to continue to pair this great jacket with many things in the future!
Again, don't forget to check out some of the great dresses you can get your hands on from Old Navy below. I really can't justify adding any more to my collection at the moment, so I'll live vicariously through you guys! ;-)
