Looking at these photos seriously made me giggled to myself. Keeping things as real as possible here, I am no model and seeing myself draped and slung my jacket over my shoulders oh-so-nonchalantly is pretty amusing. I mean, how on earth are people walking around like this? I get it, the pits needs some breathing room, but I could hardly keep the thing on my back standing still let along strutting at full speed down the street. Nevertheless I may just have been quite the inexperience jacket-draper and my desire to snatched the living sleeves off someone who frequent the “drape” has kinda sorta diminished; because now I realized how this look has elevated my chic status by 10.

Totally kidding aside, this crop jacket and pencil skirt made in a stretch medium weight knit fabric is my favorite from my New Year ’14 collection. The rich deep pink/red hue and clean soft knit is perfect for day or night and I especially love that this can be worn in the office with simple pumps, on a casual date with a tee, or a sexy top for a night on the town with the girls. There are so many outfits that can be styled with this set together or separately, and I can’t wait to show you the photos…well actually I can because none of those photos has been taken yet.  :)

Sometimes one little piece of accessory can transform an outfit. That’s why scarves are my absolute favorite piece of accessory whenever the temperature drops and I want to add a little something special to my outfit. I’m a collector of scarves in all sorts of colors and prints, but I always go back to my classic oh-so-soft cashmere scarf that my boss got for me a couple of years ago. It’s a classic and still looks like new…
