|Sweater: Express – Similar here and here, Jeggings: Jessica Simpson, Boots: Vince Camuto – Dupes here (for $50!), Bag: Tory Burch, Sunglasses: Quay Harper|
I bought this sweater last year, but Express is having a BOGO 50% off sale right now and they have TONS of cute sweaters, so I wanted to do a blog post over it. There are turtlenecks, lace ups, fuzzy sweaters and they’re must haves for this fall/winter. Turtlenecks are some of my favorites because I love the look of a turtleneck with a messy ponytail. Tip: To get a really messy ponytail with lots of volume, tease the crown (alot) then bring it down a notch and pin with some bobby pins. Then, tie your hair up in a ponytail and remove the bobby pins, or you can keep them there and just rough up your hair a little to hide them. Anyway, I’m linking some of my favorite sweaters in the widget below!
In other news: My blog officially turned 1 year old today! It’s been such a fun year finding my way as a “fashion blogger.” I’m so thankful for the opportunities that I have been starting to receive and I can’t wait to see what year 2 brings. One of those opportunities is that I have been chosen to be this season’s fashion blogger for the boutique “Grace and Lace” in Austin, Tx, and they actually got their start on Shark Tank. I will be doing blog posts throughout the season wearing some of their clothes which is really cute! Anyway, I’m really grateful for all of you that take the time to check out my blog posts, like my pictures, and just support whatever I’m doing from my blog to my stationery to my cookies. There’s some days where I feel like everyone could care less about what I post or what I wear, but then someone leaves me a sweet comment or I see someone around town and they tell me how much they love my blog and it gives me motivation, so I just wanted to say thank you for all of the love and support this first year! I’m also especially thankful for my aunt Julie who is my “official” photographer and takes pictures anytime I need them and puts in just as much time as I do into my blog. Love having people that lift you up in life!
So, Happy birthday Steeltoes & Stilettos!
Make today great friends! 😀
