Things I Wore (and Did) in December 2017

Last December, I complained about not taking many outfit photos throughout the month, and it seems some things don’t change. Whoops!

Here are a few things I wore throughout this brutally cold month (and I do mean just a few).


I wore this 90s-inspired look to see my favorite boy band, Backstreet Boys, perform at Mohegan Sun casino.

Outfit details

  • Shirt: Forever 21
  • Skirt: Forever 21
  • Boots: Rainbow (I think?)
  • Tights:


I had been coveting a crushed velvet dress for months, so I finally bit the bullet and got myself one for my office holiday party. (I definitely also splurged on a crushed velvet pencil skirt but I haven’t worn it yet.) No regrets!

Outfit details

  • Dress: Forever 21
  • Cardigan: Forever 21
  • Boots: Rainbow (I think?)
  • Tights:


After a successful day of shopping with Grandma (one of my favorite things to do), I ended up with these AMAZING slippers and needed to document them. Alas, this outfit was just for around the house. 😉

Outfit details

  • Fleece: Old Navy
  • Leggings: Kohl’s
  • Slippers: Forever 21


Not my favorite outfit or even the most flattering, but so ridiculously comfortable.

5 Affordable Watches I’m Loving Right Now

Watches are back, and in a big way. I used to opt not to wear a watch, but I’ve been loving the boyfriend-inspired watches that have been coming out lately and I want to get in on the trend. Also, sometimes when I’m not wearing a watch, I’m reminded of the moment on “The Hills” when Kelly Cutrone scolds Lauren Conrad for not wearing a watch during her internship. It was kind of a defining moment for me (as so many of “The Hills” episodes are, right?).

I also love the layered look that’s popping up, which combines watches and bracelet. You can see my first attempt at it above. I thought the watched paired well with my Alex and Ani bracelets!

So, these are these 5 watches I’m coveting.

watch1This watch is at the top of my list. I love that it’s silver (my favorite metallic hue) and it’s menswear-inspired, which I think is a great look.

watch2Since all of my jewelry is silver, I’ve been hesitant to introduce rose gold into the mix, even though I love it. I think this watch would provide a nice middle ground. (Also, please reassure me it’s totally fine to mix silver and shades of gold, please.)

Large Face Slim Strap Watch, ASOS, $37.37


The thin band on this watch is to-die-for! I also love the roman numerals on the face.

Chevron Chic Watch, Charming Charlie, $15

How cute is this chevron watch? I also like that it comes in a neutral color, which will go with anything.

Style&co. Women’s Silver-Tone Bracelet Watch, Kohl’s, $29.98


This watch combines menswear with a little sparkle. I love it!

Which watches are you into these days?
