This was post-turkey coma weekend outfit. Slouchy pants with an elastic waistband, and you really can’t go wrong. I’ve had this vest for a couple of months, and it has been waiting for the perfect moment to be worn. The contrast of slouchy with the structured vest works so well for me, and I’m thinking these pants might become a weekend staple.

This, for me, is simplicity at its best. Classic black and white with a mix of texture (lace and snakeskin)? You just can’t go wrong.
My parents stopped by my apartment yesterday, and it was such a treat for me to be able to show them around Omaha. We, of course, took the obligatory tour of downtown and the quaint shops down at the Old Market, as well as stopped by a few of my favorite parts of the city — including my go-to place for cupcakes.

One of the things I want to work on in 2013 is layering. My problem is that with too many layers, I get too warm; for me, the key to layering is doing so with light layers. For this look, it’s all cotton except for my merino wool cardigan. It ended up being the perfect mix — all with a lot of help and inspiration from this pin.

I went through an argyle phase my freshman year of college and, essentially, argyled myself out. I was never quite sure how to style such a classic, preppy print. I think the key to styling argyle in a modern way is to pick up a print in unexpected colors, like this yellowish green, and pair it with a contrasting color (like these eggplant cords) and a contrasting print (like these snakeskin flats).
I purposefully put these pictures in the order above so you wouldn’t think I was pulling a LiLo and going sans pants (see the shot-from-behind picture). And if that intro to today’s post doesn’t make you quit reading, I don’t know what will. But thanks, if you are still reading. Here’s the breakdown:

I’ve never been much of a lime green gal, but after spotting the color on so many other bloggers this season and finding this blouse at a garage sale for a dollar, I decided to give it a whirl. Rather than going the pastel route, I accented its vividness with navy blue and hints of black. Oh, and some animal print!
