Ruffled Feathers

Happy Monday, ya’ll! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty low-key, and I loved it! On Friday I grabbed drinks with friends after work, and then on Saturday attended the cutest holiday party at DL Loft’s in Chicago! It was seriously the most adorable set up. The rest of the weekend, however, was spent in bed and I’m not mad about it! I don’t know about you, but I don’t foresee being my usual active self this winter because all I want to do is stay home!

Moving on, though. Today I wanted to talk about one of my favorite fall/winter trends this season, and it’s the ruffled sleeve sweater!

I picked up this ruffled sleeve sweater over the Labor Day weekend at TJ Maxx and thought it was the cutest thing! Little did I know that I would be seeing them everywhere, and I’m so glad there’s so many options available. Winter arrived early in Chicago this year (even though it’s technically still fall), so I’ve been trying to stock up on all of the cozy sweaters, and the ruffles add the cutest little touch! I’m also loving this gorgeous fuchsia color!

Something else I need to mention are these AMAZING Calvin Klein mules. I received them for my birthday back in May, and can’t believe this is the first time I’m featuring them on the blog. I’d probably say that I wore these things on average 3 times per week over the past month, and absolutely love them. They’re super stylish and literally go with every single outfit possible, but the even better news is that you guys can purchase them for less than $60 here! I honestly can’t recommend them enough and have completely spurred my new obsession for mules.
