Lookbook: Tucked

Happy Thanksgiving!  We got hit with a snowstorm the day that J and I were supposed to meet my family in Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with them.  We had already dropped our pups off at the dogsitter (who lives about 30 minutes away) and were set to go the next morning but the weather had other ideas for us!  BOO!  I rescheduled our flights 3 times to try to accommodate for the weather *hoping* that it would warm up.  Unfortunately for us, it just wasn't working out so not only could we not go on our trip, the doggies were still at the dogsitter since there was no way we could get there to pick them back up!  I mean, as long as J and I are together, we're happy but it was annoying that we were paying the dog sitter to watch our dogs while we were at home plus not getting to spend time with my family, especially my sister and her husband who I rarely see.  But we have rescheduled our tickets and have a good chance of flying out as the weather is finally getting above freezing!  Yay! So I'm okay with it as J and I had a chance to walk to Whole Foods to whip together our own little Thanksgiving dinner and it was delish.  I hope you guys had a less eventful thanksgiving and enjoyed spending time with your friends and families!

Anyway! Onto the lookbook for today! Remember when I told you that I was obsessed with baggy tops?  This is one of the tops I bought during that phase.  Untucked, this shirt is HUGE but tucked into a slim bandage style skirt, it's perfect!  And no way jose did I wear this last week, I was bundled up in layers and fur snoods as it was frighteningly cold! This outfit is from early October.  I'm still trying to catch up on my lookbooks!

What I'm Wearing
Top: ASOS
Skirt: BCBG
Tights: DKNY
Shoes: Miu Miu
Necklace: J. Crew

Shop the Lookbook
Mine is sold out but look at how long and baggy it really is!
Numph Oversize Printed Tunic
I get a lot of questions about ASOS sizing and it is really confusing and a hit and miss with their stuff.  The above tunic I bought in a 2 but for most of my tops that I buy from them that are a bit more structured I size up to a 4 just in case because I've gotten some super tiny stuff from them before and it's much easier to alter something too big than something too small.
BCBGMAXAZRIA Solid Power Skirt
Every woman needs a slim skirt like this, you can pair it with so many tops and it always looks great.  I prefer a baggy top or wearing it underneath a too short dress to balance it out.  I like that this one is called the "Power Skirt" :)

I'll take this cute metallic bandage skirt too (and for $13.80 you can buy a top too!)  Out of my price range but I just love this tulip bandage skirt.  So pretty!

DKNY: Basic Tights
My favorite tights ever.  I buy these in bulk.  The terrible thing is that they run super easily but a few times a year DKNY puts their tights on 25% off sale so I stock up then.



Vince Camuto Women's Momas
The look for less version of my shoes.  This gray version is now on sale for $95!
These blush colored Steve Madden pumps are also a great alternative and check out these ones with the cutouts.  Cute!

J.Crew Crystal broochette necklace
My necklace is sold out but isn't this one pretty?
Or I'm loving this one (on sale for $29.99!) or this one from Banana Republic.

Speaking of pretties, I want to thank freshpair.com for sending me these gorgeous bra and panty sets from Elle Macpherson Intimates.  I'm always looking for new brands and stores to shop for my intimates at as I stopped shopping at Victoria's Secret in college and unfortunately there's just not many other options out there.  I'm happy to have found a few online stores that I can order from and freshpair is definitely on that list!  I haven't tried out the Elle Macpherson Intimates line before and I'm glad that they introduced me to them.  I'm loving the delicate, girly designs!  Nothing makes you feel better than having a set of pretty undergarments on right? :)  And don't forget before you place your order to use your ebates for 6% cashback on your order!

  12. it's too bad you weren't able to make your flight to see your family, but at least you were able to reschedule the trip and you and your hubby are together for the holiday.

    i love the oversized top on you -- especially the off-the-shoulder look. and that bandage "power skirt" looks amazing on you!

  13. the top looks a lot better on you than on the model =D! Probably the fact you wore it off shoulder too.
    I too love tucking in every top. My annoying husband would then smirk and say I look like this comedian who always funnily tuck his shirt and wear his pants way way to high. Grr....

  18. Love the shirt tucked into the skirt....so cute!

    I was wondering why you like those DKNY tights if they run so easily? Are they just really comfortable?

    Thanks :)
