When I'm stuck getting dressed in the morning, I tend to take cues from my favorite color combos. This time I let this season's favorite scarf take the lead and found a red and black ensemble to wear with it. I grabbed my always popular black leather pants and a basic black tee and donned them under the red blazer that has been sitting in my closet unworn for too long. Of course, since it's a red and black theme, I had to wear my loubs (right?!) and grabbed my go-to black bag. Lastly, I capped of the look with a bit of red lip gloss.

A good sweater dress can be hard to find. They're too short, too tight, or too bulky. This year, however, I scored in the sweater dress department. I managed to scoop up a warm and cozy option that met all my needs.
The standard sweater dress option is tights and boots because, well, it's cold outside and you gotta stay warm even if you're wearing a dress. I chose to wear non-traditional ombre tights and rather than black boots, I reached for my grey pair. Under my top layer of my favorite faux leather jacket, I slipped on a gold body chain as a way to move this look even further away from the typical sweater dress uniform.
I must say, it really fit the bill of easy and comfortable without being boring.

I've long been obsessed with houndstooth so I welcomed the print's popularity this season with open arms. I added this awesome houndstooth coat to my cold weather wardrobe and couldn't wait to start wearing it. For this ensemble, I chose to mix it up by pairing it with a plaid scarf. Because the two prints are so very bold, I kept the rest of the outfit simple and all black. I'm obsessed with this warm yet fashion-forward look!
