OOTD: Oxblood Pants + Winner of the Teeology Giveaway

The weather is finally beginning to get slightly cooler here in Miami! This means that we can get more outfit shots outside and not have to rush through the pictures because I'm melting away!
This button-down shirt from Express is one of my favorites.  It's structured and it does not wrinkle in the least. Do not underestimate the versatility of plain white button-downs; they have endless styling possibilities, just like plain white t-shirts.  For this look, I buttoned the shirt up to the collar so that I could wear my vintage Dior necklace over the collar  You may remember my awesome aunt who developed a skin allergy and gifted me with all of these pieces.

The leggings are from Target by Mossimo (previously seen in this post).   They are soft and have a thick black elastic waistband.  They do run big, and they do stretch out.  Big leggings are not cute.  They sag and droop where they're not supposed to and they add girth. Grrr...

I took a risk by cinching the waist with a leather sash belt from a faux fur vest I have by Aqua (Bloomingdales' brand).  I like the look, I know it's austere and severe, but I had fun with it.  Also, cinching the shirt at the waist created sort of a faux peplum look! I am in love with these earrings that I bought last year, and I decided they don't get enough wear, so here you go!

Neon Friendship Bracelet from The Limited; Cocktail ring from Bauble Bar; Sunglasses, Chanel.

I recently received this adorable peter pan collar cropped jacket from Conversation Pieces.  They've got really cute clothes at affordable prices.  I like their basics because they're soft and comfy.

Hope you're enjoying your weekend! <3

Those pants are such a great color! The same thing happens to me when I buy jeans... after a few hours they stretch out, but I never want to buy a smaller size because I'm always afraid they won't stretch out! Aaaaah, dilemmas. Hopefully they'll shrink for you.

Have a wonderful CHristmas!
