I have two items in my closet I have been wearing to death this winter- a faux fur vest (the black and the brown one I have too) and my Kate Spade Lollipop heels.  Seems that no matter what else I have on, I can pop on these two things and feel instantly dressier and more stylish. I know I have mentioned these heels like 1,000 times but here’s the thing- they are the most comfortable high, high heels I’ve ever worn. I spent a whole day on my feet in them traipsing around NYC the other day, I swear!

I absolutely HATE taking selfies, but here you go. One outfit I wore recently sporting the staples for drinks out with my pal Matt. Please ignore the suitcase on the bed. And yes, I wore camo to a fancy pants restaurant, something I never thought I’d do. But paired with a simple fitted turtleneck and those shoes it worked somehow.

Pants: Zara (they run SO SMALL in the legs- similar pair with more stretch, because these are so tight my feet go numb), Turtleneck: J. Crew, iPhone case: J. Crew, Watch: Michael Kors

I was 100% inspired by the boys from Duck Dynasty, my new addiction. For reals. I would like to hang out with these guys (but not shoot anything).

Just the other night I paired the same staples with my major investment leather leggings, a flannel shirt and piles of gold necklaces. And did not think to make the bed nor clean the room before I took this, clearly. Oliver looks MIGHTY concerned y’all with think I’m a slob. Well… I am. My Mom is no doubt slapping her forehead and saying “Oh Erin…”

Pants: Helmut Lang (really stupid pricey but worth EVERY PENNY- remember from HERE?), Shirt: Jcrew (sold out- similar here),  Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelet: Hermes, Necklaces: J.Crew (sold out- similar here and here) Ann Taylor (old, similar here)

Clearly also inspired by another woodsy fella named Paul Bunyan. What is with me these days? Do I have some deep seeded desire to frolick in the woods?

The only thing this picture says to me is that I have GOT to find time to wax my eyebrows. But also that I love my new Margaret Elizabeth earrings a whole lot.

And her insanely yummy stacking bangles!!!!

Or this SICK pendant. It’s the most amazeballs thing.

Here is a cute Christmas morning (or any winter morning) look that can take you from the sofa to a quick grocery store errand (with a change of shoes of course). Adding a bit of jewelry makes it all the more fun.
