I saw this sweater in J.Crew recently and I couldn’t resist! It’s such a beautiful pop of red, which pairs perfectly with all of the blue jeans I’ve been wearing recently (not to mention Valentines Day). I love that depending on what accessories you pair it with it can look casual or vintage glam. Plus, it has a nice weight to it which means that if I’m not outside for too long I can forego a coat when I wear it!

I chose to make this long sweater blazer feel more vintage glam, which has been my ascetic of choice lately. I’ve been trying to keep in mind my favorite ascetics and colors to wear when I go shopping so that my closet looks cohesive and it’s easy to mix and match all of my items. Red and vintage glam are at the top of both lists. (That, and things that are warm and cozy :) Also, the sweater is very roomy. If you don’t want it to hang quite so loosely, absolutely go down a size.

To play up the vintage charm I paired the sweater with my favorite Chanel look a like pumps, which now come in pink too! The heel is the perfect height and compared to how much Chanel shoes cost they are a bargain. They come in pink now too. They go with pretty much everything, and I love the cutouts on the side. I think they make the classic silhouette feel modern.

I also wore this new top knot headband. I’ve been seeing them on Instagram a lot lately, and was excited to find a black one for a good price at Anthropologie. I love the way the headband has such an Old Hollywood glamorous feel, like something Grace Kelly would wear, and yet is very on-trend right now. Those are my favorite kind of accessories!

Here are some other hair accessories I’ve been admiring lately:

What are your favorite accessories? Do you like headbands too? I used to wear so many and then stopped for a while; I’m so excited to see the trend come back!

Gal Meets Glam Millie Dress

Gal Meets Glam Millie Dress

My new Gal Meets Glam Millie dress arrived in the mail on Friday. It's so beautiful, and so well made. When my husband and I got in the car on Sunday and drove up the coast to wander around Palm Beach, I knew it was the perfect outfit. It's my first maxi length dress, and I can't believe I waited this long to own one! The length is so flattering and swishes so nicely.

The Gal meets Glam Millie dress is a faux wrap dress, which is one of my favorite silhouettes. I love the bow on the side and the v-neckline, it's very flattering. I would consider sizing up, since the sleeves are a bit tight. As to the length, the dress hit the top of my foot and I'm 5'7. The fabric is heavy which makes it hang nicely. Finally, it is very easy to steam the wrinkles out, and it didn't wrinkle from our car ride at all.

Millie Dress / Jack Rogers / Grace Box Mark Cross Bag

I wore it with my beige Jack Rogers sandals and my new Grace Box bag. I love that the beige and white color palette of the Millie dress makes it easy to pair with colorful accessories!

I also decided to do a smokier eye than usual. I used this eyeliner, it didn't smudge at all and the humidity was over 100 (!!!) Finally, I recently cut my hair for summer, and used my Drybar curling wand for some beach waves. They lasted all day, even in the extreme humidity.
