Hey guys! I am so excited to officially introduce Stylin' Iowan! For my first post, I thought I would start with a classic Friday night outfit! I am really feeling houndstooth right now! It's a great print for the winter months, and I think it's the perfect alternative to the ever-popular chevron that is trending right now. I've been spotting a lot of houndstooth prints in other colors besides black too, so I'm hoping to find something bright for the spring months coming up! 

When wearing a lot of black, I try to find some way to add a pop of color, and usually my outlet for color is in the form of accessories. This multi-blue gemstone and crystal necklace from Ann Taylor Loft added just the touch of color I needed on this cold night, without looking too blingy or cheap. And believe it or not, it was only $12!!!! Any item of clothing always looks and feels more stylish when it's a bargain! :)

Who's ready for another week of classes? I have two of my best friends' 21st birthdays this week, so I will definitely have more outfits to share! Until then... 

Shirt: Francesca's 
Jeans: TJMaxx
Necklace: LOFT (online it says it's $49.88, so head to your local LOFT to find the clearance price)

PS: Sorry for the low-quality pictures! I'm new at this, but the quality of the pictures will get much better!
