Subtle Shimmer...

Sweater: Vanity c/o, similar here and here | Pants: Calvin Klein, similar here | Booties: old, similar here and here | Purse: Marc Jacobs, similar here | Earrings: Chloe + Isabel c/o | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelets: Mindy Mae's Market, kate spade | Lipstick: Estee Lauder - Nude 

I love starting out the week on a fun note, and I'm excited to show you all another cozy (and super affordable!) sweater from Vanity! First off, I really love the cowl-neck. The other day I pulled the collar off my shoulders and it looked like a totally different sweater, so obviously it's super versatile to style. I also love that there's a subtle shimmer in the material. The shimmer part gives off like a maroon and evergreen color, but it's really only noticeable in the sun, so it gives off a totally different look when you get really close. The material is just so soft and doesn't make you feel itchy like a lot of shimmery sweaters! I've washed it already a couple times (clearly this sweater has been on repeat), and its' kept its' shape for the most part. I just hang-dry it to keep it from stretching/snagging. Overall, a great sweater for women of any age! 

OK from the look of these pictures, I'm in desperate need of a haircut. I no longer have layers...not ok! Anyone in NW Iowa have a hair salon that they love? I'm pretty picky when it comes to hair dressers, but at this point my dead ends are winning this battle. HELP! 

PS: be sure to check out my new side widget on the left! I'll be updating it regularly with pieces that I'm currently craving. Right now, that red J.Crew dress is seriously amazing! I think my sister Emily is buying it for Christmas so I might have to steal it from her for a day... hi Em if you're reading this! :)
