#ONREPEAT: Three Pieces for Winter

3 Pieces for Winter | Style in Shape

At the end of October I picked up a couple of items for the upcoming colder weather that I fell in love with- I have worn them so much that they are all #ONREPEAT. Three pieces for winter that I can not stop wearing!

3 Pieces for Winter | Style in Shape

Jennifer Lopez Ribbed Dolman Sweater, org $54

The ruby color of this sweater is what attracted me to it. Admittedly I did not think I would like the cut of this sweater on me but order anyway because of the color. I was so happy when I put it on and saw how it fit. It’s lose but not too baggy or big and snugs in the right spots. The wider neck gives a slight off-the-shoulder feel. In red only size large is left but the orchid haze comes is available in most sizes and is a really pretty color for muted pastel for winter.

LC Lauren Conrad Chives OTK Boots, org $89.99

Already owning a gorgeous merlot hue of OTK boots and a pair of black stiletto ones from Vicki’s circa 2007- I wanted to pick up a pair of OTK boots to wear more on the regular. I wanted them to have a flat/to little heel and I did not want them to lace/tie/drawstring at the back. This style by Lauren Conrad that I found at Kohl’s fit the bill. When I bought them I had a $10 off $50 women’s clothings/shoes, plus a merchandise gift card and a 30% off coupon so I got them for $25! I am wearing these boots in my last post and I can not believe they are all sold out since last week! Target has some great affordable options under $45 like these and these.

Xhilaration-Women’s Longline Lace Bralette, org $12.99

I really wanted to give this bralette trend a try out since the spring but was hesitant on how one would fit. On a whim I picked up a lace one because the strappy back was just too cute. After one wear I was hooked. I love wearing this bralette around the house (like when I’m lounging in my pajamas for way too much of the day) or over a bulky sweater. Love it so much that I bout it in pink too!

Jeans: 7 for All Mankind; Off5th
Bralette: Xhilaration for Target
OTK Boots: LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s; similar on clearance at Target here and here

The sweater I am wearing to create this look is from a previous Victoria’s Secret collection. It is a multi-way sweater that can be worn as a cowl neck, off the shoulder, or one shoulder like I […]

Ruffle Bomber Jacket

Ruffle Bomber Jacket | Style In Shape

It’s safe to say that my obsession for outerwear is always present (but it kicks into high gear when the weather turns cool!). So when I saw this ruffle bomber jacket at Kohl’s over the summer, I knew it would be a great addition to my jacket collection. Little did I know that ruffle bomber jackets would be so popular for fall this year! Have you seen this one at Target? I was there the other day, and loved the feel of the material! (and under $30!) I’m pretty sure I am channeling the 80’s or 90’s in this outfit because something […]

Wife. Mom. Boss. A new perspective on conquering it all

Wife. Mom. Boss.  A new favorite shirt for a Sunday Funday with the fam in my home city. Enjoyed our little afternoon watching trains, sipping cava and eating tacos in the Cleveland Flats.

Transition Florals with Fall Accessories

I was not sure I would get to wear this dress again this fall but babes- it is still reaching in the 80’s here (and all week too!) I really can not believe this weather we are having! By adding rich textures and fall staples I can take a spring floral dress into fall. Which is clutch in this weather! I purchased this dress on clearance at Kohl’s online over the summer for $10 to put back for fall. I thought even though it is a spring floral dress that the sleeves and rich hues it could still be pulled […]

Sweatshirt Dress is a MUST for Fall

Hey babes! Sorry for the MIA the rest of last week. We had some yard work done and they happen to cut our internet cable too. Technicians came over the weekend to repair our wires. We are a streaming household (we cut cable over 4 years ago!) so a few days without internet is both challenging and refreshing! One of the fall trends for 2017 that I am loving is the sweatshirt dress! Comfy, cute and easy to dress up or down. They are a must have for early fall weather! Although not this past weekend or upcoming week here. […]

Sunflowers and Gingham

Pairing a perfect early fall activity with an end of summer classic style! Keep reading to find out more! There is this amazing sunflower field in Yellow Springs, Ohio. My husband and I have lived in Dayton for almost 8 years and admittedly this was our first time visiting. The field is gorgeous! However I had no idea what to expect visiting a sunflower field. There are tons of bees! Thankfully the little terrors are drunk on pollen and could care less about us moving through the field. I did not expect the flowers to be so tall or itchy […]

Transition into Fall with a Denim Vest

Happy Labor Day friends! I hope you’ve enjoyed the weekend! We were fortunate to catch a breakfast with some friends that were in town visiting. Then the little man had a birthday party. We also visited a gorgeous sunflower field, enjoyed burgers at a favorite joint and had some fun at Alter Fest (a local festival). Not to mention lots of hang out time at home. It was a pretty perfect weekend! Fall tempted us with her refreshing cool weather earlier this weekend but the last two days it’s been HOT. I did grab a #PSL, so there’s that! Hello […]

What I wore: St Pat’s Day!

I am super excited that the gorgeous green blouse my husband bought me for Christmas now fits! Over the holidays I instantly fell in love with the rich green hue and pleated back of this blouse. It kinda killed me to watch it sit in my closet but there was no way it was going to look good over the bump! I styled it with cigarette jeans, suede wedged booties and simple jewelry for our St. Patrick’s celebration this year. We met some friends for the kids to play, watch Irish dancing and of course a little green beer. What did you do? […]

Cold Shoulder for Winter Date Night

I truly have a love for the burgundy/merlot/wine family. And today I’m sharing another one of the pieces I picked up in that color. So let me start by saying I am not the biggest fan of cold shoulder tops. Idk why, they just aren’t really me?… However, the moment I put my hands on this cold shoulder knit top, I didn’t care if that style is me or not- I wanted to wear this fabric ASAP. Maybe it’s the winter, or maybe it’s the Mama Bear in me- but if it’s soft and comfy, I have to have it […]
