Back with the Basics

Hope you all had a great weekend! The hubby and I finally had a date night after many months so stay tuned for an upcoming post with more details and a look at my outfit.  If you are interested in a sneak peak at where we went you can check out a couple of pics I posted on my Instagram.  I’m back today with the basics my neutral sweater, scarf and skinnies.  I’m quite a sucker for neutral tones in the winter and anything that is cozy and warm of course. I wore this for a day out with the family and it’s also something I would wear to work on a casual paper work day.  The sweater, scarf and tank are all from American Eagle Outfitters a favourite store of mine.  Luckily for me (not so lucky for my wallet though) I have a friend who work’s their so I get the scoop on upcoming sales, private events and the like.

    There’s just something so easy about that outfit, right? I love it how you’ve paired the scarf with the sweater and boots. A similar one is on repeat in my world too. I found you from Stylelixir’s linkup today.

    This outfit is gorgeous! I love the mix of neutrals – I want to try pairing a beige sweater with a cream scarf.

    I too am gravitating more towards neutrals and especially dark neutrals during winter, I ease up a bit on the black come spring. Your booties are absolutely fab, I have a weak spot for wedges.

    Thank you for linking up to #reasonstodress when I was co-hosting 🙂 Have a great week!
