New Beginnings and a Little Blogging Break

Back in November I was given the opportunity to turn my life long passion for fashion into a full-time career and I took a job as the Corporate/Head Stylist for Entourage Clothing.  It's really been a dream come true!  I wake up every morning and can't believe I finally get to make a living doing what I love.  But along with this dream job has come long hours and not much time for other passions ~ like my blog.  I never intended to take a two and a half month blogging break ~ it just happened with the busyness of my new schedule.  Thank you for hanging in there as I figure out balance and get back to a regular blogging schedule.  Until then, please follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (mzsavvystyle) where I share OOTD's and snaps of my day!  And make sure to check out my Shop Page where I've added some of my favorite clothes, accessories, beauty products and other finds I'm loving for the spring!  I'll be adding new items several times a week!

Jingle Bell Frock ~ Retro Christmas

If you've read my blog for long or if you follow me on Instagram then you already know that I love a good jumpsuit.  I believe the little black jumpsuit can replace the little black dress in many instances and can even be a bit more chic because it's unexpected.  So when I was on a recent shopping trip to the Shops Around Lenox looking for the perfect "Jingle Bell Frock", I stopped by American Apparel and I knew this velvet jumpsuit would be the perfect addition to my holiday wardrobe the minute I laid eyes on it!  A black velvet jumpsuit is a little bit retro, a little bit glam and a lot of fun, don't you think?  It's perfect for just about any holiday parties I have on my calendar ~ from Christmas to New Years ~ and would also work for a nice dinner out with the Hubs or even an evening winter wedding.  To give my jumpsuit a Christmas vibe for a recent party I added red plaid pumpssparkly statement earrings, a long gold necklace and of course, a red lip!  To keep things interesting, instead of carrying the expected black or red clutch I paired my outfit with a camo crossbody bag which I have become obsessed with since I got it at Tootsies during the same shopping trip.

Styled Three Ways ~ DL1961 Emma Jeans

Hey Everyone!  Me and my blogger bests, Jennifer Duvall and Molly Moon Burton, are back with another addition of our "Styled Three Ways" collaboration.  This time we are each styling a pair of DL1961 Emma Jeans in "drizzle" which is a really cool worn-in gray wash.  I haven't owned a pair of gray jeans in a long time and was super excited when these arrived in my mailbox!  Gray is having a color moment of late and the styling possibilities for these super comfy jeans are endless!

I paired my jeans with a poncho, tunic shirt and booties, all of which of which are hot trends this season.  I'm loving ponchos, aren't you?  I have a few now and they are such a fun completer piece.  I mean, what's better than wearing a stylish blanket all day long?  I'm all about cozy chic fashion!

~ What I'm Wearing ~

Gray Jegging Jeans: DL1961 c/o {These jeans are so comfy they feel like your wearing leggings, not jeans!  I'm planning on getting them in another color or two ASAP!}
Plaid Poncho: Target {The one I'm wearing is already sold out online but may still be in store.  I linked two similar ponchos here and here.}
Henley Tunic Top: Target
Wine Booties: Kenneth Cole REACTION {They come in a few colors}
Necklace: Stella & Dot
Crossbody Bag: Vera Bradley c/o {Completely obsessed with this one!!}

Make sure to check out Jennifer's blog, JennySue Makeup, and Molly's blog, Hey There Sunshine, to get all the details on how they styled their DL1961 Jeans!

Green's My Favorite

A new week and a new blog post! Yay!!  Last week was crazy with wrapping up at the old job and the start of the new job so (once again) time for blogging took a back seat.  I'm hoping once the holidays are over and I've got a handle on the new job's schedule I'll have time for a regular posting routine.  As for now you will just have to bear with me as I'm on a post-when-I-can schedule! ;-)

Do you have a favorite color?  One that you are just drawn to?  I have two, green and tiffany/turquoise blue, but I'd have to say that green is my favorite.  And I've never met a green sweater I didn't like.  Seriously.  I'm like a magpie to a shinny object when I spy a green sweater!  I did a little shopping last week at Entourage and picked up this sweater (and a few more things) because... it's a gorgeous shade of green, it's a tunic and it has fringe!!

~ What I'm Wearing ~

Tunic Sweater: Entourage {similar}
Faux Leather Pants: {old} This pair is on my Christmas list!
Suede Tall Boots: {old} These are almost identical and under $200!
Necklace: Stella & Dot {It can be worn five different ways!}
Camo Crossbody Bag: Hammitt via Tootsies {It was love at first sight ~ I'm obsessed!!}

What color are you drawn to?
