Happy Monday, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I headed up north for a weekend filled with  family and relaxation at our lake house and it was so needed! I also went to the annual Fall Diddley with my mom on Sunday, and had and absolute blast. I mean...when in doubt, do some shopping with family I say. ;)  

Ok, let's talk about my outfit, shall we? I titled this post "dare to pair" because this is defiantly one of those pairings that not everyone is going to love and try out for themselves. That's Ok, I get it.. it's different, but I loved it all the same! And can we just take a moment and discuss this sweater jacket? I mean... #fallfashiongoals. It's super cozy and warm and the perfect layering piece for pretty much any outfit all season long.

Sweater Game on Point

Holy TGIF friends! This has been a very difficult week for me, but I am happy to say that I have not only survived, but I am that much stronger for doing so. And isn't that what this wonderful thing called life is all about? Growing, learning, spreading love and positivity to friends and  strangers alike, and getting though those lows with as much grace and strength as possible. OK, enough about me, let's talk about this amazing sweater with bow tie sleeves! 

This is the third post this week about the Luxewear collection at Ann Taylor. In Monday and Wednesday's post, I was wearing head-to-toe Luxewear, but today, it's all about the cozy knit. This sweater is so soft and comfortable, the olive green color is gorgeous, and it's an amazing wardrobe staple. By adding these adorable bows on the sleeves, the sweater now becomes a bit more dressy and a bit more unique making it a closet must-have. Plus, the site has a 40% sale going on, so that's even more incentive to shop (and did I mention it comes in four colors?).... just saying! ;)

Bows on Bows on Bows

Happy Wednesday friends, welcome back to Luxewear week here on Stilettos & Diaper Bags. This collection is so amazing, I couldn't wait to style these specific pieces together. Separately, they are all such fun pieces so in my mind, they just had to be styled together! For starters, these are the same zipper detail leggings from Monday's outfit post. As I said on that post, all items from this collection are excellent for mixing and matching with everything you already have in your wardrobe. The tunic I styled under the turtleneck is a gorgeous top in it's own right and can easily be worn over skinny jeans and mules for effortless everyday wear. The sleeveless turtleneck can also be styled alone (with just a bra under) and look just as chic because of the beautiful fit and side details.

Luxewear Has Arrived

OMG you guys, I am so excited about today's post! I recently teamed up with Ann Taylor to check out their new LUXEWEAR collection, and it is giving me all the feels. In fact, this entire week here on Stilettos & Diaper Bags is all about showing you guys some of my favorite Luxewear styled outfits. If you follow me over on IG, they you saw my recent trip to Ann Taylor at Oakbrook Center where I tried on lot of different pieces from this collection. 

This collection is full of amazing basics, most of which have a unique twist on the normal by adding bow tie details, but I digress... The first thing I noticed was the color pallet, which includes mostly back, gray, navy, green, and a mustard hue. Which, excuse me while I gush in the corner! ;)  Here is the first look I picked out to share with you.

In the Band Jacket

My jacket obsession is in full effect as we are finally seeing some cooler temps here in the Midwest. This jacket, rightfully named "in the band jacket", is the perfect amount of rocker and chic all at the same time. That my friends, is something I can get behind. I and black were made to be paired together and this jacket from cabi Clothing is style perfection!
