Don’t mind my inner diva that came out during this shoot (so serious)…..  I’m giving the Blue Steel a run for the money!

This isn’t anything special other than showing how you can intermix-interblend your seasonal wardrobe.  A summer maxi with a winter-woven-capelet-thingy and boots (of course)!  Voila and easy!  As of late, I’ve found myself putting less and less effort into making my “outfits” extra-out-of-the-ordinary… instead, I find myself reaching for whatever is clean, not wrinkled, and cozy.  Maybe it’s the almost-30 kicking in or the fact that wedding season isn’t over until December 29th and I’m constantly on the go… nonetheless, I’m gravitating towards the E.C.B. (easy, comfy and blending the seasons).  Anyone with me?!?

Something else that’s settling well with me you ask???  This bad-to-the-bone hair style featured on the main page of Anthropologie.  Seriously… this should be every gals go-to Holiday updo.  Sexy, fresh and haphazard… the perfect pretty disaster.  I love!

{What I’m Wearing} Dress: Anthro {old}, Shrug: Anthro {new, but can’t find online}, Boots: Frye, Watch: Michael Kors {Old}, Bracelets: Petal, Shades: Tory Burch {available in store only}, Clutch: Aldo {old}
