Darth Vader Cardigan

Besides my obsession with Star Wars for the week, lately, I have really been getting into the holiday spirit. I decked the tree with storm trooper décor, have been listening to holiday music in the office, and of course, taking the ‘long way home’ in order to see the pretty lights in the neighborhood. Besides those festive things one thing that really has been making it feel like the holiday season is the cooler temps. In Dallas, by cooler, I mean ‘cardigan appropriate’  which is something that I will never complain about.

One cardigan that I have gotten SO much wear out of lately with this weather is this Star Wars Darth Vader Cardigan. Not only is it the perfect cardigan that compliments literally everything in my closet, Darth Vader's imposing face is embroidered on the back and it is currently on sale for under $40. Yes, I have joined the dark side with this one. -xo Mel

Star Wars Rebel Sweater

It's finally here!!! Star Wars The Last Jedi release in theatres this week and my daughter and I can not wait! I might have a Star Wars obsession ... alongside with the rest of humanity. I have been watching Star Wars ever since I was a little girl. While most girls were playing with Barbies, I was trying to be a Jedi and Princess Leia (In my mind, I am).

I recently found this black and white Star Wars Rebel sweater just in time for the big day. Since the weather has been oh so perfect in Dallas, a casual Star Wars Rebel Sweater, black jeans, leather jacket, and my other most recent favorite find - Adidas Flashback sneakers in black/white from Nordstrom makes for an easy geek outfit to go to the movies. For me, not only is it a super rebellious outfit to just throw on, I love how effortlessly put together I feel when I wear outfits like this one.

This look is such an easy ‘Star Wars outfit’ to throw on when seeing Star Wars The Last Jedi … who else is counting down the days? May the Force Be With You this week! -xo Mel

Red Cozy Sweater

A sweater, black leggings, and ankle boots have been my go-to uniform since the end of November. I mean the combination is not only classic, but it is really quite comfortable.

I snagged this balloon sleeve ruffle sweater in red at Express (currently on sale) and got it in a medium for more of a baggy fit. I absolutely love the color red not only because it is my sorority color, but the fact it such a beautifully bold statement color. I have to say that although I was not sure how much wear I would actually get out of this cozy red sweater, it is definitely going to be on repeat, especially when the temperatures drop. It literally goes with every shade of dark denim and leggings and I just adore the balloon sleeve look a lot lately and the coziness of it is an extra bonus! 

This red cozy sweater with black leggings and cute studded ankle boots from Nordstrom makes for a great all day casual outfit. If red isn't your thing, this sweater style is also available in other colors. I cannot wait to continue to wear it throughout February … especially around Valentine's day (if it's still cold by then, of course). Dang you Texas weather!
