Casual Friday + Giveaway!

Happy Friday lovelies! It's been a little while since I've had any new looks; so I'm excited to have new outfits and a giveaway to tell you about!

When I first moved to Alaska it was hard getting used to how casual the people are. With the cold temperatures and slick sidewalks I had to adjust my wardrobe for some time, but spring has almost sprung- so let the blogging begin again. My style has progressively become more simple, but I'm not mad about it. Don't get me wrong I still have dressy days, but with the amount of snow still on the ground and cold it's better to be warm and comfortable.

I paired this simple cold shoulder top with my favorite new pair of Dr.Martens. These shoes are not only fashionable but also functional with the amazing traction they have. For the days I really don't want to put any thought into my look I go for a long sweater- this one from AmiClubwear. This was my first time shopping at this online shop and I was so pleasantly surprised with the quality. Unlike some shops, every item looked the same on as it did on the website.

I recently got to work with Jord Watches and styled both of these casual Friday looks with it. Where to start; from the beautiful packaging to the timepiece itself, everything about Jord is simple, classy, and chic. I chose from their wood collection as this is something I haven't seen much of in watch styles, and I am in love. Now you guys have a chance to enter a giveaway that they're hosting! Everyone who enters will get a $25 code and one lucky winner will receive a $100 gift card. The giveaway closes in just one week so make sure to go enter now.

The Midi

Warmer days are ahead of us which can make dressing for work, interviews, and business meetings difficult. It's time to trade your slacks in for a midi skirt, long sleeve button ups for a black cutoff top, and get ready to rock dressy-casual like no one has seen before.

I fell in love with the midi skirt last December and my collection has been growing ever since. The three that I have were all found in Zara's sale section- I just can't get enough! This look started out with the basics: top, skirt, and shoes. Belts and hats are my go to accessories and I used both to give this look a little something extra. Nothing big or flashy, just some simple accessories with gold accents to give the look a little spice.

Like the look but not a fan of the ensemble? Ditch the belt or switch up the hat- just have fun with it!
