This Top is a recent in-store purchase at Target. (UPDATE: It's now available online and link above has been updated.) I actually pulled this very shirt off a mannequin in store because I liked it on the rack, but there were none in my size. Then I spotted a mannequin in the accessories department wearing it and lo and behold, she had on my size! Luckily she was wearing t-shirt underneath so I didn't have to feel quite as awkward leaving her topless! I'm sure the security people will get a laugh when they review the tapes but hey, I paid for it and there were no associates around to help so you gotta do what you gotta do! I thought a long sleeve plaid shirt would be nice for a our milder days, and this one is very soft and comfortable, similar to my Express plaid shirts but not as oversized. I took the same size in this as I wear at Express and it's a nice, relaxed fit.
This Necklace was a very thoughtful, generous Christmas gift from Carylee and I absolutely love it! The length is easily adjustable so it can be worn as a choker or even longer than I'm wearing it here. So convenient to have it work with any neckline!
Earrings: Last but not least, this is my first pair of leather earrings and wow! I can see what all the fuss is about! They are light as a feather (coincidentally), which is perfect for me because I like big earrings but I don't like them to be very heavy, so it's hard to find something that fits both criteria.

The Fringe Studio:
I recently made a new fellow Express-shopping friend on Instagram whose jewelry I was admiring. It turns out, she made it herself and also sells it in her Etsy shop! She graciously gifted me several pieces to try, but I would gladly purchase these myself, especially considering all of her prices are very reasonble (under $20!). Kristi blogs over at The Daily Fringe, so if you're looking for more inspo on how to style your Express pieces or lightweight earrings to go with your outfits be sure to check her out!

Have a great weekend and a safe and happy New Year! I'm brainstorming some new scheduling and content ideas for 2017 so hopefully I can figure that out over the next couple of days and be ready to go next week!
