A word about the Free People Hard Candy Embellished Sleeve Tee (last worn here; buy here, here, here, and here): it’s one of my favorite finds lately and I picked up an extra for a friend this holiday season (yes, her feedback was positive). I found the scoop neckline to be a little low cut on me (and I suspect this might be an issue for those similar to me in constitution) but the crochet and bead details at the cuff are so incredibly beautiful that I am willing to overlook the mildly awkward fit.


The fit is true to size for the brand but this fabric has little give so you might consider sizing up for a looser fit.

J. Crew Lady Day Coat in Oasis Green (from 2011; last worn here) | Free People Hard Candy Embellished Sleeve Tee (also here) | Forever 21 Bold Bow Skinny Jeans | Kate Spade Primrose Hill Little Kaelin Bag | Dolce Vita Madison Pumps

I would also recommend these Forever 21 Bold Bow Skinny Jeans which are quite unique and rather affordable at $22.80. The quality is mediocre but the concept irresistible for bow lovers.

On the sale front, shop Express’s 40% off sitewide sale until Monday, no code needed. I like the Polka Dot Ankle Jeggings, Embroidered Lace Tee, Textured Tweed A-Line Skirt, Faux Leather Double Peplum Moto Jacket, and High-waist Pleated Skirt.

And all styles in the Stuart Weitzman sale section are now 50% off. Consider the Highline Boots, 5050 Boots (six colors), Reserve Boots, Tuxbow Pumps, and Hitchup Pumps.
