collar power.

I’m slowly getting myself back together after a wonderful winter vacation in New Orleans this past week! After looking forward to time away from Chicago and work, it was nice to finally relax, sight see, and drink a few too many glasses of wine {I was in New Orleans after all!} 
In true vacation spirit, I kept all my looks last week casual & comfy while wandering the charming streets of New Orleans. My go-to look was the combination of my favorite Zara jacket paired with my new bedazzled Anthro sweater for a little extra sparkle {because really, you can never have too much sparkle, right?}.  I topped off the look with a Serene Sky necklace turned bracelet that I love. It’s dainty enough to go with everything, but it’s deco flair keeps it funky and unique.  For more fun Serene Sky pieces, check out the ladies of Midwest Style Bloggers rocking out their looks today!
I hope you all enjoying some much needed r&r with friends and family – I can’t believe 2014 is right around the corner! Hope you’re planning to celebrate in style {and with lots of bubbly of course} xx
