Although the days are finally getting longer, winter is still in full swing, so here’s the next installment in the Winter Wonderland Series. As usual, I’ve included some pretty feminine touches with the bow and the gorgeous patterned tights. I absolutely love the yellow pea coat with the cute polka dot scarf and it seemed wrong to pair it with anything but a skirt. The first outfit is much more casual with the slouchy sweater and hat and cozy boots. Hope you like it!

Now that I’m finished with the Back to School series I figured I would do a Back to Business series for those of us who aren’t students anymore. Since I graduated in the Spring I now spend most of my time looking for a job so that I can actually afford to go to grad school next fall. I’ve never really had to own business clothes before, but now that I’m venturing into that fashion realm I’m really enjoying it. I’m not going to lie, I feel pretty grown up in my blazer and slacks, not to mention powerful. Anyway, so this series will introduce some outfits that can be worn at work, if the dress code requires it, or can be used to make an impression in an interview. Hopefully you get some good ideas!
Moving on to the actual outfit. As you know I don’t usually use yellow in my Ravenclaw outfits since it isn’t actually one of the official colors, but I think this outfit really needed that bright pop of color to make it a little more fun instead of all business. The owl earrings also go along with that sentiment. I love earrings, but I wouldn’t wear giant flashy earrings when I’m trying to be taken seriously, so these small studs are a good compromise. The shoes and the clutch add a little bit of pattern to the outfit. I know that using black and dark blue is usually a no-no, but I’ve never really been one to follow that rule religiously and I think that it works here. I hope you like it!
