If You Like it, then You Should Have Put a Sweater On It…

Sweaters have basically been my uniform the past couple of weeks. Sweaters over blouses, sweaters over plaid shirts, sweaters over dresses, etc. The comfiness and warmth that it brings to your outfit as you brave the outdoors this winter season  is the cherry on top. 🙂 So if you have that collared shirt or summer dress that you can’t bear to keep hidden in your closet, go ahead and put a sweater on it.

** Don’t forget to enter the Ora Delphine giveaway for your chance to win an amazing clutch {value $175}!

So I just realized that SWA has been around for over a year and I missed my chance for a “Blog’s First Birthday” post. Sorry blog, I didn’t mean to forget. 

But I want to thank YOU, for taking the time to reading, following, and encouraging. Cheers to many more years together! 🙂

Here’s a snapshot of my first post and my attempt today to recreate it.
{Apparently, I was a better jumper back then. :P}

Winter Crops – and GIVEAWAY

 Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but the weekend could not come any sooner! You would think that towards the end of the semester my teacher list of things to do would start to dwindle, but sadly no. It’s going to be a sprint to the finish line…well, I guess the half way mark.

15737623290_24a59bf85b_o15924273812_30848d4b4f_o-2

Remember that crop top you bought during the summer? Well don’t put it away just yet! You can layer it up for the winter. I paired this silk crop top from Anthropologie over a sleeveless button down from Talbots. The key thing about layering is the fabric. I chose to mix similar loose and soft fabrics together to keep the romantic-esque feel , but then added a structured blazer to keep it professional at work. Lo and behold, I wasn’t mistaken for a student today. I call that a successful outfit. 

15737624040_bc4e68fff4_oOh and how can I forget my new favorite bag from Ora Delphine? The Bijou Rowan Tote is $100 off RIGHT NOW. Don’t waste another second! The quality leather exterior and impeccable details make this the perfect accessory to any outfit! The side accent zippers adds a little funky twist to the classic style as well as a great contrast gold color.

Note: The Bijou Rowan Tote is also available in other colors!

Keep scrolling for the giveaway!

Camels and Stripes

Three things that I learned from this outfit:

1) If you need to wash your hair but don’t want to lose the waves that you worked so hard for the night before…Dry Shampoo (try this!)
2) Be careful about what shorts you wear when you go mattress shopping if you get my drift.
3) This might be the first time that I’ve mixed prints. I’m kind of liking it!

Oak and Florals

Three day weekend are nice aren’t they? If only society changed the work week to Tu-Fri instead. 🙂 Sadly, it’s time to get back to work but lucky for me there are only 9 more days of school left! In the mean time, you can find me chugging coffee trying to push through. Ha.

Today I bring you a spring look full of florals and color!

If you haven’t heard of Oak 73 yet, let me be the first to introduce you to this online brand. They focus on the classic shapes but they put a twist on them that makes the apparel anything but boring. Also, I love how all their products are made in the U.S.A. Fabulous designs + Quality make = Happy Girl 

I’m wearing their Painted Floral Dress which is the perfect summer dress as the weather continues to warm up. It’s sleeveless but I wanted to wear it to work so I decided to throw on a blazer to make it more appropriate.

Playing Hooky

Technically I’m not playing hooky because my school actually has Cinco De Mayo off, but sometimes I like to feel that I am capable of such craziness and whimsy. 😛 And if you’re reading this and thoughts of jealousy arises because you’re in the office right now, know that I am at Starbucks right now grading 150 math tests and lesson planning for the week. I’m in the same boat as you are. 🙂

Anyways, here’s my casual outfit for the day. There’s nothing like throwing on some boyfriend jeans and a white tee for a day off. Comfy, casual, but not sweats.

It’s All in the Bag – Ora Delphine

DSC_8550

Yes, this outfit looks very similar to my New York Wannabe post, but that’s because I wanted you to focus on this gorgeous new bag courtesy of Ora Delphine. The Adele Satchel by Ora Delphine is one to admire and desire because of its sleek design, quality leather, and golden details. You’re going to love the size. Large enough to carry the essentials, plus a tablet, or camera and it has enough pockets to be efficient. Minimalistic. Modern. Classy. And it also comes in a variety of classic colors. I decided to go with purple because it was on the borderline between edgy and neutral.

My outfit posts rarely include handbags, but I think that’s going to change. You’ll be seeing this baby around quite often. 🙂  BTW, if you continue to scroll down, you will have a chance to win a piece from Ora Delphine!
