Happy almost New Year! I’m looking forward to seeing what 2017 has in store. Thank you so much for all of your support this year. For this post I teamed up with Nordstrom to showcase some of my essential winter basics for dressing up and staying warm. When the weather gets cold I tend to live in jeans, a cozy sweater, boots, and a puffer jacket but there are times when I really want to feel a little more dressed up and have the same level of comfort. On these days a classic black skirt, black tights, and my favorite pair of Ferragamo shoes are my go to. I love dressing up the look with a simple white blouse and a statement necklace, such as these Loren Hope jewels featured in this post. To complete the look a bold jacket always adds a little extra pizzazz. 

                                   Special thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!
