Checkmate

Sharing My Sole - Checkmate

 
Apologies for being MIA on the blog yesterday.  I got in late Sunday night from a weekend work trip and a blog post was just not in the cards.  So, starting my week on a Tuesday.  Hello!  This checked vest is back and we are facing this northeast snow blast together.  Stay warm, friends.

Welcome back, weekend! We got a blast of major snow mid-week, but I tried not to let the cold and snow get me down. I found time to make some delicious homemade granola this week and went to happy hour with some friends. I’ve also been getting into barre classes lately – anyone else? I’m actually off to North Carolina today. As always, you can follow along with my adventures on instagram. (@sharingmysole)

A few favorites from around the web…

I mentioned my recent love for Topshop in Monday’s post, and here is another Topshop favorite. This sweater is super cozy, adorable and flattering. I tried on the grey but love the green color too.

My favorite Bauble Bar earrings are back in stock! Go. Plus I love this ring.

These grey booties are on my wish list.

In case you need some book recommendations, I recently finished Wild and really loved it. Plus Gone Girl and Yes Please were great. I need to figure out which book to dive into next… If you have a favorite, please let me know!

Tuesday

Jaclyn Schler_J.Crew Neon Flame Coat

 
Hello Tuesday!  If you had the day off yesterday, congratulations.  I did not.  #jealous.  It seems like the first five days after the weekend are always the hardest.  (wink).  Anyway, I’m back again wearing my favorite bright coat and this little peacock feather shift dress.  I’m not entirely sure how I’m going to make it through two more months of winter weather, but I think bright colored coats may be the key.

Bloggers Who Budget: Winter For Less

Sharing My Sole - Bloggers Who Budget

The Bloggers Who Budget series is back and we are bringing you our favorite Winter for Less pieces for under $75. Now, I know I already debuted this little beauty of a jacket, but it was such a steal I had to feature it as my key piece. I have been quite impressed with the selection (and prices) at Topshop via Nordstrom lately. I snagged this incredibly cozy tunic shirt for $35 and had a dressing room full of sweaters and dresses that are now on my wish list. So if you haven’t checked out Topshop lately, it’s a good time to take a peek.

Happy Friday! It’s hard to believe it’s already January 16th! (How are those resolutions coming?) I’m off to Chicago for the weekend to visit one of my very best friends and I can’t wait to frolic around the city. You can always follow along with my adventures on Instagram!

 

Striped Scarf

 

A few favorites from around the web…

I’m working on a few upcoming beauty posts, but I wanted to share my favorite dry shampoo. It’s amazing. I’ve been trying not to wash my hair every day since it’s so staticky (I have fine hair) and this product has saved me.

I posted this cute t-shirt on Instagram yesterday and I love it. (Fun Fact: I take my coffee black. No cream and no sugar).

52 places to go in 2015. Guess what city is #21? Cleveland! Come visit.

Blanket Scarf

This scarf has been my jam all fall and winter. And I was thinking about why it’s so great and I have a hunch it’s because it’s called a ‘blanket scarf’. Anything with the word ‘blanket’ in it is a fashion winner.

I’m giving away a $150 gift card with Karen Kane – Check out my Instagram to enter!

Frozen

Jaclyn Schler_Topshop Coat

 

Two important things to discuss today… The temperature and this coat. In case you can’t tell by the glamorous salt on the sidewalk and half melted snow behind me, it’s a bit chilly here in Northeast Ohio. And by chilly I mean it was 8 degrees this weekend. This can make dressing cute difficult when I want to wear sweatpants and have a giant scarf wrapped around my entire face. Luckily I stumbled upon this adorable coat this weekend while searching through Nordstrom sale rack. There’s one benefit of the frigid temps- It forces you to stay inside and go sale rack digging. It’s my cardio.

Can you guys believe it’s already January 9th?  I can’t.  I feel like we were just celebrating Christmas and New Year’s yesterday.  Also, it’s cold as balls out.  (sorry, but it is).  In addition to going to hot yoga this week, I also took a hot bath and laid with my heating pad.  I am 85.  But honestly I just want to be warm.  Also, if anyone has any amazing tricks to tame constantly staticky hair, hit me up.

A few favorites from around the web…

J.Crew has 40% off select winter styles with code SALENEWS.  I love this tissue turtleneck tee as a great closet staple and this puffer coat is perfect for these freezing days.

Nate Berkus for Target has some amazing home décor pieces right now.  This printed floor pouf, this textured pillow and this globe light.

Did you check out my recent beauty post with Crest 3D?  Are you interested in seeing more beauty posts and reviews from me moving forward?  Would love to hear from you!

You know what I love about an oversized classic coat? You can basically wear pajamas underneath and no one would be the wiser. Maybe that will be my new outfit strategy… pajamas, oversized coat, heels. Thoughts? Anyway, I got this coat on major sale a few years ago and I love that it is still on trend and adds a little pop of color to any ordinary outfit.
