Put a Brooch on It

Put a Brooch on It

c/o Sweet & Spark brooches (similar here), J.Mclaughlin cashmere poncho (30% off today), J.Crew turtleneck, c/o Mark & Graham bag, AG jeans

A few weeks ago, Sweet & Spark sent me a few brooches to play with. I haven’t rocked a brooch in quite a while so I got inspiration from Jillian’s post, How to Wear a Brooch 9 Ways. I went in my own direction though, and amped up the sparkle on my plaid bag. This bag/brooch sitch will be great for holiday but given that we still have a few months (wait, weeks?), I paired it with plaid and a cozy cashmere poncho (which is 30% off today!).

I have to say I didn’t really get the poncho trend until I got one of my own. Let me tell you a secret… It’s just a fancy way to wear a blanket in public which is basically my life dream all winter long. Good luck getting me out of them this winter.

    I love this look, Julia!! (And do we think we need to buy 10 of those J.Crew turtlenecks to get us through the fall and winter seasons? Haha — I wear mine at least twice per week!)

    I’m so obsessed with adding vintage brooches to all my looks right now! Plus, it’s fun to go brooch-hunting at my local antique stores.

    Love how you styled yours right on your bag, I don’t know if I’d wear one on my sweater (maybe depending on my mood) but I can get behind this way more!
