When I wore this outfit to work the other day, my colleague said she thought I looked like British royalty. Off to play polo with my chums, cheerio! I was really flattered, but in the back of my mind, I definitely thought I looked like a fairly chic nerd, and that's the way I like it! I'll own my nerd status any day ;)

With it being so cold out recently, I wanted to layer up in style. By layering an oxford, sweater vest, and blazer, I was nice and toasty and felt very stylish and professional. While I don't define my style as preppy, I definitely wear preppy elements on a regular basis because it's always classic, flattering, and put-together.

This is the first time I've debuted my glasses on the blog! I only wear them for distance, mostly for driving or if I'm at a concert or movie. I had to throw them on for this post though because I feel extra smart in them. :)

I hope everyone has been safe and sound this week. The weather has been so crazy here, giving our local schools their first snow day of the year. I had a blast hanging out with Ashlie yesterday on her day off; I really treasure those moments when there are no obligations or things to take care of--just simply fun quality time. She also helped me with a surprise that I will debut soon on the blog . . . it's probably not that big of a deal, but it is to me! I'm really happy with how it turned out. Anyway, be careful out there! Thanksgiving in T-minus ONE DAY!
