Sweet Parrish Place Style {Vol. 15}

black and purple tunic dress with black boots3

Hey all! Welcome to my weekly style post!  Every week, I take pictures of my outfits and join other bloggers around blogland who do the same. These posts are something that I really enjoy, because I have always had a passion for fashion. I love putting together new outfits, and shopping my own closet to wear things in different ways. I wear the clothes I own forever, but I usually don’t wear any item in the exact same way more than once or twice.  As a middle school counselor, I am always looking for inspiration, and ways to be stylish, professional, and age appropriate, and I hope to provide that same inspiration to other women and mothers in similar professions or lifestyles.  I bought this black and purple tunic dress a few years ago at the Banana Republic Outlet, and I still love it.  I like the retro vibe it gives off.  This is the first time I have tried layering this black striped turtleneck under it, and I liked the contrast, and it was really cold that day so it was much needed!

This was a cold, snowy work day, and  I just wanted to be cozy.  You can see the chevron scarf styled with a different outfit here.  I bought the scarf last winter at a small local boutique.

This is what I wore for date night with LC for Valentines Day.  It was a blizzard outside, but we braved the snow and went out to dinner and a movie anyway.  I purchased this plaid jacket at Goodwill recently.  These are not the best pictures, but I didn’t have time to get out my real camera, plus it was dark out.  So LC took this on his phone.

I am wearing this “N” necklace with this outfit, but the pictures don’t show it very well.  LC bought me this necklace for Valentines Day.  And I Love, Love Love it!  It is neutral enough to wear with anything, and I will be wearing this for years to come.

This was casual Friday, and the day before Valentines Day, so I thought pink was in order.  I love these Coach sneakers that I took from my daughter when she was getting rid of them.  They are lined with fur (no longer available).  I can’t link back to anything in this outfit, because it is all a couple of years old.  Although I will mention that the jeans I am wearing are Lucky Brand jeans, and I love them, they are one of my most comfortable pairs of jeans.
