Yeti







Our weather did some serious warming up this past weekend so I jumped at the chance to wear some of my lighter pieces (hello white denim). I picked up this coat during a recent sale and I'm not quite sure why I like it so much, but Clay seems to go back and forth between calling me a Yeti and a jumping spider..

If you are traveling this week, be safe (and stay calm)!

Black and White





Banana Republic Pant / Splendid Tee / Christian Louboutin Pigalle / Zara Jacket (old) / Coach Purse

I am obsessed with these pants. A year ago I would have been like uh nah oh no. From the drape athletic look to the scrunched up ankle bands, these would have screamed 'sweatpants' to me. Now I want to wear them everywhere (to the annoyance of my boyfriend).

I ended up getting the Petite 00 because I was hoping the draped effect wouldn't be so obvious and that the ankle would hit at the right spot. That worked out perfectly, no one can accuse me of Bieber-ing my pants anytime soon.

And speaking of fit, it's probably a well known fact already, but if you are eyeing a pair of Louboutin Pigalle pumps, they definitely run a half size small. I made that mistake with my first pair (an easy fix is to get them stretched by a cobbler) and for my next pair went a half size up and they fit perfectly.

Have you tried these before? Did you have the same issue with fit?

Wrapped





I've been pretty stubborn about this whole winter thing. I refuse to bring out my bigger coats yet and am pretty adamant about waiting until it actually gets cold out. Because if I learned anything about the Polar Vortex last year, it's that if you think this is cold.. it can and will get much colder.

Today I took a simple cardigan sweater and wrapped it around me like a coat. In the sun, I felt completely fine. And when it got colder at night, I wore a pair of elbow length gloves so that my arms were covered. 

If you are a complete wuss (it can happen to the best of us) and already wearing your sleeping bag coats, that's cool, you can always just wear this sweater as a layering piece over dresses or jeans and a tee. Doesn't hurt that it's under $30!

Winter Wants

Winter Wishlist

Winter is here folks and here are a few things I've been checking out. I'm all about cozy sweaters right now so couldn't resist this gorgeous one from Rebecca Taylor (and it's on sale!). I recently checked out the leopard Loeffler Randall kicks and I'm loving having a comfy shoe that is still fun. This coat from Ann Taylor (they are really killing it lately) looks just like this one from Theory but at a fraction of the price, I ordered it over the weekend and can't wait to see it in person.

Little Black Jumpsuit








Topshop Jumpsuit / Sole Society Heels (old but similar here) / Nicholas Belt (similar)

I had the pleasure of attending a pre-holiday happy hour hosted by Nicole of Cedar and Rush and Classic Remix boutique (24 E. Erie Street). I've never been inside the shop before but am so excited to have it on my radar now because they have the best selection of gifts and housewares which are perfect for shopping for those hard to please people in your life. I loved the reasonably priced jewelry as well as the decorative items like the golden grenade (omg!) and the glassware. 

All the bloggers tagged our favorite items in the shop and got to know the owner over champagne and cheese. They had me at champagne..yum.

If you are in the Chicago area I highly recommend popping into this shop to take a look around, I can almost guarantee you won't leave empty handed. And during the week of December 8th, if you mention Hunter Style, you will receive 10% off your purchase! I'll post a reminder on our Facebook page so you won't forget. 

Be sure to also check out the other blogger sites, all of whom were really great women to get to know and who specialize in different topics:

**A quick note on the jumpsuit I have on. I'm wearing a petite so that I didn't have to worry about the length but it also comes in regular sizing. I ended up going one size up because the bust portion of this piece is actually really tight and I wanted to be able to breath during the night. The legs are nice and roomy which would be perfect for anyone that is curvier and I appreciated the ease it was to walk around and sit down. I love the idea of wearing a chunky sweater over this during the day and then taking it off for a girls night out! This is definitely one of my favorite pieces I've recently picked up and can be dressed up or down so easily with the right accessories.

A Very Berry Birthday




Asos coat (old but obsessed with this one) / Forever 21 Sweater (under $20!) / Sole Society Purse
DL1961 Jeans / Isabel Marant Booties (old but love these) / Club Monaco Gloves (similar)

Yesterday was my birthday so today all I'm going to say is WOOHOOOOOOOO! I turned 29 and as terrifying as it is to get closer to 30, I have to be honest, I'd much rather be 30 than 20. What can I say, I'm an old soul.

Movember







Brooks Brothers Coat / Persol Sunglasses / Chukkas via Gilt Group (similar) / Vintage Gloves 

I pledge allegiance, to the 'stache, for the United States of Movember. I'll grow it long and wear it proud, to raise funds and awareness for cancer.

I've never seen so many glorious moustaches in my life and I'm not sorry to see more and more every year. There is something really Tom Selleck awesome about a moustache. Maybe I am biased because my dad had one when I was growing up, but I think Clay looks pretty dapper with one. It's a thing of beauty I tell you.

Also let's talk about this freaking coat (in your best Boston accent please). I remember when Clay got this pea coat as a gift and he wasn't so sure about it at first. Pea coats tend to have a certain kind of 'look' associated with them.. one that can make the wearer look more juvenile than badass. However, this particular Brooks Brothers coat has become a favorite of mine. It's definitely got more of a Robert Redford vibe than anything else. If you are not familiar with the ladykiller effect of Redford back in the day, just trust me on this one, he was pretty cool. While it's a bit of an investment, this is the second year Clay has had it and it still looks fantastic. Thumbs up.
