Brightening Up Monday Blues

Happy Monday! I don’t know about all of you, but I am not Monday’s biggest fan. However, I feel that Mondays can often set the tone for the entire week so I’ve been trying especially hard lately to make Monday more enjoyable. For me, this usually means getting to the gym, being productive with work, and looking nice (vs wearing yoga pants and a hoodie, which I’m guilty of). This week I chose a colorful, fun, fall ensemble to kick off the week.

Shawl/: American Eagle // Tshirt: American Eagle // Jeans: American Eagle // Shoes: Forever 21 (Sorry, too old to find online!) // Bracelet: Tory Burch // Necklace: Etsy

I’m just slightly obsessed with this outfit; and by obsessed I mean I’m washing this ASAP so I can wear it again! This outfit is basically sponsored by American Eagle, but with my own indie-bohemian twist. To me, the two pieces that make this outfit are: the shawl (obviously) and the shoes!

This shawl is REDICULOUSLY COMFORTABLE. and warm. Plus, it looks amazing on! I’m a huge sweater gal, but this shawl offers all the coziness of your favorite sweater but also makes it appear that you put in twice the effort. Also, we all need some cheery bright hues on gloomy mondays.

The shoes really stand out when the boyfriend jeans are rolled up a little bit so that the entire shoe can be seen. They have this cool vintage texture that adds to the “cool” “boyfriend” look.

Lastly, this monogrammed necklace is my go-to accessory for any outfit. Seriously, I don’t know what I’d do without. It matches everything and, as you see, it’s beautiful! I highly recommend every girl investing in a monogrammed necklace, they don’t have to be expensive! If you feel like splurging though, they are so worth it!
