Edgy and Eccentric statement necklace, Gap Tee, Forever21 Skirt, Kate Spade New York Jenny Bag, as featured on House Of Jeffers |

Although I wouldn't describe my style as traditional in any sense, I do love classic elements in fashion that are timeless pieces a part of many women's wardrobes. Stripes are probably high up on the list, and of course,  a black and white combo is traditional as it get. But since my edgier and eccentric side always makes their way it an outfit, I do see myself trying to experiment with pieces that appeal to other women... but perhaps, I really did not want to wear.

Hey, I'm being honest.

So, in an attempt to think outside of the box, I figured it was time for me to buy a pair of heels.

No, I do not wear simple heels.

I always felt like I looked like the Kebler Elf in them, and besides for the obvious factors of the shoes probably being uncomfortable to walk in and even more terrible to wear all day, I figured "not for me". However, when I bought this amazing ball-gown inspired skirt, it was meant for something different. Normally, wedges would be a go-to (which I still fully support wearing), but the uber feminine aspect of the skirt, and the gorgeous Kate Spade Jenny Bag, needed a shoe with an Audrey Hepburn-esque nod to it. 

Hence, a simple and classic pointed heel.

Not bad for a pair of $24 shoes bought at Forever 21. Honestly, they did not kill my feet, were comfortable and not too high - which I think is what was turning me away from heels in the first place. I have no desire to be one of those girls who can't walk in their shoes. But, for my first pair of "big girl" shoes, surprisingly, they grew on me.

A Hop, Skip and Jump

Hello loves! I am so happy to be back to blogging! I've missed writing, blogging, interacting with you and creating new outfits for House Of Jeffers. Don't get me wrong - my life is still crazy and hectic, but I'm hoping to be back into blogging and post at least once a week!

So let's jump right into it. (Get it... Um, okay).

Never one to shy away from plaid, I own way too many button up shirts. No, seriously. Every other day I wear them to work, and of course, they are probably plaid. Instead of just putting together a plaid shirt and pants combo, I like to layer since a). I'm constantly cold b.) It gives me an excuse to wear a skirt and c.) I get more use of out the clothes I can't always wear by opting to layer up.


This outfit is especially cozy since the tights are fleece, I'm able to wear a plaid shirt and leather jacket with knit details to keep warm, and the oxfords are my solution to not wearing heels, but still feeling dressed up. This was an outfit I wore to brunch with my husband and sons. While there's a lot of black in this look (Gee, me, wear a lot of black?), I love the pops of gold from my shoes, the hardware on my Kate Spade Bag and the sick Olivia Palermo x Bauble Bar Crystal Quartz Necklace. 

Take a moment to drool over the necklace... I'll wait.

When you those days when the weather is crappy, and you have no clue what to wear, I say go for plaid. Its bright, the pattern offers enough variation to bring contrast to your look... and it is quintessentially winter-esque!
