Coats and Long Cardis have been my absolute go to and shopping favorite this season – I just can’t get enough! The long cardigans are so cozy to wear; I live in them working from home. It’s the time of the winter season where pieces are getting marked down and sizes are going fast too! Nordstrom is the queen of cashmere pieces this year and recently marked down this cream cardigan and this tan one – I could sleep in these. This gray marled cardigan looks so much like my Topshop one. I have my eye on this white cardigan, as it’s perfect to wear through spring. This BCBGMaxAzria patterned cardigan makes me feel like I should be in a mountain lodge with a pair of snow boots on. I can’t get enough of gray (under $30!) and camel sweaters this season either! For coats, I have had my eye on this neutral one for weeks and it just went on sale. This red coat is less than $65 – so tempting! I’ve never been a huge wearer of pink, but really into the blush trend lately. I’ve been searching all season for the perfect white coat and this one might be it! All of these pieces are on sale, with lots being under $100! Perfect time to stock up on some steals while the winter season is still going strong (it’s snowing again as I type..) Happy Friday!
Here’s a little secret, Valentine’s Day is my least favorite holiday – it always has been. #grinch. I’ve tried to like it every year, but just can’t – if you have someone special in your life, you should celebrate that love every day. Either way, I unintentionally styled this outfit this past weekend after realizing it would make the perfect outfit for a Valentine’s Night date. This blush blazer has been hanging in my closet for months (this exact one sold out but is available in other colors) and I finally pulled it out! I layered it over this basic v-neck sweater and popped on my favorite leopard pumps. Such an easy look and with a sweater underneath you’re nice and warm. This is another piece I’ll be transitioning into spring with, pairing with a light cami and distressed denim (similar to this look). See more of my favorite blush pieces in yesterday’s post, packing for warmer weather!
Next week at this time I’ll be packing up for a little weekend getaway for a friend’s wedding in Florida – to say I’m excited to escape the freezing cold & snow is an understatement! I’ve been putting off thinking of what to put in my suitcase, since it’s hard to imagine being in sandals and breezy dresses when it’s a solid 10 degrees outside. I decided I’ll stick with easy pieces, like this Joy Han dress I have yet to wear and my favorite lace up sandals (seen here). I’ll also be packing a floppy hat to prevent an untimely sunburn along with a lightweight scarf for when it cools down a bit at night. I love this white crop top + blush trouser combo for a dinner night out – I might pull my hair back and wear some sparkly earrings for a change too! I’m planning on getting a mani/pedi next week with this shade (ballet slippers, my go to) and might scoop up these new black sunnies for a little treat. If you’re in New England and were hit with snow the past few days, stay safe and warm – and dream of some warmer temperatures!
My style has always been on the simpler side, keeping to classics and pieces that aren’t too ‘fussy’. You won’t find many prints in my closet, a stripe or two here or there but that’s about it. I’ll buy other pieces outside of my everyday wear every now and then, and they just sit in my closet. I find that I reach for the simpler pieces that look great whether layered together or worn alone. This year, I decided to really hone in on my true style and only buy pieces that are classic and timeless, season after season. To kick this year’s style resolution off, I scooped up this long black tunic and a pair of creamy white denim (I suggest sizing down) from LOFT last week. I’ve already worn the tunic several times, layered under a jacket and fur vest. This denim will be perfect to transition into spring with, paired with grays and blues (two of my favorites for the season). I also grabbed these pointed booties, this sweater, this printed shirtdress, and this green shirtdress from LOFT. This fall and winter I realized I reach for simple shirt or sweater dresses to pair with boots and decided to stock my closet up! Right now, you can shop the entire LOFT website for 40% off!
We’re bracing for the season’s first blizzard here in New England, expecting 1-2 feet of snow! I went grocery shopping this weekend and stocked up on my healthy essentials: green juice, kombucha, fresh veggies and hummus (my favorite snack), and acai. I’m kind of excited for the snow, except for the fact that it brings such a mess afterwards! I’ve been looking for the perfect long black duster coat and finally found it over at Few Moda. Have you shopped there before? They’re a new to me retailer that’s based in New York, but I love their simple and timeless pieces. This coat is actually on sale for $169 now – it’s not too bulky, but is mostly wool so nice and warm. I also love this gray duster coat, these distressed jeans, and this light gray pencil skirt.
