Blank nyc jacket (option, option); Free People sweater (on sale!); Rebecca Minkoff bag; Old Navy jeans; ℅ Ted and Muffy boots (option), similar Target fingerless gloves and hat.
I’m in the winter doldrum’s over here, where it’s obviously still cold and snowy, yet all I want to do is pin Spring looks on Pinterest and look at beach vacation pictures. I find that I have zero interest in wearing anything of interest at all, because darn it! It’s cold and snowy and dreary. I’m tired of wearing heavy boots and jackets and making any effort seems overwhelming. My solution? FInd an outfit that works and basically wear it to DEATH. Life changing advice, no? 😉
Let’s break down the look that is working for me right this very second (and one I wear about three days a week), shall we?
1) The jacket I am loving right now is my faux leather Blank nyc one. I can’t wear it if it is TOO cold, but with temps in the 30’s it is entirely doable over a sweater if I’m walking from the car to wherever I’m heading. I linked a couple of great options below, I love the quality of this one and the edgy look of it. I have a similar burgundy one that I adore, and I’m eyeing this caramel colored one for Spring.
2) I love a cozy and slightly oversized sweater this time of year. Free People makes the best ones, in my opinion, and a lot of them are on sale right now. I have this cold shoulder version in two colors (blue and cream), as well as this soft and slouchy one in two colors (blush and black) as well that I wear ALL the time.
3) I think ripped skinny jeans are where it’s at, and Old Navy always has awesome, well priced ones. I like the newer Rockstar fit that has a higher rise. I have a black pair and a dark denim pair that I wear almost exclusively, and an older gray pair that I’ve had for a couple of years that I adore. I love how a pair of skinny jeans looks with a longer, tunic length sweater, plus it’s super comfortable! (My favorite style word…)
4) Finally, the accessories are really where it is at. I have two pairs of Sam Edelman booties (tan and black fringe) that I think look great with every single outfit. I am dying to get the leopard pair that look pretty similar to the ones above, but have a lower heel. I tend to get ballsy and wear these without socks no matter what the temps, so having a flash of ankle in sub freezing temps is not that abnormal for me;)
I also have a crazy collection of knit hats and a couple of pairs of fingerless gloves that make me feel a bit more happening than I ever am. The same goes for my birthday splurge quilted Rebecca Minkoff cross body bag. There is something about a quality bag that instantly elevates any outfit.
Tell me, what is your winter uniform?
