Happy Monday! How was everyone’s weekend?
I feel so much more relaxed going into this week than last. It doesn’t seem nearly as chaotic or like I’m chasing my tail trying to keep up. I was able to get caught up (mostly) on work over the weekend and enjoyed some down time with the family. We finally took down the Christmas decorations and I am happy to have what now felt like clutter stored away!
Zain is feeling much better from the ear infection but had to get his second flu shot on Saturday so we felt awful. I guess it’s always something with kids, right?
On to today’s post! Ahh, looking chic in winter. Not an easy task. Although this outfit was shot back when it was acceptable to show your ankles it still follows some of my basic principles when it comes to styling you wardrobe in the winter.
Don’t Add Too Many Layers
Although it’s freezing and you can barely feel your face, invest in some chic and oversized sweaters to keep you warm under your puffer. When you start layering too many pieces it can be overwhelming not to mention once you get inside somewhere you will probably sweat your weight out.
Add Texture To The Top Of Your Outfit Not The Bottom
I know that embroidered jeans are ‘in style’ but I’m curvier on the bottom and adding texture to my pants never looks good. I think adding texture is a fun way to make a boring outfit chic but stick to the top! I must say I wasn’t sure I was a fan of sweaters with ruffles (still not into the ones with the giant ties on the sleeves. what is that about?!) but I loved this sweater on. I think the ruffles are in a great location and makes a staple grey sweater much more exciting!
Add Fun Shoes
As a girl who mostly sticks to neutrals, especially with shoes I was torn on these when I ordered them. I loveeeee my Everlane loafers and wanted to make sure if I was investing in a new pair that they were uber comfortable and able to be worn a lot. I took weeks to make up my mind but I’m really glad I kept these. I have started wearing them like a neutral and find that they go with everything and anything. The shoe is also insanely comfortable and comes in about a million textures and colors. Order TTS and thank me later!
Are you into the ruffle sweater trend?
