Winter Essentials

I don’t like the cold weather, I don’t like the rain and I REALLY don’t like the snow. I rather be basking in 79 degrees all year long. The only thing I do love in those cold Winter months are the accessories. So many different coats, hats, ear muffs, scarves and gloves.  Every day is an adventure full of texture and warm textile.

Here are my ideas for the upcoming Winter months in black, gray/neutral and blue

Stay warm and cozy because the polar vortex is on the horizon…

All ALL ALL

The Perfect Wardrobe

Isn’t having a perfect wardrobe (like a closet taken from a movie set) something we all want? A beautiful glossy all white and full of designer handbags and shoes? Well, although it’s nice to have, that is not my idea of a “perfect wardrobe”.

I think that the perfect wardrobe has good quality items that you love to wear over and over again. It’s limited to clothes and shoes that work with every trend. It is curated with bullet proof looks that make me feel amazing every single time. That perfect wardrobe is not easy to build! One way to start: THINK before you buy and always edit what you have. It’s also important to try to predict if a trend is here to stay or if it is a one-in-a-season-kind-of-a-trend (like camouflage!).

The outfit below is the perfect example: the scarf is 6 years old, the shoes are 3 years old, the bag and jacket are 1 year old, and the black T underneath – I can’t even remember. The only new item are my maternity jeans purchased at H&M.

Shades of Gray

I love the first  days of September. The breeze is starting to pick up and the sun is still out, but the days are cooler and big sweaters come to mind. So, naturally, it’s time for some Fall inspiration…

I LOVE gray. There is something about that color that attracts me no matter the season or the occasion. It always looks good with every color, and the fabrics just have depths to them that makes every outfit extraordinary. Naturally, during the Fall and Winter months it seems as if I’m wearing a uniform…but, I just can’t get enough!

The items below are all fresh for Fall from my “usual suspects” and new friends that I would like to own. Take a look at the links below for where to buy.

Happy Fall!

Winter Additions

By now, Winter is in full throttle, and it’s time to wrap up this season’s shopping. Now before I start working on my Spring/Summer wardrobe, I want to share with you the latest additions to my closet. Unlike at the beginning of the season when I search and shop from my “Must Have” list, these buys are a bit more random – if I like it, I buy it!

All of the items below have become my favorites, go-to items during these cold winter months. They are comfy, timeless and fun. I wear them day and night, dress them up and down. All of them were great buys.

What are your favorite items for winter?
