I know it can be dull to start every outfit post with a weather update, but I’ll defend it — after all, if you’re practical, the weather can play a big part in how you dress. So with this bizarre warm winter we’ve been having, I’ve been wanting to dress for spring. That’s where this cardigan, which was actually part of LOFT’s fall collection, comes in.
I mean… are the colors not perfect? The cardigan is super warm and cozy, so it’s perfect for those warm winter days when I don’t want to rely on a peacoat yet again. Now if only I could keep my chambray from wrinkling. No judgment zone, right?
My mornings get so hectic with the dogs and trying to make breakfast and/or lunch that I’m starting to accessorize with just one or two pieces. I love my wrap bracelet from Victoria Emerson — once I figured out how to put it on (it’s adjustable), it makes a big impact. When they asked me to collaborate, I had the hardest time choosing just one bracelet — I considered this one and this one, but I ended up choosing this cool skull bracelet! (I was obviously in a ~serenity~ type of mood.)
I used to be obsessed with Pirates of the Caribbean, so I just tell myself this is a more grownup way of showing off my fandom. (And maybe adding some edge? Just kidding… I am so not edgy!) I expected the bracelet to be distracting when I’m on the computer at work, so I was pleasantly surprised when this was not the case. It’s definitely less annoying than typing with bangles!
