I would like to use my first blog post in a month as an opportunity to thank hats and novelty sweaters for existing. Just when I think spring is here to stay, we get another bout of dreary weather. At least fun sweaters and hats keep outfits interesting and a little less gloomy.
Hats are having a moment, and thank goodness for that. They are the perfect accessory this time of year. They keep you warm and add make you feel a bit put together, especially on days when you’re decidedly not having a good hair day. (And really, you can have good hair days when it’s this windy and rainy?) This beret (which I found new-with-tags at And We Evolve), my newsboy cap and baseball caps have all been in heavy rotation this month.
Also remember when “critter sweaters” were a thing? (Clare had the best collection.) Sure, this isn’t the trendiest thing I’ve worn on the blog, but I’m still all about a graphic sweater. There’s a time and a place for fun and sass in the things we wear, don’t you think? At least these love birds remind me of warmer weather…which will hopefully stay here long enough that I can pack away these sweaters. 😉
Happy first day of spring! If you’ve checked the weather at all, you know that it is decidedly not springlike outside. Luckily, I got a taste of some of the greenery to come (eventually) during a trip to Terrain last weekend. Plants, brunch, girl talk — what else could you want? (Answer: warm weather.)
I wanted to dress up a bit for our day trip, but I also wanted to be comfortable. Inspiration struck, and I wore this dress (you may recognize as my NYE dress) as a top. Bell sleeves may be a tad impractical, but this trend has had some staying power — I snagged this dress from a Target clearance rack years ago. To keep up the seventies vibes, I wore my new button front jeans and newsboy cap. Aside from my Fossil bag (a graduation gift from many moons ago), this one of the most affordable outfits I’ve ever blogged. (You’d tell me if it’d look that way though, right?)
It looks like I’ll be wearing sweaters for a few more weeks, but I can’t wait to wear some of my more fun clothes this spring. Don’t be surprised if this isn’t the only seventies-inspired outfit I share on here!
While I love celebrating Galentine’s, it’s been a tradition for my friends and me before I ever watched Parks & Rec — margaritas and dancing are usually involved. 😉
Sisterhood is super important for me, and my female friendships are one of the things I treasure most about Philadelphia. As an adult, I’ve met most of my friends through work or blogging. The best though is when these friends become full-fledged IRL friends…and then get to meet each other.
Anyway, I wore this outfit to a blogger work session at United By Blue. I wanted to be comfy and cozy, but also a bit ~festive~. (It was also freezing, so practicality won out and I wore riding boots instead of ankle boots.) My love for maroon is well-documented (see here and here), but instead of pairing it with my usual black, I went for blush (or “millennial pink”). The crochet detail on the top adds a boho/romantic touch and pearl studs are classic. It’s still February though, so my cold-weather accessories aren’t going away anytime soon!
