Lately I am crushing hard on army green and blush pink. I am trying to limit how much of it I add to my closet, but it’s not easy. That and white! My husband has a joke that I have 25 of the exact same white lace dresses (which is not, not true…), but what I can say, I like what I like. Haha!
Anyway! I am fully embracing and LOVING shopping for fall and winter clothing this year. It’s so fun. In the past I’ve always been more of a spring/summer fan, but I’m trying to stretch myself and learn to really celebrate all the seasons (even winter after Christmas is over—aka THE WORST). I want to be more well rounded and find cute go-to, easy outfits for every season. This outfit definitely fits the bill because I’ve worn it seriously five or six times this month. On repeat. And if it does actually get cold this year (which of course it will at some point), I can always add tights.
If you have tips and tricks for easy outfits that feel cute and more polished than a t-shirt and jeans (or yoga pants if I’m being honest—haha!), please share them with me in the comments!
And a couple more shots we took with this cute bag from Fossil. Ugh—it’s so adorable.
OK—take it away, sister!
Yes, I am all for hearing your tips! For me, I’m working on finding ways to take pieces I loved during the warmer months and transitioning some of them to this colder season. For example, you can see me wearing this army green dress back in late August when I didn’t need any layers at all! I love the fit and structure of the dress, so I’ve tried it out with a few layers. And although I like it a bit more in the summer (sandal season—my favorite!), I like finding ways to transition pieces to other seasons. Elsie and I grew up and still live in areas that have all four seasons, so finding ways to transition some pieces is always nice.
But I must admit, this year has been unseasonably warm—I won’t mind if that trend continues. I’m praying for one day of snow on Christmas Eve and then for spring to start on January 2nd. Dare to dream! 🙂
