My Secret for Winter Dressing

February 8, 2016

Skirt: J. Crew (unfortunately I couldn't find anything similar). Booties: Calvin Klein (similar). Clutch: Forever 21. Blazer: Nine West (similar). Turtleneck: Ann Taylor. Necklace: Loft (similar). 

When I'm feeling uninspired with putting together an outfit, like I often am in the winter, I have a go-to formula that makes it super easy. Black shoes + black tights + skirt + black top. Adding a jacket or sweater too is a great way to add more visual interest. I think the all black on bottom and the black on top pulls the look together, and makes it seem like you put more thought into it than you actually did. I can't say why exactly, but I only ever wear black shoes with black tights. I think it looks nice and sleek and elongates my legs. Here are some other examples of this formula in action: one//two//three

We had a really nice, relaxing weekend. The weather was beautiful so we walked to go get ice cream on Saturday, which felt like such a luxury in February. We saw a couple Oscar movies. And we hosted a little Super Bowl party at our apartment. It honestly wasn't anywhere near as crazy as I thought it would be since we live so close. That's a good thing though! We have more visitors coming this weekend, so it was nice to have a weekend in between to just hang out and do nothing. 

Hope you have a great start to your week!
