SPRING IN THE MIX

Lately, I feel like I have NOTHING to wear. I know that sounds crazy, especially if you take a look at my closet(s), but I think I’m in a style rut. It definitely has to do with the cold weather and I know it’ll pass but it’s really throwing me off. In an effort to get out of this wardrobe funk I pulled out a spring favorite of mine. This longline open-front Forever 21 jacket was a staple for me last spring so I decided to bring it back to life during these cold winter months. It’s a great layering piece and it’s light enough to wear under my clunky winter coat. There’s no better color combo than black and tan, which is why I resorted to my trusted black turtleneck as its counterpart. Honestly, you’d be surprised by how many spring pieces you can convert to winter. I still think I should go shopping…just to be on the safe side!

I am so sick of this cold weather, it’s really cramping my style, I started thinking– maybe if I start wearing skirts more often it would summon the warmer weather? Wishful thinking? Yea, I know it’s crazy but it doesn’t hurt. So today, I’m ignoring the cold and shedding light on one of my faves– this gold monogram shine box pleat skirt from Banana. It’s best to pair it with a more subtle top since the skirt deserves everyone’s eyes. I’m a sucker for comfort, so I went with my cozy black turtleneck–the contrast of the black and gold gives the skirt the attention it deserves. While this is a more classic look, you can get a little less conventional and pair it with a chambray shirt and some black booties. Don’t be afraid to get creative, just remember to keep it simple.

I didn’t realize how much love I had for Banana until I started blogging, but their petite section is everything– pants and skirts now look normal on me– no more cuff rolling or skirt hiking. Ahhh! all this talk about Banana is making me want to shop–if you need me I’ll be getting after these President’s Day sales.

Happy three day weekend lovelies!
