2019: CAR COATS + A SUGAR DETOX

           

Going back to work after 10-14 days off feels like an actual slap in the face. I don’t even know how to function normally. I don’t often sleep in, but over break, I slept well until 8:30-9a.m., and now I’m afraid I won’t be able to make my usual 6:15 a.m. wake up call. Someone help! Not to mention, the weather is expected to get a little chillier these next couple weeks, and I’m far from prepared for that. And while my typical OOTD on vacation consisted of leggings, no makeup, and a chunky sweater, I did try to spruce it up a bit, in an effort to feel more productive. One of my coziest and most put-together staples is this reversible camel and grey wool car coat. It IS everything. It’s not stiff or overbearingly heavy like your average wool coat. Instead, it is more like a more substantial cardigan with pockets and a more esteemed collar. It’s light enough to layer with chunky turtlenecks, sweaters, and the perfect flowy button-up like the one styled. Lately, I’ve been resorting to these suede block heels, but I recently purchased some low, neutral suede booties that will look equally as good, but a little more casual.

I’m thinking my first day back to the office tomorrow will consist of my stretchiest most acceptable pants, a loose tee, and the chunkiest/coziest knit I could find. Sounds good, right? Wish me luck as I head back to work, detox from sugar and try not to drink more than three cups of coffee in the first two hours of work.

Cheers to 2019! I haven’t made any resolutions yet. Thinking of setting some goals, though. TBD!

MY SPRING-WEAR SAVIOR

As you know, lately I’ve been working  tirelessly on organizing my spring wardrobe. While it has proven to be difficult with this uncooperative weather,  I think I’ve found the perfect transitional sweater. This Mixed Media pullover  from J. Jill is AMAZING and has the ability to combat the fickle weather since it’s lightweight AND cozy. The woven navy and white striped underlay makes it easy to achieve that “layered” look without the bulky hassle and sweat that comes with layering. I complemented it with a pair of light coral denim jeans that I scored at Marshall’s last spring (sorry guys!; a similar link is provided) and gave myself some height with these two-tone Jessica Simpson pumps.

Spring, I know you’re there, come on don’t be shy!

NEW ENGLAND DAZE

I mentioned that I was raised by New Englanders right? Well I was, one hailing from CT and the other from Rhode Island. Don’t get me wrong, New England is beautiful and it’s an amazing place to live, however I was lucky enough to grow up in the beautiful sassy state of New Jersey and I couldn’t be more proud of that. No, I don’t frequent Seaside nor do I have a bump it, in fact my adolescent summers were not typical for a Jersey Native. I grew up frequenting the CT shoreline, and while I envied my friends who were scanning the boardwalk, looking back, I wouldn’t trade my summers in CT for anything. I think about how much of an impact New England had on my style then, and laugh now at how much it has changed, but the timelessness and class that is New England will always remain in wardrobe selections.

This is yet another ode to my New England self, the one who wore Nantucket reds and could never find an excuse not to wear a navy blazer. This grey wool schoolboy blazer is an old J.Crew treasure of mine (I included a similar style above!) and I decided to pull out my winter whites before spring hits. I topped it off with a simple statement piece, purchased from a local favorite— Ladyfingers.  I don’t think you can go wrong with a white and grey combo, it’s classic and clean.
