Current Obession: Outerwear

Outerwear Love

If you could create a chart of how much I need jackets, coats and winter clothing items and how much I want them, you would clearly see that they don’t mesh. My need of outerwear is so little in Southern California, yet I can’t help but dream of cold weather and of purchasing some jackets guilt-free.

But unless I win the lottery soon (my luck could be changing, I recently won…wait for it…$15 on a scratcher), I won’t be purchasing any jackets or coats soon. Not really worth the investment (or at least that’s what the adult part of my brain has to tell my impulsive side to curb any “unnecessary” shopping).

But a girl can dream right? Dream of leather, shearling and wide lapels. Some of the style’s I’m currently obsessing over above.

Current Obsession: Winter Prints and Patterns

Winter Patterns

 

Here in Southern California we are #blessed (read in J.T. and Jimmy Fallon voice) with great weather. Snow never falls and rain can’t always be counted on. With all this great weather abound, sometimes it’s hard to get in the holiday spirit. My “solution” to this non-problem is a healthy dose of denial and seasonal prints and patterns. Let’s pretend it’s colder than it is, and wear some plaid!

I posted some examples above that I’m currently daydreaming about. The great thing about these are that they look great with any basic top or bottom…no need to overthink. A basic pair of jeans, or a white tee are all you need to fool everyone into thinking you’re super cool and chic. Isn’t that what’s really important?

I shall be on the hunt for more of these (already have a few tops…two dresses and some scarves) in between Christmas shopping….which always starts out with the bestest of intentions and usually ends with me feeling guilty over buying myself gifts. Wish me luck!

Current Obsession: Midi Skirts

Can you call something an obsession that you’ve only recently discovered you like? No, probably not but that won’t stop me. So I’m declaring it here…my new favorite fall/winter style obsession is the midi skirt. Way past a mini skirt but not quite full-length – the midi skirt is the perfect compromise.

I recently purchased a body con style midi skirt in basic black, and have quickly fallen in love. Is that an overstatement? Sure, but the truth is the truth. The thing that’s great about them is that they’re grown-up but don’t have to be dowdy. I feel like in the past I thought of this length skirt as an old lady staple. But with an updated top, it really works. Best of all? It’s super forgiving and comfortable.

Some options below:

Midi SkirtsIt’s a great look for work but can be fun for the weekends/post-work, especially if your the fit is snug or if your top is a on the tighter side.

Here’s the last thing I’ll say it makes me feel grown up and put together with very little effort. Isn’t that the best selling point? I think so!
