Since I work from home and most of my meetings are pretty casual, denim is my go-to during the winter. I’ve always been a dress girl and used to always wear dresses with tights throughout the winter months (back when I had an office job), but I’ve admittedly gotten a bit more lax over the last year or so. Sure, I’ve worn dresses and tights for holiday parties the past few months, but I don’t have that many fall/winter dresses that work for everyday wear. (Note to self for shopping!)
I know I’ve previously mentioned how I don’t love pants, but I’m trying to break out of my mold a little bit. I recently picked up these Vineyard Vines wide leg pants knowing they’d be the perfect transitional pants from winter to spring! They’re a lighter-weight chambray material that will be perfect for upcoming warm-weather vacations (styled with a pair of cute slides!) and when spring rolls around in a few months, too.
I just recently got this Packed Party Doorstep Necklace and I’ve been wearing it non-stop! It took me *forever* to decide on what numbers to engrave, but I finally decided to go with the house I grew up in. Since I’ve moved around so much post-college (my first Chicago apartment, three apartments in New York City, and my current apartment in Chicago), there were a lot of different number contenders! But I went with the place I lived the longest… The house I grew up in in my hometown.
For winter wear, I styled the ankle-length pants with a pair of pointed pumps, a cozy turtleneck, and a few warm accessories. I kept the color palette nice and neutral with blues, browns, and creams. I’ve been gravitating towards a lot of black and grey outfits lately, so this felt nice and refreshing for the new year! It’s been pretty milk in Chicago so far this week (which is why I could get away with these pants!), but it’s back to feeling like -2 today. Repeat after me…. 74 days until Spring!
