It’s hard for me to get dressed this time of year. I’m tired of all the clothes I was so excited to wear back in the fall. Plus, it’s so cold and grey. The only thing I feel like putting on each morning is sweatpants and a hoodie. Of course, I can’t really do that. My office is fairly casual, but my stretchy yoga gear would be pushing the limits.
While I am lacking any real fashion inspiration, I’ve been looking for some classic pieces to carry me though the last dregs of winter. I always feel most put together when I wear the basics, and I need to feel as good as I can right now. I’m always so emotionally fragile during the month of February.
Here are a few things I’ve picked up lately:
This thrifted Bloomingdales branded cashmere sweater makes me think of Coco Chanel, and with that you can never go wrong.
Somewhere between the store and our laundry room, I lost the bottom button. My fingers are crossed that I can find a replacement.
Gold plated knot earrings (also second hand).
I splurged on these Nine West pumps. I love the little touch of animal print.
I’d been stalking them for months before Christmas and finally bought them with the help of a gift card. They’re surprisingly comfortable and the perfect heel height.
