It has actually started to rain here and boy do we need it. It’s always harder for me to get dressed in this kind of weather because all I can think about is staying warm and dry. For years, Fall/Winter clothes were all about utility to me. Over the past few years I have made a little more effort to include a style element. This blanket scarf from Target is great for injecting a little bit of color and it worked well to protect me from the light rain.
I love these Steve Madden Troopa-2 boots, they’re super comfortable and come in four great colors. You’ll be seeing these quite a bit this during the cold and wet months. I love over-sized sweaters because they are super comfy, while I do appreciate a tailored/fitted look, I have to admit, it is a little more work making sure everything stays in place and when I’m running errands I just want things to be easy.
We’ve had such a strange start to Fall this year, I am way behind on preparing for the season. Now I most certainly don’t buy a whole new wardrobe each season but I do try to add key pieces to enhance what I already have as I find that just a few new pieces can refresh your whole wardrobe. Because the weather had regularly been in the mid-70’s and even as high as the 90’s you can gather that oversized sweaters, ponchos, cardigans and coats have not been high on my priority list BUT the other day I was in Target and saw this printed hooded poncho sweater (wow! That’s a mouthful betcha can’t say that five times fast) and I had to have it and it was a steal at 40% off.
The jeans are Old Navy mid-rise Rockstar jeans which I love because I dot have to pull them up all day or be worried about flashing people like I do with low-rise pants and the boots are Bandolino.
This holiday season was amazing and was a great reflection of how fantastic 2014 was and the great relationships, just how much my hard work this year is paying off, which is great because sometimes while you’re in the thick of it, progress is hard to see and just how fast my kids are growing up which is bitter sweet. While on break I had the pleasure of meeting up with Portia of Posh by Portia and her crew for lunch and laughs. I don’t often take the time to just relax so it was so nice and any time I get to see her beautiful boys it’s a win!
Notice we’re both rocking our Mimi G Cocoon Sweaters. This is version two for me and I’ve already made two more and have two more planned. This is the perfect layering piece and gives any outfit an instant upgrade.
Look at all this cuteness!
We kept getting hit by the cutest little photobomber and he was always posed and ready for the shot.
I’ve already reviewed the cocoon sweater here and definitely recommend it. It’s easy as pie to make and amazing to wear.
I’ve been waiting for a chill in the air so I could wear this cocoon sweater. I LOVE this sweater. It’s one of my F21 finds that I have held onto for months. I paired it with this white mock turtle neck, cropped deconstructed jeans and boots which by the way is a great way to continue to wear your cropped jeans all year round because they come just to the top of my boots.
This is one of my favorite pieces for Fall and I’ll be looking to grab or make another.
