Last Minute Winter

Coat: Nordstrom (Sold Out) | Jeans: AG | Top: Forever | Hat: Nordstrom (Similar Here) | Boots: Boutique 9 (Old, Similar Here) | Scarf: Nordstrom | Glasses: Ray Ban |

This week, I tried to show PRACTICAL outfits. While I would love to live in a warm climate, that's just not the case for me. I can't frolic around with bare legs, no coat and little heels. At least until spring, we should try to get the most out of what's in our closet, because once spring and summer arrive, we will be saying "bye bye" to some of those favorite winter items.

While I've mostly been in Sorel boots to fight the cold and snow, I decided to pull a pair of leather boots out that I haven't seen in a while. I added a pop of color with this great wrap/scarf that my fiance got  me for Christmas this year.

Dust off some items in your closet and pull them out before it's too late! What are some of your last minute winter wears?

Barn Red

Jacket: BB Dakota | Shirt: J Crew | Jeans: Gap | Boots: Nordstrom

Despite the bitter cold temperatures and lots of snow this winter, we have had a surprising amount of sunshine. I took advantage of it, and enjoyed an outdoor shoot this weekend.

I love the simple look of a denim shirt and leather jacket. I recently purchased this great faux leather jacket from BB Dakota. It's the only one that I own that is actually a color, and I have already worn it with a bunch of different outfits!

What are your favorite layering pieces?

Hope everyone's having a great week!

{Dress: Forever, Boots: Vince Camuto, Jacket: BCBG (old)}

Lately, since I'm bored with winter, I've been experimenting with what's already in my closet. I find I try to get the most out of all my clothes, and don't limit them to the season when they were purchased. I bought this great dress in the summer, and haven't had a chance to wear it. Sometimes, simply adding a pair of tights to a summery dress can carry it to a different season.

Hope everyone's having a great week!

Chunky Knits

{Sweater: Forever 21, Jeans: J Brand, Boots: Sam Edelman, Watch: MK}

I am starting to get really sick of winter. Unfortunately for me, I think the cold season is going to stick around for a bit longer. I found this really cute chunky knit sweater at Forever. I have worn it more times than I thought I would. I like that it works with both blacks and browns. Versatile and contemporary!

What are some of your favorite chunky knit looks?

A Grey Day

{Sweater: Nordstrom now SALE, Skirt: Nordstrom now SALE, Ring: Catbird, Watch MK, Necklace: Francescas}

I wear black and grey more than I probably should. I find that I get much more wear out of my neutral clothes than my colorful clothes. It's just me, and I've found what works.

I encourage you to find a palette of colors that work for you. For me it's shades of black, brown, blue, grey and green.  Today, I was feeling grey- mostly to emulate the winter that we've had here.

I had been looking for the perfect faux leather skirt on a budget (that didn't look cheap) for a while, and was so happy to find this one from Nordstrom. 

Give this look a try!

A Neutral Winter & Quick Manicure

This winter has been anything but desirable. For us, it's been snow, cold, snow and more snow. It's been impossible to stay warm, let alone worry about how to keep skin hydrated and nails manicured.

Finally, I discovered a new skincare line called Malin + Goetz. I use the neroli hand + body moisturizer. I bought it for the first time yesterday and already my hands are more hydrated than they've been in months.

I rarely ever get my nails done at a salon, so this post is dedicated to a home-manicure. It's simple, just cut your nails, use some cuticle cream, hydrate your hands and paint!

I used OPI's My Very First Knockwurst from OPI's Germany Collection. 

I am coveting neutral nails right now, and love the clean classic look.
