I’m not sure why someone thought it might be a good idea to wear the color “mustard”. Even though the color reminds me of different things – ’70s furniture, dirty yellow paint, or even things that come out of my dog, it still makes for a great colored sweater. Sorry, hope that didn’t gross you out. And with any bold colors, it’s usually a good idea to keep the rest of the outfit pretty simple – today with greys and blacks including these fun letter print tights!
If you’ve ever looked out your window and thought it was too cold to wear a dress in the winter, this dress may change your mind. This particular one from Banana Republic is one of their “fit and flare” dresses – looks flattering on almost everyone, has a good amount of stretch, and is incredibly warm due to it’s thick heavy duty (but not bulky) material. And even if you don’t get this one, check out my shopping links for more options!
A lot of geeky shirts can be loud, busy, and pretty attention getting. Don’t get me wrong, I love those crazy comic exclamations, characters, and fun prints. And as geeks, we do like to make a statement in our T-shirts! But sometimes it’s great to have a “casual” version of your favorite superhero shirt such as this faded Batman one. This particular one could easily be that favorite 15 year old T-shirt that has been washed so much that it’s about to fall apart. Plus the subtle black and white graphic will easily keep your identity a secret, right? ;)
There are some days where it barely feels like winter here. Most of my winter holiday was spent in LA where it was an unbelievable 75 degrees! And on those days, it’s fairly easy to take something I might wear in the summer (like this hi-lo skirt), add some tights, boots, and a jacket – and voila! Ready for winter wear! What warm weather pieces do you like to re-use for winter?
Winter can be cold and harsh and easily turn into a sea of black coats and grey sweaters. Though you may be in the mood to pull on that dark and drab sweater, wearing something bright and unexpected in the winter can really brighten those cold and gloomy days. Wishing you a warm and bright weekend!
Mickey sweatshirts, Star Wars hoodies, and Adventure Time leggings. I call these “kid clothes for adults”. With all this fun clothing available for adults these days, I feel like it’s easy to be a kid at heart. Sure, it’s a little embarrassing when that 10 year old standing next to you is wearing the same thing as you, but at least you both have the right idea.
For every major holiday there is a proportionally equivalent sale. Over the break, I’ve been doing what I do best – hunt for deals! And lately when I go shopping, I’ve practically been wearing a go-to uniform of a cute top, skirt, and cardigan. It’s not completely ideal for trying on pants, but for everything else, it’s a breeze. And to make it a bit more casual (and because I’m too lazy to do my hair while on holiday), why not throw on a beanie? Here’s to many great shopping finds in 2014! Happy New Year!
