So it’s mid-November, and the weather in Lawrence is finally starting to align with the Christmas music that has been playing in my car for the past few months. Minus June 25th and July 4th, I am SO biased to winter. Don’t get me wrong, I am a strong supporter of a good summer shift dress and my Jack Rodgers, but I won’t deny, I’m a sucker for anything that keeps me warm AND looks cute while doing it.
My winter wardrobe is pretty neutral in terms of color schemes. It seems as if the later in the year it gets, the more and more black I find myself pulling out of my closet. I think it’s the street style inspo of the super chic parkas I see all on my Pinterest feed this time of year that makes even walking to class something to feel powerful doing. (check this, this, and, this out for what I’m vibing off of!! Sooo makes me wanna trek the city ASAP!!) However, there will ALWAYS be that part of me that will never turn down a pop of color, or the hot pink J.Crew parka I’ve been lusting over since I set my eyes on it. So accessories are my go-to to add a cute signature piece of personality to an outfit. Especially when it’s freezing outside and the energy to put together an ensemble is more than lacking. I’ve put together a few pieces I think would be so fun:
I’d be lying if I said that mustard scarf hasn’t been in my cart on the J.Crew website for over a week now…Christmas present to myself? Over a month early? Using any justification I can here people.
Which one are you going to snag?
Stay warm (and look good doing it!), until next time, xoxo, Ally
