I was looking for a jacket to break up all the black in this ensemble (I always fall into the easy red and black combo during the winter) when I found this gray blazer in my closet. It’s GAP from about three years ago, and it was one of the first quality blazers I ever bought myself (along with a coral blazer from Talbots and a tweed herringbone from Zara). I think the spring blazer adds just the right amount of light color into the dark wintery vibe. The details on this J.Crew top are gorgeous, but it was so cold I just couldn’t bring myself to take my blazer off! For real though, I almost bought it in every color because it is the perfect top for layering in the winter or by itself during the summer!

On days when my creative energy just isn’t there, I always reach for the same staples. This fall, they’ve been an oversized scarf and glasses paired with my favorite peep-toe booties and folder clutch. Throw these three items in and they can elevate even the simplest of outfits to the next level year round. My other go-to styling trick is usually a graphic tee layered under a denim or leather jacket. I can remember my mom teaching me about layering when I was eight years old, and the same trick still applies sixteen years later- layers make any outfit look better.

Thanks for stopping by!
The bad news is we got more snow last night. But the good news is that spring is only three weeks away! For all of you who live in warmer weather climates, I would like to reiterate how envious I am of your living situation at least one more time. I was so cold while I took these pictures, but I really wanted to give this sweater proper attention at this exact moment because it is suitable for all weather climates. Whether you’re already transitioning into springtime or still have a few more weeks of winter, this fun neon sweater can be the perfect way to gear up for warmer weather or simply brighten up a drab winter day. Also: pockets.
It’s now super on sale in stores and online, but definitely worth popping into a LOFT store to check it out if you have a spare minute because when I was in there a couple weeks ago they had a ton of items in this fun coral shade!
