A Wool Poncho for Layering in Cold Weather

jcrew wool poncho in greyThrowing a wool poncho over a chunky sweater is a chic way to keep warm during cold days. I’m a big fan of layering. First, you can create new looks out of things you have in your closet anyways, and second, I love to pay with textures.

Denim Shorts

Denim Shorts and Chloe Marcie bagWhen you’re a mom, some days (especially on days you’re out and about with your little ones), all you want to do is to be comfortable. That is where my go-to denim shorts fit in. Personally, I think they are pretty cool and don’t scream “mommy”, and the fact that they are comfortable is a happy bonus. Distressed and with a raw hem, these are by far my favorite denim shorts. And they make me feel good. Isn’t that what dressing is all about? Feeling good about what you wear?

Off Shoulder Shirt

off the shoulder topI really like the off-the-shoulder trend, but for some reason I was not able to find an off the shoulder top that worked for me. I had decided that I needed one even as the snow was still melting, but was not able to find one that suited me until a few weeks ago. It was beginning to look like I would have to pass on the trend this summer and had all but given up on the whole quest.

The Return of Wide Pants

Wide pantsOne undeniable truth about fashion is that nothing lasts forever. And while I love skinny jeans more than anyone I know, I’m so happy about the return of wide pants. These pants are so liberating.

Mixed Media

mixed mediaPlay up your minimalist wardrobe by layering textures and mixing patterns. Texture adds interest without having to add more pieces to your outfit. I love how the stripes and salt-and-pepper texture of the coat work together in an unexpected way. I’m a big fan of stripes and find them super versatile, and a perfect fit for the blacks, whites and greys in my minimalist closet. So coming up with new ways to wear stripes is always exciting to me.

Can we also talk about transitional shoes? It’s so hard to find shoes for transitional weather. There is definitely a lack of footwear out there that sits between boots and sandals, and works in the rain. Until I found the shoes I’m wearing in this post, I had a very difficult time dressing for rainy days. I either wore flats, which didn’t do much for me in the rain, or boots, which kind of got old after months of wearing boots during the winter anyways. So I’m happy to finally have found casual heels to wear with jeans.
