I have a love of sweaters that runs so great that I don’t even have a need for them to be functional anymore. This sweater does nothing to keep me warm in this emerging winter cold and I decided to continue the trend of non-winter-functional pieces by layering it over top of this pastel, floral sleeveless button-down. I’m on this new kick of pulling my summer pieced into winter wear because I like a challenge (read: my wardrobe is not as expansive as I wish it was). Don’t limit your clothes to the season friends. Mix and match to your heart’s content. Live your dreams.
I may be dressed in what I think is passable as early spring wear but it is undoubtedly winter where I’m at. In fact, I’ve actually just received my first serious snowfall of the winter (which is sad since winter ends in about two weeks) and have consequently been out of school for the past two days. This has left me with many opportunities to snuggle up into cozy cardigans, watch TV (is anyone else excited that we’re rolling into the new season of Bates Motel), look up spring makeup trends (The Frenemy has come in handy for that venture) and pretend to be studying for school. So, in the spirit of my new found I have to bum out and do absolutely nothing of importance, feel free to recommend your favorite TV shows in the comments and I’ll check them out!
I’ve finally conceded to the fact that I’m going to have to start taking photos inside while the weather outside is being all crazy. I’m currently living in my own winter wonderland but instead of being surrounded by snow, there’s ice everywhere. In the meantime I’ve just been hanging out at my house, drinking caramel hot cocoa and reacquainting myself with every sweater I’ve ever purchased. On the bright side, I have discovered a new found anime love in Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) and am currently marathon watching every episode. If you haven’t seen it and you aren’t opposed to some onscreen violence (it gets kind of gore-y at times), I definitely recommend it. It’s great and better than I expected and I’m about to go watch some more episodes as soon as this is posted! 🙂
I get the feeling that I’m going to spend the rest of my life yearning to be one of those people who can dress appropriately for all four seasons. I can do “seasonal” outfits (hence, why I own a red blazer with black sequin lapels-for the “Christmas season”) and I can dress for spring and fall, but when it comes to dressing for the season I’m in every single day, my mind goes blank. And that, my friends, is why I’m wearing a pumpkin colored cardigan in January. It’s so sad how much I can genuinely appreciate a season and all of the clothes that go with it, but only be able to dress in the fashions of the one before it. It must be all the leaves in my yard influencing my outfit.
Gah! I apologize for the blurriness of these photos. It was incredibly windy outside when these were taken (my gutter got blown off my roof and is now chillin’ in my front yard along with the lid to my neighbor’s trash can) so I had to have my dad do it for me. As you can probably tell, he doesn’t have the world’s steadiest hands (though I suppose shivering can do that to you.) On the bright side, it actually began to snow last night! It didn’t stick and now it’s quite sunny, but it was fun while it lasted. Good job mother nature!
It’s almost winter! Okay, that’s a bit of a lie, but I’m feeling really inspired for the winter season, leading to these lovely outfits down here. As you can probably tell, I’m one of those people who like to wear dresses and skirts year round (my shins are the only part of my legs that really get cold and I have a passionate love for tights), but floral jeans deserve much respect for bringing some spring flare into freezing temperatures. Enjoy! 🙂
