Happy Monday & MLK Day, readers! The blog is back to regularly scheduled programing this week and I’m so excited about it! I’ve been working so hard at putting my 2017 goals into action and getting off to a good start in the New Year so that I can better focus on this blog of mine! So let’s start things back off again with an outfit post – shot when we were on vacation at Mt. Hood!
It’s probably no secret, but I love pops of color! However, I often struggle with my love of color during the cold winter months simply because it’s often harder to find bright sweaters in a sea of cozy neutrals. Now don’t get me wrong, I love those too! I could wear grey, white, and black with pops of color every day! But it often feels like I have two closets: neutrals for fall/winter and bright colors for spring/summer. Anyone else feel this way?
Well this year I was determined to change that. I went for it with a pink Christmas and was on the hunt for some especially bright-colored finds to throw into my muted mix! This time last year, I scored this mint blue coat from J.Crew on super-clearance and I’m SO glad I did! I honestly have worn this coat from the second the weather turned and have no plans of stopping until springtime. I love that it’s a color that can still work for the holidays, but then carry me through when I’m craving spring fashion but it’s still cold out! Sadly, this exact coat isn’t available again this year… but there are SO many other good options for you to snag on clearance at J.Crew and J.Crew Factory! (these links take you right to clearance outerwear!) If you’re at all thinking you could use an outerwear refresh, wanted a J.Crew coat for Christmas but weren’t willing to pay full price, or are even just thinking of investing in something with more color that will carry you into spring… this is the time to purchase!
And wait… let’s talk bright-colored sweaters real quick! I grabbed this magenta gem at Old Navy over the holidays and I love it (so much so that I bought it in another color and you’ll see it styled differently here next week 😉)! It sold out so quickly, but there are so many good sweater options on sale right now – and so many good colors to choose from! I always can’t say enough good things about my love for Old Navy, especially their sweaters! So if you’re in the need of a fresh pop of color, I highly recommend snagging ’em up at those low prices!
My new monogram necklace (currently 25% off!) was my Christmas gift from my husband 😍 and let me just disclaim this now: you’ll like see me wearing it in nearly every blog post from here on out because I love it so much! And the boots? They’re old, but I’m sill quite obsessed. If you’re needing a classic and warm snow boot that will last – Sorels are the definite choice! And if you wanted to, you could swap out the laces in the classic options to get that pop of pink! ☺️
Sam and I are off to enjoy the holiday with a hike and then going to see La La Land! Fun (and embarrassing) fact: we’ve seen a grand total of ONE movie together… EVER. So we decided to finally go see what everyone is talking about and I’m so excited! I also love to gorge myself on a bucket of movie theatre popcorn, sour gummies, and a Diet Coke…so I’m excited about that, too.
What have you been up to this weekend?! How are your New Year goals going?! Wishing you a wonderful day – whether you have it ‘off’ or not!
