and just like that, fall has come and gone,
and now, christmas is behind us, too. 2017 seemingly flew
by; did it for you? our weather has taken a dramatic
turn in the pacific northwest (we experienced our first
snowfall this past weekend), and i am eager to find cute (and warm)
ways to dress. confession: i keep an extra-large, plush blanket at
my desk and can often be seen typing away on my
computer while wrapped in said blanket. this girl is
^^^ karya and i had way too much fun playing
with and perfecting these giant bell sleeves! ^^^
during the work week, i crave comfort
and ease when it comes to getting dressed.
however, i also need (and want) to look
professional. a dress offers a simple solution:
one piece (plus shoes and accessories), and
you are on your way.
a knit dress, such as this dress from
the who what wear collection at target,
is a budget-friendly, trendy piece. the charcoal
grey makes it incredibly versatile, too. pair it
with turquoise, purple, emerald, or just about
any other jewel tone for a colorful ‘pop!’
i greatly enjoy anything and everything with
bell sleeves, and i hope this trend sticks around
come spring. speaking spring, too, i decided
to add color (and a pretty print) to this otherwise
neutral look with a vintage-inspired scarf.
not a fan of wearing scarves? instead, tie the scarf
in your hair or onto the strap of your handbag.

scarf: target, ring: lucky brand
a knit dress is wardrobe staple for everyone
this winter. wear it with tights, leggings,
flats, boots, etc. the options are seemingly
endless. it looks stylish and professional, but doesn’t
feel restrictive like other dresses often do.
(my exact dress is still available at target and
retails for less than $40).
what are some of your winter staples?
in addition to the knit dress, i cannot get
enough of my leather jacket and faux fur vests!
