So I am usually the first one to straight up HATE on Winter. When I lived in Charlotte, I would complain if the temperature dropped below 50 and was a huge baby about feeling cold. When I moved to Cleveland last year, I was still pretty grumpy about the constant gray skies and cold temps, but I have to say that now that I have surpassed the one year mark, the cold really does not bother me THAT much. Yes, I still hate the gloomy clouds but I have found that as long as I exercise daily (more on this in a future blog post), and just dress in happy colors, I am just fine!
I really love this winter look. I opted out of wearing opaque tights, but you totally could if you wanted to stay warm. This sweater is from J.Crew Factory and actually comes in 9 colors. I had to go with the Carolina blue! (Go Heels!) I love that it’s a bit oversized (I am wearing the medium), and that it can be tucked in or left out for a more casual look. I paired it with this J.Crew wool mini from a few years ago. I have tagged a similar skirt from this season down below. You could also pair this with jeans, leggings, or even a pleated midi skirt for a funkier look. I needed a little pop of excitement, so I chose to wear my current favorite booties. I have this thing with leopard right now and CANNOT stop. These are SUPER comfortable and I can actually go all day in them at school with zero discomfort. I have tagged my exact pair, but have also included two other swoon worthy styles.
How do you feel about Winter? Love it? Hate it? Tolerate it? I would have to say I just tolerate it now which is a huge step from my absolute hatred last year! 🙂 Have a great Sunday everyone!
