Has this not been the weirdest winter ever?! Up here in Maine we have had record breaking high temperatures, but then record breaking lows the very next day!! Today, it’s raining and 52 degrees which is so odd for February. This would typically be snow… but don’t worry in a week the forecast is predicting frozen rain and more snow. This makes getting dressed rather weird right now. Do I wear shorts? Do I wear a sweater? Do I need rain boots or snow boots or none of the above?!? I’ve been itching to start wearing more pastels again and shed my crazy winter attire that consists of layers upon layers topped with a down coat and fleece lined knit hat. Plus, I love my boots by they can get clunky and as of right now I am SO over them. Here’s the outfit I threw together on a mildly chilly day while channeling my inner spring & trying to keep warm.
Ever since I’ve been craving warmer weather and outfits that match, I’ve been digging a more casual look. I never usually go for slip-ons but recently I have been OBSESSED! I have on these heathered blue slip-ons from a local shoe store. I cuffed my dark washed jeans at the bottom because this is my favorite way to style any slip-on. I also didn’t mind the chilly air kissing my ankles for the first time on many months.
Dark washed jeans are some of my favorite because they can easily be dressed up or down. This pair in particular are from American Eagle along with the dusty blush top I’m wearing. I wanted to go with a pop of color to get out of the winter blues, but didn’t want to go too bright… It is still only February after all!
Then, to layer overtop and keep me warm I went with this amazingly comfy grey cardigan from Banana Republic. I have been living in this recently since it’s so cozy and warm. This sweater looks perfect over any outfit.
I can’t wait until the sun really starts to shine so I can start styling some even brighter and more exciting outfits and makeup to match!!
