Hey hey! Who wants to chat about some mediocre outfits of the day?
There isn’t really anything too uber exciting to show in the world of outfits recently. Honestly, I’m so behind on laundry that most of my favorites are heaped up in a pile in the basement to be washed. But besides that, I just haven’t had the desire to really search through my closet in the mornings for anything great. I guess maybe we’ll blame it on the weather.
But besides that, I discovered that I still had a few on the ol’ phone, so I figured I’d share with you today.
My outfit from my weekend at the ADADC Dairy Tour
- Sweater: Texture Knit Sweater via Old Navy
- Scarf: Stitch Fix
- Pants: Kut From The Kloth Danny 5-Pocket Knit Pant via Stitch Fix
- Boots: Bear Traps via Macy’s (from a few years ago, but the Kyletta is similar)
A random weekday work outfit (before it became FRIGID out there!)
- Top: Dolman Tee via Old Navy (couldn’t find the exact one but similar, similar, similar)
- Skirt: Merona Knit Maxi Skirt
- Scarf: Sole Society
A Wednesday work-from-home outfit of choice this week
- Sweatshirt: MSC BG Sweatshirt via Target (<—LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!)
- Yoga Pants: Express Fold Over Yoga Pant (mine are from about 3 years ago!)
- iPhone 6 Case: Maxboost Vibrance Series in Tiffany Blue via Amazon
And just for fun…here’s a look at my typical, M-F outfit from 4pm and beyond (aka, my cozies for once I get home from work)
- Sweatshirt: Who knows…used to be my dad’s YEARS ago.
- T-shirt: No idea
- Sweatpants: Again, couldn’t tell ya…they’re ancient
Like I said…not anything too exciting, but I still had fun nonetheless!
So in addition to those, I thought today would be a good opportunity to share some of my favorite cold weather…things, I guess we’ll say? Once the temps drop, there are certain things that get changed or added to my daily routines, as I’m sure is the case with many of you as well. Let’s take a look…
My Cold Weather Fashion/Beauty Favorites
My friend Eileen made this for me a couple of years ago, but headbands are great when you know you’re going to be outside for a while but don’t quite want to commit to “hat hair,” which I inevitably get after wearing a hat for no more than five minutes. There are so many cute ones out there, like here, here, and here.
You guys have probably already caught on to the fact that I love scarves. But I’ve actually sort of steered away from regular scarves and tend to just go for the infinity ones. I like the look of them better and, for me, they’re way easier to wear (aka…I don’t have to worry about how the heck to tie it!). Right now, Express has some adorable ones that I’m eyeing (plus they’re having $30 off $100 until Friday!) and so does Target.
These things are a lifesaver when it comes to static during the dry winter months. I try to keep some extras either at my desk at work or in my car and they work like a CHARM when the static gets bad. I’ll just typically rub it under my shirt or wherever the static is, and it’s completely gone!
A blog reader (I can’t remember who!) recommended this First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream shortly after I blogged about my troubles with KP and I purchased it almost immediately. I can’t really speak too much for the KP (although it hasn’t been too bad lately!) but the moisturizer itself is amazing and feels great on dry skin. I tend to load up a bit extra at night before bed and right after I get out of the shower in the mornings.
I never used this stuff until we had Lucas, and it has worked wonderfully on him (he tends to sometimes get dry skin on his cheeks or under his nose when he’s sick). I’ve also used it on myself when I have a particularly dry patch of skin and it really is great. A little slimy though, so go light with it!
Boot Socks/Leg Warmers
I seriously LOVE this look so, so much. Yet, I still haven’t gotten myself a pair of them. I guess I’m worried that I’m not going to get them to look right?? Because I’ve certainly seen them worn before in styles that I’m not a fan of. But I really think that this is going to be the year that I give them a try.
What do you guys think? Love ‘em? Hate ‘em? Own any good ones you’d recommend?
I am never, ever without lip balm. It’s not that I even have particular dry lips in the winter or any time of year…I think it’s more that I’ve gotten so used to the feeling of having it on that I feel naked without it. These are the two that I currently have in my purse (I love the menthol feeling of both of them!) but I’m not particularly loyal to any one brand.
Do you guys have any lip balm favorites?
Well, that’s a wrap! I’m sure I have more that I’m forgetting, but I’ll just include those next time around.
So tell me…what are some of your cold weather favorites??
