If you checked out my last post you already know I’m shopping January’s irresistible store-and-site sales. As for finding deals and steals all I can say is “WINNING!” And by that I mean scoring great pieces I can wear now, into Spring, as well as next Fall and Winter. This look’s key players are this varsity jacket from Opening Ceremony, Madewell tuxedo stripe black jeans and Autumn Cashmere striped sweater. So even on a pretty gray day, I felt like a fashion champ.
A part of me questioned my fashion maturity when I fell for this ferociously faux feline topper from Kate Spade, but I’m glad I threw caution to the wind and bought it. Because…I simply love wearing it. It makes me smile, not to mention lots of other people. And isn’t that lighthearted side of fashion something we should indulge in every once in awhile? You will be happy to know that because this hat is so lightweight it never leaves me with “hat hair.” Aaah…the practical side of fashion that I love too.
We shot this post a few weeks back, and I was so excited to feature this fantastic faux fur-trimmed parka (now on sale!). But then Bomb Cyclone blew in, along with arctic temps, and fun fashion flew off the radar. Fortunately “normal” winter weather has returned, and I can put this parka, along with a snappy beret and footwear other than snow boots, into heavy rotation.
Thanks to BomboGenesis 2018, I spent most of yesterday working from home. Not in these cozy jammies but with this super cute pooch to keep me company. OK, and also to distract me with some ear scratching and tummy rubbing (his!). When Nature called (for Bowie!) we both had to bundle up to brave the blowing snow, deep drifts and below freezing temps. I didn’t think it was so bad. Not so sure about Bowie. While I’m currently juggling a couple of projects, I’m also working on getting Life’s a Spritz off to its best year yet. So in planning forward, I did a little looking back. At my most liked Instagram outfit posts. Believe it or not, this look came in at #1! (Think my Bowie “accessory” helped!!)
I can’t believe it’s already the last day of 2017, and that we’ll wake up to a New Year tomorrow. But before that happens one last post from our last day up in the Dacks, at least for a few weeks. And if you can’t tell by my “frozen” smile, it was seriously cold up there! What you can see with this outfit: a pom-pom beanie, puffer and OTK boots. What’s not obvious? The Uniqlo HEATTECH turtleneck and socks that helped me brave the single digit weather. While not down-filled, this puffer jacket keeps you quite cozy. And it’s also reversible!
