It's been awhile since I've shared an Instagram wrap up showing what I've been wearing lately! So many combinations that never quite make it over to the blog. My favorite thing is using a dedicated hashtag each year to look back and see the outfits I pulled together for inspiration on those days when the closet feels daunting. Here are my January looks!
Last year I grabbed this vest on sale at a local boutique during their 75% off sale. It's a little bulky but I paired with this lightweight cowlneck sweater and it was perfect for a winter day in Texas.
One of my very favorite looks ever is the cream sweater layered over the gingham with this green vest. The J. Crew vest is an investment but one that has been totally worth it. The color alone has added so much fun to my combos. We have had a few days cold enough to warrant a blanket scarf and I love the fun these colors add. Plaid + Gingham works!
See, I told you this vest was worth the investment! Speaking of investing, I can't say enough about my Frye boots. Year two and they are proving to be an item that will last for years. I have been itching to wear this combination again and it may just be one of the outfits I pack for our upcoming Vegas trip. Adding a little pop of leopard with my favorite cuff.
Speaking of leopard, I never thought to pair with grey until my beautiful daughter walked in one day wearing it. If you haven't tried this sweater yet, you are really missing out because it is so soft and such a great weight for Texas. I will tell you if you want more of a sweater fit you need to size down. I stuck with a medium and it is a bit oversized but I don't mind because I have enjoyed wearing with leggings as well as my jeans and dress pants. It is a tad low cut so finding a cute tank to layer under might also be helpful. I'm hoping to snag this one before our trip!
My sweet friend Kelli gave me this wrap for Christmas and at first I had no idea how I was going to style it. In came a solid black swing dress layered over a chambray shirt with my OTK boots and I had a winner. Loving this new bag from Stella and Dot by the way!
Yep, there's that bag again! Last year I wore this floral sweater all the time but it's January and it just finally made an appearance. Sometimes my items just need some freshening up. Last season I was pulling from the reds in the sweater and wore with a lot of black. I love how the teal really worked to give it a new pop. Of course this jacket....oh this jacket is such a favorite and I have it in two colors! The color and the weight is perfect fall through spring.
That's right, the jacket was worn both Friday and Monday! I was working on a style challenge for Monday centered around "moody blooms" and wasn't really feeling any of the floral scarves in my closet. I did remember a scarf Carly Jo wore for our family photos and tada..perfect! Stripes + Floral is a fun combo! The Sole Society purse is also a recent favorite and I've been surprised at how much it holds.
I am cheating slightly with this picture! It actually was a 2016 Instagram post but I DID wear it this January exactly like this after seeing this picture. I found this sweater last year at American Eagle 75% off. I really pulled out all the stops with Dots+Plaid+Leopard but y'all, it is one of my favorite combinations ever!
Selfies seem overrated but let me tell you my favorite part. There are times I put an outfit together and think it really works right up until I see a picture. It really has helped me see how to manage my closet a little better and also helped me purge when I realize an item just isn't really working for me anymore.
