Welcome to a mere sampling of what I'm dreaming about fashion-wise this winter. Naturally, it is almost all from Anthropologie. I'm sure you're completely shocked.
Recently I've begun to integrate more color into my wardrobe. I really admire the more free-spirited vibe that it gives me. Reds, greens, yellows, browns and oranges are all in heavy rotation right now. It's sort of a phenomenon for a girl whose closet has been home to almost all black, camel and grey for the past five years. It's nice to let my artsy side out again. I've missed her!
To go along with that look, I'm been adding more layers to my outfits -- I have several lacy camisoles and tanks that I have picked up over the past year, and I even bought a beautiful lace slip at a vintage store that works under several of my dresses. Then I almost always add a cardigan and woolly tights. I just bought a pair from Anthro that sadly has to be returned because they had a spot on them when I took them out of their packaging. Boo. I hope to have better luck with the next pair. Sometimes I score a good pair of tights from Target, but Macy's and Anthro seem to have the best colors, and they aren't much more expensive. I tried a pair from another store, which shall remain nameless, and they ripped before I even got them up. Such is the life of a too-tall girl, I guess.
Finally, the winter weather is here to stay, so I'm starting to wear boots more and more often. I found a great pair at Banana Republic that I got on sale, and I'm looking forward to wearing them with the aforementioned Anthro tights. I also add a scarf (my current favorites are from a shop on Capri (gifted to me by my mom) and a local vintage shop ($30), and I'm still looking for the perfect cloche, although I'm not sure that there is one out there that won't make me look like a jerk.
We shall see.
Winter fashion is so much more fun than summer because I'm not sweating all the time, and there is always the possibility of a snow day.
