The weather is so crazy here in the DMV (DC, MD, VA) area and we don’t how to dress! One minute it’s 70 degrees and we think spring is here and the next the cold is back…Literally. It’s really hard to figure out what to wear, so why not just mix all the seasons together! I’ve always felt that whites can be worn in the winter and it’s actually really pretty. It brings just a touch of spring to the cold months. I paired these white jeans with a neutral colored roll neck sweater and taupe over the knee boots to winterize the look and also made it more casual with this distressed denim jacket. Adding the jacket breaks up the neutrals but it doesn’t overpower the outfit. Also wearing a heavier sweater with a lighter jacket can help when trying to tackle the bipolar weather. If it gets too hot you can toss the jacket and scarf and still look pulled together. One of these days we will be able really see spring but until then stay cute loves!
Life’s Essentials – The Denim Jacket
So I thought I’d highlight through my posts some pieces that I think are essential to building a classic wardrobe. Everyone needs key pieces in their closet, so that no matter you add or what trends you find, you can always go back to those classic pieces and mix and match. A denim jacket is one of those items that everybody should own. I really think you should have multiple in various styles and colors. You can basically pair a denim jacket with absolutely anything and it will look like its a part of the outfit. I particularly love this distressed jacket because it adds just enough edge to a girly outfit. Whether dressing up or dressing down, go out and buy one right away and if you already have one buy another! Here are some of my picks below.
