I'm slightly embarrassed to say this blue sweater has been sitting in my hamper for over a year. I rarely take things to the dry cleaner and unfortunately for this sweater that meant hanging out in a wrinkled mess at the bottom of my closet for a while. And did I go to the dry cleaner you might be asking? No, but I did finally buy some dryel and the result is that this drapey lovely is back in rotation.

Of course, I couldn't resist adding vest and some mixed metal jewelry. The result, a pretty perfect outfit for a weekend coffee date. When the only layer you need in mid February is a vest, that's my kind of winter.

I don't know if I've ever matched my backdrop as well as I do today. I'm on record as saying as much, but monochromatic dressing is my new thing lately, and these stretchy amazing jeans from Banana are making my flair for neutral dressing all the more easier. I stalked these bad boys for a good while, waiting to nab them during a 40% off promotion. I also saved a few reward dollars and ended up practically stealing them for $10 or something ridiculous. If you're in the market for high-waisted, ankle length, beyond comfortable jeans, I can't recommend these more.

January in Review

January-2016-in-Review

I can't believe the first month of 2016 is officially in the books. It's been a pretty busy start to the new year with a few Stella & Dot gigs, travel to Texas, and the usual 9-5 obligations. But it feels good to have the first month in the books. Outside of a few days of snow, it's actually been really pleasant in Ohio. Here's to hoping that trend sticks the rest of winter.

Highlights:
- A week spent in Texas! Between work, sorority, and Stella & Dot it was a whirlwind 7 days. 
- And when you're in Texas, that means In-N-Out. 
- Taking advantage of extra time in Austin and seeing the {nerd alert} Capital Building and LBJ Presidential Library.

Favorite Looks:
January Faves
- Same pants, same shoes, no problem! Paired down closet, you're growing on me.
- Original posts here and here.

Looking Forward To:
- February 22nd. It's National Margarita Day, need I say more?
- Galentine's Day, and by Galentine's Day I mean spending 2/14 on the couch with my favorite pinot. 
- Birthday dinner at Taste of Belgium.

Sweater: Evereve • JeansPaige Jewelry: Stella & Dot Bag: Michael Kors  Boots: Trunk Club

I live in this cozy sweater during the winter. I love the neckline and off the shoulder cut, but what I love the most is how it feels like I am wearing a blanket. While this gem is starting to show it's love {hello fuzzies and pilling}, I won't stop wearing it anytime soon. Well maybe if we get a wave of warm weather....but let's be real. It won't be warm until at least March. We have at least another 60 days together. And I'm going to make the most of it!
