prepped


Lately I have been doing a lot of pacing in front of my closet, trying to figure out what to wear. I tend to get like this once the fun new-ness of the season wears off. All of a sudden I have "nothing to wear", a closet full on options that no longer seem quite appropriate. While I'm always a fan of a cozy sweater, I don't like the idea of falling into that comfortable rut. As a result I have been gravitating towards dressier pieces. I found this sleeveless silk top on sale (for a steal) at J. Crew the week before last and haven't stopped thinking up ways to wear it since. It's amazing what a little something new can do. This time I went for a preppy look with a gray sweater, sparkly necklace, and pointed toe flats.

Please tell me this happens to other people too.

  3. I feel your pain. It's cold out (other than today) but it's not freezing. Much like every girl, I'm sure you have a ton in that closet. It seems that you were able to pull out something adorable. I like the little touch of sparkle.

  5. Love the idea of using a sleeveless collared top to create this look! Lessens the bulk dramatically, especially when it is not FREEZING yet. Great idea!

  7. Loving how you elevated this classic look with a fun, sparkly accessory! I also bought a silk blouse from J.Crew last season and I reach for it all the time! It goes with everything and is so comfortable! I never thought to layer it under a sweater...will have to try that next time :)

  8. This look is so perfect. You look effortlessly pulled together.

    I am completely the same way about my existing closet but find that just one or two new pieces can make everything better. So of course this weekend that meant a new flannel shirt, a new basic black sweater, and the cutest new coat (all for insane deals! love holiday shopping). Hopefully all this helps me avoid an oversized sweater rut!

  14. I love your coat, the navy blue is so unique, you don't see many coats in this color. I think it is a second choice over black! Great pairings with your simple sweater and statement necklace.
