By this point in the winter I find myself feeling more and more like I "have nothing to wear". I have exhausted my favorites and worn everything one too many times. You could say I'm stuck in a end of season closet rut. I don't want to break out my new spring pieces just yet so instead, to combat my wardrobe restlessness, I've been making an effort to pair pieces that I haven't previously and utilize some of those items I haven't worn as much. 

A couple of years ago these pants were in stead rotation, but as I've been wearing snow boots just about every day this winter, I have left them tucked away in favor of more neutral pants that will look okay if I don't want to change out of my boots when I get to work. Lazy, I know. It's the little things. To switch things up a bit I paired them with a simple slate blue top from H&M and suede heels.

On a much cuter note, today my best buddy, almost eight pound Mischa turns NINE! My how the time flies. I absolutely cannot wait to see her on Thursday so we can eat eggs and cheese and take naps.
