This weather has been DOWNRIGHT crazy town. Last week I was wearing a slip dress, but this weekend I was whipping out my winter scarf again! WHAT. IS. HAPPENING. (PS it’s global warming but that’s another story for another day.)
There’s one key - one word really - that I’ve learned when dressing for this weird weather:
It’s the only way to be ready for 60 MPH winds, an abrupt snowstorm or a picnic outside during lunch. Because all of these could happen. EVEN ON THE SAME DAY.
I met up with new-to-town Crystal Brooks last week for a hang sesh and photo time over lunch. I wore this outfit to work with flats (these ones from Everlane are EVERYTHING) but changed later into these strappy sandals for going out to dinner.
I layered this look with my go-to Club Monaco trench that I snagged at Current Boutique for a crazy great price. I love the way it drapes too - adds such a luxe feel to any outfit.
This Uniqlo cropped trousers have also been my go-to during this weird weather period. If it’s windy, I’m good to go (learned my lesson the hard way with skirts TOO MANY TIMES.) If it’s warm, they’re breathable enough. If it’s cold, well, then only my ankles get a little cold! ;)
And in keeping with my favorite concept of balance, I paired these dressier items with a simple (yet super soft) tee from Cuyana. Their Fewer, Better campaign last year really impacted me and the way I buy clothing. I’ve been slowly pairing down my closet to only the things I truly love and investing in pieces that I know will last.
And - to be quite honest- this doesn’t always equate to something being expensive. For example, these trousers were under $40, and eventually went on sale to be under 20!
Do you have any tips for navigating this odd time of year? Would love to hear your thoughts below!
