I've been so excited to start my blog back up again after taking over a year off to focus on a new job and life in a new city. After taking so much time off and getting some clarity on my blogging goals, I realized I really missed everything that blogging was to me, but most of all I was missing a creative outlet. So far I've kept up with my January goal to post twice a week, and this week I am especially excited to share an outfit!
This poncho from LOFT has been one of my favorite things I've purchased all year! It is so soft and cozy- which is especially important here in Texas where the weather has been freezing every day. I've worn it dressed up like in the pictures but I also like to wear it with jeans and a tee all the time! It's still in stock and currently 50% off! This ruffle sleeve sweater is also one of my favorite purchases this year. I love the detail on the sleeves- it's elevated from a classic white sweater but still just as versatile. It's online in all sizes at Club Monaco! I've linked a few of my other favorite white ruffle sweater options above- all are under $100! This one is my favorite though!
I love an all-white color palette in winter. I'd be embarrassed to tell you how many white sweaters I've mixed-and-matched with this skirt. A neutrals addict I may be, I think there is something to be said for figuring out a color palette that works for you and then keeping key items like a great shoe and bag in constant rotation- it makes putting outfits together much easier. These grey over-the-knee boots have been a staple in my wardrobe the last 2 years, I've worn them with everything from jeans to leather leggings and dresses to skirts. I'd been eyeing this bag for a few years and finally decided to invest and I'm so glad I did. I've linked these plus a few similar less expensive boot and bag options above!
