What to wear when you’re ready for spring but it’s still snowing 

If you’re anything like me, you have those moments where you look at your closet in despair and cry, internally or out loud to anyone who will listen, “I have nothing to wear!” 

I find this is even more true now that I am trying to curate a capsule wardrobe. I’m not quite there yet, but I have significantly pared down my closet in the past several months. 

When I get into a creative rut like this, I often borrow clothes from my very cool roommates. This gives me the small thrill of wearing new (to me) clothes while keeping true to my goals and not buying too many new clothes.

I hit one of these ruts last week, and instead of giving in and buying something new, I decided to take a page out of Rebecca Jacob’s book and layer one of my favorite warm weather shirts over a turtleneck. I loved the pop of color and spring feel, with the warmth of several layers. I think this outfit would’ve been a bit more successful if the sleeves of the blue top were flowy, but I like how it looked with my jacket on, and it was such a breath of fresh air to wear something different!

Shades of Grey


I’m very excited about this outfit because I’ve had my eye on this coat since November.  November!  I tried it on in Forever 21 when I was Black Friday shopping and loved it–and even got my little brother’s approval (those of you who have brothers know how difficult it is to get them interested in your fashion choices).  It wasn’t on sale and I needed a heavier winter coat, so I passed.  But I kept thinking of it for months, and finally bought it a few weeks ago.  It’s very versatile, and light enough (both the material and the color) that it will still be season-appropriate in the spring.
