Saturday Sunday Loungewear

Ever have those days when you're contemplating wearing your pajamas out of the house? Yeah, me too. Only today, I sorta did. No, not one of those pajama sets. And no, I don't consider yoga pants pajamas. Thanks to a recent trip to Anthropologie I came across a new brand of loungewear that is totally wear-out-in-public AND on-the-couch approved. With an equally appropriate name, Saturday/Sunday, features comfy separates made for pairing with the rest of your closet. The bonus? They're on sale right now!

Here's how I wore the cutie I scooped up (on sale of course!)

(Yes, I owe you a "fashion apology". Those are totally UGGS I'm wearing. What can I say? It was 3 degrees outside. Functional won over fashionable footwear. Wah wah.)

White Jeans in Winter?

Do you own a pair of white jeans? Have you ever thought about wearing them in the winter?! I hadn't thought it was possible until I started reading about this topic just recently. Even my husband bawked and exclaimed, "No white after Labor Day!"

According to LuckyMag online, white jeans are totally acceptable for winter- and I couldn't agree more. There's something slightly rebellious about putting on those stark jeans when it's 10 degrees out.

Keep your white denim winter-worthy by pairing it with a sweater, or fitted sweatshirt, and boots- layer a button down underneath and top with a blazer to keep the warmth in. Accessorize at will.

How I wore it:

I realize that my shoe option isn't the most seasonally appropriate...riding boots were substituted to leave the house. All in all, topped with a blazer and boots, I felt ready for the chill!

Brights and Tights

Looking for a way to infuse color into an everday shiftdress? Start with a pair of colorful tights that contrast with the color of your dress! It's a budget friendly option that anyone can master.

This was my inspiration...

This is my interpretation...

Cold Weather to the Max

It's cold here in Michigan. I mean, COLD. With a chill in the air, it's time to get creative in how you layer and make the most of your closet. Turn to an item that is normally saved for the summer and work it in for some warmth. Pair it with a slim-fitting turtleneck sweater, boots, and jewels for a wintery twist.
