It’s the February edition of LET’S LOOK!
Once a month, Erika and I host a link up where we “look” at little aspects of our lives. If you’re a blogger, make sure you blog and link up! Please note, we always do this link up on the second Wednesday of each month, but next month, we will be doing it on March 18th instead.
And today, we’re taking a little look at our WINTER WARDROBES.
Okay, I am very much a “sweater, jeans, booties, repeat” kind of girl. I mean, I do have a little “uniform” that I repeat, but this season, I did introduce three new-ish (to me at least) things to my wardrobe. I really don’t know why it took me so long to discover/fall in love with each of them. I thought I’d share those today starting with…
So, I had heard about these things for a long time, but it wasn’t until this year that I actually invested in a pair. First of all, they’re insanely comfortable. The band around the waist is high enough to not cut you off in the mid-section (plus, it really smooths you out) so whether you’re sitting or standing, they stay put and they stay comfy. Also, they don’t stretch out and get baggy/odd looking in the knees or bum like some leggings do. They really hold their shape time and time again. I actually wore mine three days last week. Three. I’m telling you, AMAZING!
I am going to be really sad when it’s no longer faux-leather legging season any more :). (Side note, my sweater is still available HERE.)
The second item that I found and loved this winter is…
My Wit & Wisdom slightly distressed jeans are just so perfect!! I have heard friends rave about this brand of denim for years, but it wasn’t until I saw this slightly distressed pair on the mannequin at the store that I thought “hmmm, I need to try those! Since then, I’ve worn them so much! In fact, as I type, I’m wearing them now for the second day in a row. I love that the waist is a nice mid-rise. I don’t like them too low and I don’t like them high, so this is just perfect. I also love that they have stretch (which makes them comfy) but they’re not baggy or shapeless either. I also love the little bit of distressing too. In other words, perfection 🙂 . Please note, I would size down once in these jeans. In the pic above, you can also find my pullover HERE.
We all know that I’ve been a Patagonia girl for years and a sweater girl too, but recently, I’ve become a sweatshirt girl. My life is very casual so a sweatshirt just works most days. I can put that on with jeans and pretty much make any occasion from therapies with my kiddos to volunteering at school to watching sports to sitting at my desk (or in my car chauffeuring the kids around!) easy. They’re soft, lighter in weight and easy to wash and dry. I’m wearing one right now 🙂 .
So, that’s my current winter wardrobe! I can’t wait to see what everyone else is wearing in the link up!!
…I’m going to show you a peek inside my purse!! Don’t forget, that link up will be on March 18th!
Okay, what’s your favorite winter wardrobe piece?! I would love to know!!!!
See you guys back here tomorrow! xx
