Easy Dressing Thanks to Winter

Sometimes outfits should just be easy. Like when it is winter and you’re sick of it, so you’re in mourning over the loss of sun and warmth and bike rides and joy (just kidding about that last one). So you reach for your trusty little black dress, a blazer, tights, and ankle boots for warmth, and your new statement necklace that you have been dying to show off.

That my friends is how you make life easy.

    I don’t know what I like more – the necklace, your dog,or the blazer (which is very Kate Middleton! – http://www3.images.coolspotters.com/photos/774533/kate-middleton-and-zara-jacket-with-zip-and-belt-gallery.jpg

    • Ummm Kaci. Let’s be best friends, okay?! You compared my blazer to Kate Middleton’s…which in my eyes is like being compared to Kate Middleton. WHOM. I. ADORE.

      Seriously though. Best friends for life? I know we’ve never met, so think about it. ;)

        Haha yes!! I’m almost embarrassed to admit how many things in my closet are Kate Middleton-inspired.

    I hear you on the sun mourning. I think the black really showcases your awesome necklace though. Also the dress for $15? Sign me up in at least 2 colors.

    • Right? Well…I may have bought the polka dot one…soooo. Okay?! Hahaha.You need more dresses to fill up your new closet ;)

      Ps. J, don’t kill me.
