Somewhat surprisingly, I’ve been really embracing the lighter palette this season. While I really dig my typical dark neutrals, the lighter neutrals have been really calling my name as of late. I was on the fence about buying these dark blush/mauve-colored Martie pants from J.Crew, but they were on sale for something ridiculously cheap that I felt like I had nothing to lose (except well, $25). But I’m actually quite thrilled with them as they are a big departure from the black/grey/navy work trousers that are in regular outfit rotation during the work week. Here I paired them with stripes as I try to grow accustomed to mixing and matching mauve with a color that’s more adventurous.
I’m crying right now. Because I’m dying to wear spring outfits, and it still feels like winter outside. I am absolutely obsessed with these olive J.Crew Martie pants, and paired with white it looks so fresh! sigh. Just a few more days and maybe I can finally put away that heavy winter parka.
This is the first skirt post in a while, and there are a few reasons why. One, I do not like wearing skirts in the winter. The drafty-ness that occurs when the wind blows up against my legs is enough to make me put all my skirts away until spring. The second reason is that the extra weight I’ve put on over the last fall and winter season has prevented me from zipping up all my skirts! But now that I’m back “within range”, you will likely be seeing more skirts in upcoming blog posts.
