Spring Blues

Four days into spring and I’m still wearing thick sweaters and heavy jackets. I’m so over this weather and ready to break out the sundresses and sandals and have picnics in the park. I’m hoping April brings along some heat, but I guess I’ll embrace the sweater weather while I still can.

Now is the perfect time to stock up on all your cold weather essentials. Big, chunky sweaters like this are starting to go on sale, and if you’re anything like me, you can’t bring yourself to overpay for a plain ‘ol pullover. This blue knit is a gem and I surprisingly stumbled upon it on a random Tuesday at H&M for only $17! I also picked up another similar to this, but flecked with orange for just $20 (see it on my Instagram here). Both were originally $49.99, which isn’t an outrageous price for a sweater, but there are a million other things I’d rather buy with $50.

You can never have too many sweaters and they’re essential pieces for a capsule wardrobe. I’m definitely holding on to both for next fall to add a bright pop of color to my wardrobe!

February Feels

It’s officially February! I can’t believe how fast time is flying by this year. Along with February comes Valentine’s Day, a reminder to love not only your significant other (if you have one), but also your friends, family and everyone around you. Most people think this holiday is overrated, but I personally like to embrace all of its cheesiness and all the chocolate that comes along with it.

My dear friend and fellow classmate Allie (here’s a link to her website), came up with the idea to dress in Valentine’s colors to embrace love. I took this as the ideal opportunity to break out this new red sweater I picked up from Necessary Clothing in Soho earlier this week. I can’t get enough of the lace up details on the sleeves and the oversized fit. I deem this the perfect cozy knit for my first official winter in the city.
