Januarys is my least favorite month. It is also a time when there is nothing exciting in the stores. There is leftover Christmas and New Year’s Clearance and the shelves are empty. UGH!
Things are slowly trickling in and today I want to share some of my new winter pieces I am super excited about. These pieces will be a capsule wardrobe of sorts that will get me through to when the cute new spring things will be arriving.
NEW WINTER TRANSITION PIECES I AM SUPER EXCITED ABOUT
UTILITY JACKET | Such a great transition piece, it is a great alternative to my favorite denim jacket. I plan on wearing it a lot this season. It is a bestseller at Nordstrom and is so affordable.
STRIPED SHIRT | I am a sucker for a striped anything. Add a cute puff sleeve and I am yours. This shirt is great on its own with a cute pair of denim and sneakers and is also a great layering piece under jackets and cardigans.
QUILTED SWEATSHIRT | Generally, I am not a sweatshirt person, but this one is so cute and different. Again you had me with the puff sleeve. Cute with denim for a casual look or with the faux leather pants for an edgier, date night look.
FAUX LEATHER PANTS | These pants are so versatile and are also surprisingly warm. I wear them to work and on date nights and they are super cute.
WOVEN TOTE | My new spring tote. It is the perfect size and I am obsessed with it!
SUNNIES | I always buy a new pair of sunnies in the spring. It always gets me excited for the warmer weather, that I have been missing so much. I don’t spend a lot of money, because I am hard on my sunnies. I love the Quay brand because they are cute and affordable.
VEJAS | My obsession with Vejas continues. My first pair lasted me a good long time. I wore them into the ground and I still wear them but needed an upgrade for spring. I am loving these velcro ones. Vejas always come with a bit of a break-in period but it is worth it. I like these so much better than the Golden Goose. I honestly don’t understand what that is all about!
JEANS | My favorite new pair of denim. They run a bit big so size down. Super comfortable, stretchy, and affordable. I am obsessed.
LIPSTICK | Nothing gets me more excited for the warmer weather than a bright pink lipstick. It just screams spring to me. This is a really nice sophisticated color that feels super comfortable on the lips
SWEATER JACKET | This is not a new piece but I had rarely worn it as it had a defect and it took me forever to replace it. So it is new to me. I always love how I look when I am wearing it and it is a great layering and travel piece. Great for work as well.
GRAPHIC TEE | I saw a super cute graphic tee online but it was $100. I knew it would end up in the laundry pile and get washed and dried, so I didn’t want to spend the money. This one is so similar and under $15.00. The perfect way to try out the trend before committing.
SLIDES | Gucci but make it affordable. These dupes are of great quality and elevate any outfit. I love the price tag and they come in lots of different colors.
All f these pieces will keep me going until the warmer weather finally gets here. Can you tell, I am excited about warmer weather? I hope you find some inspiration in these transition pieces I am super excited about. I know it can be hard to come by in January.
