Winter is here in full force in New England. It seems as though every other day we are getting more and more snow. I always find it funny that snow is light around here during the Christmas season but when February comes around and I am starting to feel ready for spring, we get hit with winter hard. But I digress…
Since the stores are starting to fill up with spring nod resort wear, it’s hard not to be tempted to buy it and even harder not to want to wear it. I am a buy now wear now type of girl so I am always trying to be creative in styling pieces that may seem out of season. That’s why I chose to style this grey stipend top and ripped acid wash jeans for the winters mess I am currently living in.
Typically when it comes to fall and winter denim, you typically think of darker colors and not so much acid wash. But paid them with a good pair of booties and a chunky sweater or a warm coat and they instantly become winter wear.
This top, however wasn’t so cut and dry. The fabric is light and the sleeves are three quarter length at best (and can we talk about how pretty those sleeves are?!) I obviously wore the parka in order to keep warm and I also layered a tank underneath, so layering is crucial. But I also coordinated matching winter accessories with the grey pom beanie and taupe booties in order to make this piece more cold weather appropriate.
Both the jeans and the booties are on sale at Express and right now there is an additional 40% off clearance! Also, the parka is on sale at Target for under $25!
