Happy Sunday! I hope you're having a wonderful weekend. Jason and I have spent ours taking it slow, having brunch at home, strolling around downtown and working on the house - the perfect balance of fun and productivity.
In preparation for my upcoming winter capsule (finally coming your way next week!) I have a small fashion haul to share today. If you saw my winter planning post, then you know that I had my eye on a few things for the winter season. After testing out a few of those items I settled on a few from that list and a few not on that list.
All-in-all, I'm very happy with the purchases that I've made and hope that they help inspire you if you're in the market for some great (affordable) cashmere, statement earrings or go-to booties.
First up, is my favorite item this season - the Marc Fisher Yale booties. I LOVE these booties and after seeing them on countless bloggers I finally gave them a go and couldn't be happier!
Not only are these booties incredibly versatile (I've worn them with skirts, pants and jeans so far), but they're also incredibly comfortable!
I've had these for a few weeks now and have already worn them so much that I'm contemplating getting the suede for spring.
Another item I really wanted for winter is a ruffled, bell-sleeve sweater. Unlike the classic items I tend to gravitate towards, I knew that this piece may not make it back into my closet next year so I didn't want to spend a ton on it. Instead, I checked a few of the low-mid tier retailers and ended up finding exactly what I wanted at Forever 21.
I'll save you a ton of detail now expect to say that I'm working on a post all about adding trend pieces to your otherwise classic wardrobe so stay tuned for that in the next few days/weeks.
The second sweater that I picked up IS a timeless essential and an old favorite - the Everlane Cashmere Crew. If you saw my 5 most worn items from 2016, then you know that I love these sweaters and added the lovely light grey shade for winter.
I have an in-depth review of these sweaters coming soon but for now I can't recommend them enough if you're in the market for a classic, well-made cashmere sweater.
Next up, is a new striped tee. As I shared in my winter capsule planning post, I've been on the hunt for a new, looser fitting striped tee for those days when I want something a little cozier.
After trying out a few options I settled on my go-to J.Crew striped tee but in a larger size. The effect is the perfect amount of slouch without being frumpy.
Plus, the 100% cotton composition and 3/4 sleeves mean that I'll be able to wear this tee year-round.
The last two items that I picked up for winter are two pairs of BaubleBar earrings. The first pair is the "Mini Pinata" in coral. These earrings are the loveliest shade of orangey red and look fantastic with neutral layers now and will really pop against all white and stripes in the spring and summer.
The next pair of earrings is the BaubleBar 'Olympia' Drop Earrings which feature a chic marble effect surrounded by crystals and gold. I love these earrings and have worn them with my grey cashmere sweater, head-to-toe black and even a crisp white button down for a simple look that really pops. Unfortunately these earrings are currently sold out everywhere but you may be able to pick them up on eBay or Poshmark.
That's everything! I'm very pleased with each of these purchases and think that they will round out my existing core items beautifully this season. Before I go, I've embedded my corresponding YouTube video below and I'd love to know what you've picked up this season. Is there anything you're particularly excited about? Let me know in the comments below and I hope you have a great rest of the weekend!
