Tartan + Navy Blue

I am starting to believe Punxsutawney Phil…no shadow…early Spring (and is it ever!) Yesterday, I didn’t even need my Winter coat and although today is brisk, the Winter coat is still too heavy for the weather that we are having! I can’t say I am overly thrilled about it because I do enjoy a beautiful snowfall, however, I am excited to not have to bundle up and be permanently cold for the next couple of months! Sunshine, sunshine and more sunshine – so I can’t complain!

Details

Sweater: Winners (similar here and here) / Oxford Shirt: JOE Fresh (similar herehere and here) / Leggings: Lila Rose (similar here)/ Boots: L.L. Bean / Bracelet: Gifted (similar here and here) / Earrings: Marley Lilly (similar here)

I love having unique pieces (like these tartan leggings) in my wardrobe that I can make the focal point of my look. I saw these tartan leggings on Amanda of Little Southern Life and I instantly needed them in my wardrobe. I have to say, they are one of my comfiest pairs of leggings I own to date. One of my favourite things to do is pair wildly unique pieces with more classic pieces (I just love the contrast), which is why the more conservative sweater + oxford combo was a no-brainer! Sophisticated and chic was my aim for this look!

So much is coming up in the next week and a half, but after that, I finally get a well-deserved Reading break! I can’t wait to move home and spend some QT with the family watching movies, going shopping and doing other fun stuff when I’m home! Not to mention relax and not worry about school (ick!).

Cheers!

    I wish I didn’t have to wear my winter coat! We are still expecting snowfall for the next couple of weeks and temps to go down into the 20’s….but there’s Chicago for you! I love the way you styled this look!

    Love, Mariam
