Here’s a fun game I like to play. I love going on Polyvore and “shopping my closet” when I’m at a loss for outfit inspiration. Remember those pixie pants i was obsessing over? I bought them in white, too. If you like something, get it in every color, right? I’ve never worn white denim before, but it’s such a crisp and clean alternative to blue jeans, how could I not give it a go. Well. This outfit is a combination of “transitional” pieces that I have in my wardrobe. I’m determined to start incorporating spring into my  aesthetic, bit by bit. I like this outfit because it’s very classic yet very casual. The white pants and navy blouse make a wonderful canvas for some more “fun” pieces like the bubble necklace and Madewell flats (which I am still DYING to wear.) I would feel comfortable wearing this class and then out with friends, or into Manhattan for a day of shopping, or to see a show, really anywhere! Also, after months and months of donning my navy Parka, putting on a light trench is going to feel SO GOOD. The one I have is light tan with orange piping, but this Zara version is adorable as well.  I can’t wait to start playing with pieces like this as the weather warms up and hopefully I can re-create this outfit for you all!
What winter/spring transitions are you most excited about?
Much love,
Sarah.

WELL, the weather in Ann Arbor is frightful! So, I may have to wear (brace yourselves), jeans for my first day of classes tomorrow. I’m hoping by thursday it will thaw out a bit and i’ll be able to don a tad more feminine ensemble for the rest of the week. However, for those of you not susceptible to instant frostbite when walking outside, I figured i’d give you a little inspiraiton for your first day of classes outfit! The first day can often be a drag but dressing up for it can make it feel more like an important event, maybe even something to get excited about! I chose to go with a very simple, classic color scheme. Each season comes with new trends, and simultaneously, new “in vogue” color palettes. However, the classic “nautical” color scheme never goes out of style! It is appropriate for all seasons and ages, which I think is pretty wonderful. I picked this skirt/sweater combonation because it is conservative enough to wear to class while remaining fun and youthful. These camel-colored riding boots are GORGEOUS, and a perfect classic winter staple.Tights are a must for the winter time, and this French Connection are sturdy and opaque without looking too bulky.  Also, I adore these sparkling baubles, cat-eyed sunglasses, tailored toggle-coat and the stunning shade of this NARS lipstick. A little glamour never killed anyone 😉
Best of luck with your winter semesters!
Much love,
Sarah
