Winter Essentials.

Friday, January 30th, 2015

WE 3 (1 of 1)Happy Friday! With the last few days of January coming to a close, I decided to reflect on some of my favorite pieces from this season. Beyond my leather jacket and black jeans, I’ve discovered a few new staples in my wardrobe. Firstly, I’ve developed a new love for turtlenecks. I’ve always had a few in my closet, but this grey one is so simple and such a great layering piece. My lace bralette has also been a great layering piece; my favorite being with my white blouse. Of course, I had to include my black, chelsea boots because I wear them with absolutely everything, and I don’t know how I lived without them. Finally, my adorable backpack, which you may have seen in my last post (click here to see). Backpacks are such casual, easy bags, and I’m definitely going to be carrying it with me into the warmer months.

And a Backpack.

I’ve loved the backpack trend for a while now, but it wasn’t until I saw this one on Hello October that I completely fell in love. Being a student, backpacks are just incredibly practical, and I think they have such a cute, laid-back vibe. I wore it with this crazy soft sweater and one of my favorite pairs of jeans, these distressed, mom jeans. I completed the outfit, like I do most, with my Converse. Also, being that there is snow on the ground, it looks like it would be a little chilly to go jacket-less, but it was actually a good 40 degrees out, therefore, I am not insane.

Fun Fact: In the process of taking these photos, a deer ran out in front of me, leaving me to carry my tripod like a bat in anticipation for a deer attack  the entire walk back to my car.

Look! An outfit post! It’s been a while since I’ve had the courage to sacrifice the feeling in my fingers for some good outfit post pictures, but I have done it. This ensemble includes some of my favorite pieces this winter. I’m wearing a beautiful faux leather jacket over one of my favorite tops, a grey and white striped t-shirt. My black, ripped jamie jeans add a little grunge, and these black chelsea boots simplistically compete the outfit.
