"Wine" a Little Bit, You'll Feel Better

Wearing – Sweater: Express | Tank: Express | Pants: Vigoss Coated Denim {sold out; similar} | Booties: Sam Edelman {old; similar} | Watch: Vince Camuto | Necklace/Earrings: Shop Bella C

Lately, every morning I find myself whining silently, or sometimes not so silently, "I have NOTHING to wear." Yeah, we've all been there. I sit there and stare blankly at a closet filled with beautiful clothes and say this, when it all actuality, the problem is that I have creative block when it comes to putting new outfits together. We'll just say my fashion canvas is blank. Whether it's the changing weather or my desire to keep my summer and fall items in my rotation a bit longer, I have little outfit inspiration these days. So I decide to combat this by going back to the basics–simple color combos, fun jewelry and of course fabulous shoes help me get through these conundrums.

After whining to the only person awake–my dog, Lola–I managed to rummage through sweaters to find one I forgot I purchased a little while back. I had been looking for a wine colored, waffle knit sweater for some time and thankfully found one at Express. Definitely a great buy if you're looking for something cozy! Paired with a matching lace tank, black coated denim and a new favorite neutral, leopard, I managed to leave the house looking put together.

Let's be honest, I was two seconds from wearing my bath robe into the office if I hadn't found this outfit. My co-workers can thank me later. Ha!

  5. You can never go wrong with wine (both the color and the actual beverage). And I'm so relieved to read that someone else considers their dog "the only other person awake." I whine to mine all the time! You look fantastic in wine- very flattering on you.

    1. Thank you, Susan! As a lady, you know the struggle to find, and come up with, new outfits is a total reality. So sometimes I seriously consider the bathrobe option. Ha! Thank you for stopping by!
