Current Style Inspirations

This winter I've found myself faithfully bound to a few key looks. So much so that I did a major closet purge of winter items I had been holding on to but never wearing. Remember my K.I.S.S mantra? It's in full effect and I'm loving it. 

Here are the basic formulas I've been following:

The simplicity and sleekness of a black base is really appealing to me. I've been pairing my favorite pair of Madewell leggings with either a simple cotton turtleneck, or my favorite cowlneck tunic, then alternating different combos of outerwear, shoes and accessories. A black base really lets your accessories shine, which works well for me because they are my favorite thing to invest in! More often than not I have been pulling on my moto boots to go along with this look.


Another outfit combination that I currently love is the effortless look of leggings and an oversize tee, layered with an open cardigan and topped (or bottomed) off with sneaks! And if you are wondering, yes, I have pretty much abandoned my jeans at this point. I have been all about the comfort and leggings are just doing it for me right now. I have a few sneakers that I currently love: my Vans and  my NewBalance.

Last but not least: giant scarves plus classic neutrals. And coffee, lots of coffee. I consider it a lifestyle staple ;) My favorite scarf in heavy rotation at the moment is a black and white geometric print scarf I bought at H&M. They have a similar looking one for sale currently, and I found the exact one for sale on Poshmark here.
