Hello, cold weather and hello, early winter! It's not usual that I get so excited about dropping temps, but I was in Miami last week, for a funeral of all things, and it must have been my emotional state but I found the heat to be ridiculously suffocating. Even though I lived there in my early years and know first hand how hot the sun can be there, I completely packed all of the wrong things - utility jackets, skinny jeans, long-sleeved lace tops. Ugh.
Now that I'm back home, I'm 110% embracing the cold. I've been loving everything oversized and I've been going up a size or two in most of my knits. One of the pieces I'm loving is this cremé-coloured oversized turtleneck from H&M that I picked up while I was in Iceland. I got it in a large because I wanted it to feel like a blanket hugging me. I've been pairing it black skinnies - either my Topshop Jamie jeans or leather leggings from Mackage to keep the look streamlined. Finally, this heavenly textured coat is from Massimo Dutti is perfect for when the temperature drops. It's lightweight but extremely warm and cozy thanks to the wool, alpaca, and mohair that gives the coat it's beautiful texture.
I know my excitement for the chilly weather will eventually die down, but hey, at least there's beautiful sweaters, boots, and coats to keep playing with because if I was in Miami wearing cut-offs and t-shirts all of the time, I'd be hella bored.
