Winter is coming, winter is coming! While we all know I don’t really NEED anything new, here are some of the pieces I want to add to my closet this season. I’m going out of town this weekend, and will definitely be on the lookout for some of these items or something similar. Plus, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are quickly approaching, meaning so are the sales! We have to get ourselves Christmas presents too, right? 🙂
Velvet shoes, joggers, and tanks are everywhere right now, and for good reason. Velvet is warm, soft, and has an I-woke-up-like-this vibe. One of my favorite velvet items I have seen this season is this Missguided velvet bomber jacket, available from Asos. Best part? It’s ballerina pink: The color of the season! If you’re trying to ease yourself into the trend, Target has some amazing joggers in gray and blue velvet by Who What Wear. Unfortunately, they didn’t have my size at my local Target and I couldn’t get them- but it’s totally worth checking out. Check out this guide from Pinterest on some of the best velvet looks.
This gorgeous black lace maxi
For winter parties, cocktail dresses are great and fun- but they can get kind of boring. This dress is beautifully crafted, with intricate lace covering the entire dress. The slip just covers your chest, stomach, and upper thighs, which shows just enough skin. The deep V is also stunning! I’ve had my eye on this dress since I met Stefanie and Tracy of the Eleventh Gorgeous YouTube channel and Madison and Mallory boutique. Spoiler: They’re amazingly sweet and just as beautiful in real life. Anyway, I have wanted this dress ever since this online store opened, but every single time it gets restocked, it sells out! This lace maxi comes in black, pink, maroon, and periwinkle- all are equally stunning. I want the black one (because, black) and I will keep stalking this site until it is mine.
Work appropriate leggings
I own these leggings from Loft in grey and in burgundy, and they have changed my life. Not kidding. They are super thick to keep you warm and to suck you in, and you don’t have to worry about finding a sweater to cover your rear end. I bought a small (I’m 5’6, and a 4/6 in pants) and they are definitely snug, but comfortable. And, for once, they are long enough to wear booties and don’t ride up! Definitely, definitely, definitely recommend. No, they aren’t paying me to say this. I’m just a slave to these leggings.
Sweater for cold mornings or late nights
In the mornings, I like to throw on a sweater while I drink my coffee for a little extra coziness. This Free People sweater-kimono is perfect for that. If you’re going out, you don’t want a bulky jacket over your outfit. This piece is perfect for that, too. The fringe keeps this sweater from looking too much like the shawl your mom wore to that wedding that time, and the delicate fur collar gives it a little flair. Basically I don’t need any other reasons to buy this. I’m obsessed.
Sassy over-the-knee boots
Not your faux leather boots stashed in the back of the closet. These babies are suede with metal detailing, and a pointy toe. First of all, pointy toes are the key to my heart. Second, the metal details are precious. Third, there is an inside zipper so you don’t have to send 45 minutes tugging them on. I could wear these with denim shorts in the spring, a dress in the fall with a long cardigan, and tights and a skirt in the winter. They also seem like they are fitted through the leg and won’t fall down, which is a plus when wearing skirts. These are going on my Christmas list, like now.Follow
