Are you all buried under feet of snow like we are here in Connecticut? Well, before this massive storm hit… I put together one of my favorite looks of the season (so far). Yes, you called it… another neutral outfit. I’ve been slowly building my collection of neutral pieces that are so easy to mix and match together that it almost makes it impossible not to grab them when putting together a look. This newest Chloe bag is for a project I’m working on with Bluefly (more on that soon) but I couldn’t resist pairing it with this camel colored ensemble.
Another thought that popped into my head when creating this post is how much of a high-low shopper I’ve become over the years. As I approach my 30’s (ahhh), I’ve realized the importance of investment pieces that I’ll be able to get a ton of use out of. I’m one of those people who will spend the money if I’m certain the item will get it fair share of wear (say that five times fast), and I’m happy I’ve held true to that on all my “splurge pieces.” My motto here on Oh So Glam has always been that you don’t need to be decked out in designer duds to feel GLAM, but I’ve also made sure not to waste a ton of money on trendy “it” pieces that might not cost so much, but they’re essentially worthless after a few wears. That’s not to say that you can’t find some great staples without spending a lot, but it’s definitely a balancing act and I’m learning as I go. Denim is usually something I tend to splurge on, but these $50 jeans get people every time. Paired with the right things, I’ve been asked where they’re from and people are surprised to hear they aren’t designer and upwards of $200. A great lesson to always mix and match my friends!
Just when we thought it may be a somewhat mild winter, we’re in the middle of the biggest blizzard of the season. Since I’m currently stuck in the house by the fire, I’m craving some winter essentials. I want nothing more than to be bundled up in oversized layers like this ruffle sweater and comfy jeans. I’ve been so into the over-the-knee trend (this year more than any), so these grey boots have been on my wishlist for months! I’ve also been stocking up on my scarf collection, they never seem to go out of style and you can wear them year to year. This cashmere scarf will be coming along with me to NYFW and a similar fur snood!
I’m not normally a pink girl… you wouldn’t know it from looking at this blog design, but it’s not really a color I incorporate into my wardrobe a ton. However, blush and muted pinks are definitely something I can get on board with. This outfit reminded me of a similar one I put together during the summer months… a hint of girlie but with an edge. What can I say? Rips and rockstuds are my jam.
