Puffer Coat + Leather Pants

I use to hate wearing turtlenecks because I could not stand the feeling of excess fabric on my neck. However, I can’t get enough of them now as an adult. They are like a low-key scarf attached to your sweater; at least, that’s how I look at it.

These leather pants are actually one of my top and favorite thrift store finds. I’ve actually worn them a couple of times but I have to be honest, once it gets too cold, they’re not that warm. I did keep warm with this beautiful olive green merino wool turtle neck that I purchased BNWT from Goodwill. I wanted a more casual look so I kept things simple by wearing a pair of leopard print booties and my gap puffer jacket.

Floral Booties & Puffer Jacket

Happy New Year! I wish everyone a wonderful, prosperous, healthy + lots of wealth New Year! I stayed home New Year’s Eve because it was unbearably cold outside and I had no interest in freezing. Now that the New Year is here, the season of layers has officially arrived; puffer jackets, coats, scarves, mittens, gloves and dry skin. When I arrived to Charlotte my winter wardrobe was very minimal but now that I’ve been here for two winter seasons, I’ve definitely improved my winter wardrobe. One of my favorite winter pieces is this puffer jacket; it’s lightweight and warm.

I started the year by wearing the 2018 Pantone Color of the year, Ultra Violet. This was definitely not on purpose, just a mere coincidence but I figure I pointed it out. I purchased this J.Crew Lamb Wool sweater at my local Goodwill for $4.00, and I’ve never been happier about a purchase. It was so cold outside that if it wasn’t for this sweater and puffer jacket, I might have frozen. So far, the puffer jacket is probably one of my favorite purchases this season. I will probably be wearing this one a lot this season, so stay tuned. I am also not over wearing velvet, so here’s another (more simple) outfit. I purchased these velvet boyfriend cropped pants from the Gap and they have a more relaxed fit to them. I wanted to add a little bit of pizzazz to this outfit so I added the floral booties, fishnet pearl socks and this gold clutch.

P.S. I realized that I am wearing lot of Gap pieces but that is just a coincidence.
