The other day it was freezing, the next day is supposed to be in the 70s and sunny. That’s the joy of March, my birthday month! One day it’s warm and sunny and the next, a snow storm. As a kid I’d get so upset when it’d snow on my birthday. It meant I had to move my party to a different day. My mom would have to remake cupcakes for my class. One year it was snowing so much that we lost power during the party, which I believe was at McDonalds and was in celebration of the pivotal sixth birthday.

 This outfit, it’s pretty perfect for this time of year. The sweater is light. The hat instantly adds warmth and can be taken off as quickly as these temps change. As for the eye-catching necklace, this baby livens up the look with interesting color. Take note: some of the stones have a marbled effect going on — so cool! The placement of the stones and shapes give me the feel of florals in an artistic, abstract way. I also love it layered with a favorite vintage choker I’ve had for a couple years.

 { Style Tips }

1. Top it off with a beanie and bling. I’m always cold and jewelry can really be that pop of personality to make your outfit feel fun and unique to you.

2. Don’t match. The unexpected is extra special. I didn’t spent time agonizing over the fact that the boots are brown and the sweater stripes are black. I wore it because I liked it. End of story.

3. Get comfy. Clothes are meant to be lived in. When I shop I pretty much only buy things that I just want to live in — like jeans, flat boots, a comfy sweater and a beanie (so I won’t have to fuss over my hair). I’d rather spend money on pieces I’ll love to live in rather than just stare at in my closet. That’d be no fun.

That’s way cute, and you’re so right, sometimes not matching is perfect just the way it ends up. I was looking at my brick red pants today and wasn’t happy with the black shoes I paired with them thinking that I wish I had some grey oxfords… but my wife already complains about how many shoes I have so there you go…

You know it! Not matching can be more interesting and actually help you create new outfit ideas that you may not have thought of before if you were confided to matching.

So did you end up getting grey oxfords?

Love your blog….love your ensemble du jour! (Although I REALLY love the top you were wearing on air…I wore that top in lemongrass with olive Layers tank, Lounge Vest, Dark Elm leggings, bronzy metallic shoes & my DB faux fur hooded jacket (IT WAS 24 degrees!). I’m in Fargo, ND. My darling daughter lives and works in NYC!! (My home before she was born). I think she’s about your age (just guessing) – and she started loving LOGO when I showed up at her house in college wearing a cotton/cashmere top. She is “uber tiny” so clothing getting “lost” from my closet is not an option….but it’s such a joy to shop for her, knowing she’ll love what I choose!
I AM SO HAPPY YOU’RE WITH LORI!! *This is the start of something big!* <3
