Transition Fall To Winter In Your Wardrobe

While it is still technically fall in New England, this past weekend felt like winter! I had to pull out my winter jacket and quickly transition my wardrobe for the cold weather. I found the perfect combination of pieces in my closet that could easily be made into a winter outfit.

Hat: Primark (Similar)      Shirt: Gap          Vest: London boutique (Similar here or here)

Jeans: Joe’s Jeans             Shoes: Adidas

Cranberry is a color that I love in the fall, but have realized looks beautiful in the winter months too. I paired this light, long-sleeve sweater under a fuzzy, black faux-fur vest. I wore a simple pair of stretch, crop denim with my Adidas. I also added this cranberry pom-pom hat for warmth and to match my shirt. In my opinion, I think this color is gorgeous and should be a staple in everyone’s closet and can be paired together for a monochromatic look too. My absolute favorite part of this look happened to be my furry vest. Vests are also a a huge portion of my closet and perfect for the transition from fall to winter. I love taking a simple shirt, like the cranberry one above, and throwing on a fuzzy vest to make the look more complete. I find that it can be perfect for a night out or a casual look for everyday. They are also easy to pair under a winter or wool coat.

The Turtleneck and Moto Leggings That Will Save Your Cold Day

When the weekend hit with a 29 degree temperature and a wind that was cold enough to cut through your skin, I knew it was about time to break out my trusty turtleneck collection. But on a day spent holiday shopping and bracing the cold, I knew I also needed a trusty pair of leggings to ease my flexibility.

My turtleneck is from Primark, which for all my fellow Massachusetts folks, are located in Boston and the Burlington Mall. My leggings are a worn black pair of moto leggings from Nordstrom with ribbed detail-in the thigh and calf. Shoes are from Steve Madden and are my favorite (and the comfiest).

On a day like today, this was a perfect outfit. It was easy and a great way to layer a scarf, heavy jacket, even another sweater, while trying to welcome the cold with open arms!

Primark Mania!

Primark Mania!

It has been so long since I have done one of these blog posts! Gosh, I miss the traditional blogs I used to do! I promise, I will be doing them more often! I actually did not even think I would be posting a blog today. My original plan was to take a picture of my #OOTD for Instagram and advertise my latest YouTube videos. But after seeing the photos my bf took of me on his IPhone, I knew these had to be for more than just Insta. It is actually perfect timing too because the first Primark store in the U.S. opened up near me, and I couldn’t be more excited. So why not talk about the mania it is causing?!

Back on topic, I went yesterday (the second day of it being open) hesitant to what I would find. I did not know the store very well, just that the prices are nearly too good to be true. IT WAS MAGICAL! There are four floors that include women’s and men’s clothing, a kids section, shoes, accessories, home, lingerie, pajamas and plenty more that I probably didn’t see. I was quite overwhelmed to say the least. But after giving a pep talk, and pushing my way through the crowds, I was pleased by what I found. The styles are very up to date with trends we are seeing for this fall: simple, chunky sweaters, blanket scarves, chambray, suede, and ripped denim. They offer a variety of colors and sizes and the prices are to die for. I purchased two items: a checkered chambray blouse and this long blush sweater. I am so in love with this sweater! It is the comfiest thing I own and so versatile! Talk about being a beautiful color too!

For this cool, crisp saturday, I paired it with some ripped denim, a sleeveless, white blouse, some flat sandals and my favorite reversible bag. It made for an easy and cozy pairing!

For a girl who is a newbie to Primark, I am pleasantly surprised and very happy with the new style department store.

Until next time!
