I’ve fallen into a bit of a rut lately, recycling the same pieces over and over (short-sleeved gray sweater, check; fleece-lined leggings, check; puffy vests, check). I am always in favor of mixing and matching, but I feel like I’ve taken it to a bit of an extreme. I think I’m so over the cold that whenever I get up in the morning, I’m just automatically drawn to whatever I think will keep me warmest; unfortunately, I haven’t invested in as many sub-zero pieces as I apparently should have (you live in Georgia, they said. It’s hot there, they said).
So, hopefully this never-ending winter will, in fact, soon end, and I can start rotating between the other 9/10ths of my closet, and stop with these same 4 or 5 pieces. In the meantime, here is my other puffy vest (you may remember the blue and white one that is so popular among the 60+ set). I’ve had it for several years (it was a great Christmas gift from my brother many years ago), and while I’m wearing it a little more often than I’d like, I am glad to now be getting some good use out of it.
And, let’s talk about my jeans. I LOVE the wash on these. It’s so unexpected; white, without actually being white. I got them at Target, using the Target Cartwheel app (if you haven’t downloaded this app yet, you need to do it ASAP. Free coupons; I bought these with 20% off all clearance apparel! You will thank me, I assure you.).
