Winter Fashion Essentials

Moving to a colder climate just in time for winter probably wasn’t the smartest decision, especially because I had no clothes prepared for such a bitter winter. Over the past couple of months I’ve been purchasing wisely to ensure I have something to wear when the temperature drops to disturbingly cold levels. I have to admit it’s been a little hard sticking to my plan of only buying classic pieces that will be transeasonal and within my budget.

With the belief anyone can pull off the Boyfriend trend, Target challenged me to create an outfit using one of their Boyfriend pieces. At first I thought they were ridiculous because I haven’t found denim to look good on me in over 3 years but I was up for a challenge. After all, my style icon, Rachel Bilson, can be seen in a boyfriend-style of denim almost every week so it has been on my shopping list for quite sometime. Challenge accepted! Continue Reading
