Did this snow day completely ruin anyone else’s weekend plans?! We were supposed to go to Indy for the day on Saturday, and I was really looking forward to seeing some friends, but I’ll be honest, I feel like the snow day in was exactly what we needed.
Cassidy and I were able to make some progress on unpacking and organizing the apartment, but still balance it out with enjoying some much anticipated relaxation as well. It was fun getting to see our neighborhood blanketed in snow and so many people still out and sloshing through for a bite to eat. We brought food back to our apartment, basked in the view, and watched movies. It was definitely exactly what we needed.
It’s no secret I believe details make the outfit, as I’m sure a lot of folks do. Take away the fur on the jacket, the velvet laces on the jeans, the tassel on the bag, and maybe even the print from the shoes, and you’re left with a very simple look. Finding versatile pieces is important, but building up some basics with a little something extra can take an outfit to another level. Texture is a great way to add interest yet maintain a classic feel, especially if prints are intimidating. Leopard is basically a neutral, but an easy way to introduce a print to your wardrobe. If you’re stepping out of your comfort zone, the key is it doesn’t have to be all at once. Start by adding in one element. This look has a lot of little something extras, but incorporating one new extra with your neutrals, makes a look more unique, and gradually builds a versatile wardrobe to pair back with basic staples.
