Ah, another week ahead of us. Even though Monday's are no one's favorite, at least it can make it feel like we are inching closer to something we have to look forward to, like an upcoming trip, a fun brunch next weekend, or maybe a few packages arriving this week! I have been trying to have a more positive attitude about Monday's but it's really hard. The weekends are a time when I feel like I come alive and I can do whatever the hell I want. It's hard to give that up for a rigorous schedule and all the things I "have" to do. Eh, I'm working on it. Well, progress over perfection right?
Pink has been on major repeat for me lately. While I've always loved the color, I am pretty picky when it comes to which shades of pink I am willing to incorporate into my wardrobe. I'm sure it sounds weird to hear that I only buy certain shades of pink but I just know what I like and what I will actually wear. Millennial Pink, aka the most gorgeous shade of light pink that you've ever seen, has been huge this year and I have been completely enamored with it for the past year. I've always been drawn to this shade of pink but now that it's everywhere, more designers are coming up with fantastic new ways to wear it, which means I can add more pieces to my pink clothes rotation. Score!
Yes, I'm wearing my Teddy Bear coat again and guess what? I don't feel bad about it one bit. A couple weeks ago, I polled y'all on my Instagram stories about whether or not you guys wanted to see more day to day looks on the blog. So many people messaged me saying that they are dying to see more casual looks and the majority vote on the poll was 85% yes! Since I truly care about bringing content to my little corner of the internet that my beloved readers want to see, I listened.
Winter sure has reared it's head here in SF. This week has been so gloomy and rainy, which I really can't compare to the below freezing temps on the East Coast thanks to the Bomb Cyclone, but guys, it's freaking cold here. I actually run pretty cold naturally (my hands and feet are always cold) so I usually base how cold it is on how Jonny reacts to the weather. This week, he has been wearing fuzzy socks at night so I know he's feeling those low temps as well and it's not JUST me complaining of how cold it is.
Universally, flattering denim can be a very difficult thing for women to find. There are so many different cuts, washes, lengths, and rises (oh my!). Let's just say, finding jeans that not only flatter but also pair well with other pieces in your wardrobe is not an easy task. Lucky for us, J.Jill seems to have come up with a solution! Before this pair, I have never owned a pair of denim leggings. They seemed to have a pretty negative connotation attached to them since "denim" and "leggings" don't really seem like they would go well together. However, J.Jill's denim leggings seemed to have upped the ante as they look like your favorite pair of structured dark denim jeans combined with the most comfortable feeling of wearing your favorite pair of soft leggings.
