When it comes to purchasing behavior in the fashion world, versatility & practicality are the first priorities for me. i always ask the same four questions whenever I'm considering a new purchase...
1) can i wear this with at least 5 existing articles of clothing in my closet?
2) how many times will i REALLY wear this?
3) is it practical for my lifestyle?
4) can it be worn to work and a nice dinner?
If i can answer "yes" to those questions, then chances are high that article of clothing is coming home to mama. the reason behind these four silly questions is part minimalism - i have enough going on in my day to day to have to worry about picking out my outfit - and partly that my job requires quality/durability/versatility, since we're on construction sites majority of the week. sometimes we have to meet with clients or for scheduled social time with friends, but a few hours earlier we were knee deep inside a recently demo'ed wall accessing the plumbing and electrical, so that's why question #4 is pretty important.
Fashion isn't what you're wearing, but how you're wearing it. the simplicity of my style is at it's prime during autumn and winter - which is funny, because i loathe the latter. albeit absolute misery as the cold whips its way inside of my skeleton, the silver lining means i can rock a sweater like it's nobodies business. sweaters are one of those pieces that know how to mold to my tiny frame. i can wear them with ripped jeans, tight jeans, skirts and tailored pants. each wear could have a unique personality that still enables me to be comfortable, warm and versatile. for all you ladies out there thinking about your winter wear, here are my top 5 sweaters this season!
i definitely want to hear where you're shopping, as well as what you're wearing this winter! leave us a note in the comments!
