The weather here has been so crazy the last couple of weeks that we have had several snow days, so there haven’t been many outfits of mine to speak of. I’ve mostly been cuddled up at home in my robe and sweatpants doing homework. It’s also been a great time to do some online shopping. So today I’m bringing you my first ever inspiration board with some designer duds on sale at Piperlime. I don’t think these items will last.
Hope wherever you are you’re staying warm and safe!
While it hasn’t been as bad here as in many other places, we’ve had a couple of snow and ice-filled days, hence the slightly laid back office look and wellies. I hope you all have been able to stay safe and warm through this wintry weather.
I’ve missed some great opportunities to comment on the awesomeness that is happening in the wonderful world of fashion – it’s New York Fashion Week! The start of fashion month where designers around the world are presenting their fall collections. There’ve been some really exciting presentations that I’ve been following on various online platforms; here are my favorites:
Oh goodness please excuse my hair, it was quite windy when we were taking photos. . .Other than the windiness though, this weather has been lovely! I didn’t even really need my winter coat, this jacket from target did just the trick.
I imagine almost everyone has got pattern mixing down by now, but if you’ve been hesitant to try it, just remember to keep the different patterns in the same colors. My top is cream and red polka dot which echoes some of the same colors in the jacket.
Also, if you’re in the mood for a sale, Kate Spade is having a surprise 75% off sale for the next 48 hours. If you see something you like, don’t hesitate! A beautiful hot pink tote I was looking at this morning is already sold out.
I love this jacket. It seriously goes with everything. Jeans, skirts, flowy dresses, black skinny pants. It’s awesome. And it’s appropriate year round. This one is old, but here are some other options: Banana Republic, J.Crew, Gap. I also really like this vest from Banana. This jacket is so versatile, I’d go so far as to say everyone needs one in their closet.
It has been an insane couple of weeks. Tons of homework, lack of sleep. Oh the joys of Grad School. Nevertheless, I got some super exciting news last week. I received my acceptance letter into law school, and they are offering me a full ride! (Also, yes I am crazy and will likely be in school for the rest of my life.) I could not be more thrilled.
Anyway, I love a loose drapey blouse, and this color is perfect because I am a huge UK Wildcat Fan. Go Blue! Also, if you are in need of some black skinnies, these pants from Banana are amazing. I have two pair, and I’d wear them every single day if that was a socially acceptable practice. . . I also have a pair in a window-pane print from last year, which may or may not be making an appearance from the blog soon.
