This is the worst.winter.ever. I’ve had 4 groups of people push my rear-wheel drive BMW out of ice/snow… I’ve slipped on the ice twice and gotten lovely brown bruises on my knee and butt… My UGGs are getting way too much wear (gasp! the horror!)… This winter just needs to end. Don’t let the door hit ya on the way out. SERIOUSLY.
So when it decided to reach the 30’s last week and the 40’s/50’s this week, I decided I am over this Winter crap and am ready to start wearing my Winter-to-Spring transition items, namely my printed and ankle-length pants. Granted, it will probably be 20 degrees again next week but I am trying to enjoy it while I can.
On the left is an outfit I actually wore last week (you may have seen it on Instagram). I broke out the ankle length pants last week (pretty into these black and white printed pants from Gap – love the fit and pattern), but since it was still cold, I paired them with a pair of ankle length boots, so only an inch or so of my leg was sticking out. The other two outfits I don’t own but have my eyes set on both of the pairs of pants. In the middle, when it gets a bit warmer, I feel a little more sporty with my ankle/foot-showing-abilities and go for the full pump (aside from the commute to work, when I am still wearing boots so I don’t slip and break an ankle). On the right – the striped pants are too fun to pass off, and since Gap always has 40% off sales, I could pick these pants up for only about $35. Sold!
Are you starting to transition your wardrobe yet? What are you itching to wear again over the next few months?
