Wintry Mix

December 12, 2014

Los Angeles, CA.

These past few weeks have been a bit of a blur.  Cramming in as much as possible before the close of another year has caused my blogging to take a bit of a backseat and so for that, I apologize! 

Today, however, I am back! And I decided to mix up my go-to pencil skirt look with the addition of a quilted sweatshirt top.  Tucking chunkier, textured sweaters and knits into sleek, fitted bottoms is a trend that has been popping up all over the place this season and so I figured I would give it a try.  It’s fun to give your workweek style a change-up, especially when it can be as easy as adding texture!  This look, while still pretty basic (and comfy) actually scored me quite a few compliments around the office!

Keep in mind that you have to be careful with materials that are too bulky, as they can make for an unflattering combo.  I found that thinner tops like this one from the Gap, pairs really well.  Keep the look dressy by adding a pair of sassy pumps and a statement necklace and you will easily take your basic office getup from typical to winter-chic.
