Okay, winter’s not really ending yet. At least not in Oregon. We woke up to snow on the ground yesterday. Thankfully it was only temporary. Though winter’s end may only be figurative at this point. I decided to go ahead and rock this spring-leaning look – one that includes three of my current closet favorites all together. I love remixing my beloved items, every which way I can. Stylistically, I think it’s more interesting than having a giant collection, plus I love the creative stretching involved.
I paired the recently-released wide leg cropped pants by Everlane with my favorite sweater by Jamie + the Jones. Black pants often feel too serious for my style, but these are uniquely shaped and are cropped just enough to feel lighthearted. I really like wearing them because the fabric is soft and stretchy, but still thick. I am toying with the idea of taking out the hems, just to make them a little more interesting (and I’ll admit, Kamm-ish), but haven’t decided anything for sure yet.
This sweater is one of my most highly-repeated wardrobe items since I got it on Christmas Eve. I wear it at least once a week. The only thing that I don’t like about it is that I feel like I am going to get it dirty when I cook, because it’s kind of drape-y in the front. Thankfully someone smart invented aprons. I love the wide cut, but my favorite part is the nubby texture of this sweater. The woven cotton is thick and super soft. Can you tell I like soft clothes? The clogs round out this trifecta of favorites. I put them on anytime I want to feel smartly-styled, or just have pretty feet to look at. The mid-heel height is perfect for my lifestyle.
I’ll be sharing my last few winter outfits this week, and part of next. Then, I’m excited to share some of my thoughts on spring with you guys . Including a check-in on my current closet goals, and an update on how I’m doing at maintaining a lean closet.
Wide Leg Cropped Pants | c/o Everlane | The black pair is currently waitlisted through mid-April, but there are a few sizes currently available in the bone and blue. If you’re looking for more feedback on size and fit, both Lee and Grechen also reviewed these. I thought they ran pretty true to size, but it sounds like some others didn’t. I’d love to hear from you, did you buy a pair of these? Did you size up or down?
Necklace | c/o Favor Jewelry | One of my favorite necklaces to wear, especially in the summer time with dresses. Handmade in Portland.
