This month is the first month of consistent cold in Charlottesville, but there’s still enough variation that it’s worthwhile to consider wearing light layers rather than heavy, constricting garments. I’ve been really into black recently, but I always try to brighten it up with color or something light, like gray stripes or a denim jacket.
As it so happens, I am now the proud owner of a secondhand “jean” jacket that’s actually made of a thick, stretchy cotton blend. It’s a lot more comfortable than standard denim and I plan to wear it as the last layering piece over a top and sweater to keep the wind out. I also used up the rest of my birthday ebay gift card on a secondhand pair of knee high boots. The ones I bought are brown, but they have a similar silhouette to the ones above. I’ll wear them soon for an outfit post.
One of these things is not like the other: sooo, I can’t really wear sandals in this weather, but I scooped up some lovely Made in Italy sandals at the J. Crew Warehouse (read my thoughts on the ethics of the sale here) sale a few weeks ago and I’m daydreaming about wearing them. I guess I’ll be spending the next 5 or 6 months gazing at them longingly as I put on my boots each morning.
I’m still after the perfect pair of frames, but I’ll have to wait a few more months since I don’t have eye insurance.
