January in the Midwest can be a bit brutal – especially when you start the year off with a tropical vacation. The excitement of the holidays is over, temperatures always dip below freezing and without snow, the brown grass can be a bit depressing to look at. In our house, the first month of the year is almost always dedicated to sweatpants and early nights. No complaints.
But when cabin fever hits and I need a glass of red wine and a warm appetizer, getting ready always feels good. My style simplifies in the dead of winter, so playing with textures and prints becomes vital to making an outfit feel special. Velvet has been my favorite trend all season and when Romwe sent this amazing floral dress in the beautiful fabric, I couldn’t wait to find an excuse to wear it.
Wearing a dress over jeans may sound odd at first, but with the right lengths and fit, it works great for a chic layered look. Plus, it keeps you nice and warm! These skinny jeans from Banana Republic have been a staple for me this year. They fit tight around the ankle and knees so no bunching occurs when tucking them into boots or when wearing them under a long tunic or dress.
