Statement

After a ridiculously gorgeous Monday, yesterday was a blustery, chillier Chicago day – one of the last little remnants of winter (hopefully!). So it seemed like a good time to break out a wool skirt and turtleneck combo before retiring those pieces for the season. Fashion logic, everyone.

For this shot, I joked I should do the “cliche blogger pose” and it ended up being one of my favorite photos of myself ever/all my profile pictures. Thanks, Nicky!

This necklace was actually a graduation present from my aunt and I absolutely love it. The tortoise makes it surprisingly versatile and I get compliments every time I wear it. While it’s sadly currently sold out, BaubleBar has similar styles and – who knows! – it may make a return someday.

This combo is pretty much my go-to “I want to look polished without thinking too hard about it or being uncomfortable.” Bonus? It’s essentially a style uniform in that you can swap out similar pieces to make it work in different seasons. For example, I have a striped cotton version of that skirt that I could pair with chambray or a long sleeve t-shirt in warmer weather. Add the necklace and some pretty flats and boom: polished and comfortable all year round.
