Sucker Punch the Winter Blues

It’s right about this time of year when conversations start including the phrase, “I’m so ready for spring.” These are not conversations I participate in, but I’ll nod and be cordial. For me, it’s about this time of year that I truly settle into appreciating all the little things about winter.

Like the fact that I don’t have to paint my toenails, or worry about my tan. Also I’m settling back into my love of hot drinks. My first trimester had me nauseous at the thought of them!

Regardless of where you fall on the winter love/hate scale, I’ve put together a list of things that will help power surge you through the rest of the season looking cute. All of which can be found at West Town Mall!

First up is this plaid vest from GAP. I like that it includes softer gray colors which means it won’t look so “winter harsh” on those colder spring days. It’s also going to go with a lot and add a great pop of pattern if you like to wear a lot of solid colors.

A mesh panel infinity scarf from Aero (formerly known as Aeropostale) is just the thing to cozy into when it’s cold outside. But I love how soft and airy it is. It makes me feel like I’ve clicked on a “glow filter” around my face. And who wouldn’t want that?!

This is the first time I’ve written about these Piko tops from Fiore, but it’s not going to be the last! These tops are AH-MAZING. So soft, so drapey, so wonderful. I can’t wait for my baby bump to show just so I can hide it with one of these (ha, that sounds so counter-intuitive, but it’s where I’m at).

Gosh these gorgeous Nine West Boots from Belk have me re-thinking my resolve to not buy and more boots for a while. I’m so in love with the fold-over look this year. I feel like it makes your legs look teeny tiny in comparison. These bad boys are on sale AND would totally work when paired with lighter spring tops, so you may have to fight me for them.

Garage calls this the Essential Parka for a reason – it will keep you warm in the winter, and this army green color plays so well with bold spring colors!

Finally, what’s a list of things to perk up your winter wardrobe without a silver sweater from Banana Republic? It’s a list that lacks pizzazz that’s what. A great metallic thread like this is such a fun departure from the wools and knits we’ve been wearing. Try one out and pair it with other fun textures like corduroy!
