whenever winter has come in the past, i find myself giving up on trying to dress for myself and give in to only dressing for warmth (i'm a BIG baby when it comes to being cold). i'm making a valiant effort this year to not sacrifice the way i want to dress only because a heavy jacket and winter accessories are thrown into the mix- i'm actually looking forward to the challenge of layering and mixing textures like i've never done before! my winter clothing collection is minimal to none- living in southern california for most of the past 6 years put a real damper on buying any true winter pieces- i just never saw the point to buying something i was so reluctant to wear, anyway. i can't wait to invest in some sweaters/jackets/tights/jeans/etc! slowly but surely i will accumulate an acceptable winter wardrobe. this anthropologie sweater is one of my only winter pieces- i LIVED in it last year!
