Sweater leggings: Micaela Greg

Micaela Greg Fragment leggings at Myth + Symbol

I'm the kind of person who buys sweater leggings in fairisle patterns while in the Christmas mood only to return them three days later. I have several issues with wearing patterned bottoms, especially leggings that are in a thick knit, and one of them is that they often resemble sleepwear. However, these Fragment leggings by Micaela Greg look like they might be suited to both work and play. I can see them pairing nicely with an oversized pullover post-holiday feasting as well as with a silk or linen tunic for office hours.

J. Crew Silk Ruffle Top in Beanstalk Stripe

I'm at the point where I need to donate a few of my coats, but I'm not sure I need to replace any. If I knew I were spending the next 5 - 10 years in a cold climate, I would love something in a rich color as well as a snuggly soft coat like Steven Alan's Delphine. I've found myself grabbing for my Etoile Isabel Marant Baki more and more these days because it's so soft and unstructured.

I've also been experiencing a mall-induced fashion crisis. So many photo floral prints at the mall, but I'm not sure it's really my kind of look. However, I did pick up this J.Crew silk top with a floral stripe pattern that has worked well as a teaching top. The Steven Alan Martine floral print seems like another nice variation on the theme, but I can't decide if I really need more than one of this type.

Two Blue Dresses

Lauren Moffatt Uma Snap Dress

Steven Alan Thalia Dress

I own more black now than I ever did, but my heart belongs to the blues. Navy, cobalt, turquoise. Is it any surprise that my school uniform was dark and light blue?
