After a few days of warmer temps we're back to bitter cold winter weather. I did it again...I accidentally left my house yesterday without a coat. Big mistake. I didn't get far though...my son ended up falling asleep in the backseat 5 minutes in. The boy was more tired than I realized! I made one quick stop at the gas station (and FROZE as I filled up the car) and then decided to head back home. That was the quickest outing ever! I think I just need to keep a coat in the car at all times...this CA girl is having a hard time remembering she lives in Ohio sometimes!
One thing I have been remembering to wear a lot of lately are scarves! They are so warm and cozy and can add a pop of color to an outfit in no time!

I'm still on the lookout for a more sturdy denim shirt. The one I wore above is a thinner material, a more appropriate weight for spring probably, but I made it work. I've tried some heavier denim shirts on at J Crew at Madewell recently and they have all either been too short, too baggy, or both. I'm looking for something not too short and fitted! If you have any suggestions, let me know!
So on my last trip to Anthropologie I was hoping to try on the Stripewise Chemise, but was disappointed when I found out my local store hadn't received it yet. I'd been eyeing it online from the moment it appeared and was anxious to see it in real life. Since they didn't have it, I did the next best thing...I ordered it. It finally arrived last week and I LOVE it!! It's really cute and comfortable and will be a perfect item to bring with me on our trip to England in March! Yes, I'm already thinking about my packing list! =)
(sorry, bad picture quality...it was raining out and there wasn't any good natural light when I took this picture)
I ordered the dress in an X-Small and the fit was great. The mid-section is ruched and can be moved around to your liking. It's not too bulky as the fabric isn't too thick so it falls pretty good. Although the fabric is on the thinner side, it's not see-through by any means. I'll still wear a slip with it anyways, out of habit. I read some reviews that said the dress was way too long on some, but it fell perfectly for me (I'm 5'6"). I could wear flats without it brushing the ground and wedges (as pictured above) without it looking too high water. All in all I give it a thumbs up and I'm excited to add it to my closet.
Have you tried on the Stripewise Chemise yet? What do you think?
Alrighty...off to get some things done around the house! Hope you have a great day!
