outfit post: recent shopping purchases - january

I've had a bit of fun shopping over the past month and this post is a rundown of things that I bought:

1.  Blue ("lapis") Shirt Dress - 
Picked this dress up as a work dress option to wear with my new black fleece tights during chilly months. But I think the dusky blue color will look great in spring as well. Ended up wearing it (and loving it) for leading a client workshop in Ohio last week.
2. Windowpane Blouse
I love the windowpane print but don't own anything that has it. Finally pulled the trigger and picked one up from Old Navy.
3. Black Leggings & Fleece Tights
I bought both black leggings (almost pants) and fleece tights (winter dress warmth layers) this month. I'm loving wearing the leggings with big sweaters and boyfriend cardigans. And the tights were lovely and warm for my 23-degrees-outside work trip to Ohio. (Only thing with the tights is I was borderline between sizes and I went up - and during the day they sorta slid down in the crotch area. Think I need to get the smaller size so they fit properly.)
4. Cowl Neck Sweater
Picked this sweater up on a whim at Target. So cozy. Didn't realize I had a closet-gap of tunic length sweaters until I bought these leggings and needed to cover my behind. Feels like I'm wearing pjs which is basically my goal in life for getting dressed. 
5. Double Pendant Necklace
Pretty necklace with purple & pale pink stones from Loft. Fun pretty necklace for work outfits.
6. Navy Work Pants
Needed some basic workhorse pants for all my travel over this month and next for my job. While I can technically fit into my pre-pregnancy sized pants they are still a bit snug. So I got a pair one size up (Marisa fit from Loft) so I can feel totally comfortable and confident in all my meetings 
7. Purple Tank
Cute basic top to layer under cardigans for work and hopefully on its own this summer.
8. Burgundy Sheath Dress
I bought a version of this dress over the summer and I wore it a ton. So when I saw it in fall/winter colors on sale I decided to buy a second dress. I love the pattern and the mix of colors provides a ton of cardigan options! When you love something go with it!
9. Cableknit Cape 
I am loving wearing this fun sweater poncho/cape I bought a month ago. It is amazing. It's like a Christmas miracle. It seems impossible that I'm allowed wear a blanket in public that hides my holiday chub AND still look presentable let alone trendy and cute! Love.


  1. You got some great pieces! I've been wanting a windowpane shirt for ages...

  2. Love the dress! What a great piece from Lands End!

  3. I love the Lands End dress, but I think I need a size 0 (I've been wearing an XS in dresses) and the smallest they have is a 2. I've never bought their stuff so afraid to get stuck with it if it doesn't fit.
