Tucson is finicky in the winter. When I walk to class at 8 am it’s 30 degrees, and when I get out at noon, it’s 70 degrees. To be completely honest, when I did this photo shoot, it was 29 degrees outside, meaning I have a few more winter looks coming your way. This look is one of my recent favorites, combining a cute crop top with high waisted jeans for those warm afternoons and a peacoat to get through the colder morning. We call it “situational dressing.”
I used to be a bright colors kind of gal, but I’ve recently been moving into a lot of black, white, and neutrals, just like a lot of other bloggers out there. My reasons for the switch? Everyone looks good in those colors and I have to downsize my closet. I can no longer own my favorite pieces in every single color. Plus, black goes with everything. Maybe that’s why this look is black on black on black.
I love this look, partially because it’s so comfy and partially because it’s the perfect mix of structured and cute with menswear inspired pieces and dainty details.
The jewelry is all from Favor Jewelry, which specializes in cute little pieces like this. Personally, I love them. This ladder necklace is my current favorite, but I also haven’t taken off this dainty knot ring. I got another piece, a little gold hair tie cover, and it certainly spices up a simple side braid (which you all know I can rock), but it’s sadly not shown in this photo shoot. I have a few more spring outfits planned with these gorgeous pieces, catch them on the blog soon. They are seriously perfect for spring.

So anyway, I’m as done with winter as you are, and I can’t wait to start getting back to some warm weather outfits. Like I said, two more outfits and it’ll be less tights and jackets and more dresses and skirts. I’m so ready. Bring on the sunshine!
