The holidays may be over, but that doesn’t mean the pretty clothing has to go by the wayside!  Winter wardrobes can start to feel a bit drab when the cold weather persists, but adding some embellishments to your basics is an easy way to update your look.

Hi everyone!  I’m sorry I have been so M.I.A. here on the blog but we’ve had a lot going on recently with a sick kiddo (who thankfully is doing much better), a stream of out-of-town visitors and gearing up to host Thanksgiving.  Luckily, this nice weather has been giving us a chance to get outside and enjoy some fresh air, play in the park and finally rake up all of our leaves.  We had a total of 16 giant bags of leaves from just our front yard!  Yeesh.

With this nice weather I have been loving that I don’t have to wear tights just yet!  Don’t get me wrong I love tights but since I dress up at the office and typically wear dresses and skirts to work, I feel like I live most of the fall, winter and even some spring months in tights.  So it’s nice not to be forced into them with the delayed onset of cold weather here in Denver.

My trusty pleated midi skirt has been on frequent rotation this fall and I like to pair it with bare legs and pumps or pointed flats.  I’ll mix in boots (and tights) as it continues to get colder.  I’ve been donning pleats since I went to Catholic school, and I love that they’re really back in style now that I’m an adult.
