Spring is SO close, yet so far away…

I can’t believe that I’m admitting this, but I’ve actually been enjoying the cold spell that's been wreaking havoc on most of the east coast. WHO AM I?!?! While I’m a self-proclaimed summer girl through and through, there’s something to be said about the final push of blustery, cold air before spring takes over. (Although, don’t be mistaken, Virginia has become notorious for its unsettled sprinter-like weather.) Not to mention that it legitimately gives me an excuse to reach for all my beloved winter sweaters at least a handful more times.

Speaking of #sweaterweather, can we please talk about this happiness-inducing ROYGBIV number? It was an Anthropologie find from a new-to-me brand called Essentiel Antwerp, and it's basically the equivalent of a very stylish security blanket. While the oversized fits gives it a boho-chic feel, it's the Instagram-approved rainbow stripes that initially won me over. I kid you not — I can't wear it w/o smiling ear to ear. 

How I styled my trophy sweater: Typically with skinny jeans and smoking slippers, but I've also teamed it alongside a denim zip-front mini and suede ankle boots for a girlier vibe. These snaps were taken post-bomb cyclone craziness, but trust that it was nippy out — hence the need to document this look on two separate outings.

I don't know how y'all feel about scrunchies (err, cringe much?), but I'm all about this resurgence trend. Literally the moment I caught wind that Mansur Gavriel was going to be making scrunchies — three words: vintage Italian silk — I knew I was on board. Though a far cry from MG's perfectly elegant and non-fussy styling, my inner '90s kid couldn't turn down the chance to rock an extra AF sequin scrunchie. And so, a high-ponytail, it was.

Shop the look: stripe sweater (different, but I like this one for spring!) | frayed hem jeans (similar) | velvet loafers (similar) | sequin scrunchie (similar)
