The Basics

With the start of the new year and many new additions to my closet, I decided this was the perfect outfit to showcase first. I've been really loving over sized sweaters and this one I recently picked up is easily my favorite thing in my closet, I refuse to take it off-- not literally, but you know what I mean. It's important to have basic key pieces that are quality, and investing in a neutral solid colored sweater is always a nice touch to your wardrobe. The thing I love most is the turtleneck sits casually, not swallowing up your neck or being overwhelmingly in your space.

Layering is ideal for colder weather, and it being winter I added a longer casual tee underneath. While some may argue it looks rather funny, I like the little detail that it adds to the whole look. Paring light wash denim is an easy way to brighten up your look, keeping the focus on other pieces.

Finding the right boot for fall and winter is tough. It took me a few months to settle on a pair that I thought fit my style and myself the best. These Doc Marten Chelsea boots were just what I needed, I definitely recommend them. They're casual enough for going out during the day, but have a shine to them that could be dressed up for a more formal occasion.

Winter coats are a must. This one isn't too long, or too short. Maybe wearing white in the winter isn't your thing, but I definitely took the risk. It adds a touch to the look making it complete.

I have been into bigger bags lately, mainly because they can carry everything I need, and the shape is different than a basic rectangle. These vintage rings are great for adding a bit of color, accessories are the perfect touch to any outfit, they can make or break it.
