When it comes to winter clothing, I have a pretty standard personal uniform. For work it’s black pencil skirts with a blouse (tucked in) paired with a cardigan, black opaque (always Country Road) tights and ballet flats or heels. For casual days it’s dark denim jeans with a blouse, a cardigan and ballet flats. Sensing a theme here? For nights out it’s either dark denim jeans with a nice blouse and a blazer or a black dress with opaque tights and heels. Nothing too out of the ordinary and luckily most of the pieces I own can be worked into any of these three categories. I decided to purchase a few new items for Winter because the GAP were having a big sale. And as I’m easily persuaded, I purchased the following –
Old Navy Women’s Printed Bow Tie Chiffon Top
– I am picturing this either tucked into a pencil skirt and paired with a cardigan and tights, or with jeans, a cardigan and ballet flats. I can make this work for the office and also for the weekend, so for $14.10 its not a bad option.
Old Navy Women’s Charmeuse 3/4 Tab Sleeve Top – This was just an easy piece to throw on with skinny jeans & flats for casual friday at work. Nothing too fancy.
GAP Ruffle Cascade Tank in Prussian Blue
– This is one of my favourite colours, and I especially love wearing it in winter. As with the blouse above, I can see this being versatile and could easily pair this with jeans or tucked into a pencil skirt.
GAP 1969 Skinny Jeggings – These look super comfortable and I can easily imagine pairing them with an oversized sweater and flats or boots for brunch or to the movies on a cold winter night.
GAP Pure Body Tank
– I bought this to wear with the pictured pants as PJs in Winter. The GAP Pure range is so super soft, I love wearing their pieces to bed because they’re so comfortable.
GAP Pure Body Foldover Pants – I already own a pair of these pants and they are SO comfortable. I’m planning on wearing them as PJ pants, but I’ve been known to wear them around the house on days where I’m not planning on doing much else other than watching TV or reading a book under a blanket.
The above pictured outfit is what I wore to my work Christmas lunch today. Forever 21 dark denim skinny jeans, Forever 21 cream chiffon blouse, GAP cream cashmere cardigan, Forever 21 studded ballet flats, Forever 21 crystal/gold bow earrings & Sephora/OPI “Charge It” polish.
