Stripes on a Rainy Day

ootd_gray_stripesIt has been uncharacteristically rainy here all week. Typically it rains for a while here and then stops but this week has been nothing but rain with a few breaks in between. It’s the kind of weather that makes me want to pull out cozy sweaters and drink hot chocolate, which is exactly what I’ve been doing. Usually I wouldn’t be this happy about the rain but it’s given me a chance to use my cute striped umbrella!

ootd_gray_stripes4I got this Banana Republic Filpucci striped sweater for Christmas and I absolutely love it, although I wouldn’t say it’s as “super soft” as they describe it. I love the easy fit and slightly dropped shoulders, and I’m always up for stripes.

ootd_gray_stripes2It’s a great everyday sweater and I love how light and relaxed it is- I usually find it hard to get this type of fit for my sweaters unless I buy them from the men’s section. I wore this striped sweater with lots of black like this warm pom pom beanie along with some neon lipstick and nail polish to help brighten the gray day.


ootd_gray_stripes1I got this fun faux leather tote for Christmas as well (thanks Stacie) and I’ve been using it every day. I really like the structured, minimalistic look of it and it’s quite sturdy. The tote is big enough to hold all my things and it came with a matching clutch.

I’ve worn these gray ones so much that I eventually picked some up in brown as well! I really like the buckles on the side that allow me to tighten them so I don’t feel like I’m wearing clunky rain boots.

    Love that nail polish color! I like wearing bright colors in the winter, too–it’s nice to have a pop of color on dreary days.

    And that sweater is adorable :) Happy weekend to you!
