Winter Capsule Roundup: Favorite February Combos

If there has to be a month that's shorter than all the others, I'm sure glad it's February. While I have nothing against the month, when it's over it means we're one step closer to spring. This month, the weather was a little bit all over the place, which is pretty typical for February in Kansas. I had a few favorite go-to combinations to get me through the roller coaster of temperatures.

{one} dressed up cords. I'm so glad I included two pairs of cords in my winter capsule. I wear both pairs constantly, and I love how perfect they are to dress up with heels or a blazer. They can easily be super casual, but I have fun snazzing them up a bit.

{two} cozy layered sweaters. This is kind of a no-brainer, I mean, sweaters were made for winter, right? These two in particular though are so thick and warm and ready to be layered up. In fact, I call these are my no-space-heater-needed sweaters.

{three} add a vest. Apparently, this month it's add a vest, a polka dot chambray, and boots. I talk a lot about dressing in formulas over here, and clearly the vest + button-up + boots combo is one that I've been putting to work.

  2. Every time I see them on you, I want a pair of red cords! So cute. My go-to has been slouchy sweaters and skinnies or leggings. I'm ready for some spring weather and clothes!

  22. Oh I love that v-day bright colored look. It's so pretty. Glad you are loving your capsule! Oh KS and your weather... whew. I'm pretty much stuck in sweaters + a big scarf & fingerless gloves still. Brr. It's freezing in my office. But I have been enjoying the #StyleMeFeb challenge. Though several of those outfits definitely did not get worn out of the house. ha :) XO -Alexandra
