5 Easy Ways to Winterize Your Wardrobe

5 Easy Ways to Winterize Your Wardrobe

I was at a rummage sale over the weekend and found a great BCBG poly shirtdress for $8! I had to snag the deal, but with its bright color palette, I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to wear it till next summer. Luckily, I have a number of great staples in my closet that will allow me to carry this outfit throughout the seasons and below I give you the rundown on how to do the same.

  1. Leather Jacket – I bought a fab 70′s leather jacket at a thrift store down in Miami. You can score your own at thrift stores, or mass retailers nationwide. They are so versatile, easy to layer, and give you the warmth you need  for cool fall and winter nights. This little number on Etsy from JackJettVintageis exactly like the one I own!
  2. Wrap Sweater – You can pick one up at any local thrift store or mass retailer. I am loving this one on Etsy from dinalouisesf! They are so warm and cozy and take tank and short sleeved dresses from summer to winter in an instant.
  3. Hat – Knit hats are a great and inexpensive way to stay warm and transition outfits. You can pick them up anywhere or make one yourself (there are tons of free tutorials online, like the one I have linked from Red Heart Yarn).
  4. Tights/Leggings – My all time favorite closet staple. These HUE ones are my fav and have lasted me for several years (washing on cold and line drying). They are great to winterize summer dresses or skirts and can also be paired with winter wardrobe items as well.
  5. Boots – I have a great pair of vintage cowboy boots that I got at a Thrift Store in Manhattan a few years back. Riding boots are also a great investment and perfect for taking summer outfits through the seasons. These lovelies on Etsy from Time Bomb Vintage  would be perfect to winterize any outfit!

Even though I can’t have 80 degree temps all year long (until I move to Hawaii), at least my summer dresses don’t need to be banished to under-bed storage thanks to these great winterizing closet staples!

Vintage Valentine Style


I love holidays! Valentine’s Day is one of my faves because of the abundance of yummy conversation hearts and chocolate. Ok, maybe I just like candy, either way, you can’t go wrong.

I wanted to update the store window with some festive color and this is what I came up with. Let me know what you think!

Let it Snow

Bundling up for the upcoming storm.

It’s only October, but the forecast for this weekend is calling for several inches of snow in the Northeast. I finally kissed my bare leg days goodbye and pulled out all of my leggings and tights from my closet.

I love mixing the old with the new when creating looks. I found this amazing hat store in downtown Denver called Goorin Brothers. My hubby and I picked up a hat each. The prices are reasonable and they are made really well. The store dates back to 1895 so they still abide by the same quality standards from years past. They carry a ton of vintage styles as well as more modern pieces. I thought the black cloche style hat (similar to this Tina Flapper hat, but it was only around $50) would go perfect with a vintage 60′s black tweed coat that I picked up from a friend. They look amazing together! I paired them with my Etsy (that I resoled) leather boots that I picked up for $25 and together they really allow for the old and new to look seamless (and wallet friendly).
