Well folks, today was the day… Ole Punxsutawney Phil, while a little hesitant to rise from his hole, made his 131st highly sophisticated (and trusted) meteorological prediction.
Will we be bearing the winter chill for a little while longer or is it time to start planning for spring?
Drum roll please…
Winter it is!
The (not so little) dude was set on his stump and saw his shadow.
While some are bummed and some more excited, I’ve used this oh so serious holiday each year as an excuse for a new outfit. Because let’s be real, the weather strongly dictates my wardrobe.
I present to you… my 2017 Groundhog Day “inspired” look! I’m going preppy and layered to account for the needed warmth, but as you’ll see, a number of my new pieces will transition perfectly into spring. I just couldn’t go full-on dark, winter, drab. So not me!
I’ll have to keep my dark jeans out for a little while longer, which is no problem at all! I would make them a year-long staple if I could. Same goes for my crisp white button down, but this will have a place in my spring wardrobe as well.
The two new additions ole Phil has inspired me to pick up include this fun cardigan and neon flats from J.Crew Factory.
