*s’winter–an amalgam of winter and summer.
With second semester officially underway, some friends and I thought there to be no better way to kick things off than by visiting our favorite place–the beach. Definitely one of the major perks of attending Fairfield University is that it is located in close proximity to the beach. I’ve spent my entire life living by the beach, so it is amazing to have the opportunity to continue doing so while in college.
On this particular day, the weather was so warm that it was hard to believe it was actually in the midst of winter. Having always lived in New England, and having experienced some of the absolute coldest winter days, the warm weather definitely came as a pleasant surprise.
Sweater dresses are absolutely perfect for days like these. They will keep you feeling warm and cozy all day long, while at the same time you will look trendy and completely put together. I completely adore this soft gray Eira Sweater dress from Anthropologie. It is comfortable yet chic–perfect for s’winter days! 😉 Instead of wearing a coat, I opted for my all time favorite sherpa vest. I bought this particular one last year from Bloomingdales, but similar ones can be found at a variety of stores. Vests are great, especially when worn over dresses because they can complete almost any outfit, adding an element of ~cozy spunk.~ For shoes, I decided to spice things up a little bit by wearing my new favorite heeled booties form Urban Outfitters (on sale now!) As I mentioned before, I am obsessed with all things bootie-related. These particular ones stood out to me for a variety of reasons. Not only do I love a good heel, and not only do I love suede, I love experimenting with color. Prior to purchasing these boots, I hadn’t owned any green shoes! Dare to be different this winter and sway from the conventional tan bootie! You will thank me later:) Finally, I popped on my favorite sunnies from Madewell to block out the sun (as well as the haters) ((jk)) ;).
If the rest of the winter is like this, weather wise, I think it’s safe to say that there will be plenty of more ~s’winter~ related posts to come:)
