logo tee in the winter

Jan 11, 2017

Streetstyle- Adidas tee
Middle of the week! Insert happy dance here....

I feel like I am finally getting back into the groove this week. Has it taken anyone else this long? Holiday hangover threw me for a loop last week and I was just all over the place. My mood was less than stellar as well, and I have had to sincerely apologize to my children and Chris for my lack of decorum. But I am back to my obnoxious crazy self this week and all is good....or better. 
Layer a tee for winter
I mentioned in a post last week how I am tackling getting organized this month. I am still in closet mode. I am not joking when I tell you I am probably getting rid of 65% of my closet. I know. I really, really, really, want to start fresh. Since moving to Georgia I have really cut down on my spending. I don't know what Alaska did to me, but man, I clearly just sat in front of my computer and bought shit.  Whether I liked it or not because I was looking at some items in my closet like....how did you get here? Are you lost? 
2017 Outfit Trends
I know it sounds so stupid and simple, but I really just want to get to the point that I am only buying things that I truly love. Not just like, not oh I can make it work, not it's on sale so why not? But love. I have already seen my impulse shopping habits at work. Now, I will browse and add to cart, then I will just walk away. When I look at the cart again I'm like....ehh....no. 
Styling a tee in winter
Adidas tee- J. Crew Turtleneck- Nordstrom Coats
Hi, my name is Kelsey and I have been a shopaholic since 1987. It really truly is embarrassing. But, new year, old me, with a few updates. This outfit is made up of some of my truly favorite things, and many pieces you have seen me remix. I layered my favorite turtleneck with a tee, and it became Georgia winter friendly. This coat I think I wore once in Alaska, so shame on me. Anyone remember back in the blogging day when style bloggers would do those 30 day challenges? I am not on that scale, or even on a capsule wardrobe type thing, I just want to be more mindful about what I am buying. More quality, less trendy pieces. So adult of me right? Only took almost thirty years. But this is not a resolution, so don't hold me to this if I fail next month. Okay?

Shop the post:


  1. I feel the same way about things I buy - I want them to be quality pieces and bring me joy for more than just one wear! I love the casual look with heels - totally chic girl! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. This is such a great casual look! I definitely need to do a serious closet reorg too. My closet is just such a cluttered mess of things I haven't worn in ages and can't even remember why I bought them! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  3. Such a cool outfit! Love the style of denim with your tee and more polished jacket.
