March comes in like a lion

It was 70 and sunny today, so this outfit from two weeks ago seems completely out of place as I write this, however, with snow in the forecast for Washington this weekend, I figure I’m right back on target to post this today. Also, I’ve got so many things to say about this particular outfit…

This post is my Barbour jacket‘s first appearance on the blog even though it’s been a staple of my wardrobe since I bought it last year. It’s no doubt a splurge, but the cost per wear at this point has go to be well under $1 and will only continue to go down further over the years. It goes with almost anything in my closet, whether it’s jeans, leggings, or a dress, and the waxing plus the removable hood make it perfect for misty, dreary days. Plus, those roomy pockets mean I can often go without a purse—that’s a definite win.

I came across these earrings when I was down in Richmond a couple weekends ago. Adam and I were killing time before meeting up with some friends at a brewery and stopped in a pop-up shop that was all local Richmond makers. I’ve been looking for some every day gold earrings that would make a bit more of a statement than my usual gold knots, and these absolutely fit the bill.

One last note on the outfit—I’m a big fan of layering turtlenecks with dresses and in this case it makes a warm weather cotton striped dress perfect for cooler temperatures. Also, ignore my hair. This is the result of not blow drying my hair in the AM, running hands through it that must have been greasy from hand balm, and then putting it in a top knot just to get it out of my fave. Ta-da, waves…sort of.
