I was hoping that this post would be a perfect mix of cold weather attire and all of the fun, sunshine-y pieces I wore in the Dominican Republic. But, alas, as you probably already know from my excessive wining about it, four hours before I was set to leave for the airport Essley started puking. So I got to stay home with a sick kid. Good times. Needless to say, all of those pretty gauzy dresses and cut-offs and sunglasses I packed went right back into storage. And that means that the final What I'm Wearing Now post for 2017 doesn't look all that much different from last month. But that's life, and clothes are just clothes, and soon enough spring will be here (or that's what I like to tell myself, anyway).

I've once again been having fun with layers, totally over-wearing UGG Boots (which I once was convinced were like omg so suburban mom, and well, here I am), these jeans (which as of the time I type this out are on sale for $19!), and a whole lot of sweaters. I've also been consisting wearing these tassel earrings, everyday and with everything. They're really long but with a swift cut of the scissors they were the perfect length. I'm kind of obsessed.

One thing that doesn't look quite like any of the casual pieces you see here that I will be wearing this month is my New Year's Eve dress. I don't have a photo because it's actually a few years old, but it's blush and full of sequins and completely over the top. In other words, it's perfect. I'm really excited to wear it in Denver on the 31st.

I'll post my usual full year-in-review What I'm Wearing Now Post in early January. And it will be interesting to see what I wear next month, considering we move on the 4th and we'll be doing a lot of painting and other house stuff while our stuff is in boxes. I'm cool with that though. I've never been one to complain about a leggings and old t-shirt uniform.

  1. You weren't joking when you said our winter uniforms were similar :) Mine is a little less colourful, of course, but I have to admit that the first thing that caught my eye in this round-up was those paint splattered Minnetonka slip-ons - so fun! (Although I'd want to wear them without socks... and I'm trying very hard to convince myself fashion is not worth risking frost bite. Several more months still to go, so we'll see if I actually succeed.)

  2. Those tassel earrings are now officially on my last minute christmas (to myself haha) list!
