It's the first What I'm Wearing Now post for 2018 (aside from the full 2017 What I'm Wearing year in review I posted earlier this month), and wow, look you guys! It's so different from December! Obviously, I'm being sarcastic. But hey, winter is winter in Chicago and whether I like it or not, my beloved spring and summer dresses and sandals are going to be pushed toward the back on my closet for several more months while I'm wearing jeans and sweaters over and over again.

In the meantime, I'm making the best of the cold weather with layers, once again over-wearing UGG Boots (never say never, friends), and living in pull-over sweaters which is honestly so unlike me. (My current favorite - this comfy black number from Target for only $17.99 - isn't shown above.) These tassel earrings are going strong on the daily, too. (If you get a pair, they're really long. One cut of the scissors and they're the perfect length.)

We are planning to go to both Florida and Arizona over the next few months, so hopefully the upcoming months will be slightly more varied. And hey, it is Chicagoland after all - it's always possible we'll have a 70 degree day in there too. A summer girl can dream.

  1. Melissa, you are not alone in having a lack of variety in your winter wardrobe. When it's so cold and wet outside, I find it's hard to want to vary my clothes too much because they all get that winter dirt on them. Better just to wear a few things you wash over and over and wait for spring to pull out your best pieces!

  2. I love your winter style and am going to get some of those tassel earrings right now!

  3. Nice looks, Melissa!! Love them all, especially the first sweater and the scarf! All items are so cute!
