I don't have any outfit photos to show you this morning, as I usually would on a Monday, because winter arrived in full force over the past couple of days and I wasn't quite prepared. I was going to take some this morning when I awoke and saw the warm sunlight pouring in through the windows but then I checked the weather and realized all that "warm" sunlight was just an illusion. It's 25 degrees out there!
Instead I spent the morning in search of the one thing that seems to elude my wardrobe; long sleeved dresses. Why is it that so many dresses offered in winter collections are still short sleeves or at most, three-quarter sleeves? I'm a fan of cardigans as much as the next gal, but sometimes I don't want to worry about all those layers.
Once I really started looking I was pleasantly surprised by the selection that I found. Granted, I'm not going to be affording A.P.C. or Steven Alan any time soon, but there are affordable options from Modcloth and Topshop. The grey striped dress from Modcloth should be arriving in my mailbox any day now.
Hopefully I can bolster my wardrobe with a few of these choices (or I really love this one from Dear Creatures) so that getting dressed on these super cold mornings won't seem like such a chore. Today will be spent in my pajamas, getting packages ready to send out. Maybe I'll actually get dressed tomorrow!
