2018 January Favorites #FashionFriday
Greetings, friends! TGIF! How did everyone fare with the snowpocalypse? It’s done snowing here, but the cold temperatures and high winds remain. I’m so grateful we still have electricity. The kids are on a two-hour delay this morning so here’s hoping that doesn’t change before I can get them on the bus. I love my kids, but they need to go to school today so I can restore some order to my house before the weekend hits.
I haven’t taken any outfit pictures yet this year, and with the current weather situation, it will be a while before I do, so I put together my January Favorites for this week’s #FashionFriday.
This is basically a roundup of new finds and old favorites that I’m particularly enjoying right now. They’re not all fashion-related, but most are. I try to include a variety of products and price points.
2018 January Favorites
#1. Milo Loafers // I know it’s January and I should probably be all about the cozy boots, but I’m obsessed with loafers right now. I find myself wearing these Vince Milo loafers whenever they work with my outfit — which is often! I love their minimalistic style, and they’re really soft and flexible.
#2. Rails Plaid // These are the softest plaid shirts I’ve ever worn. The price it steep so I recommend getting them on sale. Rails shirts at Saks Off 5th are 56% off right now, and Nordstrom carries them as well. These shirts run small, so I recommend sizing up one; mine is a medium, for reference.
I’ve had my Rails plaid shirt for a year or two. I don’t wear it a ton, but I’ve found myself going for it a lot recently. I like that it’s different from my typical pullover sweater but still soft and comfortable.
And yes, that’s me wearing Converse in the snow. I just stepped out onto my front porch to snap that picture; otherwise I was inside all day. I did end up switching into my slippers for the rest of the day, but I usually wear those sneakers with my Rails plaid because I like how they look together — especially with distressed jeans in between — so I threw them on for the picture. The reaction on Instagram was kind of funny. People were worried I was cold. (Don’t worry; we keep our heat cranked in our house!)
Oh, and also, these jeans are $88 and really soft and comfy. Highly recommend!
#3. Madewell Inland Turtleneck // Oooh, look, there are those loafers again! LOL!!! I have a lot of pullover sweaters I’m loving right now so I had a hard time choosing a one to feature, but this one is super soft and a really good price for the quality.
Sizes are picked over, but there are a bunch of great colors. I’m tempted to order the blush (hthr blossom), but as I’ve shared before, I don’t like to have duplicates so I’m holding off. It runs true to size; I have the small but I think I could probably wear the medium. You can probably go either way on this one.
#4. UGG Dakota Slippers // Need I say more? Well, I will anyway. I snagged my UGG Dakota slippers at the UGG Outlet last summer, and I’ve been so glad I have them this month with these crazy temperatures. They are soooo cozy and comfy, and I wear them a lot when I’m just around the house.
I also have the similar style Abeo Halifax slippers with the built-in orthotic that are great as well, but I go for my UGGs more often than not simply because the Abeo ones I have are a half size too big and slip off my foot. I recommend either if you’re in the market for cozy slippers. (The Abeo slippers are on sale, so that’s a plus!)
#5. J.Crew Cocoon Coat // My mom gave me this coat for Christmas, and I love it. I can’t wait to shoot a look with it, but that will be a few days because the wind out there right now is not conducive to a photo shoot. I did grab this mirror selfie in my bedroom, though, so you can see it on. I think it’s so much prettier on than it is in the picture online. Even my daughter mentioned how much she liked it when I put it on for the first time.
For size reference, I have the 6, and it’s perfect. I can sometimes take an 8 in coats, so if you’re in between sizes, I’d recommend sizing down. Also, this coat is currently 40% off with code NEWYEAR! It also comes in black and a beautiful camel as well as a few other brighter colors that are really fun.
#6. Rib Trim Long Cardigan // I had to include this because it’s such a great cozy little sweater to wrap up in whether you’re just around the house, or if you’re going out. It’s a great one to throw on over your pajamas in the morning too. I can’t believe it’s still fully stocked in all sizes, and it’s only $29! (Unfortunately the scarf is long gone.) I have the sweater in the small, and frankly, I wish I’d ordered an XS. Point being, size down if you order one!
#7. CND Hollywood Nail Color // I discovered this nail color right before Christmas, and I’ve really enjoyed wearing it for the holidays. I’m including it in my January Favorites because I’m still wearing it (well, as of the time of this posting — I’m actually headed out this morning to get a manicure, and I’ll probably change to something else. I never get the same color twice in a row. Yes, I have lots of crazy arbitrary rules like this and the duplicate sweater rule. Ha!)
ANYWAY, it’s a fun color to brighten up these dreary winter days, and I’ll definitely get it again — maybe for Valentine’s Day!
#8. Rodan + Fields Essential Daily Body Moisturizer // I love this stuff all year ’round, but I especially love it right now because I tend to get really itchy, dry skin in the winter time. If I use this daily, I don’t get itchy. It’s such a life saver!!!
#9. Let It Snow Mug // I know it’s not available online, but you may be able to find it in your local Target it you want one. My daughter gave me this mug for Christmas, and I love it. It’s perfect for this time of year, plus the shape helps hold the heat in and keep my coffee hotter longer.
So that’s what I’ve got for this month! I hope it was fun. Be sure and safe and warm this weekend!
