When the days are short and it’s just so cold out, you might not want to wear anything cute. Or if you struggle with what to wear now that the holidays have ended, but you still have a few cute sweaters that you want to get use out of. During this time, I love to layer of course. But also break out those sweaters or anything shimmery and pair it with classic black. This way you are still looking chic, but not too festive or out of place during dreary January… and before we all start wearing pink and red during the month of February.
For this outfit, I just layered my favorite tissue turtleneck that I put under almost everything and have in about 5 colors. I went with a classic pair of black jeans paired with a black patten pump, and just added a shimmery sweater. Any kind of top layer will work great, and in fact, I love the black turtleneck and jeans with a colorful cardigan over it all. Or anything really, but it creates a cool silhouette having full black as your under layer and then putting a favorite outer layer on top of it all.
Now onto the kiddies. The only place you need to go if you love preppy kids clothing is Nantucket Kids. You might remember me talking about Nantucket Kids in this post from this past November, where Elston was in that adorable red suspender skirt and Jackson’s lobster sweater. I’ve had a few mom friends order from them this past holiday and have absolutely loved it. They are having some great sales right now (50% off everything!), and it’s the perfect time to get some classic and beautiful outfits for your babes. I completely stand behind this brand as it was started by a woman entrepreneur and wonderfully run. The clothes are incredibly well made and will be pieces you will have in your family for awhile, and ones that you hand down to siblings or friends! You don’t have to exclusively love preppy kids clothing. The styles hold up too so it’s not like any of it goes out of style. Check them out for sure because their sale is too good to pass up right now, and it can definitely be stuff your littles can wear now into spring and summer! All my kid’s outfits from here can be worn this whole year!
