I have a confession. I’m in a bit of a shopping rut… or at least I was. It’s that time of year  when the amazing pieces from spring// summer are starting to hit your favourite retailers and the bold, bright colours and sights of shorts have you all giddy. You run to the change room, try it on and then stare in the mirror and say to yourself, “Where the heck am I going to where this right now?!?!” (Or for the next 2-3 months if you live in Canada). I’m 100% guilty of doing this.

Sure, sure – we hear a lot about ‘transitional’ wardrobe items but I feel like so often I’m lost at what those items look like. Enter this trench dress from WhiteHouse Black Market. At first blush, you probably agree with me and totally love. But then you may think about it more and wonder how to incorporate it into your current situation: tights, ankle boots, thick coats and more.

So here’s your simple solution: Add 1 layering turtleneck or mockneck sweater (just make sure it’s paper thin), throw on a jacket (Love this one!), add a pair of nude tights (Ok ok, I skipped this one for these photos but I’m all for it) and top it off with a dark but neutral toned pump to remind everyone you didn’t completely forget it’s winter ;)

  3. This time of year is always SO boring when it comes to shopping, at least in my case, so I too often find myself shopping in my closet and trying to be creative!
