What I Wore Most in Winter

I wanted to post this ages ago but didn’t have the time. These are the things I wore for winter. I didn’t add the bottoms because they were literally just black skirts and black denim all day every day. And most of the tops I ended up grabbing for where black x white knit aside from the baby blue sweater that I lived in on the weekends.

The two coats were really good sale finds. I liked how they’re both similar in cut but different in overall style. Both worked with whatever I was wearing so I could choose which based on if I was feeling more feminine or masculine that day. They both held up pretty well too. And they were both extremely soft which can be a challenge to find in wool coats.


Switching gears to loungewear. I recently decided to overhaul what I wore at home. When I first injured my arm I bought 3 oversized striped tees that I could get on and off easily. But since I’ve worn loungewear day after day, week after week, and so much of it is look haggard. So I’ve gotten rid of all the yoga pants that have lost their softness. Shirts that don’t feel 100% comfortable. And anything that doesn’t match well. Pretty much everything had to go. It had been worn into the ground by this point anyway. So I ordered two striped shirts on sale and 2 more pairs of soft black leggings and this is what you’re guaranteed to see me in if it’s day and I’m home.

And one last thing I ordered as a “treat myself” item is a bottle of Glam Glow. I had tried a sample a few times and always saw results. Since being at home my skin has freaked out due to various reasons. One being that face cleanser I blogged about recently.

I got the clearing treatment since my lifetime #1 issue is acne. And I wish I could say, “It’s not worth the cost,” but I can’t! I can’t lie. This stuff is the fastest-working clearing product I’ve ever used and that includes prescription creams and gels. This little bottle has gotten me back to clear skin. Now I’m just working on fading the left over scars…

Since I’m mostly at home these days waiting for my arm to heal, this is all I really have for taking photos. I have an examination next Friday and I’m hoping it reveals that everything is healing but I admit I have doubts. Surgery is still an option on the table and after 8 week of recuperating I still have daily pain and am unable to straighten out my arm completely. But until I have a better look at my bone’s healing progress I’ll keep enjoying my current surroundings :)
