sparkle and shine

For the winter season, one of the first retailers I turn to for style inspiration is Topshop. I feel like their brand perfectly meshes with the need for cozy knits and layers as the temperatures drop. Usually I mix and match designers and stores to create my moodboards, but sometimes, every piece I need is on Topshop's site.
Leather zip trousers, embellished crop top, leather gusset lady bag, textured stitch cardigan, banana heel ankle boots

Topshop practically invented the sparkle-and-knit layered look that somehow meshes so well. You could walk into their store and pull together an outfit that looks like it came from all four corners of the earth. Or at least the mall.

Promised I'd share with you guys if I found the perfect fleece-lined leggings. And...





Here they are! This cozy grey pair from Anthropologie fits the bill (literally, they're only $18) and after reading the high reviews, I want to stock up with multiple pairs in every color. Why not, right? This girl has a reason to keep warm...






P.S. Today's high: 18 degrees...
