Hello, friends! I am here today with my first outfit post for 2018! I did a poll about a week ago on Instagram and asked if you wanted to see more casual outfits or dressy outfits for work, and majority of everyone said casual! Yay to that because these days, I definitely dress more casual. I do have a wear to work post coming to the blog in the next few weeks, so stay tuned for that!
Our lives are honestly pretty boring. We don’t dress up for much these days so most days I wear leggings and a comfy sweater/top or jeans depending upon where I am going and what I have to do that day. Fall/winter is always a season I look forward to and wish I could start wearing sweaters by late August/early September. But let’s be real, if I did I would probably get some looks since it’s still pretty hot for Thanksgiving. Even though I have always lived in a hot climate, I gravitate more towards being covered up with sweaters and pants. And would you believe I have more winter clothes than summer clothes? The last few days have been pretty cold, so I’m staying warm and wearing all of the sweaters! I picked up this sweater last week on a run to Nordstrom and have already worn it a few times. It’s comes in 7 colors and is under $40!
I am excited to be doing my first giveaway of the year! Scroll down to see what it’s all about! I also have a special discount code for you guys for check out all the way at the end of the post!
IT’S GIVEAWAY TIME!! Head to my Instagram (@meghan_lanahan) to enter to win this pretty blanket scarf from Ilymix! All you have to do is like this picture and tag 2 friends to be entered. It’s so easy! No going through a whole loop of people to follow! It’s my way of giving back to you guys for being so great to me these last few months! I think a scarf can change up any outfit! I have my favorite items in my closet that I reach for all of the time and I simply add a scarf to make it feel like I’m not wearing the same thing over and over. I love blanket scarves that are different colors! When a scarf has a few different colors, I stick to wearing a neutral colored top or a color in the scarf.
Being drawn to more neutral colors for winter means lots of greys, tans and whites! I love the look of grey and white together, and this sweater would be so pretty with white jeans and heels to dress up. This sweater is also long enough to wear with leggingsfor a super casual look with sneakers. Lightweight sweaters like this one, are so easy to transition to warmer months too. When it starts to warm up, you can throw this on with a pair of shorts or over a dress when it’s still cooler in the evenings. I’m not sure when the weather will get warm again – maybe sometime in February, but I will have this one handy the remainder of the season!
Don’t forget to enter the giveaway on Instagram! I am really hoping to do more giveaways this year! If you don’t know about Ilymix, they carry blanket scarves, long scarves, ponchos and beanies! I am excited to let you know that you can use the discount code ‘lanahan20’ at checkout to get 20% off your order!
