My Go-To Winter Basics

Even though we are currently experiencing unseasonably warm temperatures here in North Carolina, I know there are still plenty of winter days ahead! Back in November I ordered a few things from Everlane and I’m excited to share them with you today! I have heard such rave reviews about Everlane’s items but had not tried them until now… y’all I don’t know what I was waiting on. I am so impressed with the quality of the items I got & can’t wait to order more.

First up is this cashmere sweater. It’s such high quality and is so cozy. The best part? It’s under $200, which is pretty much unheard of for a great cashmere sweater! I have been reaching for this sweater at least a couple times a week since getting it! Next are these straight jeans. I am all about a straight boyfriend style jean and these come in under $80! I ordered the ankle length, but still ended up chopping a few inches off (I’m 5’2″) to hit slightly above the ankle. And if you’re in the market for a new tote that you can use daily – be sure to check out the Day Market Tote! It’s an open tote that has room for everything from a laptop to what you’ll need in a carry-on!

I hope y’all are having a great week! We’re one step closer to the weekend! Tonight I am going to meet one of my favorite authors, Diane Chamberlain! She recently published a new book called Big Lies in a Small Town and she’s going to be in my city for her tour! I’m really looking forward to meeting her!

    I’m the worst at buying basics because I’m always just drawn to fun colors and prints! But this entire look is SO good. Especially loving the sweater and the bag!

    I can’t get enough of this look. From head to toe, every piece is classic, beautiful perfection. I don’t often say I actually NEED something, but I feel as though I actually *need* all of this!

  • More reading, less scrolling 📖 that’s one of my 2020 mottos! A few years ago I implemented less screen time & more time for reading and it’s made me a much happier, fulfilled person! Last year I read 95 books and for 2020 my goal is to read at least 75! What are your reading goals for the year? #enwreads #bookgoals #liketkit #LTKswim #LTKtravel #enwexplores
