Chillin in Chucktown


I know you're probably sick of hearing about all of the things that I love about Charleston (if you have visited here, you understand). But after spending a few weeks in the nearly negative-degree weather in Indiana, another thing I can add to the list of Charleston-loves is the fact that I can get away with a chunky sweater, jeans, and booties in December and January. Granted, later this week it's supposed to dip into the 20s, but today boasted a high temp of 57 degrees. Perfect for jeans and a sweater. 

These pics were taken a few weeks back, but this outfit has been a go-to this season. These jeans are my ABSOLUTE FAVORITES. My girlfriend Katie and I can't say enough great things about Madewell jeans, especially the skinny skinny. The don't stretch out, they keep their shape, and once you find your size, it will stay your size across all styles (99% of the time). Seriously, give them a shot. I bought a pair and immediately went back to purchase two more. Katherine at the Madewell on King Street and I are on a first name basis. 

Now, on to the booties. The best, most comfortable, wear-with-anything booties are the Joie Dalton booties. I can run, walk, sit, stand, dance, sleep, and possibly even do a little yoga in these babies. They come in a range of colors and look great with jeans and tights. They are a little pricey, but well worth the investment (plus, they're available on many sites so keep an eye out for post-holiday sales and discounts). 

And finally, the H&M sweater. I bought this after stalking a girl wearing the same one in Starbucks. I may or may not have inappropriately almost tackled her to find out where she got it, then walked right down to H&M to grab one for myself. What can I say? When it comes to style, I have no pride. I will chase a homegirl down the street to figure out where she got something. My best inspirations tend come from people-watching.

If you're one of my friends in the Midwest, there's plenty of time to rock a similar look. For my new girlfriends in the South, all of these pieces can easily be mixed with warmer-weather staples. I hope you see something you like, and I hope 2015 is treating you well so far. Thank you for following along for another year!
