Simple Winter Outfit on Ali Schilling

Maybe it’s the new year or the weather here in Dallas, but lately I am only inspired the classic pieces in my closet. This means, it’s time to do another closet clean out. The idea of purging isn’t necessarily to create room for new items (however this is always a plus), but more about only having things in your closet that make you feel good on the inside and out.  For me, this means finding easy outfits in my favorite quality fabrics and colors.

For the last seven years, we have been coming to my husband’s favorite place: Vail, Colorado. He has been visiting this little mountain town since he was just a little boy and introduced me to this special place one summer when we were driving my car from Scottsdale back to college.  There is something so charming and extremely special about this place.  This is the place where we fell in love and where I realized I wanted to marry this boy.  As the years pass and the number of visits climb, I fall a little bit more in love with this town.

I don’t know if I am jumping the gun but I think hope we are past “sweater weather” and saying so long winter in Dallas (sorry Midwest friends!).  The last few weeks we have been enjoying 60s and 70s. I have to say I have zero FOMO for everyone in New York right now thanks to the amazing weather this past weekend. Before the weather really shifts to Spring here in the South, I had to share this outfit.  Some form of this outfit has been my go-to during the last few months.  If you live in Dallas you know that layering is your friend when it comes to these transition months.  The mornings can be chilly. You leave the house with a coat in tow and by noon you are wanting to be wearing a tank top and shorts. In order to not have to make a quick change mid-day, I have been layering a sweater over a blouse so when the afternoon hits, I can pull off the sweater and tie it around my shoulders.  What is your go-to weekday outfit?

TeddyCoat_15 TeddyCoat_8_1 OldNavyCoat TeddyCoat_4_1 TeddyCoat_1_1 TeddyCoat_10_1 TeddyCoat_7_1 TeddyCoat_6_1While the East Coast is buried in snow, Dallas had some pretty mild weather this weekend.  I am really hoping this is the start of an early Spring here in the Texas.  As the years pass (from my time living in the midwest) the more I realize I am meant to live in the South.  Sunshine really is the key to my happiness or I guess a lot of Vitamin D.

Before the warm up this weekend, Dallas was frigid. well…I mean it was in the 30s, but it was the perfect reason to pull out my teddy coat.  Can I tell you guys a secret?  This coat was only $21.  I found it when browsing for Christmas PJs for the family and was blown away by the quality.  It was warm enough to wear in the mountains during New Years with a chunky sweater and the perfect weight for our moderate Dallas cold.   I also love wearing white jeans in the winter. There is something so refreshing and unexpected.

While I hope this is the last time I will be wearing my teddy coat this season, I know it will be a perfect addition to my closet.  Really, who can pass up that crazy deal.

Today is all about showing your love. It might sound cheesy but whether its a quick email to all of your girlfriends, a phone call to your grandparents or a little breakfast in bed for your guy/girl, today is all about telling those people how much you love them. So first and foremost, today is about showing my love to all of you readers! You are the one’s who drive me and the one’s who continue to keep push creative views. I really never thought this little space in the Internet would ever allow me to connect and make lifelong friendships that bring me so much joy everyday.

If you are wondering what yesterday was about….well, remember when I said when I moved to Ohio a few months back and I said we may be moving again soon, well that may now be sooner rather than later.  A lot of things are still up in the air as of today. I really try and keep it real over here. so I wanted you to be the firsts to know. Long story short, everything is going to change again in a big way.  Stay tuned for more details, but for now, today I hope you enjoy lots of pink and red, steal a few kisses or eat a few Hersey ones, buy yourself some flowers if you already haven’t, and share your love with people that matter.
