Last winter I bought myself three pairs of the same black pants. I'm sorry if you thought I was wearing the same pair of pants everyday, I was actually switching it up...
Fast forward a year later and I am once again on the black pants rotation. It's only December 18th and I'm already in the winter fashion rut. That said, it's not a bad rut. Black pants, good boots, a touch of plaid and some quirky details and it truly looks like you care!
I love dresses and impracticality and my very favourite piece of clothing will likely always be this vintage number that can hardly fit under a seat belt but I'm kind of impressed with my sensibility over dressing for the shop in the winter. It's just layers of basics (layers of basics... Is that a bunch of college girls standing in the autumn leaves taking pictures of their Starbucks?) and everything is interchangeable. Like a capsule wardrobe that I will cheat on when I muster the energy to wear a dress again...

Also, I wore different boots this time. Go me....

It's not a rut if it's a good look. That's what I say. These looks are definitely winners, so you're good! :)

Don't think of it as a rut, think of it as a capsule wardrobe for surviving Canadian December.

You look fab! Love all the outfits!

Black pants are classic. I think they will not be superfluous in the wardrobe of any woman, and if you have three pairs of pants you are provided with beauty and style more for several years ahead.
