Well, hello there! It’s been a while, almost 3 months actually, since I’ve shared a Personal Style post. It’s also been a while since I’ve wanted to share a Personal Style post. Let’s just say I wasn’t feeling the whole process of getting dressed, taking pictures and blogging about my outfit while. For the past few months I’ve been living in leggings, sweaters and sneakers while hibernating in our one bedroom apartment, my office and my parents house. But please, don’t feel sorry for me…at all.

I thoroughly enjoyed the last few months! During my “hibernation” I made time to plan and prepare content, among other things, for the months ahead. I also spent much needed quality time with my husband, family and good friends. Catching matinee’s and finishing some really good books is also something I enjoyed during that time. But alas, it’s time to resume sharing those minimal #WNJStyle posts and re-enter my world of Whitney Nic James, the blog.
When I think about my wardrobe last season, as well as the current one, I notice that I’ve worn a lot of burgundy and black and burgundy and leopard print. It seems to be my go-to color combo. Deciding to wear these colors together is a chic style choice; the warm tone of burgundy is perfect for the fall and winter season(s). Adding leopard print to the mix brings it all together, don’t you agree?
This burgundy cardigan is one of the few pieces I’ve added to my minimal wardrobe this season. I’m still being very selective about the wardrobe items I add to my closet, but this piece was a must. It’s versatile, the color is timeless and the material incredibly warm. There have been quite a few days that I’ve worn this cardigan as a light jacket/coat, with a scarf of course. And did I mention it was on sale when I purchased it? The sales racks at Target (still) get me, everytime.

So tell me, how have the past few months been for you? Have you been wearing a lot of burgundy and black like me? Let me know!
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for still visiting WNJ, and keeping up with me on social media, during my blog break. I’m excited to be back and even more excited to catch up with you all. Until next time, be blessed and stay safe…XO!
