You Can Never go Wrong with a Good Groutfit

I know my outfit posts on Whale & Wishbone are few and far between. The main reason why is that photographing them is always an all around uncomfortable experience. It by no means feels natural to have someone take a million solo pics of me in the street! I'm always the epitome of awkward.  

These posts have, however, proven to be some of my most popular to date and I'm always pleasantly surprised by how much I like them. That's why in 2016, I attempting to push myself out of my comfort zone and bring you more of these posts on the regular, starting today! 


This is currently a new go-to outfit of mine for this crazy non-winter weather we've been having in New York lately-- It's not cold, but it's not warm either, and it by no means feels like January. 

This time last year, there's no way I would have been able to wear cropped pants without freezing, but for this weather, they're perfect. Pairing them with boots and a turtleneck also helps to keep the look very "winter" feeling. 

(Pssst-- Both the turtleneck and the trousers are currently on sale! hooray! -- details at the end) 


If you can't tell, I've really been into the monochromatic look lately-- basically, groutfits for days!  Although, that doesn't mean I don't love pops of color. I used a red lip and bag here to keep this look more exciting. 

(Side Note: If you don't know, "groutfit"= gray outfit)


I love a good bargain and you'll find that almost every piece of this outfit is currently on sale. These Madewell boots, although no longer available, were a serious sample sale steal!



Most of you already know that I'm beyond obsessed with my Daniel Wellington watch, which was a graduation gift from my parents. It goes with absolutely everything and I'd honestly feel a little incomplete without it on.

My bracelet was a sparkly Christmas present from my Godmother. I love how glam it looks, and with a stretchy band, it's super comfortable too!



No joke this bright and adorable crossbody is only $19 from Old Navy! Like I said, I love a bargain. 



Shout out to my friend Caroline who acted as my photographer for this post. Although she's almost as uncomfortable holding a camera as I am in front of it, these pictures came out amazing and she kept me laughing the whole time. Thanks, Car! 


Ultimately, January is great month to dress as cozy and comfortable as possible, while still looking pulled together. That's why I'm planning to commit Kate Sander's cardinal sin all month long, and be a total outfit repeater.
