Shopping Your Closet: Winter Boho


I hope this post won’t come across as overly light. Especially as compared to the one that I wrote at the beginning of this week. It has been another hard week.

The sun is out today, and temps are nearing 60. I said my piece about embracing winter, but gosh! the bright rays really make a girl feel good!

If you’ve followed along on my style journey here on Refined + Rugged you will already know of my penchant for The Stripe. I really truly do love stripes! Some people are a fan of the stripe, some people are not.

But regardless of your leaning– toward or away from stripes– there are few things as easy to throw on and look pulled together as a shift dress. Choose a solid color, floral pattern, or eclectic print if it suits YOU!!!

May your Thursday be filled with all of the best. TGIT!
