The tights have it!…..in Pink

Untitled designWinter is still here and I tried to lighten the winter blues by injecting bright pink colored tights into my wardrobe, and I loved it!!

This particular day it was almost sixty degrees in February, so I broke out the denim shorts and coupled it with an oversized sweater and pink tights!

Another outfit, in a monochromatic moment I opted for grey jersey skirt and added grey sweater and again rocked my pink tights! (sidebar; you can swap out the flat boots for heeled boots and formalize the look)

Ladies we can still be cute even when its cold outside!

Of course this look may not be for the faint of heart, but for those of us who think outside the wardrobe, it is smashing!

ps. I matched my lipstick to my tights…..

My trench treat…..

So on a Fall like winter day I rocked my staple tan trench. The beauty of this coat is that it is versatile with a retro feel. This day I wore it with black skinny jeans and a black and white striped turtleneck sweater.

As I mentioned before, I love trench coats! So with the see-saw winter weather we are now experiencing, I get to wear my light trench coat in the middle of the season (a treat for me).

So on a Fall  like winter day I rocked my staple tan trench. The beauty of this coat is that it is versatile with a retro feel. This day I wore it with black skinny jeans and a black and white striped turtleneck sweater.

Tall boots was my footwear of choice, and to color up the ensemble I picked up my grass green tote.

On a side note, I have to tell about my headband! I saw this headband while perusing the Express website. I thought the jeweled hardware was gorgeous, but was not sure if the look would fit my style.

I ordered it anyway (on sale), and on this day I gravitated to it when my hair would not co-operate. Yes ladies, I was having an epic bad hair day! This headband was magic!!! It looked classy and fresh, while covering the hot mess underneath!

Yes ma’am, I recommend, snag one for the emergency days, it would work for short hair, long hair, up dos and ponytails too!  enjoy! xoxo

Trenching through the cold!

I absolutely LOVE trench coats!

In an effort to combat my winter blues, wearing coats and scarves that I like makes the cold days a bit more bearable.

The trusted trench coat does it for me. I rock different lengths, styles and textures, but I wanted to show you my favorite one.

I love everything about this Kenneth Cole trench that I had for quite a few years, but still looks good every season because of its retro, timeless vibe.

I love the knee length, and I paired it with a floor length pair of wide legged, dark denim trousers, along with brown boots in the same color family.

Of course you can rock your trench in a length that suits you, and pair it with trousers for a polished look, or with jeans for a more casual look.

Let me know your preference, and thanks for watching! xoxo

Blue on Blue

So as the weather changes, and the warm days slowly trickle into cooler days, I wanted to take a moment to highlight one of the outfits I enjoy putting together on a warmer September day; a monochromatic look.

In my book, the monochromatic look always works! It is one of my absolute favorite ways of wearing my outfits.

Sure it may not be for everyone, but in a moment of feeling like a color is on your mind, try it. The colors do not have to be an exact match, but they should be in the same color family.

With that being said, I was feeling blue happy that day! So I put together this outfit.

The pants and shirt are not exact color matches (though they are very close), but I paired them together, and added a darker shade of navy blue shoes to tone the light blue down a bit. Then I dared a bit more and added teal blue belt and bright blue purse, none of which are exact matches!

To me it worked! So if you’re feeling a color, just go for it! Live each day with some color!

 

 

(Sidebar; so l have to tell you about the shoes! I saw this pair of shoes on MACY’S website and fell in “I have to have it” so I put it in my cart. However I was not willing to pay full price for it, so I began stalking it online to buy it when it went on sale. Shortly after I went to visit my big sister in NY and she said, “oh I have a pair of shoes for you” lo and behold it was the pair of shoes sitting in my MACY’S cart online! Can you imagine! I guess me and these dolce vita shoes were meant to be together)

Reminiscing…..

So I thought it would be cool to show a snippet of years gone by, actually, I caught myself reminiscing!

I went through quite a bit of photos, and yes I wore yellow back then, this is not a fad.

Though my style and taste have evolved tremendously over the years, I was always confident in my outfits (you can tell from the pics)

.

I loved keeping up with the trends, and putting my own spin on it. These pics are all taken over 10 years ago so please excuse the lower quality (I had to take a photo of a photo).

I must admit though, that I could only find a couple pics with my mid section covered!

A step back in time, enjoy!!!

White pants after LABOR DAY

Years ago I used to conform to some “Fashion rules” and not wearing white pants after Labor Day was one I used to follow.

Years ago I used to conform to some “Fashion rules” and not wearing white pants after Labor Day was one I used to follow.

However, lately I started asking myself, why not wear what I want to wear, when I want to wear it???

I decided then that I can absolutely wear white pants after Labor Day, and so can you!

Of course your main focus should be comfort and warmth on the crisper days, so I suggest long pants. If the pants are thin in texture (cotton for example), simply add a tights or leggings under the pants for layering.

Now we get to style our white pants outfit! I would throw on a fall color poncho that are popular again these days. Fall color scarf, jacket or bag can also pull together the white pants without looking like you are stuck in summer.

Ankle boots, or sneakers are my footwear options of choice, depending on my mood.

Of course you can rock an ALL white outfit if you dare, but white pants are definitely a yes, yes after Labor Day!
