Working on the winter blues

Girl! I am soooo tired of the cold weather, and I am seriously jonesing for some warmth and color!

After spending months wearing winter darks, I decided to go completely left and colorize my out fit.

I started with bright cobalt blue tights and constructed two very cool outfits around it. I know it was a stretch but I wanted to push myself and see where the color took me.

The day was warmish so I wore knee length jeans and sneakers. I also dabbled with another outfit centered around my fabulous blue tights and grey jersey skirt.

I know all my ladies will not be so brave, but if you dare to be, join me in the pursuit of life in color!

ps. my tights came from Old Navy

Simple fashion styling through the winter

Winter is here, and lately she has been very indecisive; two days freezing, three days warm, and my wardrobe and I are left confused!

So, on a not so cold day in February I rocked this outfit; light leather jacket paired with my olive tall boots to add a little color to the all black.

Ladies, just flow with the weather and keep it moving!

What do you think?IMG_2989IMG_2973IMG_2983IMG_2971IMG_2985IMG_2986IMG_2990

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
