Usually in the winter I am wearing nothing but black, but this winter I have been gravitating to a lot of color. My outerwear this season definitely reflects my switch from mostly black to color. This season there has been an explosion of great coats in plus- especially in colored fur!
This lilac number is a cutie. I was eyeing it for a while, but was telling myself that I have a lot of coats and maybe I don’t need it. Then something happened….the coat went on sale for $43 dollars. Like who is going to turn down a coat that went down from close to $200 to less than $50? I ordered it immediately. I ordered the 18/20 and it fits well. Note, the coat just has a hook closure in the middle so make sure you have a good scarf for those chilly days to wrap around your neck.
I was having brunch with my bestie so I kept it cute and casual with my 80’s inspired sweatshirt from Target and a pair of denim. When it comes to my weekend wear, I keep it low key. Sweatshirts have been a go to for me as of late. Since it is still Winter (Just a couple more days!!!), I wear sweatshirts since they are warmer than wearing tops and you can easily layer them. Also, you can wear them all year long. I definitely suggest investing in a couple of sweatshirts. One of my favorite combo’s is wearing them with a cute skirt, or some ripped up jeans with pumps. Just add some white accessories like these cute sunnies (less than $10), and you are good to go!
There is no secret that I am sneaker girl. Growing up, I lived for sneakers. I wore them with everything. It drove my mom crazy. Now that I am thinking about it, I was ahead of my time. There were plenty of times I was rocking a cool pair of sneakers with a dress or skirt. There were not too many shoes I liked growing up. In the 90’s everything was a platform of some sort, so when it came to shoes, I only wore them when it was necessary. Now that I am in casual work environment, I can play around with color more, so I have been doing so with my sneaker choices. When i saw these Puma’s in my feed, I fell in love. Colorful like an Easter Egg, these work with so many things in my closet. Now The Puma Toy RS-X run a little small, so I went with a size 8.5 instead of my normal size 8 in sneakers. Not ready to go full on color? These do come in other colorways that can definitely work with your comfort level.
What are some of the ways you are incorporating more pastel colors in your life? Are you all about it, or you just keep it simple with a top?
