To break free from my back-to-black wardrobe, I wanted to start adding colors back to winter and knew this purse was the perfect fit!
When everything is grey and black, it's so important to tie in those pops of color. You know, to keep your sanity. So a brightly colored bag and a neon head wrap can make such a huge difference. Not to mention you'll be a standout in a sea of blah! This outfit is a total departure from what I've been wearing (which has been tights, leggings, a skirt, a shirt, a sweater, and another sweater - no joke) and it felt good to be in something that didn't make me feel like a bag lady again! It's really the right details that can make winter work for you.
Bright bag - Target (it is no where as orange as it looks on the site)
Aztec Dress - Local boutique
Honestly, when it comes to winter wear, I've get everything down but the leg coverings. I just invested in a collection of fleece lined leggings, but you still need to wear tights under those to be warm in the tundra. I have realized through this particularly cold one the few things any fashion-savvy girl needs to survive:
- Tights and leggings. LOTS of them. Preferably a whole drawer full.
- Wool socks. In all patterns and colors.
- A couple pairs of water proof boots.
- A great collection of sweaters.
- Knit skirts.
- A collection of bulky scarves, hats, and gloves. You can never have too many!
