Pink puffer vest strikes again! Bright pinks like this and cheery blue gingham like this are the only things getting me through this horrid winter (ie. the only days it’s not snowing it’s raining with 40 mph wind instead). I’m looking forward to spring more than I can express in words, so right now I’ll let the vibrant colors and picnic-ready patterns do the talking…!
If this isn’t my personal style wrapped up into an outfit, I’m not sure what is. A whimsy printed dress, navy blue + kelly green color combo, pearls, bows, and Lilly? If my life were an occupation, this would be the uniform.
I’m not much of a skier, yet all winter I’ve been itching to get away up North and spend a weekend in a cozy ski town. Bundling up by the fire in a snowy lodge? That is one great think New England winters have to offer as severance pay…!
Last week we talked LBDs, but this week it’s Little White Dresses I have on my mind.
When the weather is warm, I just love slipping into easy breezy little white dresses [see here and here for past instances!]. Until summer hits, many choose to avoid white, though I fully believe LWDs can certainly still work in chillier months. I’ve seen a ton about winter white lately, and I’m a huge advocate for it, especially in dress form. A higher neckline, purer shade of crisp snow white, and wintery details all help with winter LWD’s case. French Connection has an overwhelming supply of women’s dresses, and I’ve pulled a few of my favorites.
New England was blessed with a very mild winter last year, with really our only snowstorm being on Halloween(!). This year though, I’m ready for the snow– bring on the crunch under my boots and the layers of sweaters to stay warm!
I’m still a teensy bit obsessed with pretty much any and all clothes // accessories sporting animal motifs. And while none of these knits are obviously holiday-themed, they all just seem so appropriate for this time of year. Pair a warm animal-printed jumper with leggings, boots, and hot chocolate, and you’ve got yourself a perfect winter wonderland look.
And while we’re on the subject of cozy knits, can we talk about the never-ending selection of knitware from online retailer Warehouse? I want to curl up in these jumpers and cardigans and not come out until it has reached at least 60 degrees again. Crushing on these gold buttons, striped sleeves, and fairisle.
I’ve been seeing a ton of ideas lately on pastels for winter. I think it’s the perfect transition trend– prepping for spring while staying true to snowy winter hues. Today’s OOTD inspiration comes from one of my fashion blogging icons, Atlantic-Pacific. Pastels, according to clothes, nails, and macarons…
