Keeping it Real

Winter Pastels White Gray Blue

Winter whites and pastels are having quite the moment. It may be that spring is right around the corner, and we are ready to transition to softer and smoother colors as opposed to some of the more dramatic colors of the winter.

In the combo above, we’ve also tried to keep all pieces on the affordable end, so this is very much an achievable look after the havoc that the holidays may have caused on your bank account. Henri Bendel and Michael Kors have been my go-to alternatives for accessories that are always on trend, at very reasonable prices. Also, Topshop has done a great job of bringing European “cool” to the States, and their prices are generally easy on the wallet. Their collection at Nordstrom is definitely something to keep your eye on.

So, about this outfit… The coat is a statement piece, so I’m always inclined to keep all other pieces a little muted. The powdery gray tone of the accessories supports the soft blue of the coat nicely, creating a soft palette of colors. Loving the jewelry here as well. I’m especially excited about the mixed-metal MK bangle – what a lovely Cartier alternative.

Winter in the City

Winter Outfit Navy Burgundy

When it comes to winter style, clean lines and lady-like structure is a beautiful go-to combo. These burgundy Armani pants capture this perfectly. Their bold color and structure can carry the outfit, so pairing them with a crisp white shirt and elegant heels is sufficient. We looove the combination of burgundy and navy. In fact, we’ve been a little obsessed with navy this fall/winter season… This coat and bag are absolutely divine and complement the rest of the outfit beautifully. Simple, classic jewelry complete the look.
