Do any of you find it harder to style clothes in Winter, especially when it’s freezing outside? When all you want to do is stay in warm leggings or joggers and cozy sweaters? Or in bed? As you know, I work from home and I have this problem. I can’t imagine how those of you who leave the house to go to your job in freezing weather do it. You ladies are brave, and I’m pretty sure stylish too!
Still on the hunt for some new white denim, I tried on the Stretch Reid Crop Jean in Chalk in a size 29. These were unfortunately not a good fit. They were a little bunchy in the front but tight in the thighs. They are to the floor and not cropped for me and a little see-through. The only place they fit was in the waist. So, I’m still searching for White Denim. I’ll keep posting any that I try on, especially if they were suggestions from my post.
The Andie Chino in Dusty Quartz is a nice peachy pink color. This color is not something I gravitate to, especially on bottom. These are a bit see-through for my darker skin tone but fit in my normal size 8. They are a great color for Spring and Summer.
The Swiss-Dot Pom-Pom Skirt in Dusty Pomegranate will be perfect for Fall. The color just screams Fall to me. I am wearing a size 6 which was perfect on me.
My VPS gave me the Embroidered Tassel Top in Arrow Print to try on with the Andie Chino’s. I wasn’t a fan. The fit was fine though I don’t recall the size, probably a 6. This seems too young or juvenile for me. I thought it might be the tassels so I tucked them away but I just think it’s the style overall. I did look cute with the Andie Chino in Dusty Quartz.
As promised, here are a couple more outfits that never made it to the camera for a full length shot.
I wore this when we took a trip to Dallas with The Boy to visit one of the Universities he is considering.
Andie Chino in Navy, 8
Silk Secretary Blouse in Hummingbird Floral, 8 (ebay find!)
Classic Schoolboy Blazer in Navy, 8
Cece Ballet Flats in Navy, 7
Michael Kors Crossbody
Le Bal d’Hiver Tee (old)
C. Wonder Stretch Skinny Blackwatch Jeans, 29
Darby Loafers in Calf-Hair Leopard, 7
This has been one of my favorite pairings and can’t wait to duplicate it once the weather is a little nicer. This would be super cute for our casual Christmas Eve or even New Year’s Eve during the day.
Have a Great Day!
The Brocatto Peplum Top was the only item on my Anthro wishlist I wanted to see using the Anthro Day 15% off. I ordered a Medium and should have probably chosen a Medium Petite. It’s loose in the shoulders and chest and then fits in the waist. The material is a beautiful brocade but does look a little like Grandmother’s couch. Also, the Peplum is a bit “peppy”
I love the color of the Roses and found so many items in my closet that would work with this top. I just don’t know if I love it enough to keep it or exchange it for a MP, so I’ll need your help deciding.
I originally didn’t care for pairing the Brocatto Peplum Top with the Fluted Skirt in Ivory because I had a Flare at the hip and then at my knees. But, now, seeing it in an image, I don’t think it looks that bad. What do you think? A pencil skirt or even the Sterling Skirt in Crimson Maple might be a better choice for this top.
Lastly, I have on the Flair Skirt in Double-Serge Wool in Navy, the Factory Clare Cardigan in Cabernet and my Louboutin’s in Cranberry. This is a nice look and the Clare Cardigan goes well with the top.
