Last year, I showcased one of my favorite color schemes to wear in the dead of Winter: January Blues. So this year, I thought it was only appropriate to update the look for 2019! Again, I looked at one of my favorite designers…Tibi!
A pleated midi skirt and a matching sweater is a ladylike combo that I love to wear to work and off-duty. I especially love the shade of this blue, because of the skirt trends more on a rich teal that pairs well with other jewel tones. The sweater has exaggerated sleeves that makes it more fashion-forward. To complete my look, I added some of my favorite accessories: an oversized rancher hat from Lack of Color and suede sandals from Maje that I picked up in Barcelona.
A common misconception about bloggers is that every outfit we post is a brand new look! Well, perhaps for some – but I love re-using pieces from past outfits, staples purchased years ago, and digging out pieces from the back of my wardrobe. That’s how real women dress, right? Sometimes it just takes a little creativity and some new accessories to make an old outfit new again.
For this look, I put a new spin on a jumpsuit you dolls have seen before. This time, instead of a fur stole I opted for my new (and affordable) blazer!
To make the look even more distinctive, I added my favorite new accessory of the season – a wool, wide-brimmed boater hat from Lack of Color. I feel a little Westworld in it, and I love it! Lack of Color has such a wide variety of styles, and they are quite affordable given the quality of the hats. This one, in particular, is still in stock, so make sure to check it out. I think I might need it in cream next!
While the jumpsuit is old, I’ve linked some similar styles on the market now. What do you dolls think? Tell me about your favorite items you like to re-use and re-wear!
