Winter does not always mean dark colors or the traditional holiday hues. As you saw earlier this year, I like to add a pop of the unexpected to my wintery wardrobe. Well, I’m doing it again and bringing pink back in a very bright way!
A cozy turtleneck is my favorite thing to throw on during chilly days! Besides the apparent comfort of an oversized sweater, the turtleneck brings a sense of polish to an outfit. And this one from Zara is less than $50! I paired my bright new sweater with simple distressed jeans and a metallic pump. To style my look, I finished it with matching bright lipstick, courtesy of Nars and an equally colorful rainbow bag! Winter just a little bit brighter!
Few colors inspire the colors of fall more than a bronzy, cinnamon color. I wanted to do a tonal look with different textures, and Zara was just the place to make this happen.
My coat is a wool version of a trench that has the potential to wrap and tie around the waist. However, my favorite pieces are what’s underneath! A bronze shimmery bodysuit and a pleated skirt in a similar copper shade.
While these pieces go perfectly together, they’re also so versatile to wear apart. I’ve already worn the skirt with chunky sweaters and a black turtleneck. The toffee-colored coat is a darker version of camel, which is the prettiest neutral this time of year. While I have the flexibility, my favorite is pairing these items together. In this instance, I think cinnamon and spice is looking quite lovely!
They say that there’s no place like home, and I firmly believe that. Every time I go back to Jacksonville I’m flooded with memories and the joy of being back home in Florida. One of my absolute favorite places on the planet happens to be at the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, the fine art museum in my hometown.
I have memories of going to art class there as a child, wandering the galleries as a teenager, and it really helping to shape my love of art history and creativity in general. But besides what’s hanging on the walls, the museum has one of the most spectacular gardens with an incredible view of the city. It’s my happy place!
So on a recent trip home, I was wearing a romantic lace skirt that I felt went perfectly with the museum’s scenery. Long maxi skirts aren’t a staple in my closet – but I loved the combination of the black and blush – the volume and whimsy of the shape. Because the skirt is kinda a lot – I paired my look with a simple Old Navy tank top and a vintage denim jacket. I topped it off with some statement earrings which are really on-trend for summer! What about you dolls? Do you have a special place that’s near and dear to your heart?
