Red, White and Gray

IMG_1477For me, winter fashion is simple, elegant and warm. I love this outfit because it feels so simple and easy, but has little feminine details that make it put-together. I love the creamy white of the sweater, which makes it ever so appropriate for the winter months. The dress has lovely lace neck detail that keeps it from being too plain. One of my favorite added touches is the splashes of red. I can find it so difficult to include color into my January wardrobe, but I find small accept colors to do the trick.

Deserted

IMG_1268Maroon has been one of my favorite colors of this season. I love the soft, velvet material in this pleated skirt. To keep it from looking too precious, I paired it with a white tank adorned with gold studs. My personal style tends more to be on the girlie/preppy side of things and I usually steer clear of studding. However, this shirt included studs in such a simple subtle manner that works perfectly for me. I also like that the shirt is white, so it keeps the studding from looking too dark and Gothic-inspired.

Rainy Day Works

IMG_0692

In California, when it rains… it pours. I find it becomes so easy to slip into the usual routine of wearing jeans, a sweater, wellies and a raincoat. A great way I’ve found to branch out of this is by donning a trench. I always feel so grownup when I wear a trench coat, they are very sophisticated. Wearing a trench can make a usual jeans and tee ensemble more polished. I like to wear mine with a simple a-line dress and some fun flats.
