Winter Winds

Oxblood was one of my favorite trends this winter. I loved this skirt and have featured it in past blog posts. For a day out in Chicago, I bundled up in layers and wore this skirt with a chambray shirt. I love combining chambray with skirts and more feminine pieces. For me it keeps the menswear trend more girlie and polished. What were some of your favorite winter trends?

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.
