Brighten up winter



Coat: Kenneth Cole (similar) | Scarf: Old Navy (option) | Necklace: Stella and Dot (option) | Top: Annie Griffin (option, option) | Skinnies: Forever 21 (similar) | Boots: Coach | Watch: Kate Spade | Bracelet: Stella and Dot

You guys. You have no idea how excited I was to be able to walk out in the middle of the street! Oh, the little things. Road conditions were so much better today; so much so that UPS finally delivered packages after a 3 day hiatus!  It was like Christmas coming home to a doorstep O goodies!

I decided to wear this top today because I needed to bring a little brightness to our ridiculous winter weather. I bought it a couple of months ago in Atlanta, and it's quite perfect! I'm bummed because my cousin in law saw this picture I posted on Instagram, and said that she loved the color combo with the wine skinnies! The picture made my pants look wine. As you can see, they're just dark denim. But I was bummed because wine skinnies would have been genius with this outfit! Next time, next time.

The last time I wore this coat was back when we got our first snow. It's the best coat to brighten up your mood, that's for sure. A co-worker said it looked "sharp." Yep, sharp. I do concur.

Are you all caught up with everyone over at the last installment of the Holiday Style series? If not - check it out here. I'm proud to say that I've upheld two of my new year's resolutions so far - my nails are painted a pretty midnight blue right now AND I registered for my first Pilates class on Saturday! SO excited! And for all you bloggers - don't forget, Manic Monday starts… well, Monday! So be sure to link up!

  2. yaaay for your packages finally arriving! and i've been kind of doing the same- sneaking in some brights here and there to battle the tundra dreariness, haha. i've always admired how j crew was able to add in super cotton candy brights into their winter attire so effortlessly, i think you nailed it here!

  7. Cobalt Blue and Turquoise is a nice combination. I know what you mean about being able to stand in the streets again, I stood on the last pile of snow in the front yard this morning. Have a wonderful day.

    1. We had a ton of rain that washed away a lot of the snow, but there's still quite a bit left. It just leaves everything muddy and soggy :( How many more days til spring?

    1. Aww - I was actually thinking this the other day. As I was packing on layers one morning, I felt sad for everyone who doesn't have the luxury of layering in the colder months! Because it's so much fun! That being said, I'm ridiculously jealous of your weather right now!!

    1. Ha! Well, I don't know about you, but in the morning, I am so hot running around getting ready. To be honest, it felt quite nice stepping outside real quick without the jacket. Had it taken longer than 2 minutes, I would have started freezing, but it was fine for the short time! Natural light is just so much better for pictures, I had to take one without the coat!
      Thanks so much for reading!

  10. I need this coat! Although it is now 75 degrees here in Sugar Land, maybe by Spring we will finally have a Winter.

    Enjoy your day!!
