I was so excited when Gina pulled together some outfit inspiration for styling white skinnies in the winter. I LOVE wearing white pants year round, especially in the winter. It breaks up the monotony of all the darks, and when paired with a pop of cognac like this - it looks crisp and fresh. My outfit today is a direct translation of Kellie's look.

Kellie totally hit it on the head in her post when she talked about how sometimes simple outfits are the best. I'm definitely one for layers and pattern mixing - usually at the same time. I just love pairing pieces in unexpected ways and giving the eye multiple things to look at. When I was brainstorming all the outfits I could create with my capsule, I came up with about 25 or so. Funny enough, this top plus white skinnies was not one of them! Thank goodness Kellie reminded me to keep things simple.

And you guys know how to make a girl feel loved. Thanks for all the sweet notes yesterday about wanting to hear more about me! I will definitely see what I can do for all those inquiring minds! I do appreciate all the comments, and I'm sorry I haven't been able to tour around blogland as much as I would have liked this week! The husband has been traveling this week (since Sunday to be exact), which means I have to drive myself to work!! We usually carpool, and I use that 45 minutes or so to and from work to catch up on social media and blog reading. Needless to say, my whole routine is flipped when I lose almost 2 hours of my day to physically driving myself! But really, thanks for everything!

  1. very true the simple outfits are the best! I wished I could carpool with someone, I drive 2 hours daily :/


  2. I really love these white skinny jeans. Really so cute.
    I have a fashion question that I am hoping you can help me with. We are going to a country concert (Garth Brooks) at the end of the month. I only have short cowboy boots and need to wear pants with them since it is still freezing here in Michigan. Should I roll them or tuck them in o the boots? Also can I just wear a button down plaid shirt or what are your suggestions to look cute, country-ish and fashionable? We are taking big clients from my husbands work and I need to look put together. Thanks! Christina

    1. Oh I went to the Garth concert and it is amazing!!! I wore my buffalo plaid top, scuba leggings, and black booties with triple buckles. A moto jacket which I quickly took off because I was hot from scream singing and dancing! If you don't think faux leather leggings will be professional enough- you could always just do black jeans- depending on how fitted they are at the ankle, I prefer to just tuck them into short boots. And maybe a plaid top like you suggested with either the moto jacket, or even a blazer would work. Hope that helps! Have fun!! I'm so jealous!

    2. I didn't even think about a moto jacket. That will be perfect! Thank you!

  3. I love wearing white jeans year round! I avoided white jeans for a long time because I thought I would ruin them because I am a magnet for mess...and I have a 2 year old whose hands are always into something...and then onto me! lol!

  4. Ahh!! I love this! It doesn't even read "simple" to me because of the details on the sweater and the jewelry and the choice of cognac booties. It's stylish and current-classic! PERFECT.
