BOLD. That is what I would call this look. Not necessarily bold because it's more unusual in the styling of each individual piece, but because of the color choices. The skirt I am wearing I bought last year on sale at one of my favorite online shops, ASOS. When I first put it on, I felt like Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City. (and let's just stop right now and admit we've all wanted to be like her at least one time in our lives!) I just love the look of the full skirt in this fun, bright, eclectic fabric. During the summer months, I typically style this skirt with a nice sandal or colorful pump with a knotted tee @ the waist. I wanted to challenge myself by "winterizing" the look. I am a HUGE fan of "winterizing" pieces of your wardrobe from spring/summer collections....because a girl's got to have options, right? RIGHT! (And let's not forget...we all don't have endless pockets to satisfy our every "winter wardrobe" piece desire!) So, that's where creativity helps! I added some warmth and depth to the look with the cardigan under the bright coat (leaving the coat open is such a cool look....and thank goodness I was in enough layers to actually pull it off and stay warm! :)) and added the blue scarf & knitted beanie to balance out my blue tights. Of course, the look would not be complete without these AMAZING fire-engine red ankle wedge boots. I am in love, you?
