Who said you can’t wear neutrals in the winter is beyond me. Screw the rule of thumb of no white after Labor Day. That’s just a bunch of baloney to me. I’m the one to wear white all year long, just no white dresses! (unless it’s a sweater dress) You still have to be cautious with your skin tone, you can look real pasty in the winter when you wear white. No one looks good like that. Here’s the new rule of thumb when wearing naturals…
1. Add a pop color
2. Mix match prints
3. wear different textures to your natural outfit i.e.: Sherpa, suede, velvet, chunky sweaters, wool or faux leather
4. Add accessories such as a belt, boots, fun tote bag, vest or a coat
This darling outfit that I’m wearing is a favorite in my closet. I got this color blocked sweater from The Mint Julep Boutique. It fits true to size and can be worn so many ways. Another way to style this sweater is by front tucking it into a grey skirt, wear it with white corduroys, skinny jeans, with leggings or layered over a chambray dress. It literally can be dressed up or down, whichever way you want!! That’s the best part about this darling sweater. Oh, and did I mention the sleeves? They are a balloon style sleeve, which add the perfect about of detail to your outfit. If there’s one item to choose this winter for your wardrobe, it has to be this!
I paired this sweater with boots and white jeans and it looks so cute!! It was super cold that day so I threw on this coat from J.Crew. If you’re shopping for a coat, y’all need this one. I got mine on sale, but J.Crew Mercantile holds sales constantly, so you’ll get a deal no matter the time or season.
I always love shopping online, I don’t know about y’all. I find it more unique than shopping at a big retailer. The Mint Julep has the cutest pieces this season. Obsessing isn’t a strong enough word in my book! If you’re not familiar with The Mint Julep Boutique, you need to be! Shop the cutest things from there HERE!
I hope y’all are having a GREAT holiday season so far. We are in traveling to Carlsbad for Christmas with my family and literally can not wait!! We leave on my birthday.,, y’all my b-day is next week… I am SOOO excited. Time has flown by, I’m already 27 (laughing to my self)
Love from Texas,
