Don’t Retire Your Sweaters or Boots Just Yet….

 

Spring is here, you’re ready to ditch your winter coat and bust out the pastels. One problem, April weather can be so unpredictable, especially in upstate New York. This outfit is perfect for one of those chilly days where the sun isn’t shining. I love this Alexxa sweater from Glamour and Glow in mustard. It’s super soft and has a perfect relaxed fit. I layered it over a plaid button down and paired it with my favorite pair of dark denim skinny jeans. And, I completed the look with these fabulous burgundy over-the-knee boots from Charlotte Russe. These boots have quickly become my favorite. They add a pop of color and can easily be worn with jeans, leggings, a skirt or dress.

Age Old Rules Don’t Apply

 

I am all for following the rules but not when it comes to fashion.  I believe that one’s wardrobe should be a reflection of their own personal style.  The age old rule that you can’t wear white after Labor Day is totally outdated. Fashion is ever changing and it doesn’t have to follow rules. The choice to wear white during any season is yours.

This look is just an example of how you can wear white during the winter months. I’m featuring white skinny jeans by BLANKNYC, a cream colored top from Express and layered with a denim button down and a super soft, beige, faux fur, vest (both staple pieces in my wardrobe).

It’s all about layering, especially with this wacky New York weather. When it’s 70 degrees one day and 20 degrees the next, you need to be prepared for anything, and layering is the answer. Simply add or take away a layer depending on the weather.  This denim button down is so versatile. It can be worn over a flannel, a tee shirt, on it’s own, or a dress….so basically anything. I even take it on vacation with me and throw  it on over my swimsuit by the pool.

Get your white on and layer away!
