Yep, we’re back to dresses… dresses that I can’t wear now, but still dresses.
I am in deep love with this Peter Som dress. At first glance, it looks sort of “matronly.” It reminded me of cleaning out my Great Aunt’s closet, which was full of stylish-for-the-times knit/polyester blend dresses. But close up, this dress is cotton, slightly sheer and features a “rainbow” of blue shades that are some of my faves.
Still not convinced? Check it out here on Rachel McAdams with a creamy, demure coat and cap-toe pumps!
Everyone knows the trench is a time-honored staple.
Trenches are a timeless wardrobe piece that every fashionista needs in her (and his!) outerwear collection.
The traditional trench is khaki. Then came the pink or navy trenches with green and white polka dot linings. Or the yellow trench most commonly worn with Hunter Wellies.
But now an Eyelet Trench from Elevenses?! Anthropologie has the cutest blue and white eyelet trench for Spring. This trench is so feminine, but features military-inspired epaulets and a waist-cinching belt.
Better yet — It’s adorable over bright yellow capri pants as seen here.
While I’m not particularly against people wearing real fur, it’s not really my thing… but I do love a good faux fur jacket for it’s luxurious feel and chic style.
This fur jacket happens to be the real thing, but if you are vehemently against wearing real fur or would just prefer the low maintenance (and lower cost) of the faux persuasion, I’ve included a couple of cute alternatives.
Happy holidays bloggy friends — here’s to a well-dressed season!
While the three boys in my life share a basket of warm hats, gloves, mittens and scarves, I have my own.
Stocking caps, berets, scarves, snoods and more fill my cup… er basket, to overflowing.
Last winter when I replaced a too big winter puffer coat, I picked a charcoal gray one. I’ve been collecting fun and brightly-colored accessories ever since. And that’s why these Kate Spade fingerless merino gloves are on my list.
Of course, I love the turqoise blue color and the whimsical dot print. I also like they they are long, just in case I want to wear them with shorter sleeves or push them up inside my coat for warmth.
I love the retro shape. I love the mod-ish print. I love that it’s easy in cotton with a touch of silk-blend pizzazz. I adore the round neckline and mini collar. And I’m smitten with how it’s shown here over something very short with black opague tights.
For a girl who adores toppers, this coat is definitely tops!
