Winter Blooms

6 Feb

Sunday: Just thinking ahead to Spring with this outfit.  I purchased this skirt a while ago (don’t remember when but it’s been sitting in my closet untouched until now). I was attracted to the allover flower print and the vibrant colors. I love the flouncy, girliness of the siloutte. The pockets just sealed the deal even more! The floral skirt is something that can be easily be taken from Spring to Winter. It is silk with a polyester underlay. I wore it with the tights, a turtleneck and boots to transition it to Winter. I kept the look mostly classic by adding the pearl necklace and earrings. The updo with the beaded headband also gives the look an overall classic feel. The boots mixes things up so it’s not too prim and proper looking (didn’t realize when I purchased them that Valentino Garavini has an almost identical pair but the heel is a little different; sorry can’t remember where I saw them).  And of course when you throw on a leather jacket it instantly adds a little edge to any outfit. So when it comes to getting the most wear out of your wardrobe, you can add and subtract pieces to have your clothes go from Spring/Summer to Fall/Winter as I did in my look today. If I wanted to wear this skirt in the warmer months, it will also look good with a tee/tank and a pair of flat sandals or a cute wedge. You could also dress it up a little bit with a crisp white button down and a pair of classic pumps or strappy sandals. A skirt like this has endless styling possibilities, you just have to try out different pieces until you find something that works for you and the occasion/situation. Now back to the Super Bowl (well, not really watching, just catching commercials and waiting for Madonna’s half-time performance-I’m enjoying the Sex and the City marathon instead)! Enjoy what’s left of your weekend! Thanks for reading and all your comments!
