It has been several days since my last post due holiday traveling and time focused to family, however, today while being on the road, I found time for sharing this look that I wore to the Nutcracker ballet.
Instead of wearing a black dress as I always do for this type of occasion, I decided to wear a jumpsuit with a sequined cardigan. It was a refreshing look for me, since I haven't wore a long jumpsuit (overalls only) since I was a teenager.
As I mentioned before in this blog, plaid is one of my favorite patterns and once in a while I enjoy mixing it with other fun prints. This time, I felt like going full Scottish, so I decided to wear two pieces with minimal silhouttes and with different tartan plaid.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
In my opinion, the first piece of clothing that most people notice on you during the cold months of the year is your coat, and with that in mind, I keep eye out for beautiful and fun pieces when I shop.
For example, this vintage coat immediately got my attention, due to its striking shade of blue, classic shape and impeccable craftsmanship. I was lucky to find this coat in a recent visit to Grand Rapids, MI at a wonderful vintage store called Lost & Found for a very reasonable price.
In this occasion, I decided to wear it with similar happy colors and a tropical printed skirt in order to brighten a such gloomy morning.
Taupe is a color between grey and brown, therefore a wonderful and versatile neutral color. I recently made a purchase of this taupe sweater with the intent to pair it with most of my pants and my taupe suede pumps (matchy-matchy is back). So, that's exactly what I did in this opportunity. I chose teal pants in order to bring a little bit of color to this look and I also decided to wear bold and ethnic accessories, which added an interesting touch to this urban look.
Whoever believe that a patterned garment with birds should not be worn around this time of year may not have encountered one with a flock of elegant black swans. This skirt completely stole my heart and not only because of the beautiful birds floating and flying around with cute crowns, also because of its beautiful full and feminine shape.
As soon the skirt arrived, I knew I wanted to pair it with a simple turtleneck and a biker leather jacket. I decided to wear my Chelsea boots in order to keep the look more urban and grounded.
It has been almost a week without posting an outfit on my blog due to busy holiday traveling, however I have been posting updates in my Instagram daily.
One of the places I visited this past week was Chicago (I never get enough of it) and this is one of the looks I wore while in the area. That day was around 45 degrees and the wind was mild, so I was able to put away my beanie hat and my puffer and sport around a more stylish coat.
