Bright Colors in Winter
All About the Outfit: Greetings from a very snowy Denver! These photos were taken a week or so back, ha. I actually take photos a bit in advance (typically) so I can style my favorite pieces, especially since my audience wildly prefers me in dresses and skirts (though that is changing, thank-you Instagram followers!) and unpredictable weather can hinder my ability to do so! I admit that I push dresses in chillier weather than most, but not on a 19 degree day like today ha! But today I wore something similar to this, if you want to see me in a jean based outfit on Insta!
ANYWAY, I got this skirt over one of the ModCloth Black Friday sales. I was nervous about the sizing as they only had a small option and these days I float between small and extra small, but I feel like skirt fits pretty well! (I'm roughly a 25 inch waist these days, for measure). Since this skirt is so summery and festival appropriate, you probably won't see it again until at least spring! But for now I tried to winterize it a bit! Honestly, winter is not my jam! Not only do I detest being cold, but I'm never truly on my A game in the fashionista department in the colder months. I feel like whenever I wear tights and sweaters I end up coming across frumpier the way I style a whole outfit, regardless of how chic each individual piece is. One of these years I'll figure it out, ha! I'm only luke warm on this outfit (I next to never like myself in tights unless they're black tights for some reason...) but I liked it enough to not scrap the post and share it with you guys! Anyone else have issues dressing themselves in the winter?!
New Years: In case you missed it, I had a New Year's post about the changes (via resolutions) I wish I could see in the world. CLICK HERE to read that, as well as my first ever Behind the Memes post from a few weeks back (a new monthly series trying to humanize viewpoints because the world has become batsh*t and we all look at each other like caricatures) as my New Year's post is sort of a supplement post to the new series. Also, Just Shair did a New Year's video (and have a fake resolutions one coming), so watch below please if you're up for some laughs!
Style Details: I'm obsessed with mixing prints, y'all! I think I'm mildly addicted, haha. I also mixed accessory themes, with planetary and elephants! Sorry, not sorry 😜
Cardigan- J Crew Factory
Shirt- Gap (similar)
Bag- Kate Spade (similar)

I hope everyone is having a great (and warm!) week! The bad news about this time of year (for the northern hemisphere, at least) is that it's chillier and darker than usual. The good news is that from each day forward it gets darker out a bit later and we are that much closer to spring and summer! Ha, hope that helps a little if you're miserable! XO
