Why not wear pastels in the winter? At least that’s my motto this season. I usually go for black when it comes to the holidays, but recently I’ve been having a bit more fun with fashion and with dressing, in general. I have been challenging myself to think of more creative ways to wear my closet, and I’m loving the pay off. This is a great outfit for inspiration if you are heading straight from work to a holiday party.
I found this red leather pencil skirt at the Melrose Flea Market years ago, and believe it or not I’ve never worn it until now. I styled it with this festive blue, printed pussy bow blouse – an absolute favorite style of mine! The print on the blouse is super cute and reminds me of Christmas light strands, making it perfect for a holiday cocktail party. I love a sneaky, cheeky nod to the season 🙂
For the coat, I really wanted something fresh, so I decided to mix blues and layer on a structured light blue coat. Unexpected, but it works. I really like the juxtaposition of the almost harsh red leather with the soft light blue.
Whenever I wear a pencil skirt, I’ve gotta wear a nude heel. My legs can look so short and stumpy if I wear the wrong shoe with a pencil skirt! #Shortgirlproblems. Shop the gallery I put together below and let me know what you think about my outfit!
