Hey hey and happy Thursday gang! How’s everyone doing today? I don’t know about you guys, but I am COLD! It has been so insanely cold here in the Philly area the last couple of days! The last night was 0°… ZERO… with a Z. Is it cold where you’re at too? Stay warm regardless!
SWEATER, similar here, here, here and here (most similar) | JEANS, similar here, here and here (all 3 are the same brand and fit that I’m wearing) | BOOTIES, also available here, similar for less here | WHITE COAT, similar here and here | BEANIE, similar here (only $15!) | SCARF, similar here ($7), here ($15) and here ($12)
Something that you guys may or may not know about me is that I love mixing casual and dressy pieces. It’s a great way to give a simple look a bit of flare! It’s also fun to be unexpected sometimes! Like, for example, this look may be a little more simple if I wore a pair of sneakers instead of dress booties or if I wore white skinny jeans instead of distressed mom jeans. But the distressed jeans and nice booties are a really fun contrast to each other!
I knew I wanted to pair the booties and the jeans together as a way to mix casual and dressy pieces so, from there, I decided to play on the lighter color palette. I wore a nude sweater to make the booties pop a bit and my white coat was a great way to keep things light. This scarf just happened to be a nearly perfect match with the light nude stripes so I wore it to tie the coat in with the nude tones. My white pom pom beanie just made the look a little more fun so I couldn’t pass it up. 😉
Do you like mixing casual and dressy pieces? How do you like to do that in the winter? Granted, this outfit may not be entirely appropriate for today’s weather but, in my defense, it was in the upper 40’s when Charlie and I took these photos so it actually was quite suitable for those temps, hehe. Thanks for reading today! I hope y’all stay warm and I’ll see ya next time!
