The notion of a dark winter wardrobe crashed as hard as the snow on this chilly Aspen day.
Winter threads should not be synonymous with darkness! Just because it takes an extra eight minutes in your hot morning shower to motivate, or an extra layering piece is required, or an extra slice of pizza requested, does not mean that darkness should prevail in this chilly time!
In fact, often the lighter the winter wardrobe, the chicer the look.
Take for example, my mix-and-match of an off-white and grey faux leather and fur coat, mixed with a grey hat, stark white jeans, and a blush pink sweater. Each of these hues scream St. Barth's summer vacation! Yet, it works for winter... very well.
Test your devotion to chic winter style by investing in a wardrobe that will keep you classic from season to season. A year-round pair of perfect white jeans will do just that!
Oh, and hi! My Rebecca Minkoff booties that I'm wearing here, and haven't taken off all winter (and don't plan on taking off for all spring/summer either) are now 50% off here!
We went to Aspen for the first week of March. The weather was mid to high 40's, even on top of the slopes! So what immediately came to mind? FashUN! I wanted comfy, cozy, cool.
So I did. An oversized glam t-shirt, chunky over the knee socks, and a fur so fabulous that it deserves its own post. It was passed down to me just the evening before I left on the trip, from my mother-in-law who handed it down to me from her mother-in-law. It must be 75 years old. Score!!
The look is a little street, a little sass, and a whole lotta Après Chic!
Sometimes you see a trend in a magazine, on the internet, on social media...and ask yourself-- is it fleeting? Is it worth the splurge?
Such was the case with the over the knee red boot that I started to see on the New York runways for fall 2017 collections (way back in spring 2017). By September, I knew I loved it, but I just wasn't sure if it would last.
When I make a trend investment, contrary to the opinion of many, I like to invest in the best version of the trend, instead of the "H&M" version. This way, as the trend starts to evaporate, you don't actually own the trend-- you own a "piece of art" that never goes out of style, rather than a cheap copy that gets thrown in the giveaway pile.
So fast forward when I saw these Valentino boots, I knew destiny was staring me straight in the face. And that's the short tale of how I met my favorite boots. xoxo
