Flounce, Texture, Colorblocking and Crystals.

Good morning you all. It is 17 degrees as I am typing this, which equals to NEGATIVE FREAKING 8 CELSIUS DEGREES. We had our coldest night yet (last night) so far this season. Needless to say our Autumn was short-lived and Winter is here and as much as I love having seasons, I am not looking forward to 6 months of this. You will be seeing many photos inside where the natural lighting is good - like by my fireplace or this corner in the main hallway as you enter through the front door - because let's face it with weather conditions and brutal cold, I won't always be able to shoot outside, unless all I show is coats, beanies, gloves, mittens, blanket scarves and Eskimo-dressing lol.

I know that green was supposed to be a huge color in 2018 but I kept seeing yellow and mustard everywhere. And of course all shades of millennial pink, rose gold, soft pink and blush, at every store, for everything. You all know I have worn a ton of millennial pink this year. But a close second would be yellow. I happen to love the combo of yellow with blush pink and for Fall+Winter I love  mustard with blush pink. I have worn this combination a lot. As a matter of fact in the Summer of 2017 I did a little wardrobe capsule and I included some light pink and some yellow items and wore them together a lot. I love how this work outfit turned out. The Light Chiffon Button-Front Blouse with all that flounce is feminine, but with that sturdy Corduroy Button-Front Mini Skirt is the perfect juxtaposition. The skirt and my Chevron Tights are from Loft while the blouse and my Gorgeous Blush Velvet Crystal-Embellished Booties are from the "Who What Wear" line at Target, specifically two stores I shop a lot at and the WWW brand at Target is my favorite brand they carry, actually. I love all the flounce, textures, interest and colorblocking going on here. Not only is this a good look for work (business casual) but also a little dressier version for Thanksgiving if you are going with a dressy look this year (without being over the top). What do you think?! Speaking of Thanksgiving: I shared a Thanksgiving Outfit on the blog yesterday and it was more on the casual side and less colorful lol (neutrals). That post was part of my Holiday Series 2018 where I will be joined by my closest and dearest stylish blogging friends all this holiday season. =)
