Mom's Winter Must Haves: Bold Coats and Knit Hats/Headbands.

This week LAURA from I Do DeClaire and I are styling 2 items for you. We are featuring (in the same Outfit) Bold Coats and Knits or Hats to keep our heads warm with, for Winter time. Both of these Outter-wear pieces are Must Haves for a Mom come Winter time, especially with the freezing cold temperatures and all the snow, that USA is experiencing lately. Once again I am posting a little later but it has been a busy day planning for Vivian's 1st Birthday Photo Shoot & her Birthday Party happening this weekend & next weekend. There are not enough minutes on the day.
Week one Laura and I styled Cozy Sweaters and Sweater Dresses, week two we styled Puffer Vests and on week three we styled Fair Isle. For our Bold Coats I am showing you a Bold Color & Laura is doing a Fun Print. Having on a Bold Coat for Winter makes one happier and makes those long, dark days of Winter look brighter and full of sunshine. I have on a Beanie Hat while Laura has on a Knitted Headband. Her Outfit is extremely pretty and dressy. Though she is bundled up in her coat and standing in the middle of the icy cold snow, the details of her Dressy Outfit are beautiful: Floral Black Tights, Black Heels, Cute Teal Headband with a Feather and even a Matching Teal, Knit Scarf peeking from underneath her Gorgeous Plaid Coat. A Coat like Laura's, I will be on the look-out for, to add for next Winter. Check out Laura's Outfit even better.

While I have on a very Casual Outfit styling my Bright Mustard Coat and Neutral Ivory-Beige Beanie Hat with a Matching Mustard Knit, Infinity Scarf, a Burnt Orange Cardigan, Velvet Black+White Polka Dot Leggings and my Cognac Riding Boots who have been a staple on my Winter closet for the third year, now. This Outfit was worn running errands and taking Vivian for a stroll ride during the day on New Year's Eve. It was chilly that day so the layers and Winter Accessories were indeed necessary. How do you like my Simple, Casual Outfit? Doesn't Mustard and Burnt Orange look Perfect together? Do you own any Bright Bold Coats? How do you wear them? Tomorrow, I am posting the last recap of 2013's Best Outfits. Better Late than never. =D
