For Winter Casual Days. When it gets cold and wet like it was earlier this week, I just want to be comfortable. I want to wrap myself in a wool sweater, a pair of loose-fitting jeans and some comfortable shoes. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t be comfortable and stylish.
For this outfit, I layered a belted cardigan over a simple white tee and boyfriend fit jeans. Instead of using the limp, lifeless belt provided, I would use the stretchy, leather belt. I just love grey and camel or grey and cognac together.
Add in a pair of rose gold sequin sneakers and rose gold jewelry to soften the look. I love the hammered nail ring. The bad carries some of the colors from the belt and shoes, but also ties in to the grey in the sweater.
For the hair, I would suggest a high, teased ponytail. For the makeup, a light tinted moisturizer, a cheek stain, mascara and some lip balm.
For Spring Workdays. I don’t know about you, but I am ready to start thinking about spring. I’m over the winter blahs and it’s not even February.
Here, I belted a vibrant blue dress with short sleeves to define the waist. I also added a turquoise chain necklace to play with the color palette. You can skip the necklace if you’re a minimalist, but add a colored stone earring, instead.
A basic neutral pump in patent leather will be your best friend this spring/summer. Also, how great is this tan leather bad with the metal corners? That’s a lot of style for under-$200.
For the hair, I would say a loose updo or half up-half down with a loose wave. For the makeup, a pink cheek, some illuminating highlighter on the cheekbones and light bronzer. Emphasis on the light.
