Monotone

Although I enjoy adding a splash of color to almost any outfit, some days, I just want to wear something simple and unpretentious. To give this outfit an interesting depth, I mixed just enough different textures and neutral shades. I know what you’re thinking – Isn't it a bit cold for bare legs =)? Growing up in the Midwest, I am used to the cold. As long as the sun is shining, it’s not too bad.

 

What I am wearing:
Skirt: H&M *old* (buy similar - available in 00)
Sweater: GAP (buy this year's version - 35% off)
Pumps: Steve Madden (buy similar in nude or navy)
Jacket: Espirit *old* (buy similar - on sale)

  5. Sydney, I am totally the opposite! I consider it "hella" cold in SF when it's in the high 40s even if the sun is out. I was in Socal yesterday and love their 65 degree weather so much better. this is such a lovely neutral outfit. I'm with you when it comes to wearing colors.

  6. That sweater is perfect with the snow! I personally usually go bare legged too...I really don't think tights add much warmth anyway!

  7. I agree, I will always be a neutral lover at heart! Pops of color keep things looking fresh and fun, but nothing is more chic (in my opinion) than a neutral outfit. You look great!

  8. Always like a good chunky cowl neck. The scenery in your photos are gorgeous. Wish I had your same tolerance to the cold as you do!

  13. When a woman has legs as fabulous as yours I think she pretty much has a duty to keep them bare - snow is no excuse for covering up :-)
