14 Feb THT-The Color of the Year for Valentine’s Day
I mentioned yesterday, that I have been on the pink bandwagon lately. Vivid Magenta as the color of the year has me yearning for additional pieces for my wardrobe.
Vivid Magenta Tweed Jacket Styled for Valentine’s Day
In yesterday’s post, I shared one of my new tweed blazers, and I will keep just one. Today’s blazer is from Zara, and I do like how it nips in at the waist a bit more. Vibrant pink, and tweed, I had to pair it with this older Ann Taylor skirt that brightens these winter days, and has me longing for Spring.
My Look with This Tweed jacket
1980’s called and want their shoulder pads back! Shoulder pads here give it a strong look, as the shoulders are pronounced and the waist nipped Love the gold buttons and just the ease of how a great blazer can elevate a look. It is getting warmer here, but this is a great compromise, in the in between state as we edge toward the latter part of February.
Let’s say, you want to be more casual. A great pair of denim here, would look quite nice, especially in a lighter wash. Since the blazer is structured and has shape, the jeans could certainly be a wide leg or straight leg if you prefer.
I have a nice collection of blazers and always think they are a smart choice. You will see me step a bit out of the comfort zone next week, a bit.
Speaking of “comfort zone”, what will you do for Valetine’s Day? We went to Chicchettis, last weekend, as it is one of our favorite downtown wine bars and Italian small plates. So, we usually celebrate on an alternate day, or have a delicious meal with a choice bottle of wine. What are you up to?
My tweed blazer was yearning to accompany this pink floral print skirt. So, I couldn’t resist! I added a cream cami and some strappy heels to complete the look. One foot in Winter, the other in Spring. The green quilted Rebecca Minkoff bag plays off the floral leaves and stems of the skirt.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! Id love to hear how/if you celebrate it and what you wear. Let me know in the comments!
