31 Jan THT- Wearing Bright Color In the Winter Months
It’s time for some more color in these Winter Months.
Wearing Bright Color in the Winter
I suppose if you are a snow bunny, you are happy about Winter. I think I actually prefer a little snow here and there, as it adds some beauty to the otherwise bare, stark Winter. We do have sunshine. More than when I lived in Pittsburgh, but lately, there has been a lot of grey and rain! I blame my mother as she is down here, and I think she brought the Pittsburgh weather with her!
So, yes, going outside to catch a few rays would help, get that Vitamin D in , and in turn, may help our mood.
Another way to brighten the mood, is wearing color. Bright or saturated color is so nice to see in a sea of black, grey, or navy. (Not that there is anything wrong with that).
I have a classic camel coat, but I also have pink, red, and teal. And remember when i mentioned getting one of my favorite finally-worn-out cardigans as a repurchase on Poshmark? Well, oops I did it again! A couple of years ago I had to resign my Mango teal car coat due to all of the pilling. Guess what? I found it barely worn on Poshmark and here it is for a small price of $50! ( I did ask if it was bought at Mango, because I was thinking wouldn’t it have been funny if it was my actual coat that got cycled around?) Ha! Yes, it is like new, and I am a happy camper once more.
The dress is one of my Karina dresses in teal with a black geometic outline. I paired it with a Gibby scarf is complimentary colors. I chose to wear my taller over the knee black leather boots to keep the long leg line.
Do you like to wear color in the winter months? Does it help with your mood?

Poshmark for the win. And at what a fabulous price. That blue should be your signature color. Beautiful on you. The coat and gloves have a Jackie O. feel to me. Very chic.

We have had so much grey lately too. It really gets to you mood-wise. Hopefully we both get sunshine soon! Love your beautiful jewel colored dress! That is my daughter’s favorite color and one of mine as well!

I love teal (I wore a new teal sweater I thrifted yesterday) so this outfit just speaks to me! I do enjoy my colorful toppers. I haven’t really worn my coats this year but lighter colorful jackets, I have.

Teal is fabulous for your coloring Jess. And yes, I completely understand when you miss an item badly and how amazing it must be to find a replacement!
