Winter White Inspiration+My Refined Style Linkup #1








Hello Ladies! What day is today?

I feel like singing The Answer my Friend, is Blowin in the Wind, The Answer is Blowin in the Wind.. as you can see it was pretty darn windy out today, but we made do.


It is still pretty warm in Charlotte, as the temps don’t really get a bit chillier here end of Oct beginning of November, but that isn’t going to stop me from wearing fall or fall like clothes! Transitional. I was inspired by Mary Murnane’s winter white look HERE and thought, yes! I could do this now, as I am not wearing a heavy sweater and I love a winter white look. I think the key can be in the details or adding fall textures to the color. I have added my Enzo Angiolini tweed pointed brown flats here that were a great Ebay find, my Louis Vuitton bag, and  a pair of vintage brown earrings I found on Etsy last year. I try to buy vintage or unique jewelry as I love a more one of a kind look and also love the history of a vintage find.

Please take the time as well to view all of the lovely ladies on this Tuesdays Turning heads linkup as well! So much fashion to inspire!

Welcome to this monthly linkup with all of these lovely fashionistas! Hope you join in and share your looks!

The sweater with that beautiful detailing is really lovely! (I know you won’t be surprised if I tell you I have a similar J.Crew sweater in a couple of different neutral colors 🙂 ) Thank you again! xox-M
