With Christmas only two days away, yesterday should have been my last day of shopping, instead it was my first day. Judge all you want, I care's not! What I'm most looking forward to is the extra day off from work and scrolling through my shopping apps admiring all the after Christmas sales that I won't be taking advantage of (or at least that's the plan.)
Did you know that yesterday was the first day of winter? And while here in Atlanta we haven't really experienced the really really cold temps, I'm sure it's on the way. Which means I need to make sure my winter wardrobe is up to par. Starting with today's outfit. Most people naturally gravitate to dark wintery colors - greys, blacks, browns, navy, neutrals - boring (unless it's cute). Not me, this winter season I'm looking to add bright vibrant colors to my closet.
I mean, why should spring and summer have all the fun colors? They shouldn't! That's why I've decided that for winter this year I'm adding splashes of brightness to my winter looks. You should too, I promise it will definitely get noticed. Plus bright colors are an instant mood lifter and it will keep you from looking drab.
The color combo of today's look is just what the style doctor ordered, considering the week (at work) I've had. I picked up this sunny yellow sweater from Forever 21 a few weeks ago while on a shopping binge (hence the shopping fast) and immediately fell for it. I mean what's not to love about it? The one I'm wearing isn't available online, but this yellow sweater from Asos will do just fine.
I paired the sweater with this Zara silver metallic pleated skirt for a cute and casual holiday look and opted to complete the look with these black ShoeDazzle booties I found hiding in the back of my closet. Another bootie option, are these platform booties from H&M. If I said to you this skirt was not longer available, you might be disappointed. BUT, I was looking out for you, check out this dup silver pleated skirt from Asos. It's a game changer.
The best part about this post is that I've linked to a few really dope alternative options if you'd like to recreate my look. See below. Btw... Have you gotten your holiday outfits picked out yet? I would love to know what you plan to wear!! Talk to me in the comments below.
