Winter Pastels

As some of you may already know, I love am obsessed with having a great winter coat. I have no problem admitting it, either. It’s actually become a family joke now. I love my coats so much so, that I literally plan my entire outfit around them some days. Yes. I really do. I used to buy nothing but camel or black coats because they’re classic, and go with everything. However, now more than ever, I’m loving the pretty pastel coats to really brighten up a cold, winter’s day.

If you’re in the market for a new winter coat, below are a few pretty pastel favorites.

Double-Cloth Lady Day Coat

This coat is simply gorgeous. I have this in a hot pink (from a few years back) and still LOVE it. In my opinion, the name says it all. It comes in several bright colors, but my first choice would be this subtle pink.

Stadium-Cloth Cocoon Coat

So, Santa came a few months early this year! I have worn this coat once so far on our trip to the mountains, and I could not be happier with the soft mint color!

Wool Wrap Coat

I really like this coat for a more casual, every day look. I would pair this with jeans and skinny pants. It looks so cozy, doesn’t it?

Emilie Coat

This blue blush color is so, so pretty. The length looks great, too. Another classic coat to add to your collection.

Let’s Talk – Sweater Weather

There’s nothing I love more than sweater weather. I went to school in the mountains, so sweaters have been “my thing’ ever since. And, I don’t pair mine with a turtleneck or a basic tee, either. I love to layer a pretty blouse (short sleeve or long sleeve) underneath mine. Some of the tops I layer under sweaters are actually summer tops. In my opinion, it’s makes what could be a boring sweater more feminine and stylish. I love getting the most mileage out of my clothing, don’t you?

Below are a few sweaters I’ve got my eyes on right now.
Happy Shopping, Friends!

Boden – The June/July Edit

Can you believe it’s almost July? I can’t. Maybe that’s because I’m in denial that I’ll be a year older in just a few short days (Eek!). Either way, I have a lot to be grateful for, and that’s how I intend to look at this birthday!

Moving right along, I decided to do a “June/July Edit” for Boden, mainly because it’s Monday, and I thought I’d brighten the day up a bit for you. Their styles are always so colorful and fun. I have a few dresses from them, and still love them years later. Their stuff is so well made, too. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m tall, so a longer dress is necessary. The good news for all of you tall girls out there, the majority of their dresses are also available in long! You don’t have to order a size larger (like I do in most places that don’t offer tall/long styles) to get the right length. That to me is worth a few extra dollars for sure.

Here are my current favorites at Boden. Do you love Boden as much as I do?

Sarah Ponte Dress

This dress is gorgeous. It comes in several colors. I love this color and the navy.

 Sandra Sundress

What a great Summer frock, right? I could wear this on a date night, girls night out and church! It’s so pretty and screams “have fun!”

 Kiera Ottoman Dress

This stripe dress is just classic. I don’t need any convincing to add this to my shopping cart. Do you?

Pretty Embroidered Shorts

Pretty embroidered shorts. The name says it all. They would look great with a tee or dressed up with a pretty blouse! These are a Summer must.

Chic All in One

I am not a fan of the rompers (not yet anyway), but this jumpsuit looks chic. Even better, it comes in long. I would wear a blazer/cardigan for day with flats. And for night, I’d wear it with a pair of cute heels, and throw a pashmina in my handbag in case it gets cold.

Festival Scarf

This is a “wear with everything” kind of scarf. It would look great with a pretty much any outfit you own. Plus, how can you ignore these pom-poms?

Alice Flat

These flats are darling. I’d wear them year round…just one of the beautiful things about being Southern…we love color, and our weather allows us to wear them year round.

Happy Monday, Friends!
