This past month has NOT been my scene. I can do the cold. By cold I mean SoCal cold - low 70s. I absolutely do not like the rain. Don’t get me wrong, its beautiful when you're in doors and laying in bed. But, if you have shit to do, it's a pain in the ass to drive and I’m always struggling to dress appropriately. Under no circumstance is this an excuse to wearing leggings outside of my home or the gym.
I used my coat as a mainstay in my next few outfits. The goal was to embrace a common spring and summer color in to a more winteresque feel. This came natural and I started out with basics like white tees and denim and gradually got into printed pants and ruffled tops. The key is to never try to match the whites. I like to go for more of a spectrum, that way it doesn’t look like I've mismatched. My coat is more of a cool-toned off-white so I paired it with a super bright white top and then a printed pant with some western inspired booties. The second look was a little reversed - bright, white denim and a cream-colored tee with black booties. I love wearing white all year round and buying white coats and sweaters is a perfect way to incorporate this into winter and fall looks.
