We are actually experiencing cold weather this year in South Texas, and please don’t get frustrated with me when I say this…I LOVE IT! I know it is a hardship for many of you. But, fall and winter fashions have always been my favorites and I love seasonal weather just to mix things up a bit. Because I am a professional in a creative industry, I sometimes dress very classic and sometimes a more creative rock ‘n’ roll approach.
For cold weather, I just love a camel coat as part of my professional wardrobe. I also love neutrals and I love to mix them up…they all look beautiful together. This cashmere scarf was a recent purchase on Nordstrom Rack and it is so soft and pretty. I have one grey pants, a black turtleneck and brown boots but with the addition of this multi-neutral scarf, it all works so well. My black leather James Avery bag was given to me last Christmas from my husband and is my perfect work bag. But, on other days, I like to have a bit more fun and add some rock n roll…..
This outfit is fun and it is faux…faux fur and leather in the leather pants from Soft Surroundings. This is what I call a statement piece. I like to have them in my wardrobe, but because they are memorable, I do not wear them often…but just for a little fun when going out, like to the San Antonio Riverwalk at Christmas.
I live in a space where I can store a box with my statement pieces inside and not feel like, right now, I have to move them along. I do not own that many but what I have, I really love. Standing out and owning a room is no problem for me…I do not mind the attention as long as it is for my confidence and joy. I just discovered this new, ecological Earth Kind moth treatment and will be using it when I re-organize my closet after Christmas. One of the boxes on statement pieces will have a pouch with them.
So how are these looks the same woman? Well, I will explain that further next week when I discuss some Style Goals for You for 2020. Both have been me since I turned 50, and I share this plan of mine often. Tomorrow, I will be here with Jennifer for Would You Wear It? and there are similar pieces to these in the slideshow below! Thank you for a great week, ladies…I loved hearing from so many of you!
