Happy Monday, everyone! Today I am discussing my go-to neutral for winter outfits.
Since, I am a warm autumn palette lady, my go-to neutral for winter outfits is navy…and I have been wearing the color often.
I always loved black, until I realized it was not my best friend for my complexion…simply because it is not my best color.
But, wearing navy allows me the dark columns of color I love and find to be slimming, yet it is In a flattering color that does not age me more than my young seventy years.
Today, I want to show you a couple of ways I have worn navy outfits recently, just to go out and about.
MY GO-TO NEUTRAL FOR WINTER OUTFITS: OUTFIT #1
The day after my recovery boot was sent on it’s merry way, Leigh Ann & I decided to go out and about…including brunch to celebrate.
This meant a winter outfit and with athletic shoes in mind, I styled more of a navy athletic-wear-vibe-winter-outfit.
I believe this pant elevates athleisure pants…comfortable and fashionable.
I am also wearing a CHICO’S MICROFIBER TANK in classic navy.
Everything else has been with me for awhile….the jewelry and the older JJill jacket.
I remembered my old jacket when I tried on the Talbot’s PONTE PLEATED BACK JACKET because the designs are very similar.
I wish I had one in the excellent Talbot’s ponte knit, but this one is so similar I cannot justify getting the newer one…though I highly recommend it.
The lighter weight one I own will serve me well past winter outfits.
Dressed spiffy in our winter outfits, we decided to try out a new brunch location called Mimosa Gossip, owned by two sisters.
It was delicious and fun…both of us had the spinach and mushroom omelet with the specialty potatoes (so good).
However, most people are taken with this new place because of the 37 varieties of mimosas…alcoholic and non-alcoholic.
It was such a difficult decision! But, the selection we made was amazing…I just did not like the name…The Evil Queen.
The Evil Queen includes apple cider, caramel, and non-alcoholic champagne. It was delicious!
People go for the mimosas and food…the location is not as funky or cute as many in San Antonio, but it is definitely worth the visit…and we will go back.
MY GO-TO NEUTRAL FOR WINTER OUTFITS: OUTFIT #2
The next selection of my winter outfits was worn before the doctor’s visit…so I still went out in a boot.
I like this navy monochromatic color.
My navyTalbot’s Cardigan is old and was originally purchased in a Red Door Sale. If I was buying a cardigan today, it would be this KATE CARDIGAN.
I love the gold buttons on that one.
My boot is EASY SPIRIT, and I think was the most comfortable shoe my one foot wore during this time!
The necklace is fun and I have owned it for several years.
At that time, I was just cutting through JCP at the mall, and my eye fell on a designer pop-up shop.
I do not remember the designer, but on that day this necklace was $13…I do remember that and I instantly loved it.
It has such an artistic, sparkly design to it…makes winter outfits more fun.
My go-to neutral of navy blue for winter outfits creates a blank slate that I can create anything upon. And I love doing that.
MY GO-TO NEUTRAL FOR WINTER OUTFITS: NEUTRAL UPDATES
I am excited about two new pants for my column of navy in winter outfits and other seasons as well.
JJILL has just introduced a new slim leg jean for us curvy ladies. I have ordered the CURVY FIT SLIM LEG JEAN so, I can check it out.
And, YES…they come in petite and tall.
I also just received the TALBOTS PONTE STRAIGHT LEG CUFF . I will style them for you soon…hopefully this week.
So, what neutral do you wear the most with your winter outfits? Please share ….we would love to know and tell us why it is your favorite.
Leigh Ann and I will be back tomorrow. Until then…make sure that you………………
STAY STRONG & KEEP SMILING!
