a ladylike winter

if you don’t already know, this isn’t my favorite season. my attempts to bundle up usually consists of lots of layers and a pouty face. apart from christmas, i haven’t had the opportunity to play dress-up this winter. i keep on saying i’m going to have a date night with the hubs, but we usually just end up staying in. which i’m totally okay with most of the time, but my dresses might have cobwebs by now. if you’re a girly-girl like me, then you’d understand too. heck, if you’re a mom then i’m just preaching to the choir right about now.

the whole dressing up/date night situation is one of my new years resolutions. i’ll quote #8 down the list of things i wish to accomplish in 2013: “go out on hot dates night with my mani haven’t used my heels in…umm, yeah i can’t even remember the last time.” <— gosh, that’s sad!

i toke the woolite dream winter outfit challenge, ’cause i’m getting psyched for going out on the town. hopefully, sooner than later. i could use some practice and a little inspiration. people who know about fashion, know that woolite is a trusted detergent. it promises to take care of your favorite clothes so you can continue making great memories and great fashion statements. with that in mind, i put together this outfit that i would want to keep looking its best.

this pretty combination is a  little bit classy and a little bit fun too. there’s no need for a necklace with this moschino wool shirt.  it’s the epitome of femininity, which features an elegant bow. the a-line floral skirt gives the assemble a retro 50’s look, which i love. in order to avoid it being too matchy-matchy, i added a second pattern with the use of cardigan. delicate birds add that perfect touch of whimsy, which also gives this outfit an avant-garde edge. the mustard yellow military coat balances the girly elements with a touch of masculine detailing in the buttons. each of the accessories picks up a rich color and completes this very ladylike attire. it’s a perfect for dressing up while still keeping warm during this cold weather.

what are your thoughts?

    Ready? You really want to know what my first thought was (keeping in mind that we ARE becoming friends!!)… I really-really want to take you on a horseback adventure! The giggles erupting from me as I read and burst forth as I got to the end, and you just had to ask, My thoughts? (giggles)

    Trust me, I totally understand! Ha! Cobwebs? Sheesh, some of my leather (oh, ok, and dresses) will never be the same! But… You girl!

    It is a totally cool outfit and I can see you in it, easily. You’ll be as beautiful as ever

      you know what?….i’d love to go horseback riding! the closest i’ve come is riding a pony as a child. that would be so much fun! i need a little adventure in my life, as you’d understand (with the absence of heels and such). if you weren’t so far away, i’d be talking over some coffee to discuss all the fun outings you have up your sleeve.
