I just love winter in California. Winter usually starts closer to the end of January. So I know the idea of a peep toe show might be unfathomable for most of the country. Here, it works. I go through phases where I get really interested in fashion and continue on my quest to find my personal style. And like I mentioned in my goals post, I’ve sort of let myself go. While I never leave the house in sweatpants or workout clothes (unless I’m hiking. Which I totally do now. What?!) I can certainly be very sloppy. Here is some winter fashion inspiration for you.
Plaid pants: Plaid can be done in a number of ways like slouchy and cozy, a little punk rock, a little preppy, etc. But I love how chic it looks when styled with a crisp white shirt, heels and fold over clutch. I’m totally on the look out for these pants. (image via BethAnimalPrint)
Textured coats: I’m dying over all the textured coats that are out there right now. I have my eye on this dip dyed version but my heart really wants this multi colored amazingness from Wunderkind. This one is not faux and is like a bajillion dollars so it’s totally out. I’m also in love with the monster coats from Meadham Kirchhoff. (image via Lyst)
Layered necklaces: I’m not a big jewelry wearer. But I know they can really finish off an outfit. I really need to practice my layering. It looks a little bohemian and classy at the same time which I love. (image via Oh Mai Darling)
Well dressed nails: I’m a mom to two boys who is constantly moving. I have yet to find the right time to paint my nails. With the dish washing, or hair combing, there never seems to be the perfect time. But I want to set out and find it. My nails could use a little color and adorning. I’m in love with these from Hex Nail Jewelry. I bought some for my niece and they are so fun! I will be ordering again for sure! (image via Hex Nail Jewelry)
Interesting shoes: I don’t wear heels often (I would like to say I will try to wear them more but I just don’t think I can commit to it regularly. When my feet hurt from shoes, I literally get punchy. Like, angry and will punch you if you make me move from my chair. It is NOT good) but when I do, I like for the shoes to be interesting. If I’m going to hurt, they have to be show stoppers. I love how these pumps are detailed in a subtle way. The little gold spikes are not as tough as most spiked stuff comes off but adds so much interest. (image via Eugene Riconneaus)
