Dressed for: The Last of Snow

Or so I hope. It feels like spring is truly here, so today’s post is a multi-outfit smorgasbord meant to get any remaining snowy-weather ensembles out of the queue!

P.S. If it snows again before November, I will probably cry bitter, bitter tears. And I know I won’t be the only Minnesotan to do so.

This outfit was meant to include my red boots, which haven’t been worn in ages but have survived many a merciless closet purge because RED BOOTS. They looked utterly weird with these pieces because they’re very tall and loose-fitting at the top, and just didn’t gel with the other decidedly fitted elements. It was like they became strangely disproportionate, heeled red galoshes. So I kept the scarf with its pop of red, swapped in some red tights with my black Coclicos, and a considerably less weird outfit was born. read more

I know I’ve said it before, but I guess I’m just a broken record: Scarves are SUCH great bridging pieces. I wouldn’t have put black and purple together on my own, since I tend to do black with other neutrals and purple with other jewel tones. But I loved this dark mix with a pop of brightness from the red and white and pink swirls in the scarf. read more
