A Dose of Color for the Dark Days of Winter

With the hustle and bustle of holiday celebrations behind me, it’s all too easy to look at the months ahead as a dark and dreary passageway to spring. But why should I settle for neutral shades and let spring and summer have all the fun? This year, I’ve resolved to give my January and February wardrobe a much needed dose of color!

Transforming a summery dress for winter is surprisingly simple, and adding color to an outfit is just as easy. Inspired by the pops of tangerine and blush tones seen on the Spring 2012 runways, I picked the Down by the Sorbet Dress and used navy blue as a base color. Top it all off with a cozy scarf, and you have a look that will be sure to brighten up the cold days ahead.

DRESS – Down by the Sorbet Dress
NECKLACE – Double Time Necklace
BELT- Here I Bow Again Belt
SCARF – Crinkle in Time Scarf
EARRINGS – Oval and Oval Again Earrings
SHOES- Always in the Front Flat
COAT – Minneapolis Marvel Coat
TIGHTS – Tights for Every Occasion in Navy

    So cheerful, and it would stand out so well against some snowy scenery!

    I love this ensemble! The orangey red and navy are a wonderful combination, especially when life ’round here still runs to yellow and black.
