Ochre Silk & Celine Belt Bag

Color at last!
After a long stretch of monochromatic looks, I thought it might be high time to incorporate some color. It's been pretty cold and grey around here lately, so yellow made for the perfect cheer-me-up color choice.
If you're at a loss about how to style a bright color, just keep the rest neutral, that way you can never go wrong. I paired the flowy silk blouse with a structured dark grey coat and simple black trousers, while a minimalist watch and some dainty rings finish off the look!

Winter Layers & Peekaboo Lace

It's only the beginning of January and I'm already dying for warmer weather. Don't get me wrong, I love snow, the crisp cold air and those sunny winter days, but styling coats day in and day out is getting tiresome. So, I've been trying to change it up by playing with contrasting textures and complementary colors. Here I combined three textures to create a layered look: black lace, white jacquard and grey wool. The delicate lace balances out the heaviness of the wool coat, while the muted color palette keeps the outfit from looking to eclectic.

Military Silhouette & Roman Streets

There's no better way to celebrate the beginning of a new year than in a city that has seen so many of them! Traveling south for Christmas meant I could (for once) leave my heavy winter coats at home and could make use of my favorite wardrobe staple: jackets. The peplum silhouette and collar-less detail make this particular jacket a playfully feminine interpretation of a classically masculine silhouette. Skinny jeans and ankle boots complete the ensemble, making this the perfect outfit to explore a great city!
