How to keep your winter wardrobe bright

It is officially cold in Boston. I can no longer stand to walk around in cute, light outerwear but I’m huddled into a giant sleeping bag of a coat with giant boots covering my legs. The only pop of excitement in my outfit these days is a scarf.

When it gets cold, it’s hard for me to think about dressing in bold colors. I start to go for the black wool, cashmere or really anything soft with some sort of insulation!

While it’s always sophisticated to dress in all black, I try to keep these outfits fresh by adding different scarves and shoes to make a statement. I love a bright scarf or a bold pattern like the leopard above to make the outfit my own.

Dream Purses

Purses, similar to jewelry, shoes and just about every accessory, are items I believe you can never have too much of. They help to push an outfit in a more formal or casual direction. A good purse is one of the best investments you can make in your wardrobe. It will last you years and still look brand new.

The purses above all play off of a red, white and black color scheme. It is one of my favorite color combinations and all these purses would work well in my wardrobe!
