Royal blue

I dare say my favorite shade of blue, ever! So good that I let it take the center stage and arranged everything around it. The color alone made up for lack of fancy pieces in this outfit.

Braving the tundra

Why are supermarkets so cold? It's worse than a trip to Alaska! ....and if you dress for it, people would look at you like you are crazy. No matter!

BB cushion

My already favorite new discovery: LNEIGE BB Cushion
It's light on skin, has medium/full coverage, doesn't cake on face and interestingly Fair matches my skin tone perfectly.
I just had to tell you about it!

Tan and army green

Alright! It's all camouflage colors. Does it mean I want to hide somewhere? Is there an attack planed?

Saphire dreams

This sweater with its ingenious pattern opens so many color combination possibilities. Here I took the easy way out and went matchy matchy with navy (sapphire, indigo, ... the choice is yours).
Oh, and now it's time to stock up on flared jeans or in my case take my flares out of the storage. The many perks of being a pack rat!

Winter black and white

A black and white look for a mild midday weather. Layers layers, soon it's time for goodbye!

Up in arms

Army colors or another mix of desert colors, your choice of title! All necessitated by cold weather. Can I repeat how wonderfully warm and cozy that turtleneck is?

Positive thinking

Yes, we had a cold front, a snowstorm in the mountains and two days of windy weather and rain storm in the city with a 25 degree temperature drop. On the positive side, it was the last chance for me to wear this shearling coat this year. I'm glad I had this chance!

Desert colors

It's an apt description of my go to colors at the moment, all tan and khakis and orange and reds. The outfit was more a play on texture than color but I guess it worked both ways. Huh, lucky!

To match...

...or not to match? For me, there is no question! Extreme matchiness...

Camel and cream

I am taking advantage of these last few cool nights to wear my turtlenecks and heavier knits before our spring hits.

Winter whites

..well, mostly!
Getting into the spirit of winter wonderland (everywhere else in the world) despite our 70 degree weather, I went with mostly white pieces. It is fun to play at winter dressing without the frozen tundra of an actual winter!

Greens and golds

I wanted to visit Butterfly Wonderland as soon as I moved to Phoenix...and finally I did! Such a magical place, so many colors... I am in awe!
My mix of greens and beiges was pretty subdued compare to all the amazing colors on  those butterflies.
Check my Instagram for some beautiful butterflies' photos in the coming days!

Burgundy and gray

Taking advantage of these last days of winter in AZ to wear my heavier coats. Let's put the focus on the burgundy for a change, no?

Toffee, chocolate and mocha

I normally don't do "Fifty shades of brown" but had to wear this turtleneck before the weather heats up and the turtleneck season passes. Yes, need must and all that!

Desperatly seeking color!

Has winter humdrums hit you too? are you also tired of the same old neutrals, black and gray? I have to add dusty green and blue to that list too. I need some color excitement.
And in case you were wondering... no, plum didn't help! Maybe if I wear head to toe plum?!! Hmmm...

Chambray tunic

Adding a pair of legging to a chambray minidress makes it winter-appropriate. Boots and coats complete the picture.

Purples and pinks

Should I say how perfectly everything matched? This one was one of those outfits that took a lot of digging into my closet and boxes at the last minute (30 minutes before leaving the house) to assemble. Initially I had planed to wear the sweater with black pants but that didn't work out.
Now, this? This is a beauty!

Classic combo

Camel coats and blue jeans are American classics, no doubt! Also I like to put my own spin on everything, no doubts again! So for this outfit I chose a pair of faded blue jeggings (which fit perfectly in my booties) and matched them with a long suede buttondown and a wrap camel coat. I like my camels set on the lighter milkier side of spectrum. What about you?

Plaid coat

I took stack of my coat closet and found out I hadn't bought any new coats last year which I took as permission to go coat shopping. So glad it's Sale season!
Anyhow, the possibilities with a plaid seem endless, don't they? For now, a monochromatic look allowed the coat to shine.

Leafy greens

Same color two days in a row? Truth is I couldn't stop myself after finding out the top is matching the background color of the pants' print exactly. Yes, I am that matchy matchy... it's a form of OCD!

For the love of Army (green)

I have come a long way in liking army/olive/moss green, from none to actually embracing this color family head to toe! Still I am very peaky about which shades I choose. Some shades don't like me, no matter how much I started to like them!
Mixing suede and leather and chenille and wool.... so perfectly tactile!

Jeans for Spring 2016

My extensive research into the subject has shown that jeans for the coming Spring season will fit (haha!) into three categories:

1- High waisted, flared, and shrunken enough for ankles showing
2- High waisted, flared, and long sometimes floor sweeping
3- High waisted, skinny, and shrunken enough for ankles showing.

Noticed the key words there? Easy!

Collutes for winter

I mentioned winterizing these collutes before. Here is an outfit for a night around 46 degree chill. BTW, that beanie has more of a poppy orange tint than red. Don't doubt my powers of color matching!
Are you seeing too much of my cozy turtlenecks? These days all I want to do is hiding under blankets, these big collar turtlenecks are pretty close substitute!

Navy..... Blue?

I was thinking about layering a navy turtleneck under a navy striped jersey dress when I remembered luckily I have a similar combination which is far more weather appropriate....and what you get when mixing white and navy? Light blue hopefully!
