The seasons have changed quickly here in Ohio and it is already chilly. It’s not feeling (or looking much like fall) – it has gone straight to early winter! With the quick change in seasons, I have had to put away a lot of my summer dresses and start looking for options that will keep me warmer.
I’m not a big fan of winter weather, so I don’t have a lot of winter clothing. I’m more drawn to cute summer dresses and bright colors. If it were up to me, I’d wear my big, cozy chenille sweater, leggings, and warm socks all winter. However, with my job, that’s not an option. I have to have some professional pieces.
I’m excited to share today’s look with you because I was able to incorporate some of the summer color into a professional piece of clothing that will work well for fall and into winter. As it gets cooler, I would add tights and maybe wear some knee-high boots.
For the first look, I chose the Herringbone A-Line skirt and wore it with some items already in my closet. You may remember the navy shirt from this post, the trench coat from this post, and the shoes from this post. The simple pattern with navy and small pops of color make it easy to wear with something you probably already have – like a white button-down shirt or a light pink shirt. It hits just about the knee, so it’s nice for cooler weather and also for a professional setting.
For the second look with Talbots, I opted for even more color. I started with this Bi-Stretch Wool Blazer in Hawthorn Rose. It’s the perfect way to add some color to an all-black outfit. You can pull out some basic black pants and a simple button-down, which is pretty plan on it’s own, but once you add this blazer, your whole look pops.
In addition to the blazer, I added these Edison Flats from Talbots. I like them because they have small heel, which keeps the shoe more structured. They also have a cute cut-out in the heel area. If you’re not sure about the blue, they also come in the same color as the blazer and in navy and black. I love the pop of blue, but also think that the black could look very chic this winter.
