Life has been moving so quickly lately. I can’t believe we are in the third week of January already, now is that time of year when the cold settles in, and we tend to fall into style ruts based around staying covered up as much as possible. The question always seems to be “How many layers is too many layers?” during this time of the year. I am guilty of this, my work week wardrobe consists of leggings and sweaters and boots. I mix in scarves and different jackets, but its pretty much the same uniform look. So on the weekends I am always trying to mix it up, date night out? I am pushing myself to get out of my Winter uniform. I want to be warm, and covered but I don’t want to be dressed in the same ole same ole.
Last week I shared the many positive attributes of a midi length dress, and this week I am staying with that trend. I paired this gorgeous blue waterfall coat with a fitted black midi dress(that can be pulled above the knee if you want) and over the knee boots. The dress is TIGHT, much more fitted than I usually wear, so to balance out the look I grabbed this Midnight blue draped parka from Yours Clothing. This look is soooooooooooo fabulous. As a blogger, I love all my clothes equally but this particular outfit combo stands out amongst the crowd.
What especially catches my eye with this look? The way the blue coat pops off the all black dress and boots. This color combo is right on trend for Winter, and can easily transition into Spring with some updated accessories. This coat was perfect from a 40+ degree day, and is so soft and fluid.
Not into the OTK look? There are lots of different ways to pair this color combo together. For a “Safer” version of this outfit pair this coat with a pair of black skinnies and a comfy black tee. I would even add some great sneakers, and maybe a beanie.
