Sequins and bright colors are exactly what's needed after a long week of semi hibernation. I am super happy with my recently found hot pink sweater. Sure I could have wore it with jeans but I thought it was the perfect day to match it with my vintage orange skirt that hardly ever comes out of the closet.
It's hard for me to throw on a skirt in winter because you have to find the right tights and boots that will go with it. As the weather warmed up quite a bit, I opted for pantyhose and pumps instead. Yes. I do still wear pantyhose. Not often but I do. I wanted a bare leg look without actually baring my legs. It warmed up but it's not warm.
This orange skirt is also hard to match with other colors. In such a situation, I normally go with black but I don't feel comfortable wearing black and orange together. It feels like I'm dressing for Halloween. Next best option? An equally bright color on top but guess what? My winter wardrobe is really toned down on color.
I think I subconsciously bought clothes that reflect my winter hating heart. There's a lot of black, brown, and dark color. I will absolutely have to change that. Hopefully, the thrift gods will bless me with more neon stunners.
I normally like to limit myself to one extreme pop but gold sequins just felt right.
Do you tone down the color in winter?
