I think January is officially the longest month of the year. The last few months have been a quick blur with all the activities and holidays and now, well now it’s just winter. And while some retailers are already steamrolling into spring, others are releasing their second wave of winter attire. With this, I’m seeing lots of winter pastels in everything from wool jackets to cozy sweaters and stylish handbags. Maybe this is their way of already easing us into spring but the warm colors are a nice welcome in the winter months.
A new year means a fresh start which is why for this month’s Style Your Budget I decided on the soft, clean, fresh look of a winter white top and paired it with a few closet staples such as gray jeans and black ankle boots. Then I couldn’t resist mixing in a beautiful winter pastel handbag to finish off the look. And in case you’re wondering what Style Your Budget is all about, it’s where I showcase an outfit formula and provide some shopping options at all different price ranges. Whether your shopping your closet or filling in the gaps, looking great doesn’t have to break the bank. By providing the formula instead of being item specific, you’re then able to shop where you like, buy the styles you love and tailor each outfit to your lifestyle instead of the other way around!
