Colorful Accents

  

Coat (Old Navy); Scarf (The Loft); Tights (Kohls); Boots (Nine West); Suede Gloves (Stolen from Mom)

The colder weather brings opportunities for fun accessories like scarves, boots, hats, and gloves.  Just because they have a job to do doesn't mean they can't be cute too :)  Since almost everyone has a gray or black coat - adding some color will take a boring outfit (otherwise known as my outfit less the scarf and gloves) and transform it into a fashionable and polished look.  And I have no empirical evidence to back this up - but I'm pretty sure wearing bold and fun colors in the drab of winter can actually keep you warm!

I love Old Navy coats! I have a white one that I bought five years ago, and I just got a purple one this year, which is now my favorite coat ever. Love the scarf with the gloves!

Hi dear, love how you've added bright pops of colour to this look. Grey is so well paired with pink & turquoise. Your gloves are lovely

You look fantastic! I agree, adding some colour is lots of fun and lifts the grey or black coats people wear at this time!! Love the combination!! Hope you have a great day!! XO

I LOVE those touches of color. The grey coat is fab, and maybe I never really noticed from your other posts, but you're so tall! Lucky. :)

I absolutely LOVE your scarf! And the pops of color! I don't know why, but I don't own a single black coat! Every coat is a bright color and I definitely think it helps make winter less dreary!

Heather!

You look so chic!!! And ultra sexy! (is that okay to say to someone to dont actually know?) Anyway, before I even started reading your text I kept thinking... I have a grey coat... I have boots, I have scarves! So needless to say, I cant wait to create this look! I just started getting into gloves. Whenever I first purchase an item I like to buy basic colors first, so I have one light pair and one dark pair of gloves. I was thinking red for a new fun color, what do you think?
