What's In My Closet: Winter Fashion

Hi, friends!
Well, it's the first day of December and even though we don't have snow here in Indiana, it does feel like winter has arrived.
We did get a little bit of sunshine on and off today, as seen in some pics of the lake...

I decided to take advantage as much as possible, as you never know what tomorrow's weather will be here in Indiana...
So, I am sharing a few new and some older outfits that I am wearing in the cooler weather.(A few of my pics were out of focus, for some reason. But you get the gist of what I wore.)

Outfit #1
I love red and gray together. This outfit is awesome for the upcoming Christmas season.
The plaid tartan scarf was originally a throw, which keeps me toasty warm when a chill is in the air.
Also, loving my snowflake sweater. It goes well with the flowering Hibiscus growing on my sun porch!!
A little fur on the hood adds to the fun!

Outfit #2
More gray (with black and white) adds a twist of monochrome to this outfit. I can wear my over-the-knee boots turned down, as pictured above, or all the way up, as shown below...
A large statement necklace brings more depth to the outfit...

Outfit #3
Burgundy is another favorite color this year for me.
Along with leggings, this mini dress is perfect for a lunch with a friend or dinner with the hubby.
I love the two tone floral and leaf design!
A pair of warm fuzzy socks and black slip-ons completes the ensemble.

Outfit #4
I am finding that leggings(especially ones with patterns) are drawing me in this year...the southwest pattern above adds lots of color, when coordinated with my off-white cable knit oversized sweater.
To match the color coordination, I wore multi-colored dangle of a few new earrings recently purchased(Oh, by the way. I recently had my ears pierced, something I've been wanting to do. I had pierced ears back in high school, but let them grow shut in my 30's.)
Colorful rings are another new fun accessory I've been loving lately!!
Finally, I have had these tan ankle boots for years, but wanted to turn them into a "Boho" style. Here, I've added burlap, lace, and bangles to my boots and I absolutely love them!!!

Well, I hope you all are enjoying the cooler seasons!! I have a feeling we won't be having many more sunny days like this in the winter!!

  1. Hi Ann!

    You certainly do have a fun style! I love plaid, too, but can't wear true red...(it clashes with my skin tone). However, in the winter I love to wear read with blue undertones...sort of burgundy/red! I'll need to find a scarf like yours! The sweater and dress look like me... and I love your earrings, too! Today I'm wearing a grey shirt which, after seeing this blog, I should have paired with something "Joan's red burgundy"! Maybe I'll go search my closet and add it now!

    I've been following you on Pinterest, too!

    Have a wonderful December and Christmas!!

    Love, Joan
