Shift Into Neutrals

by - Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Today's outfit features the same neutral color scheme using some of the same items as another outfit from warmer days. I wish I could say that I simply added some layers to transition the outfit from fall to winter, but nope, the outfit only came together after I stumbled across a J.Crew collage (bottom left outfit).

camel peacoat, white jeans, leopard pumps
camel peacoat, sweater, cardigan, turtleneck, white jeans
sunglasses: Walmart aviator (similar)
lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in blushing mauve (sold here)
coat: American Eagle peacoat (similar)
sweater: Banana Republic piped open cardigan (similar - extra 50% off)
turtleneck: H&M (similar - $12.99)
jeans: Blank NYC spray-on (sold at Shopbop / NM / Cusp)
bag: Longchamp large Le Pliage (sold at Nordstrom / Bloomingdale's / NM)
shoes: Jones New York Harlem (similar; similar)

  1. Hi Cee,
    I love this outfit, but how do you wear these shoes in this frigid DC weather?

    1. Hey! I wore this this outfit on Monday when the weather was actually mild, so baring ankles wasn't a problem. If I had worn this outfit today or yesterday... yikes, I would've probably just sucked it up for outfit photos. Or, worn commuting shoes and changed to heels in the office. In reality, for the past two days, I went super casual and wore a fleece jacket, jeans, and Uggs, haha. Not blog worthy, so those outfits won't be making an appearance on the blog :)

  2. You make white jeans in winter look good! Almost makes me want to try it myself (but I can't - I am a random ketchup stain magnet).

    1. Haha, I try not to think about my klutzy tendencies when wearing white jeans. So far, so good! *knock on wood*

  3. Cee, I never cease to be amazed by your layering skills :) When I try layering, I just look puffy and have too many clothes on, haha. anyway, love everything about this outfit of yours!

    1. I don't know if there's a general rule that I follow... keep on layering until it feels too bulky? haha. I tend to stick with thinner layers and work from the base layer outwards. I'd pick a few colors (or ones in the same family) to work with and just mix and match.


I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
