Around the new year I talked a lot about my one and only fashion New Years “resolution”! That was to wear more color this year, and if not more color, then just at least less black. So that’s where we are starting today; grey. Stepping into a more minimalism style is also something I’m working on this year. Though don’t forget I have my big closet organization post coming up at the beginning of next month where I will talk a lot more in detail about this process 🙂
An easy way to make a classic “masculine” piece like a trench coat look a little more girly, is to pair it with cutesy non-black items. My new designer bag has a very chic look with the shiny jewelry-like hardware and is in a very pretty grey color. This saddle bag is definitely a step outside my fashion comfort zone but I’m absolutely in love with it. The grey and gold combo is a bit more unusual too, and will I think encourage me to wear more colors in between. I had to pair the bag with these grey boots; however I should note they are not the exact same tone of grey. Though if you notice the colored perspex heel on the boots, it helps to match the two tone effect in both pieces. Other outfit details will be listed below along with direct links.
