Cobalt & Mustard…

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I had a very relaxing holiday in the mountains of Tahoe with friends and family. It was perfect and one of the best Turkey Days I’ve had yet!

Now that I’m home though, it’s back to business as usual…and I have a fun outfit post for you all.

I’ve been mixing colors like a maniac lately, and I’m especially loving jewel tones. Aren’t they just gorgeous!?!

My favorites have been emerald, oxblood, cobalt, and mustard. Try as I might I can’t ever seem to wear just one color.  I’m one of those people who likes to mix my outfits with as many different colors as possible. I know…One of those weirdos. Oh well!

Take a look below, to see how I styled a gorgeous cobalt blue dress…

(Fitted: Brixton hat from Goodstock, mustard scarf from Heart, cobalt dress from Tela, tights and blazer from Target, booties from Amazon, and bracelets from Gigglosophy)

I’m kinda crazy about this cobalt dress from Tela. It’s one of those dresses that can be dressed up with tights, a statement necklace and some fabulous heels…Or dressed down with boots, a scarf and a cardigan for a weekend adventure. Whenever I buy something new, I always make sure it can be worn multiple ways, so that it doesn’t just sit in my closet collecting dust.

Some of the best advice I can give you about buying clothing, is to think about how versatile the item is. Can it be casually worn? Can it be dressed up? Can you mix and match it with other items in your closet? My rule of thumb is this: If you can’t wear it multiple times, then just say no. Spend your money on something that will get more wear.

That’s all for now…Cheers to the holidays!

xoxo,

    I agree. I’ve been cleaning out my closet and it’s the less versatile pieces that aren’t making the cut. I’m also taking a closer look at my dress collection. I’m not really that into dresses, but I’m starting to come around lately. I find that they’re like getting a dress, top and skirt for one amazing price. :P Also, depending on how you style the dress, it can be worn all year ’round!

    I love the cobalt and mustard combo, by the way. You really can’t go wrong with those two!

    Cheers!

    Good shopping advice! I try to imagine my wardrobe when I got shopping to make sure I can wear it with things I have but sometimes it’s hard to picture what you have at home. Ah, shopping. It’s a life-long learning experience. Haha.
