How To Brighten Up Your Winter Wardrobe

How To Brighten Up Your Winter Wardrobe

This winter I decided to live up my winter wardrobe by adding fun pops of color! I’m all about experimenting with bold and bright outerwear, embellished accessories and patterns that make a statement this season!



And what’s a better way to add a fun and bright color by adding a baby blue vest to your otherwise monochromatic look? My blue wool vest couldn’t be any more perfect for this occasion. I wore this outfit to an early Thanksgiving dinner with my husband’s family. My husband comes from a very big family, part of them lives here in Illinois while the rest lives in California. We celebrated with his cousins this past weekend which was really nice. All of them have kids too which means: Major kiddie fest! My son had a ball—let’s leave it at that. ๐Ÿ™‚



Speaking of Thanksgiving…Can you believe it’s this Thursday? My husband and I will host Thanksgiving at our house and as always, I’d  like to reflect on life, and what I’m grateful for, like my family. I know this sounds very cliché—but my family is my world. They are the ones that really matter in life. Adding another baby boy to our family next Spring is another huge blessing as well. Words cannot describe how grateful we are…What about you? What are you thankful for this season?!

As always, thanks so much for reading and have a wonderful day!

I Love You all.

    I love wearing pops of color in the winter, it helps to liven up the mood and atmosphere and you, my friend, look so beautiful in this blue vest and I adore the velvet ankle boots! It sounds like you had such a fun time spent with your family this weekend! I agree, family is all that matters at the end of the day. They are the ones who will love you unconditionally and be there to support. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have the best start to your week!

    Yes to this post! I’ve been wearing so many dark fall colors lately that I definitely needed the reminder of beginning to wear brighter clothes again. Love how you paired white with the blue, so so good and definitely perfect for winter! Xx

    Lovely and beautiful as usual, dear V.! I loved the long vest, the color is so sweet and the boots too! You look fabulous with this lovely hairstyle and it is nice that you had an early Thanksgiving dinner! And that Kingston could play a lot! Also, good wishes for hosting the Thanksgiving night this week! I am grateful for many things and I say that, no empty words, one was our connection; even though we don’t know each other in person, I feel like we do and I am so glad that you are a sweet and supportive girl – we can all be, but it’s rare to find supportive girls like you! Hugs and kisses, dear V.!
