Stripes For Winter

Outfit Details: Zara Turtle Neck (similar here, here, and here), Express Skirt (available in a ton of colors), Jeffrey Campbell Heels (similar), Miss Selfridge Clutch (also love this one), RocksBox Necklace & Ring

I think it's safe to say everyone here on the east coast is completely sick of winter. We are not-so-patiently counting down the days until spring. The temps have been below zero for the past few days. Can you blame us? Side note, I took these photos before a snowstorm on Saturday. It was actually above 30 degrees and I was feeling daring (mostly because I didn't wear any stockings. I am so tired of tights)! When the weather is blah, our outfits have a tendency to feel the same way. To give you some wardrobe inspiration, I put together one of my favorite winter looks...stripes and a full skirt! I love this combo for many reasons in the winter, but mostly because it's attention-grabbing and brazen. You can wear stripes in the form of sweaters, skirts, dresses, or even an infinity scarf. It's a great way to inject a little excitement into an everyday outfit.

Another great way to add personality to your wardrobe is by mixing in unique jewelry pieces. The statement necklace and midi ring that I am wearing above is actually from RocksBox, a subscription-based jewelry rental service. At $19 per month, you can receive 3 pieces of modern jewelry that is trendy and straight from the designers. You can wear the pieces wherever you like, to the office, on a date, or even to special events. The best part? When you are ready to try a new look you simply send back the 3 items and the RocksBox stylists will select a whole new set of pieces for you! If you fall in love with a piece, you have the option of buying it at an exclusive member price. Talk about a great way to add some variety to your wardrobe!
