Luxe Neutrals

After the craziness of last week's schedule, it felt so good to take some time to rest & recharge over the last few days. My husband is finally home after nearly non-stop travel for a month & I got the chance to see La La Land, which was the best movie I've gone to in years.  Unbelievably, we had balmy weather again on Saturday & Sunday, so I could get away without having to wear tights (yay!).  

Since I was living in my "mom clothes" and workout gear for several days in a row, I was anxious to dress up a bit for an outing with my husband.  This rich toffee wrap coat is so warm & soft - I actually double checked the label when it arrived because it felt like cashmere!  It adds a sophisticated touch to modern pieces like a speckled sweater & military-inspired booties.  Here are a few ways I'd rework these items into different looks:

* Wear the turtleneck & boots with skinny jeans & a faux fur vest (add a red lip for a pop of color)
* Swap out the skirt for white denim, slip on flat loafers or comfy sneakers and layer the turtleneck under a tan moto jacket (I'm still crushing on this one)
* Wear the white skirt with a tucked-in bow blouse, paired with pointed pumps & a ladylike satchel
* Layer an ivory cable-knit sweater under the wrap coat, add a plaid scarf & pair with burgundy trousers & strappy pumps

What I'm wearing:
c/o River Island Skirt (similar here or here), c/o Dorothy Perkins Boots
