Many people do not embrace wearing bright colors or print clothing. That doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy a splash of color or pattern to bring variety to our comforting neutrals. This week, I am sharing some of the ways I introduce more color variety to winter neutrals.
The V-neck gray cashmere sweater is here. (Wearing size medium.) The straight leg high waist black jeans are here. (Wearing size 6.) I folded a fifty-one-inch silk twill scarf in a triangle, then placed it on one shoulder — drape one end over the front and one end over the back.
Scarves with bold, saturated blocks of color are the ones I wear most often. Small patterns and soft tones are too muted for my winter coloring.
My award-winning lip color is Poppy by Beautycounter here. The color is a little red, a little pink, with a tiny amount of shimmer. I’m not wearing any foundation, but my skincare routine is here. Less is more for me now.
The tan Dooney & Bourke bag is here. The Cole Haan flats are here.
We enjoyed a beautiful day with temperatures in the seventies on Saturday. Any time we have a day like that in January, Mr. Mickey and I go for a long drive in the country. We headed to Virginia, and after a couple of hours of enjoying the serene vistas, we had a delightful meal at Pecan 128 in Abingdon.
My adventure partner ordered the grilled turkey Reuben sandwich, and I had the Caribbean Jerk chicken salad.
