Everyday Style ~ Winter Wonderland

Girls, it's cold outside. (Well, maybe it's not below zero in Alabama but for us it's cold, right?!?!) It's that time of year when we pull out our tights, sweaters, boots, scarves, coats, hats, and gloves. Winter is upon us and with it the new exciting challenge of incorporating modesty, femininity, style, beauty, and warmth -- all in one outfit. WHEW! That sounds like a lot of work, but it's not as bad as it sounds. You're fully capable of pulling it off. I know it!!!

While in Colorado we snapped several pictures of my sister and me in the snow. Both of our outfits include items that could be worn every day, but I hope you find them inspirational and encouraging, knowing that it's still possible to dress feminine and stylish, and stay warm!

My sister's outfit is simple, yet paired with colored tights gives it a "pop of color." Colored tights are a big thing this winter and add a fantastic flair to a plain outfit. Her hair was curled with a wider wand to give her some boost and volume. The cowl neck sweater, paired with sparkly earrings, an a-line skirt, purple tights and brown boots, is perfect for an everyday outing.

My outfit is a little bit "boho." I placed a black drapey waterfall cardigan over my "little black dress." Without accessories, this outfit would be just plain boring, but accessories do EVERYTHING for this one. Textured black tights, a wrap bracelet, gold leaf earrings, brown boots, and a crossover brown leather bag pulls it all together. My hair is done into an upside down french braid pulled into a high ponytail and made into a sock bun. 

So remember, just because you're bundling up does NOT mean you should be looking sloppy. Order and beauty brings honor to your Maker. Don't be afraid to mix and match your clothes. Play around with what you have! Come on Southern Belles, let's make a statement by pulling together our winter wardrobes!!!
