Shades of Winter

Friday, November 28, 2014

Dress: c/o Tobi
Coat: Forever 21
Heels: Call it Spring (similar here)
Clutch: ASOS
Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington

The new season seems to be quickly approaching with our first light snowfall of the season. Though the return of freezing weather usually leads me to a darker wardrobe, I've been trying to embrace color through winter shades. I have especially been loving pastel blues and greys because they add lightness to my monochrome looks. For today's post, I've dressed up for some formal inspiration with this little black dress from Tobi. This piece makes for seamless preparation because the shoulder cutouts and asymmetrical hem create eye-catching details on their own. Without the need for heavy accessorizing, you can easily throw on a coat and focus on enjoying your holiday party. 

Speaking of, I hope you had a very happy Thanksgiving! If you're also celebrating with cyber weekend shopping, don't miss out on Tobi's 50% off sitewide sale here with the code "THX". Let me know what your favorite pieces are!
