The holidays are upon us, and for my holiday outfit this year I’m going for merry and bright. I know a lot of people shop for a new holiday outfit, but this year I decided to forgo shopping (I’ve done a lot of that lately) I pulled this outfit together from my favorite bold and bright pieces. (My only bold and bright pieces?)
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I live in neutrals. And this outfit sums up my fall neutrals – greys, military greens and black. And you probably also know that I live in my military jacket. It’s my staple for spring and for fall. And cool summer evenings. And it fits easily over sweaters, so I can wear it even on mild winter days. So you see, I try to wear my military jacket all year round.
Pink and blush have slowly been taking over my closet lately. Pink is becoming a go-to color for me and I plan to wear pink into fall and winter. And I’m not the only one. Soft pinks and blushes are everywhere this fall. From pumps, to sneakers, to coats and moto jackets, pinks and blushes are all the rage.
My statement skirt is my life saver during transitional fall weather. I usually go for clean, simple and grey (notice the sweater and the boots), but when it comes to skirts, I love ones with flowers and interesting details.
A military jacket has been my staple outerwear for fall and spring for years now. I bought my first one in Amsterdam years ago (I remember that at the time people were already wearing them in Europe, but they were really hard to find in the US). But in a moment of “I need to purge my closet of old stuff” last summer, I donated it. I regretted it almost immediately as I started seeing stylish moms at the playground looking stylish and happy in their own military jackets. And since then I had been on a hunt to replace it.
