I suppose I should have been wearing orange, blue or green, but really I was feeling kinda neutral yesterday. These are my go-to colors right here: black, white and gray. As I mentioned in a previous post here, my natural gravitation towards black could be a product of my growing up in NYC. If I didn’t intentionally turn away from these basic colors when I’m shopping, I would have a closetful of shades of gray, black and white. Besides, I can appreciate a pop of color, especially on these dreary winter days we’re having.
This winter white Trouve sweater is one of the most comfortable, cozy sweaters I own and I love the side zip detail. I’ve worn the Trouve tuxedo pants in a previous post here and I have to say that I’m so glad I found them. The fit is perfect, neither too tight nor saggy. The belted coat is an old J.Crew favorite of mine. Ah and the beanie hat, I love hats but I’ve shied away from them, mainly because I don’t have the facial shape that looks good in them. But I figure I’ll try anything once. Besides, just because I don’t have the perfect face for hats doesn’t mean I’m never gonna wear them in the same way that just because I don’t have the perfect body for a bathing suit doesn’t mean I’m not gonna wear them.
Today’s natural high: Watching a video, that my hubby recorded, of my 4-year-old performing “Let It Go” from Frozen with hand motions just like Elsa in the movie. I realize I’m a little biased but man, the girl deserves a ’10’ for performance. I’m not one to torture others with my kids’ pictures and videos (ok, I am), but this one I’ve got to share. It’s posted on my FB page here. Would appreciate it if you could ‘like’ my page while you’re there. 🙂
