New England in the winter is simply breathtaking. J&I made a quick trip up north this past weekend to celebrate a very special lady’s birthday. Had a couple beautiful snow showers while we were there. I was so surprised to see how much snow New England currently has and unfortunately the meteorologists were calling for more snow this evening. Nothing quite like the peacefulness of winter and fresh fallen snow but have to say I am about ready for spring to roll in. Kind of over boots, layers, and puffy coats for the season but winter has made plans to stick around so for now the layers are here to stay.
No better time a year to pull out all things red and pink than this week. With Valentines Day just a work-week away, I’ve pulled together three looks inspired by the week of love to feature this week on RW. Today’s office appropriate look features wide leg trousers, a perfect shade of pink blouse, and a reversible fur vest for warmth. I love this blush pink fur vest for the winter looks. The jacket in these pictures is a light jacket – not warm enough for winter weather but when layered with the fur vest is perfect for a polished look and adds a little variety (read gives us a nice break from the puffy coat).
These wool trousers are one of my winter work wardrobe essentials. On days when the wind whips through the city streets, these trousers make the commute to work bearable. A wide leg trouser is a great investment piece for any wardrobe – they look great with tailored tops, blouses, and blazers. Finding the perfect heel is key for any wide leg trouser – see this week’s style files for additional wide leg trouser inspiration.
Happy Monday! Thanks for stopping in..
