Colorful Layers

There are 54 days until spring. I’m counting down. What I’m not doing, though, is waiting until spring to incorporate the season’s vivid colors into my wardrobe. It feels so right to wear cheery colors like mauve and fuchsia on gloomy winter days.

My colorful look is anchored by a 2-in-1 cardigan top that combines a crisp white top with a mauve cardigan. It’s feels as comfortable as pajamas. For size reference, I’m wearing a size small.


To play up the colors in the look, I added a brightly patterned infinity scarf that blends fuchsia and blue and a striking fuchsia beanie.

Basic black leggings tucked into a pair of ankle boots complete the look. The boots are a taller pair of ankle boots from Naturalizer. I was concerned at first that ankle boots with a taller shaft height would shorten my legs, but that hasn’t been the case with this pair. See how they look with tights in Embracing Winter with Color.

    This makes me feel warm and based on the temps outside, that's no easy feat! I love these bright and happy colors.

    Love this colorful look. I'm a FL girl so Spring has pretty much sprung for me, but this is such a fun look!

    Hello! This' a pretty nice and colourful outfit! I like the overall look, especially your lipstick and your scarf. I'm not a big fan of leggings but with boots it works so well! Bisouuuu
