1 - texture, texture, texture. keep it interesting with different fabrics during the winter.
2 - black + (insert favorite bright color here) =
3 - make fur casual with sneakers, glasses and messy hair.
4 - off-duty models change up their coats to make similar black, skinny pants look different.
It's about that time of year again. That time when spring clothing starts to emerge onto the scene and you look at your winter clothes with pure and utter disdain. Long gone are the days (i.e. end of August) when you couldn't wait watch the leaves turn colors and to begin piling on the layers for the chilly temperatures ahead; you know the time--when cold weather actually seems magical for those few fleeting moments. No, these are the times that test your patience and if you live in a colder climate, you find yourself asking why you live where you do.
I am in dire need of winter dressing inspiration. Above are just a couple things I find myself saying every.single.morning. If I never see another coat again, I'll be fine....that is, until September rolls around again.

Brussel sprouts for breakfast? I've been convinced with an easy breakfast hash that includes bacon, mushrooms and sweet potatoes. You can easily mix this up with any vegetables, but I wanted to keep it savory. Add some eggs and buttered toast and you have yourself a hearty and somewhat healthy (bacon, you win) breakfast. I used this recipe with some variations; I added mushrooms and grated some smoked gouda on top at the end.

|H&M dress (similar here and here) + tights, Manolo Blahnik heels, Celine bag|
This dress has done double-duty for me this month. I wore it on New Years Eve (sans turtleneck, of course) and again to work the next week--with a turtleneck, of course, because it's been downtown frigid. It's not a maternity dress; I just bought a few sizes larger than my normal size. It was the perfect answer to my normal (boring) uniform of oversized sweaters and pants.

1.) You can avoid puffer coats by taking advantage of the whole "oversized" coat trend. Why? You can fit more layers underneath that will keep you warm!
2.) Wear thick socks--even if wearing low booties. (I know lots of people who forego socks with their UGG boots or if they're booties are low-cut.) If it's truly cold and you're walking around outside, you will regret any exposed skin. Frostbite really happens!
3.) Hats and gloves are crucial. I know this sounds obvious but street style pictures often depict stylish people with unzipped coats, exposed ankles and no gloves; frostbite is never in fashion.

Alright, enough whining from me; I just have a whole new appreciation for maternity dressing--it's not easy! My promise to you (and myself) is that I will get a bit more creative as I continue to grow in size.
