Moody Watercolors

Thursday, November 21, 2013

Break the LBD trend and standout at your next party by adding some color to the typical holiday uniform.  
Showoff your colors with an edgy twist that's perfect for the season.  
Go ahead, paint your eyelids to match your gown. 
The perfect accessory for that holiday party? A sparkly clutch! This one is chic and roomy enough for all the lip glosses your heart desires.

I've recently come to the realization that I have a very warm-weather centered wardrobe. Throughout the colder months I'm always trying to find creative and stylish ways to restyle my summer dresses or my favorite tanks. 

It's super simple to throw a sweater over a dress and add a blazer. What I decided to do with this look is take that idea and put a spin on it. 

This is one of my favorite strapless dresses that I layered underneath a lace top. I love how the beautiful colors show through! By adding tights and boots (and maybe a jacket...leather anyone?) this look is party approved even on those chilly nights out!

  25. It's a great idea to wear your favorite summer items to winter. It is a beautiful dress so why not wear it all the time. You look pretty and loving that hair. The boots edge it up which I love.
