Just because it's cold out, doesn't mean you can't have a little fun with your winter wardrobe. For example, adding a cheerful coat into your rotation will work wonders when you're feeling the February blues! When in doubt, incorporate a bright pop of color - for me, pink always does the trick!

Similar to how pink is a whimsical, unexpected hue in the dead of winter, a baby blue beret is a fresh alternative to a beanie. I love how this style adds instant polish to any outfit and looks just as chic with jeans as it does with an LBD.

While the fur collar on this coat may be a bit wild for some, I absolutely love it! It's one of those things that just makes me smile. But this piece is actually super versatile too, as the collar is detachable. So if I'm ever NOT feeling this fuzzy pink goodness, I can easily toss it aside and voila -- I'm left with a sophisticated camel peacoat.

Every fall I like to update my cold-weather wardrobe by purchasing one new coat. Since coats are constantly worn on rotation during the winter months, I find the investment totally worth it. After all, some days your coat is your ENTIRE outfit! A standout piece like this fur-collar one is definitely stylish enough to stand on it's own. I even recently wore it to New York Fashion Week when it was too cold to try too hard!

Winter Reboot // ruffle-hem pants + felt hat

Nyc fashion blogger Kathleen Harper's winter outfit ideas
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but we've still got a solid month left of winter -- at least! I mean, just ask the ground hog. If you're like me, your wardrobe is probably feeling pretty stale by now. During uninspired times like these, I find my style mojo again through unexpected takes on old favorites.

A printed bag is known for transforming a simple look into a wow-worthy one. Up top, switch up your tried-and-true beanie for a trendy fedora. And even a statement necklace can help breathe new life into that sweater you've already worn three times this month.

When you've had enough of your skinny jeans, opt for something a little more polished. I love ruffle-hem pants for their style but also their comfort. Even better, they're a refreshing take on a workweek staple -- one you won't easily get sick of.

It's hard NOT to have spring fever this time of year, but with freezing temps like these, it looks like we'll have to be a bit more patient!

Feel The Love // Valentine's Day

My Valentine's Day lookbook wouldn't be complete without an LBD! A little black dress is basically THE date night staple, and it's a piece you can never go wrong in. I love this one's flutter sleeves and sexy shoulder cutouts.

For the year's most romantic night, I accessorized my black dress with pink and red accents. This chic snakeskin clutch adds texture and interest, while my sleeveless blush trench makes a dreamy and sophisticated top layer.

Winter fashion hack: give your longer dresses and skirts a new look by pairing them with over-the-knee boots. No skin showing, no problem! And the best part? No tights needed but your legs still stay totally covered and toasty!

Valentine's Day is just a week away! If you find yourself in a pinch, dust off your favorite LBD and layer on some festive accessories. But let's be real, when in doubt, a red lip is all you need!
