Winter Brights

During cold winter months we tend to gravitate toward darker colors. But dark gets old quickly. A great way to brighten up your day – Winter Brights. Have I always  been brave enough to wear them? No. Are there rules about wearing light colors during cold months? Hah, rules!! So 90’s!  If it makes you feel good – rock it girls!

I’m planning on rocking this look sometime next week! Thought I’d created it before I forget about it. I caved in and ordered this coat from J.Crew – sale on top of sale – kindaaaa hard to pass.  Excited to brighten up my winter with this pink coat. When it’s not below 0. In that case, I’ll be rocking my down coat! 

Do you wear light colors during winter months?

    I usually wear darker colors during winter. But you are right, your mood changes when you wear something lighter once in a while. Good idea!

    I've got a sweater that's close to the color of that coat and I can't stop wearing it this winter! Bright colors are very necessary in the frozen tundra of Michigan during the winter. 🙂

      That's not cool! Couple of days before I purchased mine they had it in every single size. Must have been the addl 40% off that did it.
