pin real life / 4

utah is such a tricky little bird, we've been waiting for a "real" winter for months and now, here it is March, and the snow is coming.
there's something about a white-out skyline that makes me go for the winter whites.
i wore a version last year (and man am i missing that hair right about now!) 

this year, my winter-white-loving-heart has made room for pretty much any other neutral in addition. grays and greiges. off white and cream. blush and ballet pink. 
the point of these combinations, like with wearing all black, is to have a way to mix several textures without it being busy or loud.
i think these below looks are even more successful than an all black outfit 
because all black tends to create a unbroken column (which is why it's so slimming) 
while each of these neutral pieces stay separated to the eye.

in real life:
secretary blouse [thrifted] blazer* & skirt [H&M] heels [Missoni for Target]
lips: fuschia fever by Maybelline, the perfect barbie pink!
i usually try to keep it just one pic of myself, you know, just trying to keep my self-absorption in check...
(says the girl taking pictures of herself and posting them to the internet.)
but, i loved how something so simple as pushing blazer sleeves up
makes the look so much less stuffy. 
it is definitely not a wear-anywhere-all-day look if you have babies.
but for a few hours at church with little to no run-ins with spaghetti sauce fingers?
perfect.
