Warmth in Colors

"In the bitter chills, I am starting to get very innovative with how I keep warm. Some days it feels like a daily fight between practicality and style. I like to think that it doesn't have to be such a battle. Just because the day seems to get darker much too soon doesn't mean your wardrobe should be just as dark. Put on some color in your life! Fight off the cold!"

The temperature is tip toeing to the bottom of the thermometer. The last thing you want to do is get out of bed, let alone get dressed up. You play with the idea of walking into work in your pajamas. Hey, at least they're black pants right? As you convince yourself otherwise, you look at the twenty black pieces in your closet. Perfect! Except you wore black every single day last week and you fear that people will start to catch on or think that you've spiraling towards seasonal depression. Sanity sets in as you stand in front of the mirror pushing the toothbrush in your mouth with more and more vigor. That's me almost every morning, lately. This is my attempt of color during this polar vortex. My legs are being shielded by this thick patent leather skirt while the colorful scarf keeps the top of my body cozy. I can probably wear this scarf every single day. I've also noticed how popular this scarf is in New York City because I've seen 5 people draped with the same thing. We always give each other a glance. It never fails. I like to think that we're giving each other a high five with our eye balls and not a "Bitch, I rock this better than you" stare down. A girl can only hope, right? 

In the bitter chills, I am starting to get very innovative with how I keep warm. Some days it feels like a daily fight between practicality and style. I like to think that it doesn't have to be such a battle. Just because the day seems to get darker much sooner than you would like doesn't mean your wardrobe should be just as dark. Put on some color in your life! Fight off the cold!
