Winter White

Award season is here and I couldn’t be happier! For the Golden Globes this past Sunday, a few New York bloggers got together in a suite at The Lexington to watch the show see the dresses. We sipped Moet, ate way too much pizza, and not-so-silently gasped (both in horror and awe) at all of the red carpet fashion. Such a fun night! My favorite looksย from the Golden Globes were Margot Robbie, Olivia Wilde, and Kate Beckinsale.

Feeling inspired by Margot Robbie’s simple white Gucci dress with crystal and emerald embellishments (and her emerald Louboutins!), I set out to create a similar look for work this week.

Even though it’s the middle of January, I sifted through my closet to find my white jeans. Winter White… It’s okay! To make sure I didn’t look seasonally inappropriate, I incorporated some rich textures, like this faux fur vest from Club Monaco. I bought this dark green vest last year, but hadn’t actually worn it yet for whatever reason. I ended up really liking the monochromatic look of pairing it with a similar toned blouse. And to up the sparkle factor, I added my beloved sequin pumps. Done and done.

To mimic Margot’s up-do, I tied my hair back in a low messy bun. Ha, just kidding. I can’t keep my own secrets — I was simply too lazy to do my hair yesterday morning. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Who do you think wore it best at the Golden Globes this year?

    Great minds think alike! I paired my white jeans with my faux fur vest today, too. Although, mine is not inspired by that gorgeous dress. I didn’t even watch the Golden Globes.

    I’ve been browsing online greater than three hours today, yet I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours.
    It’s pretty value enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made just right
    content as you did, the net can be much more useful than ever before.

    I love wearing white jeans in the winter if there is no rain, snow or slush on the ground. I do love those killer glitter print heels. I have no problem wearing a little white summery dress in November weather permitting.
