A blustery day, indeed, is featured in these photos. Despite all that wind and cold, I attempted to stay strong and get these blog photos in…this was perhaps the quickest shoot yet in Fashion Huntress blogging. I’ll leave this post brief, as I think the quote and photos say it all.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I used to think platform heels wouldn’t work in a conservative work setting, but I’ve really changed my mind on that one. I’ve worn these heels many times at work, though I always wear them with tights or other conservative pieces. If you’re going to wear something that’s a bit less conservative at work (ie metallic, platforms, etc), then just pair them with an otherwise “covered up” look. Though, again, this may not be true for all work environments, so you’ll have to take it case by case, based on your own work environment.
2) I am loving pastels during this winter/spring transition! I’ve been wearing pastels with dark pieces to transitions my spring pieces in winter. For some reason, I used to shy away from pastels in winter, but I’ve noticed that when pastels are anchored with other “winter” pieces they add some much needed lightness to the cold. Bust out your own spring pastels, and consider matching them with dark tights, dark shoes, or whatever else you want!
Thank you, lovely readers, for stopping by! I appreciate it so much! I also appreciated all of the kind words on my birthday/blogversary. You are all so kind to share your thoughts and well wishes! I hope everyone has a good start to the week.
