Maybe it’s the warm(er) weather and/or the rain here, but I find myself really enjoying the fact that I can still run my errands outside and walk to and from the subway comfortably (aka not fighting snow and wind). Mid-December outdoor walks? Totally a dream come true in the Midwest. The fiance and I even grilled over the weekend, readers. That’s how you know you’re in Midwest winter heaven: you’re outdoors grilling in 40 degree weather and loving every minute of it. In light of this warm and festive spirit, I pulled out my brightest, most neon look. I’m feeling very merry, bright, and bold.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I’ve decided that “outerwear” can totally be “inner wear.” I think this coat is probably an outdoor coat, but it actually functions more like a blazer in winter time. This coat/blazer definitely has me thinking more about the potential to use more outdoor pieces indoors, especially during winter. And, of course, there’s no easier way to go shopping than in your own closet! Check out your “coat” collection. You may find, like me, that a few of your coats can actually serve as an indoor blazer. I’ve found that this also works with ponchos, capes, and vests. Happy closet shopping, readers!
Btw, jacket was last shown here, also as an indoor/outdoor coat:
2) I’ve been wearing this statement necklace all the time lately; as you can see from my last few posts, this necklace is really versatile.
To invest in a great, high quality statement necklace, you don’t need to spend a ton! I do, however, like to pick-up statement necklaces that will match a lot of outfits. I also often pick neutral colored stones and gems, and a necklace that covers a lot of “surface area” for use with otherwise plain or neutral tops.
Anyone else have a favorite statement necklace these days? Loving holiday brights? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! Happy mid-week!
