Okay, so this really isn't an outfit outfit. But since this is something I've actually worn, I'm making you look at these pictures. I wear all black pretty often; it's my go-to when I am running late for work and I don't know what to wear. It easy, you don't have to worry about complimentary colors, and it looks professional.
 
I've mentioned it before, but winter is not my favorite. I just hate being cold, and I hate the fact that it's always so dark and gloomy. It probably sounds silly, but having a bright coat helps a little. Since green is my favorite color, this coat is a little bit of happy for me on bleary days.

What about you? Do you have any clothing items that make you happy in the winter? What's your go-to professional outfit?

  1. I love green! That coat is so fun.

    I need a good long cardigan, scarves, and riding boots!

  2. Agreed! A bright coat is so much more cheerful than standard black in a gloomy winter! That green is lovely.

  3. I love the green coat! Most of my winter wear is neutral- black, gray, or white. But my brother did get me a pair of purple leather gloves for Christmas a couple years ago and I love the fun pop it gives in the blah weather :)

  6. I love, love color in winter. Why should we dress as dreary as the sky? I also am a fan of all black with a bright color.

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
