Keeping Color Alive


Keeping Color Alive

  • One Girl

    Jessica is a thirty something mom, wife and bargain hunter who enjoys the challenge of putting together a great outfit from thrift stores, yard sales and those big discount bins....

More often than not I find myself reaching for the gray and the black items from my closet as the weather turns cooler and the winter starts flexing it's muscles. The moodier color palette is comfortable and it fits the colors of the skies, the bare tree limbs and my mood. I purposefully keep some of my summer items in my closet for changing season so that I can surprise even myself with a pop of color. Lighter tops and colorful skirts can stay in your closet year round. Just layer on top of them or underneath them as the weather gets cooler. This particular outfit will transition well with a pair of tights and a denim jacket. Right now since it is still warm in the afternoons I just pair it with a boot to signify summer is gone but not forgotten!
