Coal and Snow

Hello Lovelies and Happy Friday!! Got any plans for the weekend? Mine just might be to stay under a warm blanket with a big cup of hot chocolate. Lately these cold temperatures have me pondering just when is winter ever going to end. With so many fabulous trends in the new year I am ready to bring out the thinner layers and hang up my wool coat. Speaking of style buzz for 2013, one look that I am itching to play with in the new year is black and white. This classic combo reminds me of the ever so beautiful style of Audrey Hepburn, Coco Chanel, know women who invoke a sense of timeless style and beauty. With winter still upon us (at least for the Northeast) this easy to wear style has got me thinking that a new title is in order. Yup, until the weather starts to warm up and my toes defreeze, it is no longer called black and white. As of now, I have donned this current rave the fabulous trend of "Coal and Snow".

It's kinda hard for me to see this as a trend for 2013 when black and white...excuse me, Coal and Snow have been the perfect matrimony since bread and butter--lightly toasted please. None the less I am very pleased that it is all the rage more so now since I'm finding a lot of black and white in my closet. Yes, I am still in love with my smile inducing colors, but sometimes you just have to take it back to the basics.

Ain't that the truth Chanel...ain't that the truth!

  1. You know I love a bit of simplicity- er, sometimes- but seriously I love that tweed shift! I have it and love it, if it's still available you should get it! ;)
