Winter Fashion Series


It's a challenge coming up with different outfits every day.  I want to look presentable, but want to be comfortable at the same time.  I had an idea to ask other people to help me come up with a collection of outfits that you would wear on a typical/normal day.  Out to run errands, casual day at the office, lunch with a friend, your child's soccer game...whatever it is that you do!  So here are 15 incredible ladies who are sharing their "everyday" winter outfits with you.  (And I put them in categories to help you when you're searching through your own wardrobe!)


Colored pants are the way to go!!  Pair them with neutrals, a funky pattern, or a belt and you are set!



Scarves make all the difference in the world.  Take an outfit you normally wear and add a funky/colorful scarf to change it up!

Go bright!  I love that these 3 ladies sent in bright colored outfits, because it fits all 3 of their personalities so perfectly.  Pairing a bright color shirt or scarf with neutral bottoms can freshen up any outfit.



Did you know that wearing red can increase self-confidence, which increases your motivation to work towards success?  Try putting a red cardi over your outfit, making your outfit pop with some red shoes, or pairing a neutral top with a red pair of pants.


Aren't these outfits fantastic?  They all are so, so cute...but so comfy and practical!  I hope you got some inspiration to carry you through the rest of the winter.

If you would like to be part of the Spring Fashion Series, please send me an email (ashanderson10@gmail.com) with the Subject Line:  Spring Series.  You don't have to send me the picture now, just an email.  You can definitely participate in the Spring Series even if you were featured in this one.  And no, you don't have to be a blogger to participate!

Linking up with Shanna and The Pleated Poppy
PS.  I hope you'll link up with me this Thursday for January's Favorite Things!
