I’ve always loved tonal dressing and try to play off the same family of colors as much as possible. Here I’ve played with three variations of pink. The seriousness of the pleats is softened by the silk and the faux fur adds another element of softness. I’ve always tried to get more use out of my summer wardrobe by layering in the fall. A fun note about the ring – it was used by queens in the olden days to monitor the going in and out of strangers inconspicuously. I had been searching for it for the past few years, when I found it on my recent trip to India. The Celine pouch is my go-to beach bag that worked with the color palette of this look.
These photos were taken outside of Chicago at a friends home. Though it may not look it, it was beyond freezing out while we shot these photos. However, we were able to capture the perfect afternoon light.
Hope you are staying warm and wish you a lovely week ahead.
