Good morning all! It is inauguration day. I thought about not watching, but then I realized I couldn’t just stick my head in the sand. I have to be an active participant. I have to at least watch and take notes and make sure that I am aware, so I can stand up when needed and fight for what I believe. I’m planning on going to the Women’s March tomorrow, and I will have an update on the blog next week.
I wore this super easy look during a rainy day last week. This sweater dress literally takes zero effort, but still looks so good. I always pull it out when I’m stumped on an outfit, or when I need something quick that I know will still look good. This time I’ve decided to let the dress speak for itself and not add too many accessories, but I actually also really love it belted. I’ve tried thin belts and thick ones, and both look good. As you may have noticed, with more classics and basics, I tend to gravitate towards black, but I absolutely love this maroon colors. I’m trying to branch out a little and get more into beiges and reds, which really do pair with pretty much anything.
Though the dress checks off both the cute and comfortable requirements, the raincoat is the true star of this look. I love, love, the ruffled details in the back! It’s so feminine, and so pretty, but still not over the top. I think that because it’s this beautiful blue color, it can get away with more girly accents; if it were pink, it would be too much. With so much rain that we’ve been having here in D.C. (unfortunately not cold enough to snow), a stylish raincoat is a must!
I hope everyone has a great weekend! More looks coming your way next week! And don’t forget that you can get frequent outfit inspiration from my Instagram, whitesilkblackleather.
