WINTER LOOKS PERFECT FOR ANYWHERE
One of my favorite combinations is bright pink with either navy or black. The colors look so striking together. The day I wore this outfit, we had a high of 64 degrees Fahrenheit, so I was finally able to pull out my black leather jacket. I’ve had it for about 15 years and love it with jeans and pants.
Leather jackets over sweaters are perfect for temperatures in the 50s/60s Fahrenheit, like we have in the winter here in Naples, Florida. In even chillier weather, you can wear them under a heavy wool coat, like you would a blazer.
If you like the idea of layers but not leather, you can wear a black blazer or black quilted jacket over a sweater and tee, and create a very similar look to what I’m showing here.
I paired my leather jacket with a white cotton crewneck tee, black cotton cardigan, and black leather ballet flats. I wore it for running errands at Waterside Shops, and while I was there I stopped in at Talbots for their winter trunk show. Two outfits in particular caught my eye, and I show them down below. My absolute favorite was this Black Tweed Shift Dress. It would be wonderful for New Year’s eve or Valentine’s Day. (For details about my makeup and outfit, scroll to the bottom of the page.)
Before I close, I want to thank all of you who have been so kind to continually visit me here on my blog during the past year. It has meant so much to me, and I’m very grateful.
Wishing all of you a safe, healthy, and happy New Year!

Scenes From The Video
(ABOVE & BELOW) I thought this Shirt was so pretty because it has gold metallic thread running through it, plus gold buttons. It would be great for Valentine’s Day, if paired with Black Velveteen Ankle Pants, Black High Heels, and a Black Ruana, like those shown below.
Black Ruana (Faux-Fur Collar Removable)
Black Sequin Pumps (More Colors Available)
(ABOVE) One of my favorite colors to pair with navy is green, which is why I loved this Black Watch Plaid Cashmere Scarf. It looked so cozy paired with the Plaid Cotton Tee. The Leather Crossbody Bag (color Blue Dazzle) added a fun pop of color.

(ABOVE) One of my favorite casual outfits in the trunk show was this red Tinsel-Dot Sweater and Lumiere Plaid Shirt with a Tartan Plaid Ruana. I think it’s all so playful. I love how the model, Beverley, tossed the ruana over her shoulder. It looks perfect that way. The outfit was shown with a Buffalo Plaid Tote for the trunk show (she’s carrying it over her left arm), but off the runway I’d carry a black tote instead. Or, if I wanted to carry the plaid tote (plaid totes and handbags are wonderful accents), I’d switch out the plaid ruana for this Black Ruana, which comes with a faux-fur collar that’s removable.

(ABOVE) This was my favorite look in the show and combines a Black Tweed Shift Dress (no wool), Black Suede Bow Clutch, and Black Ruana (faux-fur collar removable) . It would be lovely for New Year’s eve or for a dressy Valentine’s day evening.
