This is what I wore a few days ago when the weather was almost at freezing point; layers and layers of clothing in dark muted hues. And come to think of it, it is super hard to wear color in a very, very cold and cloudy winter day. This outfit as you can see is totally different from the one in my previous post.

I am putting on  double turtle neck tops; a charcoal and black sweater turtle neck over a black knit one. Then I wore this mauve A-line denim skirt that was custom made by my seamstress a couple of years ago. I make trips to the local fabric store now and then in search of unique fabrics and when I saw the mauve denim material on one of my visits, I snatched it up right away and designed this A-line skirt; simple and chic. The dark mauve color is a nice way to add subtle color to an otherwise boring outfit like this one...:)

Another way I have been incorporating color into my outfit is through the color of my nails. I admit it has been difficult to do this with home keeping and taking care of three young kids but it is a fashion trend I'm determined to keep...:) This metallic blue color has been my favorite for sometime  now and I have gotten a few positive comments about it. My hubby is still surprised at it though and I got quite a laugh when he exclaimed the other day; "What is up with the nails?"....:)

Also, in the absence of color, "texturing" is another way to add interest into winter outfits. In this case, my chunky outer sweater fits the bill. I felt so warm in my layered outfit that I didn't really need an outer winter jacket. However, if you live in a place like Minnesota where the weather can be very unpredictable most times, it is wise to always have one handy
