Last week I talked about wearing winter appropriate brights. Red being an obvious choice with its distinct holiday color scheme and its roots in the classic buffalo check pattern that adorns winter scarves, coats, hats and the like. This week I am all about mixing spring brights with winter separates. There is something about the month of January that makes me extremely hopeful. It may be that spring is right around the corner. I am already starting to see bathing suits in stores so it can't be that far away, right? With bright winter mornings like today's, it's hard not to look toward the horizon.
To incorporate this bold-print skirt with my winter separates, I tried to keep things fairly neutral with my gray sweater and tights. Not completely ignoring the warm colors in the skirt, I wore my brown riding boots, and I added an interesting texture and color with this gold and turquoise statement necklace.
