Lavender Roses in the Snow

Lavender Roses in the Snow

This look was inspired by two amazing recent additions to my wardrobe. They might be more geared towards the spring season, but on a warmer day (a couple weeks ago), I got some mileage out of these romantic pieces. I was partly inspired by my room, which is painted in lavender and features oversized black furniture, I wanted to echo that in this look.

My jacket was a Christmas gift, and is still available at Target. My sister got it in a gorgeous true blue, and I will keep my eye out if it eventually comes in yellow or red!

My dress is from nowistyle. I love the purple rose print amidst the neutral grey background. The dress is made of a jersey material, so I layered up with a lavender chiffon shirt underneath, and cinched the look together with a lavender Versace for H&M Cruise Collection belt. I love the gold medallion buckle, and the way the supple purple leather perfectly compliments the print on the dress. I usually don’t like being so matchy-matchy, but the dress completely transformed with a shirt underneath. If you’re planning on throwing out an old long-sleeved dress, try layering a shirt under and see if it gets a rebirth before you decide to dismiss the look… You’d be surprised how a collar can add interest to a crew cut neckline.

Continuing with the lavender rose theme, I wore these ornate purple statement earrings from Forever 21. I think that statement earrings are the new statement necklace, and if your earlobes can bear the weight, they instantly compliment a long neck and elongate your face.

While I can’t wait to wear this stunning ruffle coat again, I will have to wait patiently in my heavy down parka till the mercury rises.
