Downtown Springfield is filled with some of my favorite coffee shops, clothing stores, old architecture, and interesting people. Anytime I need inspiration, a fun night out with my friends, a coffee-computer date, a theater play to see with my husband, or a Saturday night church service; Downtown is my go-to!
Since it looks like we’ve got a few more weeks of winter than expected this year, I’ve styled an outfit to keep you warm in the coming days, on trend, and comfortable! Take a look at my winter style for a GNO, a fire pit date night, or a any-winter-day look!
I am a plaid-loving girl, and this Jeweled Plaid Button Down is one of my favorite winter pieces in my wardrobe! A blouse like this is great for a 9-5 look, from the office to dinner; a perfect button up is a closet essential for all women! Plus, who doesn’t love a good plaid in the winter?
A skirt with the perfect cut, fit, length, and neutral color is another piece that all women should have! I chose a camel colored fit & flare (skater) skirt to balance out the yellow tones in my skin! If you have more red in your skin, a pale camel or khaki might be a great option for you! Skirts are something I love to wear year round since they are so versatile throughout the seasons!
Monochromatic dressing is a simple and chic way to create the illusion of longer legs or torso. I am not a matchy-matchy gal in the slightest, but black on black is always great for a slimming look and added height! Next time you plan on wearing a skirt or a dress, try pairing a solid tight with a solid colored heeled boot for instant length.
A classic red lip is a fun look to tie into any modern outfit, read below for my favorite Red Lippie Brand!

* Milani Cosmetics is my favorite drugstore brand for Lipstick! The red lippie used in these photos is 05 Red Label and works best when lips are lined with the tip of the lipstick first. You can find Milani products at most drugstores, including Walgreens. (I buy mine at Walgreens, if you are a part of their rewards program, they sometimes run specials and discounts on lipstick!)
