End of Winter Outfit Inspirations: Nordstroms Part 2, Coffee and Museum

P1161783In order to beat the winter blahs, Ain't No Mom Jeans hooked up with Leisa Payton, a Personal Stylist at Nordstroms to glean some ideas of how to mix up our winter clothing with a little dose of Spring.  Also, don't miss Part 1, a perfect little playground or play-date outfit.

For the next bit of winter inspiration (pictured again on Becky at left), Leisa chose a soft range of neutrals, paired with bright pops of colors, and finished off with light-colored leather accessories.  The light gray boots and soft caramel bag are surprisingly versatile, and will only look better with age.  I love this slightly dressed up (but still easy) look for when I'm headed downtown for coffee and a museum.

Becky is wearing a Phillip Lim blazer, Vince straight-leg jeans, Frye boots, gloves and scarf by Nordstrom's own brand and a Marni bag.

Ideas To Takeaway:

  • For an infusion of Spring into your style, try a monochromatic pallet of soft neutrals: gray, beige, white.  This works best when you mix contrasting textures.
  • Add pops of color with winter accessories (scarf, gloves, hat)
  • Turn any scarf into an infinity scarf:  Leisa  tied the ends of the scarf together and wrapped it three times around Becky's neck.  (For a true infinity scarf look, just wrap it twice).
  • Try the new short flat boot in a light color.  They look amazing with jeans now, but will look equally amazing in warmer weather with skirts or shorts. 
  • Instead of a diaper bag, try a butter-soft leather messenger.  It's just plain cool.

Leisa, thanks again!

    LOVE the boots. And the grey jeans reminded me that I have a very cute pair of grey skinny jean capris that will probably tuck into boots–so I don’t have to wait until spring to wear them! Maybe just until this baby is out of me…
