Winter Fashion Challenge

I'm doing December a little different this year, I declined the invite to a cookie exchange party and am reinventing my fashion style as well. I enjoyed the Fall Fashion Challenge so much that I signed up for the Winter Fashion Challenge. Thanks to the previous challenge most of the items on the shopping list I already owned and here is a picture of my capsule. Some of the new items I've added to my wardrobe in the past couple months are a poncho sweater, herringbone vest, embellished sweater, dark wash skinny jeans, grey jeans, plaid shirt and riding boots. I've admired women wearing riding boots for the last few years but never got around to buying my own pair. This year I've really noticed that the fall/winter "uniform" is skinny jeans with tall boots over them and then a scarf. Funny how everyone is dressing in the same outfit now. lol

Yesterday I reviewed Nicky Hilton's - 365 Style book which is something I never would have thought to pick up had it not been for these fashion challenges. I always knew how to dress myself, but I wanted to be better at it, just having a more pulled together look and to always feel good about my daily outfits. In her book she lists her must have fashion items for each season, and I smiled when I saw it was some of the same staples the fashion challenges had me purchase.
