Winter Blues

Outside wearing black texttured sweater jacket, ocean blue turtleneck, black and white tweed skirt, black tights, black booties, and blue mirrored sunglasses on head.
During the winter I find it hard to be motivated. The grey skies and freezing weather have given way to my winter blues and longing for summer. I combat this feeling with my outfit choices. So today I added a hint of blue to bring warmth into this cold, cloudy and windy day. Most people would not wear sunglasses since there is almost no sun, but I thought “who cares,” if I want to wear sunglasses on a seemingly cloudy day I should just do it! I did manage to snap a few photos when the sun popped out for a moment so it doesn’t look so out of place in this post. What do you think of this outfit? Have you ever worn sunglasses on a cloudy day simply because it matched your outfit?

  4. I wear sunglasses a lot because my eyes are pretty sensitive to light, especially when I am driving my car. And nobody needs wrinkles from squinting into the light.

    1. I didn't even think about squinting causing wrinkles. That's all the more reason to wear them all the time. Thank you Anne :)

  7. This is such a beautiful pairing, Lili! I adore that skirt and that shade of blue looks wonderful on you. I, too, wear sunnies even when it's cloudy, especially when I have no makeup on, haha, so you're not alone :) Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you're having a wonderful day so far!

  8. I actually have these same issues with sunglasses, because I love wearing them and I'm always tempted during winter but then it's like - I'm gonna look like an idiot so I don't. But anyway, I'm the opposite. I love winter and it's when I'm moat inspired but this has alot to do with people's tastes.

    I love your whole outfit - it's so so so on point!!!!!! The boots have to be my favourite.

  9. I do love a pop of colour during winter, it's such a refreshing break from the usual dark shades. Love the pop of blue in your outfit and you look absolutely lovely as always. xx

  16. Ah! I love this outfit! It would be great for my work, plus it's super cute :) I like the skirt, especially! I'll have to check out your link!

    It's funny, because as I read that you were saying it was too cloudy I was thinking 'It LOOKS sunny! Is that cloudy in Florida?" haha! I'm glad you found a bit of sun! I guess people wear sunglasses when it's just bright outside, people with more sensitive eyes and so on! Or people who spend a lot of time around snow or water, to combat reflections!

    1. Thank you Erin. It was so cloudy when I started taking the pictures that I got a bit discouraged. Then suddenly the sun popped out so I ran back out and had my husb snap a few. The funny part is they were still dark so I had to lighten them a lot, but I think it came out pretty well.

  21. You look stunning in this outfit and I realised that your sunnies matches your blue blouse. Hope the weather ain't freezing cold when you took the photos - cuz you ain't clad in many layers of clothing hehehe. And you nailed it by bringing us warmth in your look :)

  22. you know it happened to me a few times that I wore sunglasses when it was cloudy...and then the sun magically appeared and I felt like I invoked it or something with my sunglasses.

    I do love this outfit! The skirt looks great on you..and those ankle boots with high heels are a perfect pairing with it...you look divine.

  27. Blue definitely makes a dull day brighter. I love the photo shoot location, the water blends in with the whole blue element. The sunglasses add pizzazz to the whole look and its okay to wear them even on a cold day. You styled everything to perfection, you look stunning!
