color crush 2

I think Madison is going to miss most of the snow dumping on the Upper Midwest this week, but there's no denying winter's coming here. I finally started wearing a coat to work (little overdue there), and alternate-side street parking starts this weekend—I'm guessing I'll get at least two tickets for being in the wrong place at the wrong time before March. Boo. If hot chocolate, steaming soup and a light therapy box aren't enough, here's some color inspiration to keep you warm and happy for the next few months. Pale pink is really pretty in frosty weather—it has an icy tone that mirrors frozen lakes and early sunsets. And it complements olive in a fresh and muted way I really like. I'm so over neons and brights, but NEED a colorful closet to keep my mood up when everything is so dull outside. This combination is a toned-down way to inject some life into the typical black-and-gray winter wardrobe. Clinique eye shadow in Ballet Flats is a great natural shade for every day, this quartz pendant literally makes me drool, and Dior's Incognito lacquer is going to be my standby til spring—it won't show chips as quickly as darker colors, but still has some body. And because clothes and jewelry can't do it all, Narciso Rodriguez perfume will have you literally smelling the roses. I gave it to my mom for Christmas last year, and she loved the mix of rose petals and musk—a modern update for Calvin Klein Obsession fans. Hope you see some things you like. Stay warm and remember: even numbered side on even days, odd numbered side on odd days!
