Whether you need Transitional or Versatile
We all need transitional pieces that can take us from fall to winter, from winter to spring. As well, we need versatile clothing where we can change it up, use it for various occasions on the same day, and extend the wear of the item throughout the season and even for years beyond. That is especially true for holiday clothing choices.
I always love pink for the holidays. It’s soft and surprising, a great variation on red and sparkle. Winter pink is extra special and it plays wonderfully against black. In my outfit above, I love the way this black lace overlays the lovely pink lining, don’t you? And what could be more elegant than pairing the look with sheer hoses and elegant d’orsey style pumps? I like this above look for a fancy business party, an evening Christmas church service, or even a visit to Nutcracker ballet.
In this “Going to church Look”, the Chief Blonde is wearing a MaxMara wool Coat (similar), Monroe and Main pink scarf ($25), and her favorite tote–the Michael Kors Jet Set Multi-functional Tote ($298).
Winter Pink from Thanksgiving to Valentines Day
Can’t you just see how easy these Monroe and Main pieces are to wear? They sit just right and the pink is soft, beautiful and feminine. This skirt is especially wonderful, because it is a tad longer in the back then the front. Not a true hi-lo (which I don’t like) skirt but it just has enough extra length where the skirt hits in the back to say “YES, I could wear this to meet the Queen.”

Monroe and Main has a new blog and you can get inspired by the various topics they discuss. I encourage you to check it out. Here’s several posts that guided me for developing my post today:
Outfit Outtakes–Just so you know…
As the weather was brutal in Michigan (think NO SUN FOR DAYS)….we headed out to a local nursery to get these shots. You would have died laughing at Walt and me moving around the Poinsettias and pricing signs. Yeah, this is what I do to get the shot for you guys!
We have worked with Monroe and Main frequently. Look over all our Monroe and Main reviews.
