During the winter months it’s easy to get stuck wearing muted or neutral colors. This month’s partnering with Dad’s Primitive Workbench (DPW) is all about showing ways to bring color into your life during this season.

This first look is a flounce-sleeve dress that will look gorgeous in the springtime too. For now I layered underneath with a fitted black turtleneck. I wanted to jazz it up some more with black knee highs to tie in the two dark colors and then a printed snakeskin bootie to coordinate with the necklace (necklace, shoes, socks, and turtleneck not found in store).

I used a thin scarf (not in the store) as a belt to help cinch in the dress. I decided to add black in this look because being fair-skinned the blush color easily washes me out.  When I add black it helps the color stand out more.

This sweater is just delightful! I love that it’s like a bright navy. I paired it with my black denim and burgundy rain booties. I liked the idea of incorporating two primary-type colors together.

DPW had my favorite print in earring form so I paired them with my coordinating belt. I wear this belt a lot in my posts to show how easy it is to wear the print with so many different things. These earrings were perfect because they were so lightweight but added so much value to the outfit.

This army green jumper is to die for. It feels like suede and adds a lush texture to any look. I continued to pair it with my black turtleneck to show an easy way to showcase this special piece. I continued to wear it with the snakeskin booties to add more interest to the look.

I loved adding this multi-colored striped button-down with this jumper. It really brightens it up and creates a fun, cheerful look!

You could also tie the shirt in a knot if you wanted to create a different vibe.

These faux leather earrings were the perfect pairing to bring in more variety (necklace not in DPW).

Another way you could incorporate two colors and style two pieces differently is by layering with the bright navy sweater from earlier. These two cool colors are an unexpected pair and I love them together.

I simply tucked the bottom of the sweater through the top of the neckline and pulled it through (just like when I was a kid playing with my clothing in new ways to look like I had on a bra. 😆 I had quite the imagination).

I felt the ivory earring was just the right touch to complete the look without taking away from the colors.

Are you not a Marietta, Ohio local shopper? That’s okay! DPW now offers their product online now🙌🏻 Don’t forget you can use shopping code: RANDOMOSITY740 for 10% off on top of the boutique promo buy one get one 1/2 off in stores.

Happy New Year!! It’s funny how I keep saying, “winter is right around the corner” yet I find myself wondering if it truly is close-by 😆. In all reality we know how the weather can quickly change from 60 degrees to 30 degrees in less than 24 hours.

My daughter loves playing outside and I hate being cold. I’ve given myself a goal to be outdoors more with her this winter. That means I need to gear up on keeping my booty warm! I’ve comprised a list of what I think is going to help me out in the accessory department. And mommies, I’ve made it easy for you to add these necessities by simply clicking the pic for a direct- link.

EARMUFFS

Anytime I try to wear the classic earmuffs with the adjustable band they never stay on my ears well. I’ve also tried the infinity headband style but honestly, I don’t like the way they look on me. I plan on trying these suckers out and they offer them in different colors.

SNOW GLOVES

I hate bulky snow gloves because it kills my snowball making game. 😂 I also love taking videos outside of my family sleigh-riding so these gloves will make it possible since they work on touch-screen phones!

FLEECE-LINED TIGHTS

I found this style recently and can’t wait to order them. Look at that fleece! I own a pair of tights similar to these but these look like game changers! They come in so many different colors too. I love being able to still wear dresses and skirts in the winter and these will make it more bearable to continue wearing them. Plus these are great to layer underneath snow gear!

FAUX-FUR SCARF

Some of you may not like the faux-fur look. However, these are some of the coziest and warmest accessories you can wear around your neck. The pull-through style keeps it intact and easier to tuck into your jacket.

FLEECE-LINED SOCKS

Basically, you can’t have enough fleece in the winter when it comes to keeping warm. I prefer knee-high socks because they work well with boots. These have great neutrals that will work well with everything.

So, here’s to being prepared for those frigid days that will soon be upon us. Remember, if you still need to load up on some of these products, click on the image to shop my affiliate link👍🏻

Your Faithful (always cold) Dreamer,
