I couldn't believe it was warm enough to wear sandals this past weekend. Sandals. In Denver. In January. I was in heaven! There was still a little bit of chill in the air when the wind picked up, but a lightweight jacket took care of that. This is what I love about Denver--the moment I start feeling some winter blues creeping up on me, the weather changes suddenly and gives me a gorgeous spring day in the dead of winter to lift my spirits.
Bright colors have been consistently at the top of my winter love list this year. There's nothing like a jolt of bright pink, yellow, and cobalt blue to breathe some life into the shorter days and frozen nights of mid-winter. Oh, and there's no reason you need a January heat wave to put your brights to work. This look can be made cold-weather-appropriate and totally of-the-moment with some textured tights, some motorcycle boots, a bright scarf, and a leather jacket layered over the cardigan and cargo jacket pictured here.
