white winter layers

skirt, joe fresh; blouse, mexx outlet; sweater, club monaco; teacup, winners.

since it's too cold now to take outfit photos outside i have resorted to standing on a stool to avoid getting my bed in the pictures... tiny apartment woes, hehe.

wintertime is generally a time for dark colours but sometimes you just don't feel like blending in with your dreary surroundings - that's why i really like the idea of wearing white in winter too, especially on depressingly overcast days. to keep it from being too saccharine (it's not christmas yet and i am not ready to start dressing festive) i paired this layered white outfit in beautifully textured rumpled silk, linen and mohair with my spiked choker, black tights and red orange lip stain (which i will review later on my tumblr). with a below-the-knee coat i don't need to worry that sitting down will stain my skirt so i'm looking forward to wearing more bright clothing this winter.
