In an iconoclastic move, I ditched rich red and forest green in favor of bright coral with fuchsia accents, the Jennifer Behr headband and Sarah Flint flats, in the days leading up to the holiday. Admittedly this is primarily because of the coral boiled wool coat. My outerwear pick of the year has dictated the direction of my outfits.
I rediscovered my fondness for playing with color, especially bright hues. There is something to be said about wearing contrasting, yet not clashing, colors. In the case of this outfit, I matched my Jennifer Behr headband to my flats and lip color and my sweater to my coat. The monogram in the sweater matches the blue jeans. The colors of each pair contrast and complement each other.
the Jennifer Behr headband
I had my eye on this Jennifer Behr headband since the moment I spotted it in the online store. The color is deliciously saturated. The fabric is subtle ribbed silk faille. The triple rosette detail makes me even taller. What is not to love?
A bonus? Jennifer Behr is a woman owned small business. Every team member I have come in contact with the brand is a woman. The company is sustainability-minded. There is no excess of Jennifer Behr headbands and turbans and jewelry; only as much ordered is produced with the year end inventory at a minimum.
the Sarah Flint flats
Regular readers might recognize that these are the second pair of Sarah Flint Natalie flats to show up on the blog. These are not the last time you will see them either. First time Sarah Flint shoppers can save 50 dollars with the code SARAHFLINT-BALU at checkout.
Size-wise, I advise to go up a half size in leather and suede Natalie flats and go up a full size in the velvet Natalie flats. The flats run small; I cannot emphasize that enough.
