A Look Back at 2012

I only started Christine In Color in October, but it seems like so much has happened already! I’m looking forward to sharing outfits with you in 2013! Here’s a look back at some of my favorite looks of 2012. Thank you for reading!

End of Year Recap


Layer Under

I regularly think about what I can add on top of my outfit–a cardigan, jacket, scarf, etc. But layering underneath is just as interesting, and even better because it’s unexpected. This dress looks cute on it’s own, but there’s so much more visual interest with the chambray underneath plus the vest on top. So the next time you’re getting dressed, think about what you could layer under, not just over 😉

Dress: Old Navy. Similar here // Shirt: J. Crew Factory (old). Similar here // Vest: J. Crew (very old). Similar here // Boots: Corso Como via Nordstrom Rack. Similar here // Bag: Kate Spade. Similar here // Necklace: Stella & Dot (on sale!) // Bracelets: 1, 2 (current version), 3 (old) // Watch: Michael Kors

Tartan + Tweed

This might be my new favorite outfit. I wish I could wear it every day, but I think people would notice. It combines so many things I love–classic, tailored shapes with bold jewelry and fancy shoes 🙂

If you’re new to mixing prints and you’re not sure how to get your feet wet, start with classics like tartan, tweed, leather, lace, denim, etc. Leave the neon stripes with busy florals for your second try 😉

Conveniently the weather has turned colder (wasn’t I just complaining it was 80?) so I could break out my Target tartan blazer. I love the detailing of the orange underside of the collar and the striped lining (which you can’t see because of my shirt). I’ll be bringing this blazer back for a “how to wear 3 ways” series in the future! I haven’t forgotten about my pink shoes from my first post. Those will be returning for their second installment shortly.

Speaking of Target, stay tuned for my next post–great holidays finds from that wonderful store!
