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


The Blue Blazer

I grabbed this school boy blazer over the fall, and then couldn’t figure out what to wear it with. (You know my rule of 3). I thought about taking it back, then I realized it was final sale (oops). I wore it once with a khaki suit dress and it looked nice, but I knew I could do better. As it turns out, I can’t. But Kendi Everyday can! I don’t usually see looks on other bloggers that I want to exactly duplicate, but when I saw her post last week in a look-alike blazer, I thought, I have to steal that! Thanks, Kendi 🙂





As a side note, something about having a blue blazer makes me think of that episode of Friends where Joey works as a docent at the museum and tries to save Ross a seat at his table at lunch and Ross shuts him down because people in white coats sit together and people with blue blazers sit together. Anyone else? Just me? Cool.

Return of the Pink Heels

Do you remember these fab pink heels I introduced in my first post? Now I’m showing you a second way to wear them! I opted for a silk blouse, cuffed jeans (so I don’t steal focus), and pops of pink and gold accessories.

I’ll bring these back for a third round in the near future, and I’ve promised to bring back the tartan blazer from this post too, so check back 🙂

A Checkered Present

Happy Monday, all! I’m really enjoying layering weather. This button down or sweater alone would have been a fine outfit, but kind of boring. When you combine them, you suddenly get an interesting color combination. If it had been a little cooler, I would have gone a step further with a blazer. Each layer you add makes the look more polished. I opted for a rose gold necklace and some bracelets to step up my cozy casual weekend attire.

Don’t forget today is the LAST DAY to enter the Essie giveaway from Sunday’s post! Winner will be announced tomorrow!
