Is anyone familiar with the awesome Rhode Island brand Kiel James Patrick? It's one of my all time favorites, and I've been feeling inspired lately by Sarah's simple, classic and preppy style. They have the cutest bracelets and scalloped oxfords - all made in America!
I loved how bright and cheery her winter ice skating look was that she recently posted on her blog, Classy Girls Wear Pearls. No matter the weather, occasion or time of day she knows how to doll any outfit up. I love it! So, my goal was to recreate this look for you using similar pieces to switch it up and save money, but also take you from day to night.
Day: Pile on the layers! Sarah placed a collared shirt + a heavy v neck sweater + pea coat to keep her warm while enjoying the day outside. This is an easy tip to remember in the cold. It never hurts to add more layers because you can always take some off as the day progresses.
Night: Now, take it off! I paired the sweater and jacket with a jewel embellished collar to kick it up a notch for night. You can easily take off your sweater (even in the car, if necessary) before heading out for the night to show off your fancy blouse underneath. Last, I switched up the heavy duty snow boots to a taller riding boot. This still keeps your feet warm and cozy but dresses it up a bit.
Have you heard of Kiel James Patrick before? If so, what's your favorite piece? Mine are the beautiful scalloped oxfords.
