MOUNTAIN TOWN STYLE

Day 2 in the mountains and it's a whopping 6, yes, 6 degrees!

Ya'll know I'm a caribbean gyal. But Telluride, CO is one of my favorite places on earth. BIG TINGS A GWAN in this small mountain town! For now, a very basic outfit worn for window shopping.

No big deal. Just a lot of snow.

The most basic thing to wear, of course - jeans and a sweater. The trick to looking pulled up- basics with fun lines and asymmetry, like this OAK sweater.  Check out how the sweater has a "tail" and is cropped in the front!

A Christmas tree made of skis.

Adorable, no?

Personal Motto: Don't "save" your clothes or shoes for another occasion! Wear them while you can.

Decided to wear pony hair and suede boots... and basically NOT care if they get damaged by the snow. A girl's gotta' live. Plus, the more beat up these get, the better they'll look. 

Socks inspired by the locale. 

Tomorrow, a post about how to minimally pack for a mountain trip!

MARBLED DESERT PRINT MIX

Looking at these elements, I say, surely this it TOO much. But is it really?

Awwwweeee shucks! Makin' it work!

Can we please talk about this jacket? Lawdamercy, when I laid eyes on this thing at a sample sale, my eyes welled up with tears of joy and potential. Baby, this thing is all kinds of hyphenated words that I love:  over-sized, moto-ish, tie-dyed, 80's-esque. 

What you're seeing here is: dress under top. 

All colors in this desert, sand-stone family, just mixing together like nobody's business.

PS: went to shoot the lay down for this outfit,  Mr. @arrowtheheeler had other ideas. 

What say you -into the mix?
