Winter Whites

At "On Your Feet" Broadway wearing my Celine Nano Crossbody bag in nude, Aldo suede booties, Brandy Melville grey long skirt, Free People "Prima Ballerina" white top and earrings from Brazil. Photography by Francisco Graciano.

Hi there!

I recently had a date night to go out and see "On Your Feet" on Broadway (go see it if you're a Gloria Estefan or any kind of latin music fan, it's wonderful) with Francisco, and we took the opportunity to shoot in the well lit escalator area.

In the dead of winter I love to wear winter whites, since they feel cozy and snow bunny-esque.  This recently purchased top from Free People is one of my favorite winter white tops because it is warm with its long sleeves while still sexy since it's tight and has the shoulder cutouts.  I paired the "prima ballerina" top with my Brandy Melville long grey skirt and nude ankle booties from Aldo and matching nude Celine Nano cross body luggage tote bag. It made for a casual yet dressy and cozy date night outfit to go see a Broadway show and have dinner.  My earrings are from a small accessory store in Brazil.

To complete the outfit I wore my fluffy white Free People "Koda Brushed" scarf and long coat you might remember from a past post, and I also love to wear this scarf as a shawl to wrap up in when I'm feeling chilly indoors.  It's the softest scarf I've ever worn!

Stay warm out there!
