Cozy Winter Neutrals

Carolina Santos Read

In my Vince Camuto Moto boots (now on sale!) JCrew matchstick dark denim skinnies, and Free People "We The Free Sheila Hacci" knit top.  Shot in Philadelphia by Francisco Graciano.

Hi there!

On a recent trip to Philadelphia, PA Francisco and I decided to shoot my new Free People "We The Free Sheila Hacci" top which I styled with my JCrew dark wash denim matchstick skinny jeans, white lace tank, Vince Camuto biker boots and black beanie for an effortless comfortable and slightly edgy yet cool look. 

What I love about the color and draping on this grey knit is how easy to wear it is while overall maintaining an effortless chic. We all need that wardrobe piece that is cozy and you feel good in but don't want to forego style. Here is that perfect piece!

Outfit details

Here you can see a great close-up shot of the top. I even matched my nail polish (a sparkly grey from Urban Outfitters) to the top! Check out the photo below for my sunglasses and nail polish. 

Here I am cheesing with my new Urban Outfitters sparkly grey nail polish and Zara red sunnies I bought last fall while shopping in São Paulo" with my cousin.  I love the fun pop of color they add to an outfit, and we couldn't resist another shot in the beautiful historic city of Philadelphia!
