Checkmate

Sweater: c/o Joe Fresh, Jeans: Gap, Boots: Ash, Coat: Zara, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff c/o Eluxe, Sunglasses: ASOS (similar), Necklace: c/o Blush, Bracelet: Stella & Dot, Watch: Michael Kors

 You may notice two shockingly different things about these photos as compared to other posts:

01. NO BLACK! There's not one single bit of black in this outfit. And you all know I am always wearing mostly black. Progress, guys! Progress!

02. MY FACE! Oh, hello. I decided not to hide behind sunnies for most of this post. Truth be told, taking blog photos is oh so much easier when you don't really have to worry what your face looks like. But much like incorporating color, I'm going to make an attempt to go sans sunnies a little more often.

Thanks to Annick for the photos (and most of my photos - I don't always credit her but she takes 95% of my photos these days!) If you haven't checked out her blog yet, be sure to do so! It's pretty adorable!

  6. Aww, you're so freaking cute in these pictures! And pink suits your skintone so well - I'm glad you're wearing some color and forgoing the black! I love the other pops of colors here too - like the red necklace and the green sunnies! Great look Kate, as always! And thanks for the shout-out girl!

  8. I love these photos!! You look fantastic in this red sweater and camel coat. I wish I had seen the red version, I was at Joe yesterday! I end up finding wearing a lot of darks in winter so it's fun to switch it up

  12. That sweater is too cute! And I love the booties. I admire you taking your pictures without your shades! I did that a few weeks ago (only because I forgot mine) and I felt so kind of naked... oh and tired looking :) You look fab!

  13. I was in Joe Fresh today and I loved this sweater. My strict budget meant I could only buy one so I picked up a different one but I definitely loved this one. I'm happy you're showing your pretty face. I agree it's easier to take photos quickly when you don't have to worry about your face and your body looking good in a photo (how does one usually end up looking awkward? At least that happens to me).

    I didn't know Annick takes your photos! She's such a sweetheart!

  16. Black is great and all, but you really do look great in colour, too! This sweater is so cute, and I'd typically go for the black one, but the red is actually a lot more fun.

    I totally love hiding behind my sunglasses too....

    Also, I love your friend's blog and will definitely follow along!

  19. You and I should clearly be friends -- I live in black and always hide behind my sunnies. But seriously, you look beautiful, and pull off color oh-so well!

  20. Love the red sweater and the lack of sunglasses in some of the pictures! I find myself always falling victim to the same traps - but you look so cute here! Also, that metallic Rebecca Minkoff bag is killer ;)
