WIW: winter white and winter blues!

I had a very busy weekend when I had to work so I am late with my WIW but better late than never, right?

Winter white and blue were to repeating theme it looks. A lot of FFBO as well :-)
pic 1 Last time I tried this sweater with cream skinny jeans and was not thrilled with the proportions even though I liked the almost white color scheme. I think I like this short sweater better with baggy trousers instead.

Monogram cream trousers - Banana Republic
Munro Robyn booties

pic 2 - 3 Easy dressing for a busy day - what can be easier than sweater dress and boots? Could not resist to include a picture with my man coat!:-)

Sweater dress - Gap
Black wool coat- Danier
BP cognac boots - NAS

pic 4 Another FFBO and repeat: short dress + skinnies + tall boots. Not really creative but so easy and comfortable!

MK short dress - Macy's
NYDJ ponte skinnies - NAS
Blondo tall boots

pic 5 I like the proportions of this fluid turtleneck with cream skinnies much better than the short sweater. I also seem to be reaching for my scarves more often later after almost a year staying mostly away from them, especially when the rest of the outfit is pretty simple.

Yellow turtleneck - Banana Republic
Cream skinnies - Banana Republic
BP cognac boots - NAS
Silk scarf from Paris

pic 6 Trying this white dress with opaque black tights and flat boots. I would prefer to wear it with dressy low heeled boots (which I don't own yet) and sheer hose (which is too cold for this winter) but oh well! :-)

CK white/black sheath - Winners
Blondo tall boots
Cream turtleneck - Banana Republic

    I love your color block dress in #4.
    The pale blue in #3 is really flattering for you. You should look for that color in the spring stuff coming.

  • Joy replied 5 years ago

    Another fabulous week!  My favorites are 5 and 6...so fresh and bright.

  • Runcarla replied 5 years ago

    Love you in dresses! #4 is my favourite. Love, love, love.

  • Runcarla replied 5 years ago

    Love you in dresses! #4 is my favourite. Love, love, love. Your hair is looking very pretty, BTW.

  • Sveta replied 5 years ago

    Anna, this is interesting about this light blue. I always thought I cannot wear light blue but maybe I just got wrong shades before? Thanks for the validation!
    Joy, I desperately need bright right now: it is a loooooooong winter here...
    Runcarla, thank you for the hair remark. I am never sure about my hair, it is so hard to style so any positive comment is very nice indeed! :-)

  • Inge replied 5 years ago

    I second Anna's pale blue comment, Sveta, and my word, you do rock Winter whites. Love the playful polka dots paired with the dressy trousers in outfit one, and the burgundy footwear is such an excellent touch. I also love the yellow and browns with the white in picture 5, and fun pattern mixing with the scarf and belt. And you always look so elegant in frocks, that white & black sheath is beautiful on you (also: loving your new black bag;-).

  • replied 5 years ago

    4 and 5 are super, and I completely agree with Anna on that light blue in the sweater dress for you.

  • goldenpig replied 5 years ago

    These all look great, love the sunny yellow and the cobalt blue and the polka dots. And 6 is simply stunning! I love you in winter white!

  • krishnidoux replied 5 years ago

    Love your dresses! It's a fantastic way to stay stylish in the cold. 

    My faves out of the bunch: 1-4-6.

    Of course, you look gorgeous in all pics! 

  • Suz replied 5 years ago

    I am with Anna - I love the colour block dress. Fabulous on you. I also think the GAP dress is a real winter and wardrobe perked-upper this year. And the yellow sweater outfit is gorgeous! A great week, Sveta and glad you managed to post it for us! 

  • Aubergine replied 5 years ago

    You look great in all of these! I think my favorite is #2-3, and I also love the sunniness of #5.

  • lyn67 replied 5 years ago

    Great week, Sveta! I loved all, but the sun shines through nr 5(brought a smile to my face) and 6 is glamorous, wow!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago

    We would wait forever for your fabulous outfits post Sveta!

    Once again, you have nailed every look perfectly. But that gorgeous combination in pic #5 just takes my breath away. It's such a rich color combination and the scarf is just gorgeous.

  • Sara L. replied 5 years ago

    I love your dresses - they all look so great on you.  I especially like the black and white dress in #6.  #5 with the scarf is another of my favorites and the red boots in #1 are an unexpected touch.

  • Missey replied 5 years ago

    What a great lot of sweater dresses, each one fits you to a T!  I agree with Anna that the light blue on the dress in #3 is especially lovely on you.  You should look for suiting in that shade!

  • gryffin replied 5 years ago

    Sveta - you are so consistenly elegant!!  Snug, chic, refined!!  So happy for a glimpse of your gorgeous coat!!  You wear winter white wonderfully but my favorite is the black/cobalt dress.  Cobalt just loves you!!  Although the yellow sweater and scarf if totally a fab combination!!  All in all a marvelous week of outfits!!

  • Debbie replied 5 years ago

    You always look like a model to me. Very elegant and polished. You look great in everyone of these but 5 is my favorite. Hope this week is less busy for you.

  • El Cee replied 5 years ago

    All these looks are sensational. I especially love #5. Something about that pop of yellow (in the dead of winter) just makes me smile.

  • Aquamarine replied 5 years ago

    Yay, a Sveta post! They are all great but I am floored by 4 and 5...spectacular!

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    I vote killer week. 

    The proportions in #1 look fabulous, Sveta. Don't worry about it. 

    I'm going with #5 as my fave. It's a very fresh take on skinnies tucked into tall boots so: Killer to the power of killer. 

    And the black coat over the frock in #2 is so elegant I can't stand it. xo

  • Emily replied 5 years ago

    Sveta, you make dressing for work look so exciting!  I love how bold and graphic and unexpected your combinations are.  The bold yellow sweater makes #5 my very favourite.

  • Thistle replied 5 years ago

    You look amazing! All are so fab, but I am especially enamored of #1 and #4.  And I give you HUGE kudos for wearing a dress is this miserable weather.

  • AviaMariah replied 5 years ago

    You look great of course but two thing stood out to me as I quickly clicked through your pictures: your lipstick in #4 is perfect (I've been searching for perfect lipstick so probably why I was drawn to that) and the yellow in #5 looks so beautiful on you!  #5 is my favorite by far and I'm not usually a yellow girl.

  • deb replied 5 years ago

    Beautiful!  #4 & 5 are my favorites but all are excellent.

  • Mona replied 5 years ago

    What a great set of outfits as always but #5 takes the cake! I love love love the cream skinnies with cognac boots and yellow sweater.

  • kkards replied 5 years ago

    they are all great, but i just love #1. love the shorter sweater with the fuller pants! and how you went for the unexpected burgandy boots instead of black!

  • Diana replied 5 years ago

    Wow, Sveta, these are all fantastic.  I love #4 and #6 the best. 

    I think your style lately has been amazing. I see a really strong, coherent style direction - bold, graphic, with a lot of mod influence. I love the strong lines and bold colors together with your height, very model-esque. 

  • replied 5 years ago

    agree with diana - coherent is a spot on observation! i like the blue dresses best, just because that is my favorite color. also, what is the provenance of that cool silver bag?

  • Peri replied 5 years ago

    Wow...really love 4 and 6. And this is saying quite a lot for me because I don't personally care for yellow...but I really like 5 on you as well!

  • Sveta replied 5 years ago

    Sorry I did not get to responding on this thread earlier: there is no downtime at work these days.
    Thank you all so much your lovely comments on my week, I really appreciate it!
    Anna, Inge and Ceit, I am officially on the lookout for more things in this particular shade of light blue!
    Suz, this Gap sweater dress was a very easy winter uniform for me.
    I am so happy that my "bright and sunny" outfit gets so much love here. I need to wear it more often to combat winter gloom! (and of course Angie's K2K rating for it makes me triple  happy :-)  )
    parkmommychic, this silver tote is from Danier, Canadian leather store. I bought it in summer and I don't see them on the website anymore.
    Diana, thank you. Actually this is what I am drawn to stylewise - simple, bold and strong - so it is a nice confirmation I am on the right track! 

  • Lisa replied 5 years ago

    1-Lovely soft outfit here, I really like the all white look.
    2-Great eye by Anna on the light blue, it will be very pretty on you.
    4-I have mostly stayed away from scarves this season so far, yet last year it was all I wore.  I guess I just needed a break from them.
    6-Another soft all white look, just lovely.

  • cuffcat replied 5 years ago

    Love! You look beautiful. You rock all shades of blue. I really like the dresses.

  • Makrame replied 5 years ago

    What a great dress collection!  You look amazing in all of these dresses.  I also love the yellow and white in #5.

  • Karie replied 5 years ago

    Well, I am eating my lunch at work right now but I just had to put it down to log in and say YOU LOOK FANTASTIC! #5 just blows me away it is so gorgeous. I also love the white/black dress with the black tights, and I didn't think I would. If my week was half as well-dressed as yours, I'd be happy!

  • texstyle replied 5 years ago

    All beautiful outfits Sveta but #5 is like WOW! Very nice colors and patterns on you.

  • unfrumped replied 5 years ago

    I just love the proportions in #5. I agree, that sweater is fab with the cream jeans--something about the balance in the shoulder line.
    And the light blue also--brings out the cool in your coloring--perhaps it works more with nearby dark colors like navy or black, as the dress combo has.

  • Lyn D. replied 5 years ago

    2 & 5 are my favs!
    I am glad to hear you have been enjoying your scarves again Sveta- agree that they add that little bit extra when you need it.

  • Inge replied 5 years ago

    I think that's an excellent idea, Sveta:-)

    Might I suggest that you look out for J.Crew jumpers in either "light sky" or "hthr hydrangea", I think those two shades could really work for you.

  • Raisin replied 5 years ago

    These all look great!

    But wait a second....I have to ask, since no one else did.  Is your Christmas tree still up?!  Hehe!  My husband makes fun of me for taking ours down like 2 days after Christmas.  This year I managed to keep it up until Jan 3rd I think, only because DS was begging me to.  I wouldn't be able to wait until the end of January! LOL!

  • Sveta replied 5 years ago

    Thank you!
    Raisin, our Christmas tree came down last Sunday, Jan 19 :-) This is an old tradition because Russian Christmas is on January 7 and then we also have "Old New Year" on Jan 14: we usually keep the tree until then. Very long holiday season indeed! :-)

  • shevia replied 5 years ago

    Gorgeous! I love #1,#4 and #6 and really all of the rest too. 

  • Caro in Oz replied 5 years ago

    Missed this before, just want to say these are all great outfits & your style is fantastic.

  • Vicki replied 5 years ago

    You personify elegance in every photo, Sveta, and it's hard for me to pick a favorite from this group.

    I adore you in yellow and winter white with the scarf from Paris, so this may be in first position, but is being nudged by all of your dresses, because they are stunning, no matter if they are blue or winter white.  You really know how to pick them; I love the lines of them as they flatter your great figure.
