Ageless Style: Winter White With a Splash of Periwinkle





I am here with the ladies of Ageless Style for our monthly link-up, every third Thursday of the month.  This months periwinkle color prompt was inspired by Pantones color of the year, Very Peri.  Although Very Peri has a distinct violet red undertone, Periwinkle has a border spectrum of blue and violet hues.  I decided to use my Periwinkle blazer as my pop of color in a winter white outfit.  I love how this combination came together.  I am a big fan of monochromatic looks but this time I decided to add a twist of soft color with the blazer, and then the booties are navy suede staying in the same blue family.  I kept my jewelry really soft and subtle with winter whites, sliver and soft pastels beads in my bracelet.  With the freshly fallen snow as a a backdrop the pictures came out even better than I could have imagined.  I recently wore this exact outfit to work.  People always wonder how I can wear white as a prekindergarten teacher, but I honestly don't ever worry about it much.  Bleach is my best friend and I've had these white jeans for YEARS!   


This blazer has become a favorite of mine since buying it in early fall  and you can see how I've styled it here in three different ways.  One of my goals in the fall was to add more blazers to my wardrobe because they pair so well with jeans, dress pants, and dresses.  I also like how in the spring and summer they can easily be substituted for a coat and they instantly dress an outfit up.  









Be sure to check out all the Ageless Style ladies and how they interpreted this prompt for more ideas, and be sure to link-up with us below.  Thank you for stopping by and this Thursday post is instead of my weekly Monday, Jan. 24th post.  See you the following Monday!

  1. I love your blazer and I totally give you props for wearing white while teaching preschool. I don't think I ever did... though with all the bleach we used to clean I might have been better off as I ruined many a navy or black pants by getting a bit of overspray on them!

  2. Lucky you to have found something in this color. I did not have as much luck. You are styling periwinkle in my favorite color combo: white! I love the way this color looks with white. That is such a cute blazer.

    1. I was very panicked when I first heard the prompt but luckily I have this one piece in my closet. LOL. Although it's not a color I gravitate to, I do love it and have worn this blazer a ton.

  4. Wow! Fantastic with the snow backdrop! I love that picture of you nearly kneeling: gorgeous. I love a white column under a cardigan/blazer... and this is just a beautiful look.

  5. I've always liked periwinkle, and I'm happy to see the very peri color that's trending this year. Your blazer is truly a periwinkle color, not just a shade of purple. It looks wonderful with the column of white.

  8. What a pretty photo shoot. I am so jealous of your snow. I liked posing by the water fountain but posing in the snow would be so much better. Beautiful periwinkle blazer. Love it with the white monochromatic look underneath. Didn't realize you were a prekinder teacher...I thought you were an administrator. Just coming off a week of subbing in kinder and I am exhausted. My hat goes off to you!!

    1. Wow! Do you sub regularly? I do both. So I teach 70% of the time in PreK and 30% of my time is admin duties. It's the way they do things here for vice-principals (assistant principals) and it's a bit of a double duty thing but its how it is. I do love the snow but it gets old right around the end of February and we usually have it around until May (too long).

  9. That blue blazer looks lovely on you! I really like how it pops with the monochrome white outfit :) I am impressed you can wear so much white near kids, haha! With my two boys even one white piece never stays white long, never mind a double white outfit, ha!

    Hope that you are having a great weekend :)

  17. Look at that winter wonderland! That is how it looks here after 1 day of ice and 2 days of snow! I don't have this periwinkle color in my closet, but it is so pretty. I really love it against the all white underneath.
