Denim, White, and Plaid

Denim, White, and Plaid 1

The High Museum of Art, where these pictures were taken, is one of my favorite things about Atlanta. I love the architecture, the environment, the feel of the space…I need to make a point to go more often because just being there makes me feel happy and inspired.

Denim, White, and Plaid 3

I’m cracking up here because the cutest little boy came “flying” by in a Superman cape. Adorable!

Side note: The people whom I’m guessing were the child’s grandparents were bundled up in sweaters and coats, like me, but the tiny flying man was in short-sleeves. It’s a little trek from parking to the museum entrance, so I was kind of perturbed that bitty Super didn’t have anything over his tee. It was 10 degrees below zero (possibly a slight exaggeration, but it was freezing by Atlanta standards), and I was shivering in all my layers, like, “Please hurry up and take these pics so I can 1) button my coat all the way up, and 2) run inside.” Maybe capes are warmer. And flying probably does generate more heat that walking. And clearly the child has superpowers. Maybe I was worried for nothing 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by (and for the compliment :-)), Jillian! I think I’m wearing more white this winter than I did all last summer.

  2. I love, love, love that coat!

  3. That coat is HOT! I love it!

  4. I really love this entire look but the coat really sets it off! Great job. I have been wanting to explore wearing white in Winter but haven’t taken the plunge yet. You nailed it though. 🙂

    • Joy and Sunshine says:

      Thank you! I had to think long and hard about buying that coat, but I’m glad I did. Also, with your creativity and style, I know you’ll find a cool way to rock white in winter. Can’t wait to see it 🙂

  5. I love wearing white all year round.
    It makes a great back drop and allows other items to stand out.
    That plaid trench is fantastic!

      Thank you, Laura! I definitely don’t think white should be relegated to summer only! I wonder where that old fashion “rule” even originated…
