The outdated rule of no white after Labor Day is such a thing of the past.  In fact, winter is the perfect time to wear clothes as white as snow.  With the temperatures dropping, the cool and fresh tones of winter white looks so appealing and cozy long after the summer sets.  As a advocate for rocking the neutral shade year-round, I love to keep whites on high rotation in winter to counter all the black and warmer tones we're "expected" to wear when the weather breaks.  So how do you pull of an all-white look for winter? The key to wearing white throughout the cooler months is to not try and match shades at all costs -- instead focus on choosing rich fabrics with lots of texture and plush to keep the look balanced and season appropriate.  When I wear white, most often I opt for a monochrome outfit that instantly elongates my look while delivering a crisp finish.  For this fit, I paired my new H&M Boucle Coat over a white tank and fitted trouser for a simple Sunday style number.  One thing I always aim for in styling is mixing textures, so I added my fringe clutch from BagJunkie and Jimmy Choo Anouk nude patent leather pumps to finish off my look.  So keep it simple, but always always make your look significant and remember to rock white 365.  

Shop this look below and leave me comments on how you style white for winter.  I'd love to hear your tips and tricks!

There is no color quite as fresh, crisp and refreshing as the color white, so it's on constant repeat in my fall wardrobe.  Rocking all white results in an exceptionally stylish, high impact look that's pretty easy to accomplish from season to season.  As many of you know, I'm not one to incorporate a lot of color in my wardrobe and tend to stray away from brights.  Well, my boyfriend pushed me into the color wheel buying me this gorgeous orange Gucci handbag for my birthday this past November.  With little hesitation, I knew the perfect pallet for this stunner and opted for an all white look to give me that pop of color effect.  To add another dash of color, I found these adorable sunnies at the beauty supply store for $5.00 -- what a steal right?  Finishing off my fit, I threw on my old-faithful Jimmy Choo nude pumps for the perfect autumn day look.  So yes, I finally stepped outside my neutral box and replaced what would have been a black handbag with this amazing orange one.  I guess orange is the new black!!

The new year is here and the resolutions are set.  For me, becoming more consistent with my beauty and health regimen is a top focus for me in 2016. Eating right, exercising more and simply looking and feeling my best this year is amongst my top 10 resolutions.  As women, we all know that good hair days make us feel like we can take over the world. Lately, I have been faithfully rocking my Kerri Alston clip in extensions for some added fullness, length and a little splash of color. With clip ins, 100% of my natural hair is exposed so it's extremely critical for me to keep my hair healthy and hydrated at all times.

Moving from fall to winter is so tough on my hair, so transitioning from warmer weather to those cold brisk days means switching up the hair care routine.  On the hunt for a new winterized line for my increasingly dryer winter hair, my recent introduction to the Alterna Haircare line couldn't be better timing. When the Alterna Team invited me to try the line for myself, I was excited and ready for some hair play. The minute I read about this line I was intrigued by their Pure, Proven and Professional approach to hair care.  All of their products are formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates or synthetic color.  So what do you get when you take some of the best ingredients for thick, luscious, healthy hair and put them together to create a forward thinking, innovative haircare line? You get Alterna Haircare.
