I’ve always worn dresses with tights during the colder months. But lately, I’ve been very into layering turtlenecks underneath as well. It’s the perfect way to make a summery dress even more wearable in winter! Plus, it gives off an ever-so-slightly retro vibe, which I totally dig. :)
Yesterday we had another snowfall, and despite the fact I’m so over snow in general and am ready for spring, it was quite beautiful and very peaceful. Casey and I ventured out in it for a quick minute to grab some coffee, and the sweet man that he is, took these photos so that I could share this outfit with you guys. (I wore it out to dinner last night but seeing that it was dark I couldn’t capture it properly.)
Hey guys, happy Monday! Sorry for the light posting last week. :/ Between fashion week and it being bitterly cold out, I fell behind with documenting my outfits, so sorry about that! Anyway, things are back to normal now and I think it’s supposed to be a tad warmer this week (a very balmy 40 degrees on Wednesday) which is good news in terms of taking photos outside. :)
I love doing surprise pattern layering, like in this case where I wore a wintery floral print blazer under this bold, large scale plaid jacket and you would never know unless I removed my coat. It’s almost like two different outfits in one!
First off, I want to thank you guys for your comments on my previous post. They were so helpful and insightful and actually inspired this outfit! I’ve been thinking about the month long remix challenge a lot this week and what you guys wrote got me thinking about basing outfits around more classic pieces, case in point, these slim black pants. As much as I love my slouchy boyfriend jeans, I know that most people can’t wear them to work and mostly just wear them around the house or on the weekend. So that said, I decided to pull my favorite black cigarette pants out of my closet and create an outfit around them.
I could have chosen to put on a silky shirt and a blazer, but it felt a bit too buttoned up for me on this particular day, so instead I grabbed my trusty chambray button down, which helped bring a slightly more casual feel to the look, and my new favorite scarf. I played off the colors in the scarf to help me decide on which jacket, hat and bag to wear and before I knew it, I was full dressed!
P.S. To be honest with you, I didn’t actually wear these shoes out in this crazy weather. I actually wore these short little UGG boots, but these heels are what I would wear if there wasn’t ice and snow on the ground. :)
Yay! I figured out how to fix my video! Give it a listen if you have a minute and let me know your thoughts in the comments! xo
P.S. If you don’t have time to watch right now, the basic questions I am asking in the video are:
Would you guys be into doing a month long remix challenge with me in March?
If so, what kinds of styling would you like to see?
Would you want to integrate themes (such as wearing stripes for a week or incorporating red somehow)?
Also, please let me know what you guys do for a living. Do you guys go to a corporate job or are you self-employed? Does your office require suits or can you wear casual attire? I would love to know so that this remix challenge can be helpful as well as fun. :)
Alright guys, I’ll check back soon to see what you guys think!
So I had made a short video (teaser content and photo above) that I hope to share with you a little later on today, but for some reason right now I can’t seem to get the customized thumbnail to show up when I embed it from YouTube into WordPress. Do you guys know how to fix that? If so, please leave a comment below. :)
Anyway, it should be figured out shortly, in which case I will send out a tweet letting you know when it’s live on here, but until then, I hope you all have a happy and productive day. Stay warm! xo
