Outfit: Layers



Mustang Alora boots

Minus 5 outside this morning people. Fun times. Fortunately I had layered up accordingly. Under the sweater you see here is a thermal top and under that, a vest. Those are not tights you see on my legs, they are over the knee socks. I have thick tights on underneath them. The scarf was designated as part of my outfit so that stayed on all day. And I was STILL cold to start with this morning.


Anyway, other than layering up this was an attempt to pair this skirt with something other than pink and black. I took a good look at the pattern last week and decided to pick out the grey and blue elements of it today. I think it would have worked better if I wasn’t so bundled up though. And if this sweater wasn’t a bit big now, forcing me to add the belt for a bit of shape. Next time: green and purple. Maybe.


Last night I went to the gym for step class, then cleaned the bathroom and vacced when I got back. Just an ever-exciting Tuesday night at my house.

  1. I WANT THAT BELT! So cute. And it's hard to keep your personal style while staying warm but you do it well

  2. Thank you! And I got this belt half price on ASOS a couple of years ago. Not sure whether they still do them but there's bound to be something similar on eBay. It's not leather, none of the Obi belts I have are.
