Cold

As a Kansan I am pretty well acquainted with the concept of layering. Our weather is quite unpredictable and extremely varied. Last week it was in the 60′s, this week we had what is being coined as, ‘The Blizzard of Oz’. I’m realizing while my wardrobe has many layering pieces, there aren’t many long sleeved items or sweaters to work with. So…what I do have that can be layered must be combined to create a bizarre mixture of color and pattern. It’s been fun to create outfits I never would have dreamed up otherwise all for the sake of staying warm! And…just a warning…there is supposed to be MORE snow headed our way. So stranger combos may be to come!

And, what’s that on top of my head, you say? Well, it’s a top knot with a polka dot silk scarf wrapped around it! (previously seen worn a completely different way, here.)

Outfit Breakdown: Sweater, necklace, silk scarf, and bracelet: thrifted; polka dot shirt, Burlington $9; faux leather leggings, Forever 21 $19; violet Hunter boots, gift!

  5. Nice layering, my dear!
    Trust me, the weather in Romania is pretty much the same…If I don’t see any signs of Spring soon, I”ll become suicidal :) (just kidding).
    I love the polka dot print and the color of the shirt! And you look extremely cute, as always!

    LOL Blizzard of Oz. They always come up with silly names, like here in Canada ..snowmagedden. And really, its never THAT bad. I think the news just likes drama LOL. Anyways, I love this adorable outfit. I really need to get me a pair of Hunter boots! xo

  8. I have definitely been forced to learn better (and perhaps stranger) layering techniques writing a fashion blog and living in a snowy place! I love your leggings I have been looking for a pair like this forever! Hope you’re having a great start to your week!
