Where’s Winter?

This winter has an identity crisis. With bleak 30-degree mornings turning into sunny 60-degree afternoons, it can be difficult to figure out whether to bundle up or dress light. I have been wearing layered outfits so that I can be comfortable in any temperature.

Here are my bipolar winter essentials:

The Floppy Hat.

It not only keeps my head warm and protects my hair from cold winds, but it also shades my eyes from the sun. Hats are also an inexpensive and fun way to update outfits and disguise evil bad hair days.

The Faux Fur Vest.

Worn under a coat, it’s insulation against cold temps. Worn alone, it’s a hot statement piece. It has become part of my indoor/outdoor uniform.

The Over-The-Knee Boot.

Tall boots are the ultimate way to pump up the volume on any outfit and they’ve allowed me to wear dresses without fear that my legs would be cold. I especially like these Chinese Laundry over-the-knee boots because of their wedged heel. I love high heels, but wedges are way more comfortable for my day-to-day lifestyle.

Neutral Territory

This fall, I’ve been completely obsessed with neutrals. I’ve even gone so far as to paint the yellow walls in my room gray. Shades of brown, black, gray, and white give me a sense of calm in an otherwise hectic life.

Brown and beige have taken over my fall wardrobe choices.

This mini sweater dress is the perfect weekend style solution. Opaque tights are vital for chilly fall temps.

What I Wore

  • Camel wool trench coat: New York & Co.
  • Belted sweater dress and tights: gift from mom
  • Boots: Steve Madden
  • LV Speedy

I love my new walls! (Silver Sateen, Behr)
