With the crazy weather we have been having, I put together an outfit that layers some of my favorite warm-weather items with a few of my best cold-weather pieces. It’s an outfit ideal for the days when it’s warm in the afternoon, but the morning and evening are still kind of chilly. The focus for me is 100% on layers. And coffee.
It seems like the weather has been a little wild all over the U.S. this winter. Growing up in Colorado, I got used to layering because you knew that even though it was 15 degrees in the morning…it would be sunny and 70 by 2pm. When I moved to the Northeast, the seasons became a little more predictable. Winter = Cold. Like, REALLY cold. Well, for the last couple years the winters have been much less predictable. One day its 70 and the next it’s 22, so versatility and layers are back at the top of my game.
This outfit layers for two different types of weather. My long winter coat has me covered (literally) for the colder parts of the day and the layers underneath have me set for the warm, sunnier hours.
Underneath my favorite winter coat, I wore one of my favorite Reformation dresses, that I got from their last sale, as a shirt (similar here.) I took advantage of the button front and tied it at the bottom to make it into a shirt. I wanted to make the dress work because the off-the-shoulder neckline highlights one of my favorite necklaces. My shoes are Kelsey Dagger Mules and they are my absolute favorite right now, I’ve been super excited to break them out and mak them my go-to shoes for spring. The leather is so soft that they were comfortable right out of the box AND they come up high enough on your foot to stay on during longer walks. To bring things back to being super casual and easy, I wore my Trashed Freebirds from OneTeaspoon (similar here.)
