Winter Layers: A Fashion Post

Ideas for Layering in the WinterWinter layers are a must in my book. They are cozy, comfortable and trendy to boot. I’m all about throwing on a base layer, a sweater, a vest, and even a scarf to stay warm when needed or just as an expression of style. And then top it off with some fun elbow patches. I’m done.

I tend to get hot pretty frequently. The running joke in my office is that if people are freezing, my name is all over the issue with the thermostat. Oops! :-/ So, not only do layers keep this southerner nice and toasty in the winter, but when I get overheated inside, I can shed a layer or two and still be good to go.

Stacks on Stacks of Bracelets


Winter Layers, elbow patches, and Vest

Winter Layers and Stacks of braceletsWhat I love about this outfit is that it’s comfortable but can also be dressed up by throwing some extra bling on with it. Every time I wear the bracelet I layered on at the bottom, it’s a total show stealer. Everyone comments on it. The truth is I got it for Christmas and don’t even know where it’s from. I just told my mom to get a knock off from the bracelet I liked on my Pinterest boards!  It’s just SO sparkly, chunky and FUN!

Frye Boots with Skinny Jeans

Comfy Layered Look

The Frye Boots as many of you remember are one of the things I asked for for my birthday! I’m so thankful the hubs got them for me! And, I really can’t say enough about that Bella Dahl shirt. My friend, Erin, convinced me to buy it at Nordstrom Rack for around $50 or $60 and man, am I glad I did! I wear it at least once a week and it’s so soft and worn in feeling. Adore! The story being the J. Crew vest is that I got a great deal on it at one of their fashion events in our local Birmingham store. I wear it once a week as well. Total closet staple!

Now, you tell me, what’s your favorite way to layer something or what’s your go-to winter look?

    If I could wear boots year round, I would! The only thing better is a pair of killer stilettos!

    I suck at layers, I always think they make me look fluffier.
