Leather and Layers

Let me start off by saying that I am by no means a fashionista. I wear what I love and if it were up to me, I would constantly be wearing my snowman onesie my parents got me for Christmas last year.  Unfortunately, some people don't think it's appropriate to wear PJ's all the time. So, here I am...

Ahh...there's a chill in the air and it's officially my favorite season. Layer season.

I love layers for a number of reasons:

1. They allow you to mix a variety of colors / patterns / textiles that you wouldn't normally consider doing.
2. They keep you warm during the chilly months.
3. They help hide food and wine babies.

See this photo? You would have no idea that I consumed a bottle glass of cab and a burger shortly before this. Because layers are a girl's best friend.





I lucked out and snagged this vest from my favorite thrift store - Buffalo Exchange. Its really versatile and is super easy to dress up or down. Did you check out Emma's 'Alligator Gold' post? Girlfriend is the queen of Buffalo and she always gets the best pieces.

As for the details, this infinity scarf is my go-to during the winter. I found it at a boutique in Denver and I practically live in it when it's chilly outside. It's soft, cozy, and reminds me a little of a comfy turtleneck. Who's happy that turtlenecks are coming back? Hollllaaaa...

Side note:  See that middle photo? I hear it's called the "I dropped my pencil" pose. Just trying to keep up with the kids these days.


I like to accessorize with a whole lot of arm candy, so I added a few wrap bracelets and my gold watch. This watch is a staple in my wardrobe and you'll rarely see me without it.

My FAVORITE color is mustard. I have olive-colored skin and love wearing a little pop of mustard to compliment it. Stumbled across this beanie at Forever 21 last weekend and was pumped. I love how it is a fashion accessory AND a cover up for a greasy hair day.


Since I'm a shorty, I love me some good heels.  These Levity Alana booties from DSW are a solid transitional heel because of the open toe and the stacked heel allows for a little more support. They're super comfortable!  I'm serious.



Here's to keeping warm and not taking yourselves too seriously.

Cheers!
