While I love that we have all of the season here in North Carolina, I have a love/hate relationship with our weather. The past few days it has been absolutely beautiful here. I mean 70 degrees, warm wind, and sunny. While I have loved the warmth, it is just going to be that much harder when it inevitably gets cold again. However, I am trying to enjoy this glimpse of spring while I can!
Hello all! You might have noticed that I’ve been wearing a lot of white lately and I have definitely been wearing it more lately, but that is because it is so easy to wear with winter colors! The white, I think, really brightens up those jewel tones, which is always nice when it is dark outside.
As you have probably been doing as well, all I have been wearing lately is layers and layers as I try to keep warm. I always get questions about layering and I think the key is having a couple basic pieces or styles that you can always turn to so you start your outfit off right. So here are my 4 keys that help me layer with every outfit
Hello all! So my biggest struggle in the winter is staying warm while also staying cute. My immediate reaction is to throw on the biggest sweater in my closet, some boots, and be done. But that gets boring really quickly and is definitely not work appropriate.
Layering with different color combinations and textures is one of my favorite things, but I also love layering with textures. This outfit was basically my layered textured dream. First, my shoes are suede…one word about these shoes. I got them for Christmas and they are weather proof! I am so obsessed with them because I can wear them for any occasion and they are so comfortable.
One of the hardest things about having a fashion blog is dealing with winter. First of all your time to take photos is seriously affected by light. During the summer, I normally take pictures after work and it is not a problem at all. In the winter though, I have to set out specific time early in the morning or on the weekend so there is enough light.
As much as I love layering, there are some pitfalls that I like to avoid. The first one is that I don’t want to look like the Michelin man and not be able to move my arms. The other one is that I still want to feel cute and feminine, while also staying warm. With a wool mini-skirt and a thick but girly sweater are the perfect way to avoid these issues.
We are definitely getting winter over here on the east coast, which has meant lots of layering for me. Now I love layering with patterns, but I also love layering with colors. Layering is such a great way to experiment with different color combinations or add a little something extra to an otherwise quiet outfit.
