Winter layers



First outfit post of 2014! A deep freeze has arrived over the Midwest. It’s dangerously cold for the next few days (talking about 10 degrees below zero). Living in a cold climate, layering is key. Instead of grabbing the warmest jacket in the closet, sometimes, I like to layer several of my lighter jackets to get the same warmth. Two thin layers can be warmer yet lighter than one thick layer. Layering is also a great way to get more wear out of your fall jackets. For this outfit, I wore a long sleeve shirt as my base layer then a sweater, a puffer vest and top it off with my parka. It was sufficient enough for 25-degree weather we had yesterday. Hope you all have a great week and stay warm!

 

What I am wearing: 
Sweater: GAP (this year's version
Denim: J.Brand leggings - size 25 
Puffer Vest: A&F *old* (buy similar here
Jacket: ASOS (this year's version)

Love this layered look! I'm moving to Syracuse from Miami this year so I'll def be looking to you for more winter options! I'm so nervous about the cold... I've never even seen snow!

I really like the silver hardware lining on your MK Hamilton! It's my first time seeing it, and I have to say, I like it a lot more than the original. The weather will be dropping in the city tonight, so I'm really not looking forward to heading to work tomorrow morning, but I have to agree. Layering is key, and does a lot better job at keeping you warm. Hope you had a great weekend Sydney and Happy New Year! :)
