Layer it On

patternmixing

I know the general consensus is pretty much that the colder it gets, the less it really matters what you're wearing as long as you're warm. But I also know that most of us "fashionistas" also want to look good regardless of the situation. So when does one cross the line from fashionable to purely functional?

In an effort to be warm, dress in layers and look interesting ('cause you know me, I pretty much have never met a pattern I haven't wanted to mix with another), am I edging precariously into the territory of the person who Wears.All.Things?

Ah well. If nothing else, just consider me an urban lumberjack.

  1. I think being a person who wears all things works for you because you've got sass and that innate sense of style (and apparently the ability to inspire alliteration). You go with your pattern-mixed self!

  2. Love this - and so wishing it was cooler here so I could re-create this myself!

    1. I admit, it IS super-warm! I take back everything bad I've been saying for years about vests.

  6. I find that what people wear in the winter depends a lot on where they live and their commute to work... What's your commute like?

    1. Days when I work from home = non-existent. But most days, I'm outside for as long as it takes for me to walk from the parked car into the office building. So def not the days when I was trudging outside through slush and grime and had to be covered from head-to-toe!

    1. I literally just got myself a few packs of boot socks I could wear with ankle boots - my shortie ankle boots don't cut it when it gets real cold!
