Another solution for mega cold weather: a million layers. I wore this for lunch with a dude friend, followed by meeting his lady friend at the Armani store. I had wanted to pair this sweater with the green necklace, and I just kept piling on layers.
Fun fact: one of the shopgirls at Armani assumed these boots were J. Crew! Umm, not exactly…
Here’s what I wore just to run some errands. It was COOOLD out, so I wore minimal jewelry. My hair is still a little wet in these pictures; I normally just let it air dry, but today was so chilly I decided to blow dry it a little to speed up the process. Not the most amazing outfit ever, but I figured I’d sneak in a super casual look before it’s back to work clothes every day.
The Friday before Christmas Break was a celebratory one, in several ways. Perhaps the best part about working in a school is all the snacks! Teachers love their food, and they love to share it more.
I wanted to wear something festive but comfortable since I was going straight from school to the airport. I figured this green cashmere sweater fit the bill: a nod to the holiday colors and nice and toasty for the frigid plane ride. I also kept the jewelry minimal, in case it would set off the metal detector (it’s happened before!). This one big statement necklace had me covered. These jeans are as comfortable as leggings, and I try to wear my biggest shoes rather than pack them.
Do you go all out while holiday dressing (kind of like this) or keep it more subtle?
I was itching to get the tags off this new lacy top, and these old green tuxedo pants seemed like an obvious pairing choice. I like the juxtaposition of the girlishness of the top with the masculinity of the tuxedo stripe. But something about the neutral colors seemed kind of flat, so I brought out my inner Chloe Conspiracy and tossed this bright yellow necklace into the mix. It is kind of unsettling with the rest of the “romantic” vibe, but that’s what makes it personal and fun.
