So You’re Just Gonna Wear One Coat This Winter, That’s Dumb!

We basically went all Q4 of 2015 laughing at Winter. We bragged about how much of a punk she was for not showing up (on time) on December 21st. I’m sure of few of you all were sporting shorts and flip-flops on Christmas Day. But guess what she did?

Showed all the way up! Polar vortex is real and I won’t say I hate her (or maybe it’s a him) but it’s been a real struggle this Winter trying to be cute and go outside and be warm.

Confession:

I have personal summers (read: hot flashes). Often! Even in the Winter. Actually, more often in the Winter. Don’t you dare judge me, I’m 39 and I have officially told myself that this is normal and there’s nothing anyone can say to convince me otherwise. So while I really want to take part in wearing faux furs that make us big girls look like Smokey The Bear…the way my sweat is set up…yea no! Instead, I layer up!

I got this sleeveless vest back in the Fall, oh and it’s still available here. I totally slept on it’s fierceness though. And I should have bought all the colors available. I wore it a few times by itself but I never realized how amazingly warm this baby was until I paired it under my leather jacket. I think what I love the most about layering is that the vest can be a part of my overall look or I can take everything off.

But there was a time that layering was a foreign idea for me, so here’s a few tips before you go outside in ALL of your winter coats.

1. Make a statement with your scarfs. 2. Play with contrasting lengths. 3. Use a bright piece as your core. 4. Break up your black with a color. 5. Sport new and cooler thermals. 6. Invest in sweater sleeves. 7. Balance boxy with fitted.

    love the way you did this vest up! I have an old h&m jacket pre baby that I can’t let go. I throw a fur vest over it and boom. Great tips about the scarf length also
