Dressing for the Cold

Hey guys. As my mom would say “It’s colder than a witch’s tit on the 1st of November” right now. At first I was so inspired by the cooler weather. Getting to layer and pull out that jacket I bought 3 years ago but never got to wear was exciting, but day by day it’s gotten much harder to get dressed in the mornings. I have been shopping everywhere lately to stock up on sweaters, cardigans and beanies to keep myself warm, so I wanted to put together a few outfit ideas for you ladies to keep you cute in the cold. I’ll also be sharing some of the best places to grab cute winter clothes for a great deal.

Bring on the layers! I piled a great cream chunky cable knit tunic sweater over a chambray button down with faux leather leggings for a casual outing with my husband. Lately I’ve been living in these super comfy Sketcher’s Flatform Sneakers because they give me a little height without making my feet hurt like a wedge does. I snagged this sweater in my Stitchfix a few months ago but here is a great dupe I found for it for only $20 at Target! Also these faux leather leggings are so great, I have the Spanx version which is a little pricer (but my cellulite says it was worth it), but I did find a great pair on Zulily too, they go with everything as far as layering goes, and are a little warmer than typical cotton leggings because the fabric isn’t as breathable.

Remember that jacket I was talking about never being able to wear?! Here it is! Bust out your moto jackets! Honestly this whole look makes me feel like such a badass person that I can only wear it once a month or else my sass levels might rise too high. I paired it over a red Express sweater that’s on sale for $35 in store right now and these adorable velvet shorts that look super cute with tights. Personally I don’t do a ton of shorts outfits because I hate my legs, but being able to disguise them with tights really helps me out! I finished this look off with some moto boots to match the jacket and it was so easy to walk out the door while staying warm all day!

Comfy and Casual. I just posted details on this hoodie on my personal blog, but this sweater is all my weekend feels! It’s only $20 at Target, I love wearing it with leggings, but it’s not “length appropriate” for leggings in my book so I’ve been layering it with oversized button downs to keep my ass covered, literally. Also I can’t get enough of these adorable woven beanies with the pom poms on top! They are so fun and basically match every casual outfit you have, plus at only $8 at Target, it’s not like you’re wasting a ton of money if it happens to be 80 degrees again next week.

Add a Pop of Color. I found this Barbie pink sweater at Express ($30 on sale right now) and I LOVE it! Anytime I wear it I get tons of compliments on how fun it is, and it really does just make me feel so fun and feminine. It can be worn layered with a cami like I have it here, or pulled slightly off one shoulder for a more “sexy” look. For those not into the hot pink it comes in about 6 other colors as well and it is SO warm! The balloon sleeves add a little trendiness that I really love in easy pieces and it’s a great option for a Valentine’s day look for a class party, day date, Galentine’s Wine Night, etc!

I wanted to include a few dressier looks for those working Mama’s out there! This a great sheer bodysuit (actually it’s legit lingerie from Victoria’s Secret) that I paired with a cami and this cute pink skirt from Target! The skirt has pockets so obviously it’s a huge winner in my book, and it made from a poly blend, so it’s a little heavier than your typical skater skirt. Since I was pairing two solids together with the black and fuchsia, I added a leopard belt and boots for that pop of texture/pattern I like all my outfits to have!

Another dressier option is to pair black tights with a black skirt and black boots for a really warm yet flirty outfit. I added a faux fur vest & bell sleeved sweater (express $17 on sale right now) to keep me super warm while looking super cool. I really encourage you to find a faux fur vest if you don’t already have one. I’ve had this specific one for a little over 3 years now. They hold up really well since you don’t wear them a TON, so one will last you for a long time and it’s a great way to add some warmth and texture to an outfit if you’re feeling jazzy!

Last but not least, is basically my daily uniform. Cami, Jeans, Mules & a Cardi. This open front white thermal cardi was only $25 at Express with their extra 40% off clearance sale right now and I LOVE it! It’s so soft and so perfect for lounging around in. These lace satin cami’s have been super popular lately and I can see why. Since buying this pink one last week at Target for $17 I’ve probably worn it like 4 different ways so far, and ordered the black version online. The web sizing is limited but keep a look out for it in your Target because it’s so versatile and you’ll be able to use it season after season!

Hope that helps you keep cute warm this Florida “winter” ❤
