I know it’s hard to get motivated to come up with a new outfit idea when its under 20 degrees outside, so I decided to share this one for some inspiration. My first reaction when I see temperatures below freezing is to say “forget it” and throw on my coziest cable knit sweater over jeans and call it a day. However, I was feeling particularly motivated this morning to come up with something that would keep me warm, but without the “frump”.
Here is all you need:
Now, here is the secret to staying super warm in this outfit. Underneath everything, add in:
Black or Neutral Opaque Tights (sheer ones don’t give you much warmth and knit ones might not fit under your pants)
Black Long Sleeved V Neck Tight Shirt
These two items will not cause a lot of bulk, but will add the extra layer you need to keep warm, while still looking cute!
I have been hesitant to purchase any printed denim since the trend started for fear that I would instantly hate the print. However, for some reason I have an affinity for snake prints (especially for handbags and shoes). So, when I saw these French Connection pants on sale at Bloomies I decided to try them out.
Note: They are not denim, they are a stretchy legging – like fabric with a snake texture. They also have an elastic waistband, which I thought was strange at first, but I don’t really mind it that much. They only downside of the elastic waistband is that you can’t wear these pants with shorter shirts that end at the hip.
Fit wise, they are super comfortable and feel like you are wearing your PJs out in public. The high contrast print makes them super flattering, especially at the thighs. They are very versatile and can be paired with colorful pieces as well as neutrals. Since they end right at the ankle, they can also be worn with flats, which is awesome for running around in the city.
You can still get them on sale at Bloomingdales for $83.16
Just got home from work to a wonderful surprise: My Steve Madden Abonita boots just arrived 🙂 They really do look a lot like the Rag & Bone Newbury boots. The heel is a great height for walking around in, while still giving you a bit of height. They also have a nice, small ankle opening, which I find hard to find in ankle boots. Most of the ones I try on have a huge opening that moves around when you walk and looks weird with skinny jeans or shorts. They are on sale on Amazon for $99 right now. I highly recommend as a wardrobe staple this year!
