Bundled but not frumpy

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:

Denim shirt – I recommend these:HERE, HERE and HERE.

Grey Cashmere V Neck Sweater – I recommend these: HERE, HERE and HERE.

Black Skinny Ponte Pants – I recommend these: HERE, HERE & HERE.

Brown Knee High Boots – I recommend these: HERE, HERE & HERE.

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!

4 ways to wear your chambray shirt

One of the hottest, must have items for the Fall was the chambray shirt.  So, how can you take this wardrobe essential and refresh it for Spring?

Take some hints from these 4 looks:

Look 1: This simple yet flirty look pairs the shirt with short black shorts, opaque tights and flat, brown, lace up boots.  The emphasis here is on the legs, so keep the shirt buttoned all the way up.

Look 2: Take a more feminine approach by layering your chambray shirt over a floral blouse and using a skinny belt to accentuate your waistline.  Relaxed fit, faded jeans and some platform wedge sandals complete this soft spring look.

Look 3: Mix preppy with flirty by layering a striped, scoop neck sweater over your chambray shirt.  A floral pleated skirt and strappy sandals complete this springtime look.

Look 4: Class it up with high waisted, pleated shorts or trousers and a tucked in blouse.  The chambray shirt acts as a casual accent and gives the look just the edge it needs.
