How I made it through the winter:
- Sweater tights under skirts and dresses (wearing my favorite Target pair here)
- Boots (my trusty black pair which I water-proofed or the always reliable Hunters)
- Chunky cowls (ie here and here)
For Bri's Third Thursday link-up, I challenged myself to winterize two items that I usually only wear in the summer:
Exhibit A: Winterizing a summer pencil skirt
I have three wool skirts for winter (here, here, and here) and several cotton J. Crew Factory pencil skirts for summer. I've always stowed the cotton ones away during the winter, but I decided to try a bright blue one with sweater tights, Hunter boots, and my favorite zip-up sweater (a Banana Republic Factory find that I wear at least twice per week).
Exhibit B: Winterizing a maxi skirt
I'm definitely a maxi skirt girl, but I always thought of them as a summer-only deal until Sydney convinced me otherwise. I added sweater tights, a chunky cowl, and of course, Hunters.
Despite all the winterizing, I have to admit that I'm majorly looking forward to spring: ballet flats every day and no more marshmallow coat!
Linking up with Work Clothes, I suppose.
