Tropical Winter

fashion, Uncategorized

I think we can all agree that the weather has been quite crazy this season in the Mid-Ohio Valley. In the 20’s one day and the 60’s the next. It has inspired me to show you how to wear a summer garment in the winter.

I love these tropical shorts and the reason these shorts work for the winter is because they are made of a polyester blend fabric; suitable for all seasons. I mixed this velvet bodysuit (which I swore I would never buy one because I wore bodysuits in elementary school. But, the good thing about them? They never untuck! This is why I decided to buy one. Plus it can be a challenge to find appropriate form-fitting shirts).

I then decided to pair these fuschia, suede, strappy heels to complete this look. I wore fleece-lined tights to keep my legs warm as well. Don’t be afraid to wear open toed shoes in the winter with tights. These are a good example because they are suede.

I love this look because I tend to wear dark colors in the winter and playing with bold prints ¬†and bright colors can be fun! This was new for me so why don’t you challenge yourself and give it a try ūüôā

With the weather finally getting brisk, I thought I would share a few tips on how to stay warm and trendy.  As you might already know, I love layering and winter is the best time to take full advantage of doing so.

I love my thigh high velvet boots because they are lined and extremely warm!¬† Win-win in my eyes; stylish AND warm.¬† Believe it or not these shoes are comfortable too because they’re wedges and the heels are only a¬†few inches high.

My blanket scarf is truly like wearing a blanket because of how cozy and warm it is.¬† I wore it with my newer faux leather jacket because it keeps me warm without wearing an oversized, heavy jacket.¬†¬†And the¬†best thing about wearing this combo together? You can wear a comfy warm shirt or even a hoody underneath and still look like you’re stylish because of the¬†jacket and¬†boots.¬† I wore¬†my shimmery silver sweater because I wanted to show off one my early Christmas surprises my mom sent me; a¬†bralette.¬† Just another little touch of texture and fun if I wanted to take off my jacket and scarf.

This is a great layering outfit to wear while running errands in the cold weather or Christmas shopping.  One thing I hate about shopping in the winter is having to lug around a heavy coat.  With a look like this you can keep your jacket on.  Make sure and bring a bigger handbag so you can store any of your winter accessories when it might get too warm indoors.

I only wore earrings with this look because of all of the different layers I was already wearing.  I chose an extra special pair; my leather chain earrings from Wit & Whimzy.

I hope you have fun layering this winter! As always, feel free to message me to share your looks or if you need some more advice.
