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 🙂

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.
