Cold Weather Blues

January 18, 2016

Outfit with belted sweater

Brrrr, my goodness, it was 27 degrees when we did this photo shoot after our traditional Monday brunch date. I'm not a winter weather person, but I try my best to find motivation to dress up around this time of the year. Sometimes I just feel like staying all day in my house, wearing cozy pajamas while watching black and white movies and holding a cup of coffee. 
Today I had to get out and dress for this freezing weather. As you see, I decided to wear a dress instead of pants. I know it sounds crazy wearing a dress with temperatures below 30's, however, wearing something somewhat inappropriate for any giving situation is sometimes a thrill to me.
Last year on a cool day of summer, I wore this powder blue dress with my beloved trench coat and pumps, but today I needed more layering in order to stay warm.

I like to double up with colors and with powder blue. You can always match with a darker shade of blue and it'll look great. Each shade will bring out each other's tones effortlessly.

Mixed textures street style

I really love this outfit because, besides the fun layering, I also did a mix of textures. A furry sweater over a velvet dress seemed a great idea to wear under a cozy leopard coat and, by the way, how do you like the sweater belted with the dress sash? I think it's cute.
