Baby, It's Cold Outside

Anyhow, as the temperature is beginning to go below the thirties, my goal for the upcoming horrifying months is to find a way to make myself look fashionable--or at least decent--and warm at the same time. I think I make myself even more miserable by wearing layers and layers of God knows what until I can hardly move my limbs just so that I don't freeze my legs off. Since getting out of my yoga pants is hard enough, this is going to be a big challenge for me, but I hope that this challenge will make the winter more enjoyable or at least more bearable. 

Today's outfit is definitely not something for the polar vortex, but this kept me warm for those rather cold autumn days. I had purchased an asymmetrical plaid skirt in Korea (for less than $5!) but the notorious Chicago wind always managed to flash my butt. Therefore on this day I wore a heavy mohair coat to keep all that skirt under control, and tucked in a simple loose black sweater. I put on a beautiful opal necklace to add to the simple outfit, and wrapped a chunky scarf to keep myself warm. Finally, I wore a black leather ankle boots that have lovely suede lace-up details on the side. And this is just the beginning! Stay warm, xoxo!

  2. I feel you girl, right now it's still too warm for the season but I remember last winter, taking outfit pics was, well let say not a nice, taking off the coat, standing there freezing and trying to smile was not easy, lol. I love the outfit, the skirt is cute, love the asymmetrical hem.

  4. So warm and cozy, I need that scarf in my life! I love your jacket and looks like it's from a korean brand? Do they ship to the US? By the way have you heard of Miamasvin? I love their wide selection of outerwear and wondering if I should jump the boat :) xo~ Lenawww.felinecreatures.com

  6. This may sound wrong but the mental image of you flashing your butt is hilarious! I have a skirt or two that does that to me too, it's annoying and embarrassing but the things we do for fashion, eh? LOL! We've been waking up to -4 Celsius this past few mornings and it's definitely different for me who hails from Malaysia.
