Inspiration photo: I do deClaire
When I saw Laura’s outfit featuring lots of cozy layers, I knew I had to recreate it using items in my own closet given polar vortex #2 we are experiencing in Chicago. (Don’t worry, I do have pantyhose on, but the black tights or leggings would have been a much warmer choice!) Anything that involves tall boots, scarves and layers is a great option for winter in my book.
I love the pops of cognac in the boots, belt and scarf. Plus, the layering of the belt over the cardigan defines the waist!
Shop the look:
Dress: Old Navy (option, option, $$ option)
Scarf: Old Navy (option) Or you can enter to win one from Bri at Work Clothes, I Suppose. She is giving away one for her two year blogoversary!
What are your winter must haves?
Personally, I’m on the hunt for the quintessential Chicago coat: The North Face Metropolis parka. I’ve decided this is the item I want (or actually need) for my one-item-a-month clothing resolution.
I love the length and heard it keeps you pretty toasty, but I don’t want to pay full price.
Any ideas on where I can find a good deal on a gently used one? Otherwise, to eBay I go!
