Survival Mode

Shirt: Thrifted, $3 // Sweater: Forever 21, $18 // Jeans: Forme, $20 // Boots: Target, gift // Necklace: Gift

I was so cold when I woke up yesterday that my only goal while getting dressed was to change that as quickly as possible. It wasn't till after I had piled on a bunch of layers (including tights under my jeans) that I bothered to look in a mirror. While aesthetics were definitely an afterthought, I felt reasonably presentable to the outside world and stayed nice and toasty all day.

You ended up with something cold-weather appropriate AND fabulously stylish??!? Start my jealousy engines.

I feel the same way about getting dressed in the morning with these freezing cold temperatures! I've been piling on the layers (well, double layers really) and hoping all those layers look fab. You look so cozy and chic!

Wow. I wish I could look that put together after just grabbing something in the morning! Today's look is perfect. Causal and comfy!

I think this looks great! The cardigan and the necklace are great counterpoints to the striped shirt.
