Day 22 of 28 Days of Winter Outfits

We got a pretty decent snowfall last night, and our church building tends to be chilly, so I knew I needed to dress warmly today.

The snow boots were a must. I always like how they look with shades of pink, so I pulled this turtleneck out of my closet. It’s an oldie but goodie from Ann Taylor. I still swear by their cashmere. It’s only recently starting to show signs of wear, and it’s at least 5 years old.

I like a turtleneck with a vest of some sort; otherwise it can be rather plain. Plus, the vest is nice for added warmth, so I decided to wear my black puffy vest with the white collar. It came from Goodnight Macaroon a few years ago through a blogging gig. And I wore this pendant to break up the front.

What I REALLY wanted to wear with this was my white jeans. I thought they would be SO cute with the hot pink and the vest with the white trim and the snow boots. But when I got the outfit together, I decided they were too tight, and to be honest, I felt kind of silly wearing white jeans on a snowy day, even though I firmly believe white jeans in the wintertime is perfectly acceptable and on trend.

I ended up wearing these grey moto-style jeans that I kind of forgot about. I always like them with pink, and they are comfy, even after I’ve eaten a few too many peanut butter donuts, ahem.

Shop this look: cashmere turtleneck (similar) // vest c/o Goodnight Macaroon // moto-style jeans (old) // SOREL Tofino Cate winter boots c/o Zappo’s // Tory Burch Amanda Crossbody (ebay)

This outfit seemed perfectly sensible this morning, but when we got home from church, it was 40 degrees and sunny, and everyone was outside. Crazy weather!! I’ve since shed the boots and vest.

This is my last week of the 28 days of winter outfits, so I’m really going to try to make it count. Shopping my closet is a lot more fun than I thought it would be. I hope this series has encouraged you to dig deep into your wardrobe and find some oldies but goodies that might not be getting the airtime they deserve.
