Chambray + Silver

Seems like we are in for another cold week, and I've been finding it to be so hard to get dressed.
I don't even want to think about how much time I wasted on Pinterest this weekend trying to find some winter style inspiration that didn't involve absurd amounts of exposed skin. I mean, seriously:
Heels with jeans in 20° weather = freezing.
Dress with coat and bare legs in 20° weather = freezing.
Cropped pants with sandals in 20° weather = still freezing!!
But there is hope. There are some sensible people out there who wear boots and coats and hats and keep warm. And you can also take those freezing pins and alter them to a warmer state like I did with this one.

  1. It seems like whenever it's cold, we want to dress like it's warm, and vice-versa. But I'm glad you're staying somewhat warm, even if you can't find much inspiration for winter. :)

    I sure am liking all these textures you have! That metallic top was such a good buy, and looks so perfect with a chambray top underneath. :D And I love how your collar is peeking out up top--cuuute!

    && b'aw, Lyddie! Your comment is much too sweet, eep. And much needed. I will hopefully get better and better as I go, because you are right--if I can get better at film, then that only means digital photos will be easier to take. :) I have tried a pinhole camera once in high school, but I'd love to make one myself! That's a good idea, yepyep. :D

    Stay warm!! <3

  3. Winter weather definitely makes it hard to get dressed in the mornings. I think you nailed a winter look with this outfit. That sweater is gorgeous and you have done a great job remixing it.

  4. I am so with you on the lack of inspiration out there for 20 degree weather. I've been resorting to sweater dresses with tights/ leggings and tall boots. I love your winterized version of that pin!

  5. I can feel your pain! It is difficult to be fashionable in such temperature when all you really want to do is wear a floor length, hooded, seriously warm coat (if they make those) lol but you managed it very well. i am loving that silver sweater. it is so very rich and vibrant.

  7. I think this is a great winter look - and it makes sense because, you know, you're covered and keeping warm!

  9. It's so hard to get out of bed, much less get dressed when it's this cold outside! I love your metallic sweater.

  10. I love the color mix of the green bag and lighter green pants-the colors look so wonderful together! It is difficult to dress stylishly in the winter. I end up throwing on puffy sweaters that make me look like a marshmallow-but at least I'm warm! haha

  11. I really like that sweater! The whole outfit looks stellar!

  14. Winter weather does make getting dressed challenging, but you pulled together a great outfit. I like the blue and green with the silver.

  21. 20 degrees? I'd die. I feel cold even in 40 degrees here. (lol) we are soft in the Pacific Northwest.

    Cool combo. I like the way you layer.

  24. Days like today I would be fine staying in pajamas. At last I got to go home early. Below freezing temps are just not fun and gets tougher and tougher to try to stay fashionable.

    ReplyDelete
  25. You look so cosy and warm! I'm the same - can't be dealing with cold ankles and such in this weather! I love the colour of your trousers, so cute!

  27. I had to truly laugh out loud at what you came across in your inspiration search. Isn't it absurd?1 I love fashion just like the next girl, but being cold is not chic!!

    I love what you did with the metallic sweater! It looks great with the green!

  30. I so, so want this sweater! I need to get to a kohl's to try it on because it's perfect. I've been eying it for ages. GORGEOUS on you, especially with the mint jeans.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I think I need to do what you did, and take to Pinterest for some cold weather outfit inspiration. My outfits have been so boring lately. I like your look, though! There's nothing like some colored denim and a shiny sweater to liven up winter dressing!

    ReplyDelete
  32. It's actually supposed to be practically warm here this week, but it's going to rain or slush. Right now it's slushing out-- not snowing, icing, or even sleeting. Slush is the best word I have to describe it.

    If I had a chambray shirt and silver sweater I would be copying this look. Alas, these things do not exist in my wardrobe... yet.

  33. It was supposed to be super cold today but it turned out to be 70! Thankfully I was really feeling warmer weather clothes so I was good but seriously, it's so ridiculous!

    I really want to steal that silver top! I love it layered with your chambray.

  34. LOVE IT LOVE IT!!! Such a nice cool colors palette you have going on here!

  36. The silver sweater is absolutely gorgeous. In the past I would've thought a sweater like that could only be worn for a fancy shmancy occasion. But I love how easy it is to incorporate for every day outfits. Thanks for the idea! You look amazing :-)

    ReplyDelete
  37. My friend and I have both been wearing the heck out of this sweater! I love it! It's so much more interesting than a regular sweater and can be dressed up or down! I wore it to a Fashion/style even downtown with windowpane and leather leggings on my blog today...oh yes and HAIR! check it out!

  38. haha! I live in Arizona and all winter I wish and dream for cold days to wear cute, layered ensembles. And then we had a cold snap a few weeks ago and I almost died. Highs in the 40s? Brrrrrr. Forget cute layering, Burka and Uggs for me.

  39. Gorgeous outfit! I have just about given up on cute warm stuff. It happens once in a while, but not every day. Warm takes priority.

  40. Love the silver sweater styled the the denim...look fabulous! Even styled with tights, it is just too darn cold to wear skirts in the winter!

  41. Such a cute look and I am with you, when I get into a rut I am all over Pinterest
    I picked up that sweater so many times, I totally regret not getting it now

  53. Oh wow, the thought of bare legs scares me in the wintertime! I pretty much always wear my longjohns under everything and bare toes? Brrrr, no thanks!

    I really like seeing how much you wear these mint jeans, every time I see you rocking yours I get inspired to wear mine! (But I have bad follow through, soo...) It's so fun with the sparkly sweater.

  54. I also want a gold sweater!!!!! You look fab!
