Sweaters are better

Spring does what it wants. Yesterday morning I woke up to a beautiful snowfall. All the schools had a delay and I was wishing I had one to so I could have gone out and photographed the trees by the duck pond and maybe taken some outfit photos too, as by the time I got home there was barely a trace of the snow left.

All too often I'm hasty to wear more summery clothes at the first signs of spring, but as someone who is perpetually cold, I know I'll be much happier wearing sweaters and boots, unless it actually happens to be 60° out.

  1. I go through phases, sometimes I want to wear summer things, but other days I'm like BRING ON THE CHUNKY SWEATER!!!

  2. Even though it's not a spring look, I totally get the need for the layers. I also am perpetually cold, so I will always wear a jacket just in case. Lovely look!

    New Post Up!

  3. Spring does have a mind of its own, doesn't it!? It has felt like summer for the past week, and now it feels like winter again!

  4. I always wish we could have a gradual warming of the temperature, but that never ends up happening. I struggle to stay warm while dressing for spring too, but all too often I just revert to layers like you. I hate being cold!

  5. I'm always cold too. I keep a jacket in my car. Love the leopard clutch.

  6. It was definitely very cold here yesterday too, no snow though. I wore a huge infinity sweater scarf once again, and my puffer coat.

    Love this chic monochromatic look Lydia. The jacket and clutch are gorgeous. I need a cheetah clutch like that. =)

    Come join my new linkup on Thursday, if you like. Welcome by. Thanks, Ada. =)


  7. You look good. Nice purse..

  8. I'm really hoping that was it with the snow, I hate being cold too!

  9. The weather is definitely erratic here in KC, too. It snows on Saturday night but is like 70 degrees today.

    Loving that leather jacket!

  12. I'm always cold, too! Layers are my friend even in the summer :)

  15. lovely look! very pretty causal yet edgy!

  16. I know, I wish those delays and snow days extended to "regular" jobs too, right?! I'm the same way--wanting to reach for all my spring stuff, but then those 40 degree days hit and I'm regretting my lack of socks. Love this cute, cozy look!

  17. Loving that sweater with your leather jacket! So perfect!


  18. I definitely jumped the gun on the warmer clothing and froze one of the days I did! This outfit is so cozy and perfect for those in between days!

  19. I love the leather jacket over your sweater. That clutch is beautiful, very similar to the one I have too.

  20. When I saw the snow the other morning, I thought, "When did this happen??" I'm always tempted to do bare legs when it gets just a little bit warmer, but yesterday I resisted because I knew it was going to be cold during the times I was actually out and about! Love your sweater in this post. It looks very cozy :)

  21. Sweaters are always better. I am loathe to admit it but I wear mine almost year round, usually only retiring them from mid-June to early September - and even then, I usually keep a cardigan or two out for during the day. This sweater is one of my favourites in your collection, as I'm sure you know since I say that every time you wear it, but for me it never gets old, especially paired with a leather jacket.
