We live in a house built in the 1940's and try to be energy efficient so this time of year we're accustomed to wearing multiple layers and even hats indoors to stay comfortable. But this year, we're spending more time outside even as it's getting colder and I'm finding myself styling outfits that are not just layers, but layers of sweaters over sweaters and this look is a variation of my winter uniform.
Turtleneck: Universal Standard (XS, previously seen here) | Jeans: Flare Jeans c/o Talbots (14 petite, previously seen here) | Cardigan: Snyder Jacket c/o M.M.LaFleur (M/L, previously seen here) | Boots: Kamryn Ankle Boot c/o Vionic | Bag: The Medolla Medium Saddle Bag c/o Maxwell Scott (previously seen here)
I wore this look yesterday when my daughter and I did our weekly visit to see my mom. We are in a quarantine bubble with her and my sister; we all live in the same city and have been super careful with activities to ensure we keep one another healthy.
Every weekend we go to my mom's house to hang out for a couple of hours. We love spending it on her screened-in-porch even when it's chilly so I dressed for the weather with a sweater on sweater.
TBH I also brought the ruana seen in this outfit post as well for extra warmth. Ruanas are great because they can double as a lap blanket or even a pashmina/scarf, and the colors matched my outfit so nicely! This ruana is no longer available but I found some other ones linked below:
The turtleneck is merino and a favorite because it fits well (neck not too tight, body trim but not fitted) and the gray goes with so much. Unfortunately, it's only available in limited sizes and colors at Universal Standard. This one looks like a good alternative and while it comes in many colors it doesn't come in gray.
Speaking of boots, Vionic recently sent me these and I love them. If your feet have been hurting from wearing flat slippers and socks, you may be craving a shoe with good support. Vionic is so good for arch support and comfort. These boots come in a variety of colors and finished and are not only waterproof but also have a waterproof zipper. They were also comfortable straight out of the box – no hot spots or blisters or the need to break them in!
