Just Trenched


Today’s style story offers a glimpse into what day to day cool weather wear looks like for me in my neck of the woods! 

Hat: Here| Sunnies: F21, old| Trench coat: Here| Tank: F21, old |Coated denim jeans: Misses & Plus| Booties: Marshalls |Purse: Kate Spade

I was born and raised in Michigan, and was accustomed to long grizzly Winters and short intense Summers. That called for puffy coats, fur, fur, faux fur, and more fur :) When I moved to the west coast of the country, I had to shift my way of thinking, even in relation to my idea(s) of dressing for the season.

This look is a perfect example of how I like to employ layers and mix in differing style elements from a variety of seasons. You see, generally speaking, mornings start off brisk and without a lot of sunshine. If I’m going to be out and about in the elements, I need layers. This can be a bit tricky… by midday the intensity of the sun shifts temperatures drastically (in my head at least by 20 degrees). At that point, it is necessary to begin removing layers one at a time, if not all at once! However just a few hours later, the sun drops, and temperatures are back to brisk formation, requiring layers to be reapplied in rapid fashion-LOL!

This way of dressing/undressing was such a conundrum for me when we first moved out west! It is only as of late that I feel I am getting a handle on it :) Nonetheless, just when I think I’ve gotten the hang of it totally, Summer weather makes a total comeback and the concept of cool weather wear goes out the window completely, LOL!

I’m curious, how do you dress for cool weather in your neck of the woods?

Until next time,
XO

  2. Such a Fabulous look on You and I love the layers. We get 6 to 8 days of cool weather in my neck of the woods and a jacket with a layer or two does the trick.

  3. You look too cute! In California, it doesn't get too cold. In the winter, I'm good with a coat, but I normally add on more accessories just for fashion's sake lol

  9. You are absolutely adorable! Love the trench coat as a layering piece, its stylish and so practical and that hat!!! Love the hat, what a fun added accessory. I live in Norther Utah and at this time of year its all about layering. I rely on cardigans of all different lengths and scarfs which can be removed so easily.
