Because I must look for the best in things, I suppose winter can be pretty cool. The frigid weather offers ample opportunity to wear piles of different clothes without melting into a colorful puddle of sequins and floral fabrics. I really love the look layering achieves -- it provides an interesting depth to an outfit along with countless possibilites to choose from. Here is my thought process when I feel inspired to throw another layer on.



the basics: J Crew sequin skirt + Gap tank + Anthropologie belt


up next: a quirky tee from Marc by Marc Jacobs + Hue tights


another layer: a bright men's top from Ralph Lauren + Marc Jacobs pumps + a red lip


finishing touches: a cozy H&M cardigan to tie everything together

  12. This is such a cute post! I love the use of the .gif image, haha. You always have the cutest outfits, and I love all the pieces here - I'm pretty sure I was mildly obsessed with that same J. Crew skirt for some time. Anything with sequins, and I'm there!
