Lots of Layers and Warmth with a Dress.

It's 10.30 AM. I have been awake for a good half an hour but I just left my bed & turned the heat on. It is a cold home in here. Plans for today: take a shower, cook some lunch, do dishes & (the one I loathe the most) take down the Christmas Tree. Yes you heard that right - I still have the tree & decorations up. I don't mind putting up the tree but taking it down is a hassle. I plan on taking down all the ornaments, empty it out & then husband can take the tree down & box it up.

This outfit is layered up, between the dress, scarf, belt, blazer, tights & hat, I felt both warm yet chic. I mixed & matched a bunch of Neutral, Earthy Colors like Brown, Gray, Khaki, Burgundy & Cognac. I defined my waist this time and I am much happier with the results than the first time around. You can tell I was happy in this outfit because I took a gazillion photos in it. I wore it to work for the first part of the day, then I added the hat (for more warmth) when I met a friend for Tea, later in the evening. She complimented me on the outfit, as well. She dresses well herself so that's nice. =)

  1. You look very Parisan chic with your hat :) I love it when an outfit makes me feel confident. You can tell you liked this look by the photos for sure. I meant to tell you yesterday that I like the new blog layout too! Heather

    1. Thanks Heather. I tried smth different with the new layout & new header. I still haven't figured out this entire HTML thing. I used to be good at it during MySpace days but that has been so many years ago, I have forgotten it now. I'd love to learn how to do a button, too.

      Yes, Parisian Chic is a huge compliment - I will take it.

  3. What a fun hat! I hardly ever wear hats, but when I see people wearing cute ones I always want to incorporate them more. You look lovely!

    1. Thanks. Looks like the hat is a keeper. It is hand-made and purchased for a good deal. I wish I had a cozy, knit scarf to match it.

      I used to wear hats quite often between the ages of 19-24. I owned a bunch of them. I have gotten rid of some of them now but I have also purchased more. I need to incorporate them into outfits more often. =)
