Real Mom, Winter Cozy Style - Link Up.

Today I am joining ANGELA from Reasons to Dress in co-hosting Real Mom Style - a Tuesday Link-up not just for Moms. Angela and I have a few things in common. We are both Americans currently living in European Cities and Mommy to Toddlers. Angela's style is so Urban-European, Up-town Chic. Over-sized coats, jeans, trousers, boots, blanket scarves and hats are part of her everyday style. Her posts also show gorgeous Italy where she is currently living and other Fashionable Italian Mammas.
Paying honor to the link-up I am totally showing my Mom Style in my Cozy Winter Layers. That is why I call this "Real Mom, Winter Cozy Style". And this Outfit was worn yesterday. I have been feeling the flu around me and I warmed up in lots of layers and Fur-lined Boots even. It did get warm later on the day so I skipped the Scarf. I am glad this Over-sized Knit Fair Isle Scarf finally made it into the blog. I love the elephants on it. It paired well with the Blue Sweater (love the bow detail on the back), Cherry Red Turtleneck, Grayish-Black Jeans, Brown Boots and Burgundy Beanie. If I had a Coffee (hmmm Starbucks) cup in my hand, I'd look even more like a Style Blogger lol. Have you bundled up in warm layers and cozy knits, lately?
Navy, Textured, Shimmery Sweater w/ Loop Back tied w/ a Silk Bow & Silver Stone Chest Pocket: Koton (similar w/ gray bow sash, great deal, love this), (gorgeous over-sized cowl-neck option, best deal, love this), (gorgeous draped option by Alice+Olivia, on sale), (fun cropped option).
Off-Black Wash, Skinny Jeans w/ Metallic Studs in the back pockets: White House Black Market (very similar, Splurge), (similar by All Saints, love these), (similar by Old Navy, best deal, love these), (this year's option by WHBM, fantastic deal).
Baby Pink/Brown/Beige/Ivory Fair Isle, Thick Oversized, Knit Scarf: A Random Boutique (New) (very similar by J.Crew, great deal, love this), (gray+ivory option by Gap, great deal, love this), (pretty, infinity option, fantastic deal).
Burgundy, Wool Knit French Beret w/ Burgundy Pearls (Embellished): A Random Boutique (similar, newsboy-cap by Nine West, great deal, love this), (elegant option, love this).

P.S. Also, linking up with Alison, Alycia, Amber, Ayana, Erin, J., Laura, Lauren, Lindsey, Lisa, Rachel, Shanna and Zaz.

    Your layers outfit is spot on. I'm having a moment with elephants and that scarf is the cutest. So glad you shared it! I'm tempted to buy a shirt from Zara with elephants. I wonder if I would wear it enough times to justify the buy.
