Holy Guacamole Batman, did it get cold this weekend or what! Waking up this past Saturday to 25 degree temperatures was just plain cruel; especially given that it was 70 degrees two two weeks prior.
Since we’ve been lucky enough to have warmer than normal temperatures for the bulk of this month, I’ve been holding off on wearing any of my winter staples. This past weekends shocking cold had to reaching for just about every single winter season staple I have in my closet.
I’ve mentioned this before, I find that a denim button down is probably hands down the most important wardrobe item in my closet. I pretty much wear it year around, like this spring outfit, this summer look, and more recently this fall outfit that I received so many compliments on via instagram! thank you!
I wasn’t ready to bust out my big winter puffer jacket just yet so I decided that this weekends outfits was going to be all about the sweater layers. I layered this great extra long sleeve knit sweater over my favorite chambray shirt and threw on my moto jacket for a cozy look. While layering a sweater over a thicker button down can sometimes get bulky looking, I do have a trick for you all – tank tops! If you layer a tank top over the button down, it smooths everything into place and keeps your button down from riding up under your sweater.
While I did have to pull out my puffer jacket this morning, I’m going to try and conserve the jacket for when the really bad winter weather hits Chicago in January. In the meantime, keep the sweater layers coming!
