How to Accessorize | I’m Layering it up!

Layers
The weather is dreadful. We’re in full on winter and I hate it. Iciness, a little bit of snow and just bitter cold – so what do I do? I dress in lots and lots of layers. I do not really like to wear pants, I think I get that from my grandmother. In order to stay warm while still wearing a skirt or dress I tend to layer it up.

This morning I finally pulled this Loft dress my friend gave me for Christmas out of the closet. It’s a dark olive green, almost brown dress so for me it’s a blank canvas. It’s a basic that you can do a lot with depending on your mood. It fits me slightly oddly in the midsection so I decided I needed to replace the wrap belt it came with and use my snakeskin belt. And what goes with a snakeskin belt? A cream and gold striped cardigan of course.

I decided to keep my tights dark and neutral today (chocolate brown) and wear my slouchy olive suede boots even in the yucky weather. And for just a little bit of color I added my favorite bird’s nest necklace for fun. I haven’t worn this one in a while. I’m also playing around with places in my house to take pictures in the morning now. So I apologize for the single photo and it’s a bit too dark for my taste. I’ve been moving things around and with the new full tripod it’s hard to find a good space for pictures that’s not too cluttered looking. So what do you wear to keep warm?
