My Outfit Monday: Weathering the chilly temps



Note: We know it's Tuesday ... had a little trouble geting this up yesterday. Thanks for your patience!

I caught myself daydreaming this weekend about what I might wear today. Had it all laid out in my head - a fun dress I picked up a few weekends ago, some colorful tights, maybe some new heels.

Then I woke up. And it was cold. And I was like, "Ugh."

I reached for pants. Sometimes, comfort really does have to come before fashion. But I think I still did OK, right?

The pants I got maybe a couple years ago from Kohl's. I love them because they're the perfect foundation for a work/play outfit. They're dark navy without actually being denim. They can go casual or professional.

I decided since I was going neutral on bottom to mix it up on top. So I threw a jacket I scored from Sunshine Thrift with a lace top I got from Salvation Army.

I don't wear the jacket that often, probably because I sometimes second guess the built-in shoulder pads (too much?), but I love the subtle houndstooth pattern in black and fuschia. The lace top, which is in a bluish/purple/grey hue, was an impulse buy. I love using it to layer -- in this case over a simple navy tee.

I'm skimping on the accessories. I tried on a necklace but it seemed to get lost under the jacket anyway.
