Bundled





Dress (Taylor find at Marshalls); Jacket (Old Navy); Scarf (H&M); Tights & Socks (Kohls):
Boots (Guess find at Marshalls); Love ring (Etsy); Love bracelet (Windsorstore.com)

So we can all agree that offices are generally freezing... but in this outfit I was actually too warm! Maybe it's the blanket scarf, or the long sleeve shirt under my dress, or the layers of tights, socks, and boots... but I found myself getting really uncomfortable.  And yes I know I could have taken off the scarf (which would have helped lower my body temp tremendously) - but this was a look that I was determined to keep together!  And was it worth it to basically spend the day in a constant hot flash?  Probably not :)

Haha you're not the only one this happens to!! I've definitely done this before. I get into my car and start immediately tearing apart my outfit because I'm so dang hot. However - it's really cute!! And that scarf is amazing.

hehe blanket scarves! I think they are great to keep in the office for those randomly cold days :) Then I can snuggle up in my chair while I edit treatment reports :P

I do the same thing at work. Although my office is always freezing, the one day I wear layers it's so hot. And it just so happens that my thick sweater can't be taken off since I'm only wearing a bra underneath!

You look a azing! Love the pattern of the skirt!

Alyssa Longobucco said...

That always happens to me! My corner of the office is very warm, but the rest of it is chilly, so if I leave my desk I'm cold–just can't win! You always seem to have the most fabulous scarves though!

Ha ha...that is one HUGE scarf.

It's true though...you do need to lose some of your layers inside otherwise it's uncomfortable. Dressing for the winter season is just plain awkward.

I do love that skirt : )

I find I'm always warmer when I wear a scarf all day.

I love everything about this look! I think I just found another inspiration for my houndstooth dress! I finally got it back from the dry cleaners too so maybe I'll give something like this a spin!

Little Rus said...

But the scarf really is so beautiful! x

I love this whole outfit and I can see why you wouldn't want to break apart the ensemble! Totally worth the hot flash, haha! :)

I love how you wear a big scarf with that denim jacket. Is this really all you wear outdoors? I´ve been dressing like and eskimo for the last few months (I live in the North Pole, well, Finland) and this just looks absurd to me haha.

I so love your love bracelet!! Sacrifice for style...that scarf adds a punch to the tradition dress!!

Franzi said...

I got the same scarf, isn't it simply amazing? I've been using it as a scarf, a cape, a wrap, a blanket... atually also as a headshawl when I was visiting a mosque, haha.

you look great <3

Renae at simple sequins said...

Hey, girlfriend. You are a model waiting for an agency to happen. and ...Yes, my sweater is too comfy. and ...Yes, I have fallen (accidentally) asleep in it (while watching TV).

I am loving this entire (hot) ensemble. Your fashion sense is perfect!!!

Jamie said...

Haha that happens to me too. Sometimes we suffer for fashion :P But I do love that scarf! The colors are so pretty!

hannah said...

The trial and error with layers is the reason i hate tyhe cold - It is much easer to throw on one little layer for air in the Summer but in winter i feel like I am either freezing or schvitzing. It sucks! You look really cute x

The Domestic Sweetheart said...

So cozy chic! I miss dressing for the winter :)

Terri said...

You do look cozy! Air conditioning can be ridiculous sometimes. My classroom is always really cold, but our break room is always really warm. Makes it super annoying to dress or work every day.

As a resident of Texas, determined to make winter weather stay here for longer than like.. 3 weeks, I tend to try and layer too much, and then I'm hot for the rest of the day. (not that I'm not used to being hot..thank you awful summer months) But, I love this outfit! Especially that houndstooth dress!

I really love your skirt. So perfect for the office. I wish I had the problem of being too warm in my office, but it is definitely the opposite. Maybe I need to take that idea and wear a blanket scarf too!

You look soooo cozy! I'm still trying to find the right balance for the office too. Layers are definitely key! Looks like you guys have as much snow as us! I'm ready for Spring!! :-)

Jenn D said...

I feel you! I have such a love/hate relationship with winter clothes and layers. I really hate the cold (so lots of layers are a necessity) but I have a long day of work and I don't want to spend majority of it fixing my million layers while I sweat! It's an ever-going issue haha

Teddi said...

i would so wear those boots, that skirt, and the scarf! if i got hot, i would take the scarf off though. ;)

kimbercrafts said...

Your scarf looks so cozy! I love how it looks paired with the houndstooth dress.
