I may have mentioned this oh, I don't know, 30 times before, but just in case you haven't heard yet, I hate being cold. And I'm cold all the time. Needless to say, I layer like an absolute fiend in the winter, particularly since in a given day I can go from chilly temps outside to a drafty but reasonably warm cafe to a stuffy hot apartment…in other words, my layers need to not only keep me warm outside, but I need to be able to shed down to different levels to stay comfortable everywhere.

Like my go-to trick for layering maxis, it's all about opting for thinner pieces when it comes to outerwear and layering them one on top of another - I especially love doing this with pieces that range in texture, particularly ones with strong collars that highlight each piece even with the top layer on! Despite the fact that this look is entirely neutral-toned, the combo of textures and graphic touches keeps it from looking completely one-dimensional (plus some J.Crew bling never hurts either!).

So happy it's almost the end of the week! For some reason, this week has dragged on and I'm so looking forward to fun times this weekend. Tomorrow night I'm having a crafts night at my house (I'm not crafty so my friend and I are helping the creative process along with a good amount of wine), Saturday I'm going to the ballet with my sister and mum and Sunday I have a fun holiday-themed shoot with the lovely Ainsley Rose Photography! And yes, will finally get to some Christmas shopping…eek. I'm totally one of those people running around on the 23rd with a panicked look on their face.

Where are you guys at in your holiday prep? Almost through your list or still haven't even started like me?

Oh, and one more thing - our LOFT winner! Congrats Chelsea Leadbetter - you've won the gift card to LOFT! Thank you so much to everyone who entered! I'll have one more giveaway coming up for this holiday season so stay tuned!

  1. I am all about layers in fall and winter, I similarly dislike being cold. I love that tweed-like middle layer coat!

  2. I layered two coats the other day but never thought of trying 3! Maybe I'll attempt with a moto vest being the base layer - love this look!!
