For The Win(ter) :: hat + long cardigan

Monday, February 23, 2015

 In need of a winning winter combination? Search no further than rich hues, a sharp wool coverup, luscious OTK boots, and a killer hat. 
Tomorrow's outfit = done!  
This show-stopping necklace by R.J. Graziano was a Christmas gift from my mom this past year. She fell in love with the unique design and elegant detailing and so did I. This is the perfect piece to dress up just about anything. It certainly steals the show, doesn't it? 
Being a sucker for anything leather, these pockets sealed the deal for me when deciding whether or not to purchase this insanely versatile cardigan.
Give your beanie a rest. When it comes to stylish winter hats, this Anthropologie gem is a no-brainer.
These are the winter boots I've been getting the most use out of lately. I love the fact that they're over-the-knee, plus the sleek black silhouette is elegant yet versatile enough for every day. Even better - they match my leather pockets perfectly! 
Grey pearls for a polished finishing touch.

 Layering is your best weapon during wintertime. While I am no master at layering, I strive to become better at it each season, and the Ann Taylor cardigan I'm wearing here is the perfect piece to do just that. Whether you pair it with a turtleneck, a tee, or even a dress, this cardigan - or any other similarly thick sweater - is your secret weapon against the chill. 

These photos were taken at my elementary school. Although this playground wasn't around 10 years ago, my dad and I thought it would be a fun backdrop for a contrasting sophisticated look. These photos may be taken on a playground, but it would look just as chic on city streets. 
Another way I wore this cardigan...
