I find winter to be a hard time to dress for when it comes to work. Most mornings, it's too cold and it's hard to even think about getting out of bed to brush my teeth, let alone think about the outfit I'm going to wear.

Then I realized that a cute layered look doesn't actually require much thought if it's formulaic! Who hasn't worn the classic shirt under sweater combination before? I paired that with my wool A-line skirt from J.Crew Factory (it has POCKETS!) and belted it to make the outfit look more dressy. Topped it off with my classic camel coat/ Et voila! Perfect work outfit!

Lately, the weather has been a lot warmer (unlike those couple of weeks where the temps were consistently far below freezing) so I haven't had to think too deeply about getting dressed warmly. I wore a pair of cropped trousers with flats and no socks yesterday! Suns out, ankles out, amirite?? I hope it stays that way, I hate being cold!

  7. That is such a cute skirt, and I love your layered outfit! :) I find winter I wear a lot of dresses - fleece lined tights, ankle boots and a dress and I feel like I look a little more energised than I feel, always so hard to get out of bed on a winter morning!

    Hope that you are having a good week so far! Busy week here for me now that I'm back at work after my break.

    I also find it hard to dress in the winter, I can't make as much effort as I normally would so having a few cool outfits planned like that really does help!
