Mad for Layering

& plaid! Yes, it's true, this is my second blog post in a row that I'm covered in plaid. So maybe I am a little mad for the plaid trend... But who isn't?! My favorite way to style my outfits for the cold weather is layering. I love having fun with different patterns and layers of socks, tights, and scarves and this is how I decided to throw all of that in one! I feel that layering gives you a sense of security... not everything needs to be matchy-matchy and you'll still end up looking trendy (and staying warm!)

The layers:
Scarf - Free People exact this is my favorite staple piece for the below 100° season! This oversized scarf gives you the option to turn one scarf into an endless amount of looks. Can't wait to see how many outfits I can incorporate this scarf into!
Socks - H&M (found in stores only)
Tights - Target
Shorts - PacSun's stone washed high waisted denim
Promise Ring - this Tiffany Enamel Ring was given to me by my boyfriend of 5 years (yes, 5!) I switch it up from my ring finger to my pointer finger and it's my favorite hand accessory - so be prepared to see it in every post!
Plaid button down - Abercrombie & Fitch exact 
Riding Boots - Franco Sarto (found at Nordstrom)
Oh and what's in the cup? Carmel frap upside-down with whip!


  1. I love your outfit so much! You really have a gift with layering- the clothes compliment your height rather than swallowing you up :)

    1. Thank you so much!
      I do have to keep my height in mind because I find that not ALL things work for me.
      Luckily, I've gotten down how to make layering work despite being teeny tiny!

      Thanks for taking the time to leave feedback!

    Notwithstanding, I just experienced five irregular connections of this rundown, and ran over 2 locales that didn't utilize CommentLuv by any stretch of the imagination, and one was disconnected on the grounds that its space was terminated. Not your blame – I know, but rather since your article is just a month and a half old, I thought I let you know.


Thank you for taking the time to leave any feedback! I love and appreciate every comment I receive. I do my best to reply to everyone and I'm always sure to stop by your blog to check it out or leave some love.
