seven layer cake!

a seven layer cake of warm and cozy sweaters, that is! i quickly learned a few things in boston while dressing for the cold:

1. knee highs over tights are not really warm enough.
2. bloggers who live in cold places either own tons of coats to create different looks, or they freeze to take outfit photos (like i am sort of doing here!)
3. your outfit rarely even sees the light of day, because your coat is usually on.
4. most of your clothes are too tight with the seven layers you have on underneath.

i give many people a lot of credit for staying cute and warm! it was NOT easy! luckily this cozy snowflake fair isle cardigan was thick and warm! we took these on Berkeley street. i don’t think i can ever get sick of all of the lovely brick all over the city. ❀

p.s. make sure to snag something from the $7 sale in my store! yup, only $7 for cute vintage πŸ™‚

  • Haha I totally agree! It's difficult to come up with warm and cute looks. And I usually have to face the cold for a bit while taking outfit photos ha! But you look very adorable and cozy! Love those shoes ❀

    I live about an hour north of Boston, and it got down to 2 degrees the other day. All hope of fashion went out the window! I hope to be one of those bloggers with many coats soon. πŸ™‚

  • Cuddle duds under every pair of pants, if none are available, leggings! Layers over everything and stay indoors if it too bad! Lol, I moved from Phoenix to Maine and learned QUICK! P.S. If you wear a dress, wool tights are best

    Loving the streets, the bricks, and the outfit that goes so well with the surroundings.. give mes some feel of warmth hehe…

  • You have the best knit sweaters ever <3

    Colour Me Classic

  • Great outfit, loving that sweater


  • I am always impressed by the wintry-blogs wearing dresses without coats with a snowy background. I don't know how they do it! When I try and take outfit posts in the winter most of them have me scowling or wincing in them. It's hard to look happy when you are shivering!

    You definetely succeed in still looking cute and happy!

  • I love your blog, it is amazing, really (:
    I visit your blog since one year and every day
    Kiss from France for you <3

    I love Boston! It's beautiful. It is so hard staying warm and cold and the coat situation drives me nuts. Like you bundle bundle bundle and then go in somewhere and have to spend several minutes undressing only to have to put it back on again. Shopping especially drove me nuts haha. First world pains.

  • Haha, this is funny and incredibly accurate. Personally, I usually just suck it up and freeze for the 10 minutes for outfit photos. It isn't always fun.

    So glad you had fun here in Boston, though!


  • Perfect bag ! You have amazing legs

    Coline !

  • love the denim blouse paired with those dress pants! great look!
