I've had a few comments about how my layering. Thankfully they've all been nice ones, but they still make me giggle a little. I don't really layer to be all FASHUN! Actually I am just freaking cold all. the. time. I even have a tank top underneath all of this and knee high socks for extra warmth. Thank goodness vests are back in style. Hurray for socially acceptable additional layers! ;)

After a few weeks of going it alone, I am pumped to have more co-hosts lined up! This week Tea from What Mama Wears is joining me. She is a blogger on a budget, mama of 2, and super relatable! I really enjoy seeing her casual, but always put together outfits. Check out what cute outfit she is sharing today!

  4. I've just had a serious "aha!" moment seeing your outfit. I never wear cardigans with vests because I don't like the different-colored sleeve effect and because the open vest and cardigan don't ever look right for me. And now I see that all along I could have just been buttoning up my cardigan first, haha!

  5. I'm loving the mint and black combo! I had to smile about the layering! I do it to stay warm too - I can't believe how cold it is!

  6. I would never have mixed these two colors, but I love it! I really enjoy taking items that I typically wear during the warmer months and changing them up so I can add color to my winter wardrobe. Great idea!! Susan

  7. Oh I love mint and black together! I'm going to send your post onto my sister - we were out shopping for a dress for her the other day and she mentioned she needed a cute black cross body bag. When she bought a cute mint dress, she had to double check with me that the bargain black bag she had found would be a good colour to go with the dress. Your outfit can be a visual confirmation to her of what I said, that black goes with everything and looks great with mint! :)

    Thank you for the link up :)

  17. What a beauty outfit! I know I'm one of those comments about your layering - mostly because my layering always ends up looking lumpy and yours looks so streamlined and chic - it's super duper cold up here right now, so layers aside I'm not venturing out without adding a hat/scarf/down coat/super-warm boots/mittens but a vest is still a great option for adding a layer without adding too much bulk.
    Love the mint/black colour combo too!
    Thanks for having me co-host! xo Tea.

  18. You are too funny. I don't know how people who live in the north and have real winters do it. When it was in the teens here the other day, I thought I was going to die. Love your colors!

  35. You always layer nicely. During Winter most of the time I have knee-high socks under my pants and sometimes with dresses and tights too and always a tank-top. Love this look. Wish I had a Mint Cardigan and Herringbone Vest.
