So you'd think with the extra 'warmth' layer I created from eating so much during the holidays I wouldn't be so dang cold at work. You would be wrong! So I've been trying to layer with some of my lighter spring and fall jackets as outfit pieces. And it works, kind of. The plaid compliments the jacket and adding a small striped pattern adds more interest. I can't believe this poor jacket has been waiting to be worn again for so long!

  7. This is the one winter I haven't cold, haha, thinking this baby belly has been insulating me a little. Typically, I'm the one who runs a heater in my office during the summer, always cold!


    Loving this outfit, the green jacket is different and refreshing!

  27. These days it feels too cold for life. I've been wearing scarfs as outerwear that I end up never taking off all day. Love the apple green jacket - gorgeous color.

  36. Love this look...this is something I could definitely recreate, but with my cargo jacket! (I just always struggle with tying a blanket scarf without it look like it's going to eat me lol.) You do it flawlessly!

  37. This is a great look you create! I still like your green motor jacket than the one I bought recently. Yours is more feminine.
