We’ve entered the brutally cold, seemingly endless days of late winter, and I’m having to get creative with my layering. Honestly, on the -30 degree windchill days – of which we’ve had many so far – I’m wearing a variation of this or this. Exclusively. Nothing beats Icelandic wool. But on days when it’s a balmy -10 or above, I’ve been layering sweaters under my jackets. This Woolovers turtleneck is a favorite due to that nice high, snug collar. I love the look of cowls, but man, they are useless in a high wind. All the coldness just slinks its way down your body starting at your collarbone.

I know many of you are coping with awful cold and ridiculous winter storms. Care to share any layering tips?

Truly sloppy, snowy weekend days get the Sorel treatment, but for fluffy snow like this I haul out my durable, weathered leather boots like these beloved Fryes. Paired with leggings – my new favorite brand, more on it next week – and a tunic my parents gave me for Christmas, they add just the right amount of edge. I will say, though, that I’m getting pretty sick of this brutal cold. Evidence below.

Dressed for: Plaid and Leather

Already Pretty outfit featuring cognac leather jacket, plaid shirt, boyfriend jeans, brown ankle boots, canvas tote

Plaid and leather can definitely be a punk-y combination, especially if we’re talking red and black buffalo plaid with black leather. But due to a warmer color palette this look is a little more Fancy Lady Lumberjack, I think. I wonder if THAT look will ever be trendy …

A year later, I’m still so excited to have scored this leather jacket on eBay. It’s originally from Victoria’s Secret, and surprisingly soft and well-made in addition to being that perfect shade of cognac. Oh, cognac. I may never drink you, but I sure do love to wear you.

Can you tell I’m feeling a little scattered this week? It’s like Brain Popcorn in here.
