Dressed for: The Last of Snow

Or so I hope. It feels like spring is truly here, so today’s post is a multi-outfit smorgasbord meant to get any remaining snowy-weather ensembles out of the queue!

P.S. If it snows again before November, I will probably cry bitter, bitter tears. And I know I won’t be the only Minnesotan to do so.

Bag – J.W. Hulme

(First seen on Instagram, where I declared it my Dean Winchester look.) I bought this graphic tee after seeing the David Bowie Is exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. I have seen three museum retrospectives that have left me totally speechless: Keith Haring at the Whitney (which actually made me cry), Alexander McQueen at the Met, and David Bowie at the MCA. I hope they decide to tour it around a bit more – it closed a couple of months ago – because it is comprehensive, educational, impressive, gorgeous, multi-faceted, and fantastically entertaining. Seeing it moved Bowie out of the “amazing” category and into “genius” in my opinion.

Already Pretty outfit featuring Boden coatigan, gray jeans, abstract print scarf, distressed leather messenger bag, Steve Madden ankle boots

Scarf – Nordstrom (no longer available) – similar
Cardigan – Boden
Tee – thrifted – similar
Jeans – H&M Conscious
Boots – Steve Madden Winola (almost sold out) – similar
Bag – Leather in Motion

Oh so very blown-out, that background, but it certainly makes the outfit pop. I’ve been trying to expand my scarf-tying horizons a bit, and here did my geometric scarf up in the Double Loop. A nice option to take some volume out and keep ends from dangling down.

Already Pretty outfit featuring Desigual scarf, black tunic, skinny jeans, Steve Madden ankle boots

Scarf – Desigual (no longer available) – more Desigual scarves
Tunic – thrifted via Twice – similar
Jeans – H&M Conscious
Boots – Timberland Earthkeepers Stratham Heights
Bracelet – Karin Jacobson

This tunic really is one of my favorite Twice finds. (Seen again here.) It’s lightweight enough to be worn all year, but was fun to do with skinnies and tall boots, a combo that used to be my go-to but hasn’t been in high rotation this winter.

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?

Dressed for: A Wintry Weekend

Already Pretty outfit featuring black cowl neck tunic, red metallic yummie leggings, Frye Vera  Slouch boots, fringe handbag

Tunic – Exofficio Fionna (Christmas gift)
Leggings – Yummie by Heather Thompson Jade – also here
Boots – Frye Vera Slouch
Bag – Amazon/DIY (post here) – similar look
Earrings – Glass Gardensimilar

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.
