I've never been a huge fan of winter. Which is a major reason why I moved to California, no rain, no snow! Although snow is beautiful, and the thought of cozying up by a fire place sounds desirable, brutal winter temperatures have never been my thing. To add to the frustration of being cold, its honestly hard to find something stylish to wear while trying to stay warm at the same time - the two just don't go together ( I know I can't be the only one who thinks this).
Well in true Californian fashion, for vacation my friends and I decided to go to Colorado for a ski trip ( I guess we see the sun too much). The thought of a ski trip sounded fun, but as we got closer to the date, I found myself in a quandary because I had no idea what I should wear.
Im not a fan of heavy sweaters, being petite, it makes me look large and they don't look the best on my body type -so I decided to layer. For this look in particular, I threw on my favorite wool duster coat, its also trend relevant. For my pants I found some really great, thick winter leggings to keep me warm. My turtleneck was fitted, even though I layered a few tanks under it, I tied my flannel top around my waist just in case I got cold. I finished the look off with a tonal blanket scarf around my neck and a men's trapper hat I came across while shopping at Urban Outfitters. Since decided to channel different levels of black, I added a red lip for a pop of color. I was bundled up in style, and managed to steer clear of frumpiness!
