So because it's winter and only thirty degrees outside, I have another winter outfit to show. For this outfit I kept a very simple base and added interest with what else: a cute beanie and scarf!
On this day, I just used it as a base with a short winter olive green parka over it.
This is my go-to winter coat when the temperatures are above twenty five degrees. It's either this, or a puffer vest. I bought this coat a season or two ago from Old Navy.
My beanie is one of the new ones I bought this season from JCPenney. It has metallic gold threads woven through and the cutest fur pom pom on top I ever did see!
My scarf is also from JCP and I last showed it to you HERE. The sweater is from Express.
It's a very figure flattering sweater. You can play with the length to create a silhouette that fits your needs. Here is a back view so you can see how open it is and how easy it would be to pull the sweater down over one shoulder if you want a sexy look.
I carried my metallic gold back that my daughter gave me as a gift.
I finally punched more holes in my over-the-knee boot straps so that they will stay up a little better. It did help, but still not staying up as much as I'd like.
I just love how you can use cute hats and scarves to dress up the simplest of outfits. My base is just a black sweater and jeans, but the hat, scarf, boots, and bag really make it pop!
Have a Great Day! Amy

Loving that red beanie on you! You look so nice and bundled up! Hope you have a fabulous weekend, Amy!ReplyDelete
Trendy & Tidy
Oh Amy, with your pretty face you do hats so well! That really is a versatile sweater, it looks great with those jeans and with the option of the sexy shoulder you could wear it just about anywhere, but make sure you wrap up well when you go out in those sub-zero temps!ReplyDelete
Aww, you're so sweet! Yes, I wouldn't wear this sweater without a coat since the back is so open!Delete
Amy, you look like a sweet little red riding hood. Cute outfit. Love that you can change it as you want with adding different accessories. Btw, I agree with you on the seasons. If I lived in California, I'd be thinking spring too, but up here is going to be bitter cold for a while. Bloggers need to be proactive and share their ideas, but it bugs me that outlet stores start selling swimsuits in early March and you can't find a coat to buy to save your life. It's not like I'll be going to Lake Michigan for a swim in March, lol.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much! Totally agree! I think it's the bloggers who live in warmer states that rush forward to the next season so quickly. The rest of us who have to live in the cold longer aren't in such a hurry.Delete
I mean, I wouldn't mind Spring to come sooner, but setting out swimsuits in February is not going to help the cause. Enjoy your weekend, Amy!Delete
I'm loving the red beanie, and the cut of your sweater! Such a cute and cozy winter look!ReplyDelete
Hallelujah! I hear you on the season thing. I wish it was almost spring, but I fully believe we will have way more snow before that happens! Love this cute winter look and your layers!ReplyDelete
Thanks Laura! You're a Wisconsin gal like me, so you know how long our winter's are!Delete
You look cozy and adorable! Thanks so much for linking up with Fun Fashion Friday!ReplyDelete

Life is just Rosie
Thanks so much!Delete
Uh-oh..you may not want to visit my last post! It was 78 degrees over the weekend here in CA, so it doesn't make sense to bundle up here when it's that warm outside just to stay with the winter season :) But I respect your opinion! I also love this cozy look :) I wish it were that cold here!ReplyDelete
You must have misunderstood. I don't dress for the calendar, I dress for the weather. What drives me nuts is when women rush seasons and wear clothes that are inappropriate for the current weather conditions. If it's 78 degrees, I can guarantee you I'd have shorts and flip and flops on no matter what the calendar said!Delete
I have been going in and out of Season regardless of weather just because I get bored with jeans and sweaters! Haha! I used to live in Florida and wore shorts year round. I remember taking blog pictures in Winter with a sweater and sweating so bad just for those outfit posts. It makes me laugh thinking about it....anyways I love your cozy Winter look and I still break out my beanies and scarves to keep warm!ReplyDelete
Thank you! That's so funny about taking pictures in Florida with sweaters, I notice a lot of warm weather bloggers do that and it cracks me up!Delete
I understand trying to plan ahead, but I have to agree with you on the "spring styles". I like to be more realistic with the weather and my outfits!! We are lucky, here in Denver, that we have many warmer days even in the winter---but I still have my legs & feel covered, LOL!ReplyDelete
Thanks Jodie! You're so fortunate to live in Denver. Such a beautiful area. If I lived there, I'd be hiking in the mountains every weekend!Delete
