Outfit: Red, White, and Warm

blazer (very old, similar here and here) // turtleneck // skirt // tights // wellies // beanie
Who says you can’t wear bright colors in winter? As I begin to think about how I am going to pack seven months of clothing in two suitcases (it’s like picking your favorite children!), I am also thinking about how I can make my clothes work through multiple seasons. Figuring out how to layer or “winterize” will save me money (let’s just say I don’t have a lot of winter clothes) and packing space.
I was a bit skeptical about how this outfit would turn out. I have always loved how my favorite red fluted skirt looks with this nautical striped blazer, but was unsure that I could make it winter-time appropriate. I have purchased a couple plain turtlenecks and tights in the hopes they would layer well under what I already own. I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked the turtleneck and tights layered underneath! I topped the outfit with my go-to wellies (the packable kind) and, believe it or not, my very first beanie. I think I am officially a beanie believer.
I am sure the rest of the country is not loving this fall’s crazy chilly temps, but it has proven to be great practice for me and has been super helpful for figuring out what will work this winter in Florence.
Hope everyone eats too much tomorrow and enjoys their long holiday weekend!
