This outfit was built for warmth! I woke up that morning to hear that the temperatures in DC were hovering around 19 degrees F. I worried. I started rummaging around my room looking for something to keep me from freezing on the bus. I pulled out my favorite, warmest sweater and got to work compiling an outfit.
You can’t see it in the photos, but there’s a lot going on under the surface. I’ve got on a thin thermal tee shirt beneath this sweater; while it is one of my warmest, I knew I’d need a little something extra. And under the skirt? Thermal long-johns covered with thick black leggings.
The neckline of the sweater means I don’t have to wear a necklace with it, but I picked cute little earrings that pretty much work with everything I own, except maybe the formal wear.
Boots. These boots are not necessarily warm, but they can be when you layer them with two pairs of thick socks. It took me a few minutes to loosen the laces on these so I could fit my sock-covered feet back into them.
