Cozied Up

Hello! Yesterday, temperatures dipped into the thirties here in Philadelphia. Brrrr! I took that opportunity to bundle up in a cozy scarf and several layers. I styled my look around this black and white polka dot, body-con dress. First, I layered a gray, long-sleeved crop top over the dress to add a bit of warmth. For even more warmth, I threw on my black faux leather jacket. My look was cozied up even further when I threw on a thick knit scarf in a deep purple color. 

Of course, my legs needed a bit of coverage so I grabbed a pair of black opaque tights and layered a pair of gray and white polka dot socks over my black tights. I slipped on my Doc Martens and let the polka dot socks peek through. I have a major weakness for patterns and I would say that one of my favorite patterns would definitely be polka dots; they are just so classic and timeless. 

Overall, this look is probably one of my favorite looks in a while. The color palette consisting of blacks and grays with a pop of deep purple absolutely has me swooning. I find darker colors such as grays, blacks and plums much more aesthetically pleasing than bright colors. And winter is the perfect season to break out a wardrobe full of dark, moody colors. The layering in this look also really appeals to me. There is just something about layering that I cannot resist; I love combining different textures/fabrics, colors, prints, patterns, shapes, etc.
