Bundled Up

Hello! These photos were taken a few days ago. And let me just say, I was in no way prepared to face the cold, windy weather in Philadelphia. While in Richmond over winter break, the weather was very mild and it didn't even get cold enough to receive a sprinkling of snow. 

That is not the case here in Philadelphia. It's freezing and quite windy outside and I am immediately taken aback by the cold weather the second that I step outside. I definitely took the moderate winter weather in Richmond for granted and am desperately wishing and hoping that the weather here does not get any colder. Now, enough of my complaining about the weather and more about the outfit:

To face the cold weather, I bundled up in several cozy layers. I started this look with a unique printed dress. I threw on a burnt orange cardigan over the dress and layered a cream-colored faux fur jacket over that. 

Over top of the jacket, I slipped on a vintage vest. This suede, orange vest from the seventies has me swooning. In particular, I adore the suede and knit texture of the vest as well as the distinct hippie vibe that the vest emits. 

I also layered a neutral knit scarf with the look. The layering of different textures against my printed dress in this look portrays a very free-spirited, bohemian image that I'm absolutely in love with. To play up the boho-hippie look even further, I paired several golden necklaces with the look. Recently, I cannot stop obsessing over how much I love wearing multiple necklaces together. It creates a distinct stylish look that I cannot get enough of. 

It was freezing cold out so I slipped a pair of fleece lined leggings underneath the dress followed by a pair of black Doc Martens. Red lipstick added the final touch to the look.
