OOTD

This work outfit pairs an A-line tan leather skirt with a royal blue waterfall cardigan, one of the trend items I bought this fall. I don’t like long tails of the cardigan hanging around loosely. They easily look sloppy and add a couple of pounds. Thus, I belted the cardigan. The knit is very thin. Thus, wearing a shirt underneath would be too cold. Therefore I wore a cotton cardigan from summer (here) as a top.

Outerwear outfit

I had chosen black tights to the OOTD instead of tan or blue tights. Recall the tights become part of the outerwear unless you wear a long coat (Style lesson here). A long coat is not a great idea after a night of fresh snowfall. It will just plow the snow. Who needs that? Not to mention, the snow melts inside, and the coat gets wet,and you will get cold once you go outside with that wet coat.

I wore my red peacoat again paired with my tan brim hat, black gloves and booties with boot toppers. Boot toppers are such a great way to style an outfit for outside. Not to mention they add an extra layer of insulation to the feet. See here for a review.
