There’s no denying it I’m a clotheshorse. Not only is my closet packed to the gills but I’ve got tubs of clothes under the bed, in the crawlspace, and in the spare bedroom. Why do I need so many clothes you ask? Well, Vermont has four very distinct and different seasons and I need a wardrobe for each… at least this is how I rationalize it. So when Seven Days asked me to put together three winter weather looks the hardest part was narrowing down my choices. Vintage Jacket: Downtown Threads, Scarf: Italy, Knit Dress: Goodwill, Tights: The Sox Market, Boots: Vintage Vintage Coat: Saver’s, Blouse, Belt (not pictured) & Skirt: Goodwill, Tights: The Sox Market, Booties: Old NavyHat: Forever 21, Vest & Flannel: Battery St Jeans, Sweater: Bass, Chambray Shirt: Goodwill, Jeans: Hurley (via Plato’s Closet), Boots: Matt Bernson (via Dear Lucy)
My philosophy on surviving winter in Vermont is pretty simple; layer, layer, layer. In the look above I’m wearing a whopping 6 layers: a tank, long sleeve shirt, chambray button up, sweater, hooded flannel coat, and down vest. Needless to say I was sweating during the shoot but on a chilly day in February I’d be warm and toasty. I don’t let the winter weather rob me of my style and neither should you.
