Lauren and Sam twins from Texas

Cold Gold

Sweater: Asos // Skirt, Tights: Banana Republic // Shoes: Nine West via Endless // Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

Well, after our long warm-up, I figured that the cold weather was in my rearview mirror. But boy was I wrong! We've had some chilly days, and I even had to break out my coat again. Luckily, pulling a pair of tights out of my drawer is all it takes for me to take this look from spring back to winter.

Skirt and boots

Today's outfit involves a skirt that I have owned for over seven years, and I keep coming back to it year after year because it's such a classic. I got this miniskirt, thickly woven into a black and white checkerboard pattern, as a Christmas present my freshman year of college. Over the years, I have dressed it up with heels and down with flats and riding boots.

This look is all about staying comfortably warm on a chilly, but not freezing, day. I've had this knit skirt since high school, and I love how soft and cozy it is. The low neckline of this sweater pretty much makes wearing a scarf mandatory--the difference that even a thin scarf makes never ceases to amaze me. Finally, a pair of tights keeps my legs plenty warm, despite many of my male students' insistence that this could not possibly be true.

My Favorite Things

This outfit is composed of items that I am a total sucker for: tie-neck tops, pleats, bows, lace-up shoes, and textured tights.
