Holiday style on a blustery day

Has it ever gotten windy and blustery in Oregon lately. Whew! We went outside yesterday for a photo shoot and almost got blown away. So much for styling my hair before we went… The wind chill factor was making it several degrees colder than it actually was outside, so we didn’t last long before skedaddling back indoors where we finished the photo shoot in front of the Christmas tree with two fluffy kitties. One of whom seemed to be sitting just far enough away that we never got good photos of her. But the lazy fat cat, Bathsheba – otherwise known as Sheba – cooperated somewhat for some photos.

Not sure how all the fashion bloggers keep going all winter… More indoor photo shoots? Move to a warmer climate? I must know your secrets to winter fashion photo shoots! Hahaha.

Just know that the jacket is faux fur, the cat fur on my cat and satin skirt is real. Which the cats like to shed all over the place so I can be fashionably furry in an animal friendly way. Le sigh. I should appreciate that fact more than I do…

How to style your summer clothes for cold weather

Ever wanted to bring that wonderful summer style you love into fall or winter, but it’s too cold to wear it when the weather changes? Here are a few tips to on how to style your summer favs for fall and winter instead of pushing them to the back of the closet until the spring thaw begins. Hint, it’s all about the layers…

 

Black and white and silver all over

 

Layer up. Add scarves, coats, boots, hats, tights – whatever keeps you warm! I chose to wear a sleeveless maxi dress and didn’t remember to put on a pair of tights. But baby, it’s getting cold out there, so I could have used those tights as the weather is cooling down now in Oregon. Not quite winter weather yet, but upper 40’s are still a bit cold.

Wear a sweater over top of a dress so it looks more like a skirt – adds extra warmth and creates a new fall/winter look.

Depending on the dress, you can wear your dress as a tunic with leggings underneath + boots for added warmth. Or skinny jeans. Any pants that aren’t too bulky will work just fine.

Wear a long sleeved shirt underneath a sleeveless dress. I have one I was looking at thinking it would look good with the new ‘in’ trend of wearing shirts under sleeveless dresses or tops.

Wear a cardigan over the dress with a vest layered over top + tights and boots.

Maxi dresses are great for fall and winter – the longer length equals more warmth.

Wear shorts with thick tights and boots + layers on top for a fun fall look.

Mostly, it’s all about layering – over or under to get the warmth & style you need and want for the colder weather.
