Cords and Layers Get Cozy

Yesterday I took my current favorite formula, button-up + sweater/sweatshirt + cords, and dressed it up a little with heels and some sparkle. Today I'm using the same formula but for a much more casual day. For my top layer, I swapped out the classic sweater for a much cozier polka dot sweatshirt. I kicked my heels to the proverbial curb and traded them for my much-loved taupe ankle boots. This look keeps the same balance of classic and whimsical as yesterday's outfit, but with a much more relaxed vibe.

While this outfit is totally appropriate for my casual office, it's just as suitable for a day spent reading and sipping hot cocoa. Although the former is what actually happened, I see some of the latter in my future during the holidays! I can't wait!




Polka dot sweatshirt: Loft / chambray shirt: Madewell / red cords: Gap / taupe ankle boots: Target

I'm linking up with The Creative Closet for today's "Snowed In" theme. What would you wear for a cozy day at home?

  2. So cozy cute for cocoa sipping at the holidays! Here's hoping for some time to do that in my world next week too (though when you're visiting your parents, and your in-laws live in the same city, as well as tons of your extended family, the holidays don't tend to have all that much sitting around, sadly...). I love that we're red pants twins on these - the extra bright red is so great for this month right? And I can steal your cute outfit ideas.

  3. Brightly-colored denim + trousers are a great way to add some punch to your closet. :) And the red is super festive!
