outfit post: white button down shirt, black sweater, grey pants, leopard belt, black flats

Where I wore this - Minnesota client workshop Day 2

Post 3/6 - Here's what I wore the second day of Minnesota Polar Vortex configuration workshops. Again I went with layering to stay warm. White thermal undershirt, white button down, black sweater and fun leopard belt. On the bottom I wore fleece tights, wool socks, wool pants and black flats.

Occasionally the tops of my feet would show between my pants and my pants and you would see my furry socks which looked a little weird. Not necessarily the best winter shoes. But with the socks & tights they worked well enough for my short battles with outdoor conditions. I don't think they would have been practical choices for any sort of extended walking outside but were fine for my quick runs to and from the car.

  1. Love this look! Really cute layering the button up and sweater with the belt over it. Just looks really nice and you could do so many different combos with that "formula"

    1. Thanks! I totally agree! Love "formulas" that take the thinking out of getting dressed!

  2. How do you combat the lumpy look and feel when layering a button down under a sweater? I've heard about wearing a camisole over the button down, but that is just plain uncomfortable to me.

    1. I think, for me, in order for the layering to be comfortable, it has to do with making sure the inside shirt is fitted enough (my button down is cut pretty close the the body) with a thinner fabric and the top sweater is roomier with a heavier fabric. Otherwise they bunch and move and run around my body in weird ways.

  3. I love this outfit!


    I have to say, KUDOS to you for dressing so nicely in that weather. I live in NY and have had a hard time looking pretty on the polar vortex days (not that today is any better, at a fabulous 10°F).
    Also, quite brave to wear wool socks with those flats. I hardly ever wear flats, bc I have noticed how even after nylons some of my flats end up fitting me like a boat in the summer - in the summer I wear those tiny heel covers that I can't remember what they are called,b ut you can't even tell you are wearing anything at all.

    I also want to mention, I visit your blog religiously every day and this is the first time I comment. I filled your survey and requested an easier platform to comment and I'm now thinking it was all the restrictions on my browser, as I am using a different one today and you even allow Anon comments.

    1. Thank you so much!! I think if I lived where you do - I would own more weather appropriate footwear. I was just trying to make do with what I already owned. :)

      I'm glad to hear that the commenting is working better! :)

  4. Do you do anything in particular to keep the belt in place for outfits like this? Every time I try doing something similar, I end up with the belt moving a ton, and it ends up looking weird.

    1. I do end up fussing with the belt quite a bit when I wear them on the outside of my clothes. It's annoying which is why I don't do it too often. But the outfit wasn't as cute without the belt so I put up with it for a little fun print in my life. :)

  5. Great look! Love how you added the leopard belt!

  6. What type of thermal undershirts did you buy that were light enough to layer under 2 other layers? And where did you find the fleece leggings? I need a pair! Glad you stayed warm!!

    1. The shirts were from Target and felt almost like athletic fabric. They were pretty breathable. (It was pretty cold in our meeting - there was ice on the INSIDE of the conference room window - so that helped.) And the fleece tights were Steve Madden brand that I bought off Amazon.
