White in my City

Can I say that I am more creative in pairing summer outfits (than winter outfits)… since I am from Northern India (New Delhi to be precise), where summers last up to 9 months, and hence my tolerance level for humidity is quite high! No wonder I managed to happily survive in Phoenix, Arizona for more than a year..
Anyways, so back to fashion – What I am saying is that sometimes I feel short of ideas while dressing up ‘these days’ (specially for work) since I have to get my creative juices flowing while also making sure that whatever outfit I come up with, should be new, keeps me warm and helps me avoid shivering. (Trust me, it’s a huge challenge in this girl’s life..!!)
Hence, I have come up with two formulas! (math always works, you know!) So these days my go-to dressing includes –

  1. A camisole + a warm turtleneck top + Skinny Jeansa vest + a warm over-sized long coat
  2. A basic (thin) button down or a collared t-shirt + an over-sized superbly warm sweater + Skinny Jeans + a puffer jacket
| Plus |
a scarfleather gloves and snow-proof comfortable boots/shoes! Oh, not to forget I also like to add a chunky watch and a quirky slash neutral bag (depending on the outfit), and there you go! I am ready to be taken anywhere..!! (mind you – all this dressing takes less than 6 minutes)!!

Just like that – it’s so simple. Also please note that this formula works for the casual day outfits only! It obviously does not includes dresses or skirts or shorts (since I am giving them a rest till spring!!)..
So I follow these two formulas and my winter layering never goes wrong. I don’t shiver, I don’t feel cold and I don’t jump around like a goofball wanting to run indoors.. (a girl gotta have her gears on, you see!)
On that note, I think it’s safe to say that I am officially obsessed with over-sized chunky sweaters ‘these days’ (remember I am a summer person..?). They feel so cozy, and so warm, I feel helpless not wearing them over and over again! Do you also have a certain piece (or style) of garment that you are obsessed with? (tell me..tell me..)
Also when I say layering is the key, you have to think creatively! Nobody wants to wear the same old boring stuff.
My advice – Pastels look so, so good in winters too! Include different colors and textures in your outfit. Wear white (like me here).
For instance a leather vest (like this) or a denim vest (like this) looks cool with a wool blended coat! Want to take a bolder route? Opt for sequins (like this one) and color-blocked coats (love this one)!
Tell me everything you have to say.. Or we can always connect on my Facebook page.

These pictures were taken on a cloudy day right after a heavy snowfall. I love how they came out! I must say – GM does an amazing job at playing the role of a fashion blogger’s husband/photographer! Thank you and love you hubbs!!!!

Cheers!
