Layering Secrets


I'm sooooo glad to be back from St. Louis.  The conference itself was awesome, but the night I flew back our plane circled the San Diego airport for nearly 30 minutes unable to land due to fog.  Finally, they said, "We can't land in San Diego, so we're going to LA.  We'll touch down in 25 min."  This was at 10:45pm, and the LA airport is a 2.5 hour drive from San Diego.  I was NOT a happy camper.  

Needless to say, I'm so so so so glad to be back.  I'm also glad to not be sick--I was sick the entire week before the conference.  Sick + travel = bad blogging (and life) mojo for 2 weeks.  

I'm nearly sweating just looking at this outfit.  It's an 80 degree week here (ridiculous!) but I wore this in Northern California to see my sister in a production of A Christmas Carol over the holidays.  With temps in the 30s, I layered this dress with two of my favorite pieces to layer with: a thin HEATTECH from Uniqlo and fleece-lined tights.  If you don't have pieces similar to either of these, I highly recommend them!

  9. Oh man, I thought you were going to stay you were stuck in St. Louis because of the horrible weather the Midwest has been having!

    I really like the look of that jacket with your dress. Did you keep the jacket on indoors or take it off?

  10. I kept the jacket in, but took off the scarf. I had to wear another coat over it all when we were walking outside. I'm not tough enough to do temps in the 30s with just a thin heattech and fake leather jacket. :)

  14. Oh, I'm such a sucker for anything that's layered. I keep my classroom extra cool in the winter as an excuse to layer up as much as possible. I love the black and blue combo and the edgier jacket. I'm definitely going to try to recreate this one!
