Winter brings the promise of so many things that I like. First of all, classes are over for the semester. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my chest now that there are no more deadlines to worry about for nearly a month. Even better, I am home in Connecticut with all my friends and my family- my biggest worry is what to ask for for my birthday in January! The only thing that remotely requires any higher thinking is what to wear when getting dressed in the morning so that we are prepared to face the brisk cold winter air of the east coast, yet not sweat to death when walking into over-heated buildings like when we’re shopping.
The answer to this fashion conundrum is layers, as beautifully sported by this Westport-native Fashionista found doing some holiday shopping downtown. She wore a black ANM button down blouse with a furry vest from Ann Taylor Loft, and then on top, she wore her trusty Barbour Beldale coat. On the bottom, she wore Paige blue denim jeans with a Lucky Brand leather belt, and Cole Haan x Nike Air black leather boots. As for accessories, she donned a Cartier Roadster watch, a David Yurman bangle, a hand-made ring with yellow topaz (her birth stone), a gold Jennifer Zuener necklace with her initals “ANB” on it, as well as brand new Persol aviators. She also recently got a manicure with a resort-shade of pink- “Knockout Pout” by Essie.
Despite the crisp temperatures, we have yet to see any snow. All of the Fashionistas are waiting with breathe that is baited for the first sign of snow fall, so that we can really put our ability to layer to the test!
