Adrien: Stealth Layers.

More layer talk, but this time I'm talking about my main struggle with getting dressed in the winter. I just want to start by saying I'm cold. All the time. I am always astonished when I see folks walking the halls around here in short sleeves and open toed shoes because I AM COLD.

I also have this thing where I can't wear wool next to my skin, so what do I do when the dress I want to wear is sleeveless, and the cardigan I want to wear it with is wool? Enter: tissue-weight tees. My godsend. The outfit I'm wearing today includes a long-sleeved tissue tee worn under the dress but you'd probably never know it. I do this a lot, just so I can stretch my wardrobe and also not end up like a shivery poodle at work. So:


My friend Lisa has this dress too and suggested I should try my new belt with it. I think it works:

dress: Banana Republic (similar)
cardigan: Banana Republic (similar)
belt: Linea Pelle (similar)
boots: Frye Tina Campus (similar)
bag: Michael Michael Kors Large Camo satchel


  1. Here's how it's going to go down: I'm going to magically shrink my body to your elfin dimensions and you're going to hand this entire outfit over to me. Capiche?

  2. Yay! I'm glad you tried it. I looks great. How funny that I almost wore this dress today, too. Chicago weather made my desired shoe or boot choices not possible.

  3. I thought the dress came with that belt... what a great match!
