Before the clothing police knock on my door, I do want to point out that I am at home in these photos. This is pretty much what I wear, my stijl around the house during the winter: A cozy baggy sweater, leggings, and butt/back coverage, which in this case is a skirt. I wear leggings a lot while at home, because this is where I do most of my stretches and relaxation.
Contrary to what you might think based on what you see on À LA MODEST, I actually wear jeans and sneakers a lot. I was never really a jeans-and-sneakers kind of person in the past. Being a girl who likes to move a lot now, it’s necessary to wear comfortable clothes. I like wearing statement coats and scarves on top of casual clothes, just to mask the whole laid back and lazy look with something more put together.
Winter is a time when many of us are feeling sad and lonely, regardless of circumstance. I find myself feeling most vulnerable on winter nights—the combination of cold weather and early darkness just tears me down. I am mostly introverted, but when the sun goes down, I am often needing and wanting company.
I don’t know about you, but I like to think of New Year’s Eve in three colors—gold, silver, and multicolor. Okay, the multicolor part was cheating. You know what I mean though. Not a solid color dress! Here are some last minute tips on what color(s) you might want to opt for your New Year’s Eve party tonight.
Scarves to me are the ultimate accessory. You can wear them in so many different ways. They also protect you from the cold and harsh winds of winter. I remember a few years ago when my husband and I went around the streets of Chicago in early February, I was wearing this very scarf on my face, covering everything but my eyes! I don’t remember why we chose Chicago in the dead of winter. It might’ve been a tempting Groupon offer, but this scarf definitely was a lifesaver!
