Battling cold weather in a skirt
Much like dresses, I consider skirts one of the most comfortable pieces of clothing a girl can wear. And if done right, one of the warmest too.
For this outfit I chose one of my personal winter staples: My black, wool-blend, high-waist, knee-length, bubble-hem skirt I made out of a 6 euro Bershka dress almost two years ago. I'm almost ashamed to admit it, but elastic waists rule! That skirt is so versatile and comfortable, it's a miracle I don't wear it 7 days a week.
This time I added a grey V-neck cotton sweater (cotton means no itchiness) and my extra-long green wool cardigan (yes, the same one I have in purple-red as well).
And two scarves.
You've probably seen me doing the double scarf thing before in this blog, but in this case it's more out of necessity than looks. I needed one scarf to cover up my shoulders and chest and one other to create some sort of a solid barrier around my neck. Something I can stick half of my head into when the cold wind gets too sharp for my liking, if you know what I mean. If you don't, just scroll back to the first picture of this post.
Another tip coming up here... As I mentioned, my cardi is really long. Which is a good thing, as the longer it is, the more fabric to keep me warm. However, that also means it keeps peeping out from underneath my coat's hem. Not good, but easy to correct. I simply button it up and make it sit on my hips. No peeking allowed!
And speaking of a coat, it was the turn of my favourite green Attrattivo coat to make an appearance.
Warm as toast!
