Forgive the delay in posts, readers; we’ve been digging out of a winter blizzard over here! The snow is up to my height in many parts of the city, which is saying a lot because I normally wear pretty tall heels. As we slowly dig our way out, I send my thoughts to all those who are snowed in and/or lost power. Winter builds quite the fortitude in all of us. This is my black and white, and a blizzard, look. Let no amount of snow get you down!
Button down: Burberry (gift)
Blazer: Kensie via Savers ($3, retails for $89)
Skirt: Halogen via Nordstrom Rack ($13 marked down from $80)
Tights: Simply Vera via Kohl’s ($2 marked down from $16)
Shoes: Made by Elves via Savers ($6, retail for approx $110)
Fashion Huntress tips:
1) In keeping with my blazer love, I also keep a short sleeve blazer around, even in winter. I don’t know about anybody else, but I often get just a little too warm some days if I’m in too many layers while indoors (outdoors is clearly another story!). So, I keep a long sleeve and short sleeve blazer at my desk in order to layer up or layer down. There are soooo many blazers at thrift stores and charity shops. Most of the time, they are great quality. So, if you’re in the market for a blazer, I definitely recommend starting at your local thrift and/or charity shop.
2) A white down is another wardrobe essential. I have two that I have ready at any given time. They match just about everything and add instant formality to any look. I used to have just one, but then that one would often sit in a dry cleaning bag…and well, you know how it goes. So, I now like to have two, in order to ensure that at least one is clean at any given time. As with any white tops, I always wear a t-shirt underneath in order to prevent staining of your button down. Trust me on this one- it really helps ensure the longevity of your top!
Anyone else have white button down tips? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! I appreciate it so very much!

:)!! Thanks for reminding me to share! http://www.savers.com/
Savers is chain thrift store that sends a portion of their proceeds to a local charity- it’s sort-of a hybrid thrift/charity shop :)~!!

I am obsessed with this skirt shape lately and you look stunning in it! Totally blizzard worthy:)
Super cute! I love the skirt and stockings 🙂
LOVE the blazer. Next time you see a cute blazer in a thrift store, just send it my way please?? 😀
Gorgeous outfit dear! You find the most amazing pieces! I love that pleated skirt as I have the same one in blue and I love how I can dress it up or down, definitely a winning piece! Have a great day love! xo~ Lena
I love that you have the same one!!! Great minds think alike-!
Creative layering!! I so want that skirt!! Cute look! 🙂
I’m so impressed with how cute you look despite the crazy snow! We’re getting lots of snow here and I’ve been so lazy in the fashion department. Thanks for the inspiration!
for some reason your outfit reminds me of Mary Poppins, in a good & modern way! 🙂 i LOVE it, the pleated skirt most especially! and i hope you’ll stay safe! (i don’t know how late i am in reading this post though… but still!)
ahahaha I love the Mary Poppins reference!
Very useful tip! I have found that I am dying of heat every time I try to layer and love the short sleeve sweater look.
Whereas we were promised a blizzard but it don’t come…just as well, as the blizzard outfit I had planned wasn’t half as cute as yours. PJs don’t count. Must try harder. 🙂
I love a great striped skirt! That one has a great sheen to it, just the right amount of glamour.
Thanks for the skirt love, readers!! XO
