Staying warm and looking chic in frigid temps

Ok guys.. It’s cold outside. Like really cold. Like it’s -2 out. I can’t even deal.

Holy moly. Talk about Arctic tundra.

However, unlike the blissful high school days (as Adam Sandler would say.. STAAAY AS LONG AS YOU CAAAAN) the majority of us still have to get up and come to work today, no matter how cold it is. Just because it’s cold out doesn’t mean we can bundle up in our casual layers. We still have to dress up. So how do we do it and still remain frugally chic?

I’m a huge fan of vests, and love belting one with a pencil skirt for a chic yet warm look:

So how do you do it? I looked to one of my favorite blogs, Capitol Hill Style for some inspiration:

Mixing textures is the way to go with this look. My Express sweater is grey, white and black, with a red quilted vest and a leopard belt. I originally paired this look with pumps but then thought, ‘Self, its 0 degrees out and there is snow on the ground – go with booties.’
