Lovely Layers for the First Day of Winter

Happy first day of winter! I’m welcoming the new season in light layers because it’s only moderately cold today. Yass! I’ll be running some last-minute holiday errands throughout the day, so I wanted a look that was cozy and chic. I opted, then, for some J.Crew-style layering. And, guess what? If you’ve been eying any of these J.Crew layers, they’re so affordable right now at sale-on-sale pricing.

J.Crew layers

Stripe top | Chambray tunic | Ankle-zip leggings | Jade Coat | Suede flats

Mud cloth clutch c/o | Mac “Rebel” lipstick

The cozy stripe top has a high funnelneck which keeps your neck loosely covered. If you find turtlenecks tight, this style is a great alternative.

I layered mine over a my chambray tunic (on sale). I saw the stripe top styled similarly in a J.Crew lookbook.

Y’all know I love leggings, right? Well, I finally tried J.Crew’s ankle-zip leggings. I was pleasantly surprised by the amazing fit. I assumed they would be tight and stiff, but they’re stretchy and comfy. They’re a lighter weight than I expected, but quite nice overall.

Before you get alarmed by my ankles being exposed, remember it’s fairly warm today. Lol. I would normally complete this look with ankle boots, but these suede flats are appropriate (weather-wise) today, and the pop of color was welcomed.

    You look so beaut, the pop of red in contrast with the blue of the shirt and the nautical lines is stunning.
