Anyone who lives in the south knows that layering is a must when “winter” hits. How are we supposed to dress cute when the high is going to be in the 80s all week with a low in the 40s?? Even for me, it is a daily struggle trying to figure out what exactly to wear when our weather is all over the place. I’ve partnered with Nordstrom today to show you all how we can easily look stylish and put together when the weather is all over the place!
Being in Texas 30 years of my life, I’ve definitely figured out the best way to strategically layer without breaking the bank. In the past, I would stock up on summer and winter clothing because it would essentially be lasting me all year long. At that point, I was left with so many clothes that weren’t worn; more of them heavy winter wear. This is the first winter that I’ve actually tried to plan out an easy capsule wardrobe of affordable basics that will easily transition to warmer weather each day.
As most of you have noticed, my go-to look this “winter” would have to be a tank, a cozy cardigan, skinny jeans and boots or heels of some kind. Why? Because it’s easy and honestly, you really can’t tell if these looks are super high end or extremely affordable. That’s why I love it! You can literally look put together without spending a fortune. This entire look was under $500, including the boots and the handbag and these are pieces I have easily been able to mix and match with other looks throughout the season.
If you’re in the same predicament and aren’t too sure of how to layer without wearing too much or too little I have added a few scrollers of some of my favorite, affordable and higher end pieces that can easily be layered for the bi-polar weather.
Let’s start with an essential – Cardigans
