Winter Warmth

Snow and falling temps call for warmer pieces, and in my case, lotsa layers! Let's be honest, I'd love to hibernate in my house and cozy up in sweatpants and a thermal until the weather breaks. However, since becoming a bear doesn't appear to be a promising career in my future, I guess I'll continue my full-time gig as a PR Manager.

So how do I stay warm during the winter months? One word, layers. I have a closet full of coats, very warm coats. What do I do? I carry my coats instead of wearing them–logical right? What can I say, I never professed myself to be a genius by any means. So in place of my coat, I find that layers are my best friend, which is exactly what I did with this look. Vests are my best friend in the winter, and you can't go wrong with a furry one. Tanks, long sleeves and bulky sweaters all help keep this non-coat wearing girl perfectly cold and ready to take on winter.

Is there anyone out there who, like me, loves coats but hates wearing them!? I just can't stand how I feel like the stay-puff marshmallow man in them, and then fight with getting them off in the car.
