Living in Chicago, where each season only lasts a few months, people quickly learn to shop with careful deliberation.  Could this tartan flannel work around the waist in the Summer and layered all Winter?  Would these ankle boots work with a floral dress in the Spring and heavy knits in the Fall?

This Zara dress was a favorite of mine over the Summer (shown here) and I’m almost loving it more transitioned for the (much) colder weather.  I wore a simple black turtleneck and black leggings underneath the dress.

Some key pieces you need for layering under things in the winter are: fitted turtlenecks, long and lightweight button down shirts, leather leggings, jeggings and boots

Happy Layering & Happy New Year to you and yours!  

Oh and btw…I’m selling these Tom Ford sunglasses so if anyone is interested, email me at
