Baby, It’s Cold Outside

When Floridians hear the words “hard freeze” or “freeze warning” they dust off the heat dials  on their thermostats and hide out in their homes to avoid the cold.  Me, being forever a Boston Girl at heart will always love and welcome a cold front while living in the Sunshine State.

I welcome the opportunities to dress up in layers for this kind of weather.  However, layering on a bigger body can always prove to be a bit tricky.  You don’t want to appear bigger than you actually are so I’ve learned some tricks over the years to avoid the bulk.

When I wear a chunky knit I opt for a thin sleeveless dress shirt to wear underneath.  It doesn’t take much for me to get too warm so I try to minimize bulk by avoiding long sleeved dress shirts with long sleeved knits.  I remain comfortable but still have the appearance of layering with the collar visible.


This satchel is my new favorite bag.  The structure and design is perfect for keeping my things in order and I love to be able to place a bag down and not worry about it losing it’s shape.  It’s from Shop Lately which some of you may know is an online market place where you can find tons of products from designers and brands in one place!
