Pink and blush have gotten under my skin (I’m in love with my cashmere blush sweater), and I’ve wonder what the reason is. I think most of us, or at least the “us” who tend to wear a lot of neutrals, have been starved for color. And this season’s particular shade of pink is a safe neutral that works well with other neutrals.

So I’ve embraced the blush trend wholeheartedly and love styling my pink and blush pieces with this season’s other great trend – ripped jeans.

Double Up: How to layer for winter

I’m always looking for new ways to layer for winter. One of my new favorite style hacks is to layer on two jackets. Here I’ve taken two coats, from two different seasons, and paired them for a casual winter style. Underneath, I’m wearing a cotton army green jacket, and I’ve topped it off with a wool army green coat. It’s a more stylish version of the three-seasons-in-one jackets popular with the outdoorsy types.

To complete the casual, laid back look, I’m wearing double-gore suede booties. They are super easy on a lazy day and weekend, because they just pull on, and there are no laces to get in the way. And I’ve completed the outfit with rolled-up boyfriend jeans.

how to style black leather leggings like a bloggerI’m a firm believer in the power of layering for winter. And since I’m already starting to get bored from my winter uniform of a mama-bear down parka, I decided to winterize my faux leather leggings. Leather leggings and a moto jacket are pieces I would wear during transitional weather. So to make them winter-proof, I added lots of layers – a cashmere sweater, a cashmere scarf, and a chunky hat.

Easy Does It: Casual Cold Weather Staples

I live in the Northeast, so I spend half the year in the cold. So I have a few cold weather staples that help me get though winter. A warm hat is essential. During the winter I really don’t care what my hair looks like. Keeping warm is more important to me, so I need my warm hat. I also have a selection of parkas that I’ve collected over the years: two down ones and one lined with fur (the one in this post). And mastering the art of layering is also essential.

Here I’ve layered a t-shirt, with a checkered shirt, with a cashmere sweater, with a parka, and topped it off with a chunky hat.
