What NYC Recessionista Wears: winter layers

Dressing cute during the Polar Vortex is virtually impossible … and it becomes all about the layering. So yesterday, I threw a sweater on over one of my favorite dresses and hoped for the best.

Earrings by NansGlam on Etsy (similar) / Primma Donna necklace / J. Crew Factory sweater / Tucker for Target dress (similar) / rose gold watch c/o Caravelle by Bulova (similar) / labradorite ring c/o Gilt (similar) / Madewell leggings / Clarks motorcycle boots (similar)

I do this all the time, and encourage all y’all to try it — if you have a dress in your closet that you love, why not make it do double duty and turn it into a skirt, too?  Just throw a sweater on over it and voila.

I love that the green in the necklace is so unexpected against the pink and picks up the color of the leaves in the dress.

This necklace is MAJOR and it was only $22.99!

When it’s 9 degrees outside, this is about the dressiest that you’re going to get from me 🙂
