Nothing is more fun than birthday parties. I headed out to help celebrate my pal Kylee’s birthday a few Saturdays ago at a local place called Little Miss Whiskey’s (LMW). The challenge with going out in cold weather is always figuring out what to wear so that you don’t look like a football player when you leave the house (a la 1980s/90s Starter Jackets). I created an outfit based on the goal that I didn’t want to have to bulk up. The choice of a shirt dress and tights were pretty straightforward. It may look more cold to wear a dress but I find that tights keep you way warmer than pants or jeans. Next, I added this long sweater shawl. It doubled as a “completer” piece for the outfit and my outwear for the night (I just added a scarf and hat for the walk I made to LMW). I felt surprisingly warm during the walk and also very comfortable when I stepped indoors – the best of both worlds!
…And of course a party outfit wouldn’t qualify as a party outfit without large pieces of statement jewelry and accessories, now would it?! The bigger, the more gold, and the more blingy, the better!
