Blogs I Love - Cupcakes & Cashmere

The best mix of beauty, fashion and food - the three loves of my life. 

Jan 20, 2014

Such beauty in scenery photos and images remind me of how magical life can be. Snow sitting on winter leaves. Twinkling lights enveloping a walkway. It’s the little things that amaze me. Always be grateful for the things that you have and the world around you. Work hard for the things that you want in order to get where you want to be. Enjoy the beauty and magic in life.

Whoever said it was freezing outside? Oh yes, meteorologists around the country. These are the days where it feels amazing to bundle up in sweats with a cup of tea while watching the smoke rise above Lake Michigan or the snow falling on the city streets.

However, fashion does not take a break for winter or the cold for that matter. These four outfits show how to dress for the weather, while still being a fashionista.

  • Pair a warm plaid shirt with a snug winter vest.
  • Denim is in right now. And the rules for white have changed. Adding a wide-brimmed hat will keep the snow from ruining makeup and hair.
  • Dress down that leather jacket with a cozy sweater for work wear.
  • Play in the snow with one of my signature style must-haves - LEGGINGS! A bright cardigan over a sweet lace dress is the perfect day outfit.

Bundle up Chicago, and stay warm…in style.
