Winter Work

winter work

I got an email from Katherine "Hi Katherine" .
She lives in the north were you guys get real winters, and asked for some colder weather sets.
So for those of you in the cold winter states/countries. I say layer layer layer.
Bulky sweaters aren't the answer they aren't very flattering on most people.
Instead buy thinner wool sweaters and blazers, long sleeve t-shirts, and scarves.
I love scarves they look great and add instant warmth.
You can modify any outfits I feature here by adding a scarf, boots, long sleeve t-shirt or a jacket.
