I love my layers as much as the next, but a girl can only do boots and scarves for so long. After two months of wrapping myself in denim and pea coats, I have hit my limit. But it’s still cold here in Italy — and it looks like winter wants to stay awhile — so I can’t seem to justify pulling out flip flops or sundresses just yet.
My favorite way to stay warm AND trendy is to leave jeans out of the equation entirely. Opt for thick tights, instead. A knitted sweater over a black dress. High-waisted shorts. Whatever the combination, I find it easier to be versatile when I’m not stuck with denim.
I went to Paris this past weekend, and when I started packing, I knew it would be the perfect opp to try more fun looks and leave the jeans at home. And I mean, it’s Paris — we gotta bring our “A” game. (; I packed those same darn boots I’ve been lugging because they’re the most comfortable to walk in, BUT I pulled out my trench coat and hat for the first time since arriving in Europe! Something old, something new.
