Layered Up

It's been a while since I've posted an outfit, so I thought I'd give it a go today.  I have been MISERABLY sick this winter, and on photoshoot day I was battling the flu, but you know what?  It was so nice to get out of the house for a few minutes, it was totally worth it.
I conscripted my boyfriend into photographer duty for this one.  He's really artistic, so I assumed he would be an excellent photographer, and he was....of birds, his dog, foliage, and the dreaded ACTION SHOT of yours truly.  Sigh.  You should SEE some of the facial expressions he captured.  It was so hilarious, I almost left the worst ones in.  It's what I deserve, though.  This is what he was doing when I informed him it was picture time.

Don't tell him I showed you this!  It was too cute not to share.

Anyway, it was freezing outside, and all I could think of was how to stay warm.  So, I piled on leggings, a skirt, a tee shirt, a sweater, two cardigans, and a scarf.  And my sh*tkicker boots.  It worked like a charm.  Bring it on, winter!

scarf: thrifted,  knitted cardigan: Portland Collection for Pendleton,   plain cardigan: Anthropologie,  sweater: Forever 21,  skirt: Anthropologie,  boots: Frye

I have to say, I felt partially like a crazy cat lady in this outfit, but it was so dang comfortable that I think I can live with it.  In fact, if I had a third cardigan that would have fit over the whole thing, I probably would have gone for it!
I hope you all are surviving the end of winter!

Anyway you look great and that cardigan looks extremely cozy, I want to wrap myself in it and curl up on the sofa with my boyfriend all day long!
