Today's Everyday Fashion: The Grad Student

I call this look 'the grad student' because my inspiration photo and I look like we are headed to the library to study. :-) You don't have to be a student to rock this look though. This comfy and incredibly warm outfit is perfect for grown-up errands and playdates alike!

Why this works: Lots of layers keep you warm in the winter but they can also make you look bulky. Keep your layers unbuttoned and open for a much slimmer silhouette that will still keep you warm. (you can always wrap your sweater tighter if you catch a chill!)
