Baby, It’s COLD Outside!

We didn’t get hit with the snow as bad as the east coast did – as a matter of fact, we’ve had very little cold and snow this winter.  It’s been more like early spring all season for us. So weird!!  We finally got a few inches of snow and ice this week and it’s cold enough for me to pull out some of my favorite cold weather gear.  I have a small collection of vintage hats that I keep adding to every year that I will be offering in the shop soon.  These fur hats are SO stinking cute!

I NEVER think the weather is too cold for a dress or a skirt.  I’m the queen of layering.  It’s actually far warmer than jeans once I get my fleece lined tights, thigh high wool stockings, dress, and cardigans all piled on!  However, from time to time I still like to throw on some slacks on a cold day for coziness sake.  I wanted to share this outfit to show how you can incorporate pieces from the 40’s and 50’s for a cute, casual look!

These are slacks from the 1940’s that, frankly, looked unappealing on a hanger.  I’ve been on the lookout for some vintage slacks to style Katharine Hepburn style.  I absolutely adore Katharine’s style but I don’t have the right body type to really emulate her.  She was tall and lanky and looked amazing in slacks.  I’m…not tall and lanky haha.  I’m the complete opposite.  I do still like the style though, it’s just a matter of finding items that work with my body type as well.

She was a fierce style maven!

A Katharine Hepburn inspired outfit can be a great choice if you have to wear business or business casual clothing to work.  It can also be a cute date night outfit!  Pair a button down blouse with a pair of high waisted slacks.  You can wear loafers or slip on shoes, you don’t have to wear with heels as I did.  Don’t have a tie neck or pussy bow blouse?  Tie a ribbon around your neck!  Super chic, easy to wear, and a great way to wear vintage on a daily basis!

I paired the slack and tie neck blouse with a dress coat that is from the early ’50’s and it was a pretty functional, lovely winter ensemble in my opinion.
