Now that we are settling in to the New Year, we have no choice but to settle in to the winter weather too. I am beginning to exhibit more + more of my winter style by layering using different collaborative worthy wardrobe pieces. For one, I call myself freezing in even 50 degree weather here in Los Angeles – pretty sad I know (lol), but ladies, I have a great excuse…one is that I’m a California girl, born + raised and two I am a size, petite + slender. Get my drift. Okay, so now that I got my explanation out the way, let’s get to how I put my winter style together using this super cute + creative gray fringe trench vest that I got from Heavenly Couture – a boutique where everything is $17.99 or less. Bomb, right?!?

I stumbled upon this gem looking for a totally different store to shop in Pasadena, CA (assuming you don’t know where Pasadena is it’s a city northeast of downtown Los Angeles) over the holidays + decided to take a look see at what their inventory had to offer a fashionista like myself. Boy was I glad that I did. I found so many cute items, which includes this trench vest + immediately saw this colorful long sleeve plaid button up. I thought that the muted colours in the shirt would go fantastic with the gray trench vest + tried it on right in the store. I was so right about my style observation because the colours had balanced out so well.

This vest or anything similar is great for anyone that wants to layer with another fabulous piece (like the featured top or even a long sleeve sweater) or simply wants to cover up any body flaws. For style efficiency I paired it with a gray shearling pom beanie, neutral open toe booties by Chinese Laundry, a burgandy tote bag by Stella + Max, silver tone accessories (pave ring from Stella & Dot, Curve bar necklace from H&M and silver round earrings also from H&M) + brown mirrored sunnies.

Have you completed your winter style shopping yet? Are you considering collaborative layering wardrobe pieces that complement each other? I really hope you enjoyed my winter style + that your winter pairings are in tune with your personal style.
