Friday Fancies: Brrr

So the theme for Friday Fancies this week is aprés ski, but fortunately it fits perfectly with Chicago: BRR BRR BRR! I've actually been wishing for colder temperatures, so I'm not complaining. But in about an hour it's going to be quite a little trek from the train to work.

Also, this is almost exactly what I'm wearing today to stay warm! I love doubling up on sweaters. Why not? And J.Crew's merino ones are warm enough by themselves, but when it's this cold, they're so easy to layer up (and fun to find resale. The one I'm wearing today I found for $3 at a consignment store!). These leggings by Danksin are also our go to at our house. They're comfy, warm, and yes can also be used for working out. I have a few pairs and they're so comfortable I sometimes sleep in them.

Hope you all have fabulous weekends! Tonight the sisters and I are spending a night in watching Saved By the Bell. Yes, we might have found it at the library. 4 seasons worth. Be jealous! Have great ones and check out the fancies on Long Distance Loving!


  1. I've been wearing double sweaters for most of this week! I agree that layering them can be really fun :)
