Outfit: Seafoam Cable Knit Sweater over a Flannel Top, Denim Button Down Skirt, and Blue Tights

Happy Leap Day to you! Now that it's nearly March I figure I better show you this layer-tastic outfit from January before you're all completely sick of cool weather looks. I'm just a bit behind in my backlog of outfits. I really enjoyed the layering and colors in this look though. 

I enjoy the cable knit sweaters I own but I do find them a little bulky, especially when I want to layer a shirt underneath. Tucking in my tops ensures I'm proportioned well without having to cut length off of all my shirts, which would be pretty difficult for sweaters. So, to get to the point, I was feeling a little bulky here, but still cute so it's okay.

I layered a go-to flannel shirt under my blue-green sweater and added a cool vintage pin which I think was my Great Grandma's. This ASOS denim skirt has been getting plenty of wear lately because it's neutral and goes with pretty much everything, so I threw it on too. (Please excuse the wrinkles. I was sitting at work all day!) Finally I added some dark blue tights and comfy brown ankle boots to complete the outfit.

I hope you're all having a great extra day of the year! I looked back to see if I posted here last Leap Day and saw that it was the day I was accepted into grad school. It's hard to believe that was four years ago. I was also rocking some good layering that day so click here if you want to check it out. That was back when I tended to post outfits on the day I wore them. Memories...

Anyway, have a wonderful start to your week! See you next month.

SO darling Jamie! You are the layering q-u-e-e-n. Also, I've been on the hunt for a skirt like your ASOS one at the thrift store. Might just have to break down and purchase! x

This is such a cute outfit - I love the jumper, and I think you've done a brilliant job at layering. And the brooch is very pretty!

Much love,
Mona
