Look Book: Cozy Leg Warmers & Lazy Weekends!!

Monday, January 23, 2012

Martin & I were lazy, lazy bums this weekend and it felt sooo good! On Saturday, we took advantage of the relatively mild temperature and went to explore a fisherman's village just 20 minutes from where we live - it was so nice to get out and do something different. Yay! I'll be sharing those photos with you early next week. The rest of the weekend was spent doing a few DIY decorating projects around our home. I also (oh joy!) discovered pinning!! I had no idea it was so fun & addictive; if you'd like to see what I'm loving, you can follow me here: Girl & Closet Pinterest!
Cozy knit leg warmers & knee boots is a look I've wanted to try for quite a while and I absolutely loved it. Plus, I really liked the added warmth. Cute & functional is a total win-win in my fashion books! And as much as I want the warmer weather to come back, it's always during this season that I realize how much I love to layer - it adds so much more interest to an outfit!
This week, I'll be ordering my Girl & Closet business cards for my upcoming trip to Texas Style Conference in Austin, Texas - yay! I'm slowly starting to plan some outfits for it too. I'll be there mid March... any fashion tips for me, guys?! Can I get away with light cardy's & dresses? Tights or no tights?! Help! Lastly, if you haven't already, don't forget to enter my Gaia Metal Studio Giveaway; one lucky gal will win a gorgeous money clip for her fella or special someone - just in time for Valentines Day! ♥

  15. See, it's photos like this that keep me aching for a white winter. All we ever get is rain in our area. But you look so warm and cozy out there in all that snow! The leather jacket is such a great touch with the dress.

  20. I love the boots and thick socks look - so cute! I'm not sure what TX weather is like in March but when I was in Dallas in October it was chilly enough for tights and I was very glad I had brought some.

    Have a great week :-) xo


  29. Your outfit is lovely, Veronika, as always! I am really liking the floral skirt- it just adds a nice touch to the winter-y look! Leg warmers are great too, such a pretty vintage inspired layering!!! :)

    I love your floral print dress, too.


  44. The leg warmers are adorable with your cool boots. I love your jacket too! And I definitely started following you on Pinterest. I'm addicted too.

  45. so so cute. i totally agree about winter layering...after it's been about of day of summer i'm thinking...but i miss my cardigan!

  46. the leg warmers look great with the boots you never fail to inspire dear!

  47. Aw, love the outfit! I'll be at Texas Style Council too, so excited to possibly meet you! Being a native of Texas, I would recommend light cardigan and dress. You probably won't need the tights though, unless it gets cool at night, but the possibility is slim. It just gets warmer here so quickly. Anyhow, take care!

  48. I like the leg warmers. I think I have pinned more DIY ideas that I will ever be able to actually finish.

  49. Isn't Pinterest the most addictive thing? I discovered it a few months ago and I rarely go a day without finding some new inspiration to pin. Can't wait to take a look at yours, I'm sure you have some wonderful things pinned to your boards!

    I'm loving this winter look, particularly those fun patterned knee high socks. How cute! I wish I knew about Texas weather in March, but I'm sure you'll come up with some great looks, and I can't wait to see them all. Can't wait to see you soon, my dear!

  50. There's nothing better than warm, cozy socks and lazy winter weekends!

  51. I recently discovered your blog and I've been combing through your archives! Love your style and that you're from Vancouver as well :)


  52. Adorable :) I love the layered leg warmers and boots. As for Austin TX weather, I have no clue how to pack either!! It's usually cold and rainy in March where I live, so I'm hoping to get some pointers from Texans on how to dress.

  53. You look extra gorgeous in these photos! I love the leg warmers. Doing nothing is the best sometimes. But sometimes I hate doing nothing! I don't know what to tell you to wear in Austin, never been to TX :)

  54. Yay for lazy/relaxing weekends :) This look is sooo adorable pretty lady! I love the leg warmer look as well...and that dress is super cute!

    I lived in San Antonio (1 hour south of Austin) and visited Austin pretty regularly. One word, HOT! You will totally get away with a dress sans tights and a light cardi, you may not even need the cardi! It will more than likely be in the 75-80's :) Have fun!!


  55. this may be a favorite outfit of yours yet, dear veronika. :) i live in north east texas, & it's pretty chilly here in march. today we didn't need jackets & it's been between 50-60 degrees. it really starts warming up in april & may. bring the tights, & jackets, but you might not need them. make sure you have a mix of short & long sleeves. it's usually rain or sun here, oh & it's humid.

  56. You do dresses so well! Love the socks and boots. This also reconfirms how much I want a hot little leather jacket!!

  57. Great layering, functional and needed this time of year!

  58. Great leather jacket!


  59. love the leather jacket and your socks!! adorable!


  60. Hooray, Pinterest! I know, I know...it's so crazy addicting, you're right! I'm hopping on to follow you now :) Can't wait to see those fisherman's village photos!

  66. Those leg warmers are the warmest coziest things I've seen all day! So cute!

  67. Texas weather in March could be one of two ways...either extremely hot (think 80's even 90's) or rainy and cold. I'd bring options for both, because Texas is famous for weather that radically changes.

    I should know! I've lived in Texas all my life, including Austin.

  68. i love the cozy knit and boots look! and cheers to lazy weekends :)

  70. I love the leg warmers and the whole look looks very cozy!

  71. I love the bit of edge that the leather jacket adds to the oufit!

  72. Man, I fell behind on my blogs, but so glad I caught up, because this outfit is SO cute! <3
    Adorable socks and boots. Plus, the print on your dress - as always - is perfect :)
    Hmm, I can't advise you on that Style Conference as far as outfits. Just wear what you'd normally wear, and I'm sure you'll be fine ;) You've got such fantastic style! I know you'll pull together some great looks.


  73. I love those leg warmers peeking out over your boots, what a cute look! Strangely, it hasn't been cold enough here to warrant leg-warmers, but I'm sure that will change soon. I'll have to try it when winter finally decides to show up!

  74. Just found your blog!
    your adorable love the outfit so great!
    check out my blog :)

  75. Super cute! Love the socks peaking out of your boots!

    xo Jennifer


  76. Super cute outfit! Love all the layers, especially the skirt :-)


  77. Exploring is so much fun! You look lovely! Love your leg warmers!

  78. Love this girly/edgy look and the mix of colors/patterns with the dress and socks!! EE! And the backdrop is perfect, love the green building and fence. And you reminded me that I need to order new biz cards for Texas Style Council!

  79. Lovely outfit! Sounds like a great weekend.

    As far as Texas, from what I remember, March is not a time where you want to be dressed warmly. I'd take 1 layer worthy outfit in case there's some weird freak cold snap to hold you out to getting to a store and getting anything else should you need emergency cold weather clothing. Over all though, March should be pretty warm there. If I remember growing up there correctly, winter usually consisted of about 2-3 weeks of actual coldness. Hope you have fun there!

  80. The print on your dress is so pretty!

  81. I Love the hole outfit! i would SO wear this. i love your blog, it is really awesome! :D



  82. Thick thigh-high socks and tall boots is pretty much my go-to look for winter. Love that dress!


  83. hope to see your business cards on the blog! You look soo pretty. The boots are my favorites and I hope to get a pair for myself soon!!

  84. This outfit look amazing on you, I love how you layer things. I'm really happy for your trip to the Texas Style Council, can't wait to see your business cards.
