It’s safe to say that winter is in full swing here in Austin. I always think it’s interesting to hear when winter starts in different parts of the country. Sara was telling me that winter usually starts in mid-October, or if they’re lucky early November, in New York. In Austin, fall always officially starts on Halloween with a major temperature drop. Winter lasts between January and March, but it’s obviously not the same version of winter other parts of the country see!

The temps dropped into the twenties over the weekend, and it looks like they’ll stay in that range for the next few days. My closet is just not prepared for this. There’s no reason to be when we have only two weeks out of the year that get down this cold.

So, here we have some layers. This cardigan is basically a blanket, and the gingham is a staple that has taken me through every season. When I was first coming up with this outfit, using the Notes app on my phone one night, looking at my pile of clothes on the floor, I intended to wear a grey sweater over the button down, rather than a cardigan. A week and poor memory later, I put this together before work and fell in love with it. I’ve worn it twice three times since. I think it’s a great coffee shop outfit, so be sure to copy if you’ve got an upcoming study date or cozy Sunday with tea and a good book!
