Overwinter (See Jane Wear)

Zara jacket (old but similar), Club Monaco blouse (old but similar), Rag & Bone jeans, Dolce Vita heels (on sale!), Celine bag

I’m so over winter.  Every morning I look into my closet and think “you again?” to all my clothes.  Bare legs aren’t an option and I’m tired of tights and heavy overcoats.  This morning, I decided a lightweight leather jacket was the only thing that would work for me, so I compensated for the chilly temperatures by wearing another coat (a trench) on top for my commute to work.  It’s the only thing I can do at this point short of hibernating.

Any tips for getting through these last weeks of winter?  I’m desperate.

  1. You are seriously brave! i live in Chicago and–while I am also beyond over winter–I still had to don my Coleman-sleeping bag coat today. But I totally applaud your ensemble + bravery!

  2. This is typically when I cross the line in the sand and dive into full-on delusional summer/spring wear, but with a blazer, you know, to be sensible.

  3. Wow, very brave indeed but the ensemble is great. Things are starting to warm up here in DC so I'm sure it won't be too much longer. Good call to keep the trench nearby. Helps to keep the sniffles and coughs at bay.

    Let the count down to warmth begin!

  4. Living in Nashville the weather is extremely bipolar. So theres always a grey area of the best time to transition into spring clothing. In the winter i'm caught in an all black rut. Like you i'm so ready for bare leg weather! I guess my only tip is adding pops of color to outfits when I can. BTW I love the fit of that leather jacket!

  5. I feel exactly the same way. I decided I should only have to wear a light jacket yesterday, and then it snowed. Mother Nature is just messing with us for fun. On the plus side, this outfit is adorable so at least you weren't chilly for nothing.

  6. Love those gold toed shoes! And I think everyone has had enough winter. I had to scrape ice off my car this morning and all I could think to myself was…REALLY?!

  7. Hi Anna,

    You look amazing in this outfit! I love, love, love the jacket. My favorite tip for getting through the last few days of a Chicago winter? Go to the conservatories! Lincoln and Garfield Parks both have indoor spaces teeming with tropical plant life. They're sprawling, humid, and oh so colorful. It's the only thing that really gets me through these last few weeks!

    Good luck! I'm totally with you on this one. Bring it on, Spring!

  8. I just bought a TINY space heater for my desk at work because I am so so so sick of tights and heavy sweaters, too. So I wear my ugly giant boots to work and then change into flats and heels and bare legs once I get here. Voila. Instant summer.

  9. You look AMAZING!! I absolutely love this! The leather jacket is smokin' on you, I love the cut of it and it pairs perfectly with the blouse underneath! Also loving your cap toe pumps! One of my favorites from you, for sure! xo!

  10. Beautiful look on you. Love this jacket a lot. Very flattering.

    Have a great Wednesday,
