 Inspired by Jessica of Bows & Sequins I decided to keep myself warm on this chilly Chicago day by layering a sweater over a chambray shirt.  Her outfit was for a casual day with the family during the holidays but I took my up a notch for work by wearing burgundy dress pants, heels, and some jewels.

To be honest, I saw an adorable gray snowflake sweater at H & M earlier this month and almost bought it.  But, really, how often can you wear a snowflake sweater?  Especially when you already have a perfectly serviceable gray sweater in your closet?  See, look at me using things I already own!

Doesn’t mean I’m not still thinking about that sweater.
