And can I tell you about winter layers! Let me tell you that I always, and I say always, wear in winter as a basic, a camisolle and a tee with long sleeves. Then a top, sweater or blouse. If I am wearing a sweater it stays with that, but is it a top or blouse then I wear a cardigan or a blazer over it. Do I know the concept of winter layering or what!
Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!
WHAT IS THE GOOD BUY/GOOD-BYE BOOK ABOUT?
It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!
So lets start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Winter Layers!
First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge
I love layering for warmth and extra interest. I recently picked up this fabulous velvet kimono at Target and layered it over a thrifted ZARA black bodycon dress for a sassy winter look. Both were really Good Buys!
Next is Jodie of Jodie’s Touch of Style
Here’s my version of layering. I never thought I’d be wearing cropped sweaters, but it’s perfect to add some layers to a sleeveless dress.
Joanne of Slices of Life
I honestly could have attached any photo of any outfit I have worn the past few months as I am all about the winter layers. I ordered some new turtlenecks from LL Bean and I just love how nice and thick they are. They make a perfect base layer under sweaters. The white one paired perfectly with my pink and gray sweater for Valentine’s day.
Michelle of My Bijou Life
This puffer vest is amazingly warm. I love it! Definitely a good buy.
I’m sending you photos of a piece of clothing I want to say goodbye to. It’s about a coat I bought 10 years ago. I want to sort it out, but keep putting it off and wearing it one last time…
Jacqui of Mummabstylish
Love the jumper and jacket combo – my scarf adds colour and a bit of warmth.
Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey
Fall/winter are always my favorite seasons, because they allow me to put together more interesting outfits. I’ve recently discovered the layering power of the waistcoat/vest, so I’m sending you two outfits featuring my favorite waistcoat and sweater vest.
Rena of Fine Whatever
Winter layers for a SoCal gal has an entirely different look than for those living in chillier climates. While I do layer for warmth, most of the items can be worn year-round because they are lightweight. In this look, I started with the pants and cardigan as I like the combo of olive and teal, and then went on to add in more hues until I’d achieve what I call my Kaleidoscope of Colors.
And now my Winter Layers.
Layering is a necessity for me as I am always cold. Here I am wearing 5 layers, yes 5! A camisole and a basic long sleeved tee (my everyday wear in winter as a starter), then a blouse, a camisole for some interest, and a blazer! 5 Layers! All Good Buys even as the boots and the skirt!
MARCH’S THEME WILL BE: PERFECTLY PERIWINKLE (OR ANYTHING PURPLE!)
And now hop over to Shelbee’s blog to see what the other fashion bloggers are wearing!

Some amazing winter looks here! You look cozy and lovely in this outfit!
Thank you very much.
Lots of idea of how to wear layers, thank you for sharing, Nancy
Now you don’t need to layer right now! Thanks Anna!
So many wonderful layered looks! I love Jodie’s cropped sweater and Birgit’s coat and Salazar’s whole head to toe outfit! They are all fabulous though!
Yes I agree on Salazar’s look! Fabulous! And she wears it fantastic.
Loving all these layered looks! I am looking forward to spring though. Have a great day Nancy!
Yes me too, want to feel some sunshine!
Your Winter layering sounds almost exactly like mine, Nancy 🙂 xxx
You sound like me Nancy with all of those layers. I don’t quite as many now in AZ, but I’ve been known to wear 5!!
Haha, but isn’t it great that you now dot need to anymore!
I get cold easily, so layers are def. a must for me! Wow, you did great with 5 layers! That belt is really cute layered over all of the pieces.
Thank you very much Carrie!
So fun to see everybody’s layers!
Indeed, and thank you very much for participating!
I love all the fun layering styles.
Everyone looks fabulous!
Thank you very much Rosemary!
I’ve worn up to 5 layers too! I have a long-sleeved silk thermal top that I use when it’s really chilly. Lovely looks, all!
