With highs in the 40’s and 50’s last week, all I’ve wanted to do was bundle up in my U of A sweatpants, over-sized hoodie and furry blanket with a cup of hot cocoa. Now that the holidays are over, it’s less acceptable to be lounging on the couch all day. I guess you could say that I have a case of the post-holiday blues, so I need to brighten up my day with a colorful sweater.

Layers are very important in Arizona weather for a couple of reasons:

  1. The weather here can be very unpredictable. Last week it was in the 40’s and 50’s, and this week it’s supposed to be in the high 70’s.
  2. Since it’s not very often that the weather gets below the 40’s I (like most people here) don’t have a proper coat. Layering up is the best way to avoid having to purchase a huge coat that you would only wear for 1 week of the entire year.
  3. Lastly, it’s fun to take advantage of the cold weather when we have it! I love winter fashion and love pretending that Arizona has four different seasons like the majority of the United States.



The first winter fashion look in the Sweater Weather feature is a canary yellow Tory Burch sweater with front pockets and rounded gold buttons down the front that match my gold Marc Jacobs watch. I found this gem (the sweater) for more than half off at My Sister’s Closet, which is a consignment store in Arizona. Underneath is a basic white tee from Banana Republic and my favorite jeans “The Skinny” by Joe’s Jeans in Yasmin wash. Topping it off is one of my favorite pashmina scarfs in a rich copper/brown color from Aysha Saeed for Signette (now called Aysha Collection) to match my tan Coach booties that I purchased half off from Nordstrom Rack last July.


Be You, Bravely.
