there's a lot of talk about the art of layering but streamlining is more my kind of animal.
everything must fulfill a function or it becomes a burden to me (i'm the same way at home).
this might be my ideal outfit this winter. dark denim (slimming), leather sneakers that hold up on the snow, baggy sweatshirt, bright lip (for vanity) and a quirky beanie for warmth.
you could add any kind of coat over this to mix things up a little. to me it's perfection!
