Well, February is here and it has come with its fair share (read: feet) of snow and freezing temps. I’m blaming it for my blogging hiatus. There’s little motivation to get up and dressed and more incentive to cuddle on the couch and binge watch Shameless. Anyway…
When it is time to get out of the house, winter dressing is all about layers and piling them on in any creative way you’d like. I chose to start with fishnets (the accessory of the season) + a culotte jumpsuit + some hefty booties + a bandana. Add a duster jacket from one of my favorite brands Vetta Capsule, and a leather one, and my look was complete. #TwoCoatsAreBetterThanOne
Using my go-to basics as the foundation of a look is a no brainer; all that’s left is to throw on a killer coat and some boots. I’m obsessed with the high ankle style of this pair from Public Desire.
And this just in…
I’m happy to share that I am partnering with ALEX AND ANI in support of the American Cancer Society. 20% of the proceeds from the Celebrate Today bangle go to the cause. Shopping definitely feels even better when you can give back in the process. I love that ALEX AND ANI creates bracelets with a cause and works with various organizations to help give back via it’s Charity by Design line – we need more of that in the world!

Let’s be honest: athleisure is not a new concept. It’s been at least a year since this trend took over the fashion world and here we still are… passing off sweats as fashion and calling it street style. Don’t get me wrong – I’m obsessed. It’s brilliant – genius even. Anything that makes my most comfortable clothes acceptable in the outdoor world is 100% Jessica Approved.
So, how do you style your athleisure gear to feel on-trend? Try throwing on fishnets under a pair of sweats or wear a matching sweatshirt and pant with some pointed-toe boots. If you style your casual pieces with something unexpected, you’re sure to look street style chic. (Cliché, yet appropriate!)

There’s no denying that the cold weather is officially here in New England. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m all for an eye-catching coat, but when it’s 20°, you just might need something warm and functional.
PS – I told you fishnets were back! Wear under jeans for some extra layers.

Fishnets are so back in style it’s like we’re back in the 90’s punk/grunge era all over again. Although I was hesitant at first, they are definitely my favorite winter accessory this season. More to come on how I style them with pants and denim.
