Dark Ages (See Jane Wear)

Zara jacket + boots + scarf, Madewell jeggings, Forever 21 sweater, Banana Republic necklace, Chloe bag
It's the end of March, so I can't believe that I'm wearing all black and loads of layers.  Alas, temperatures have plummeted and I have no choice but to bundle up, yet again.  I don't necessarily need to be wearing the dark colors, but I'm a huge fan of black and it never seems to fail me.  I wore this for what was supposed to be a casual, early night out with friends (but it turned out to be a late, fun night!).  Wearing a light sweater, jacket, and scarf together kept me warm outside, but I was able to easily peel off a layer or two once indoors.


How was your weekend?

This is pretty much my go-to outfit for a cloudy day. Also, I'm obsessed with the boots. They look amazing.

I live in black too--there is something so easy about the color (or is it a shade)...anyway, I'm loving the nicer weather too! Have a great Monday!! PS: I love bucket bags (I have one similar to yours!)

Sanni said...

Oh yes, I hate it that it's March and it's incredibly cold. I am hoping it will warm up a bit, but I am not holding my breath.

Molly said...

You're looking super chic and cozy at the same time. I say that's pretty perfect. And those booties? Gorgeous.


Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

Marie a la Mode said...

Cute, Anna! Love the layers and the socks with the booties. I've been having to bundle up lately too.

Kathryn {Sweet Tea and Champagne} said...

Apparently temperatures have been plummeting all over, because it's been freezing in Tennessee as well- just last week it was 80 degrees! Leather jackets are always a great way to keep warm though! xo

My leather jacket is having a moment too! Are there rules for leather jackets in the spring? Not that I've ever been one to adhere to rules for getting dressed. Not to brag, but SF is finally getting some nice weather this week (after a week straight of rain) - I'm looking forward to pairing my leather jacket with some floaty floral dresses!

Cee said...

I stumbled upon this outfit on chictopia and just had to come to your blog to see more... especially when I saw what a brilliant name your blog has! The Dick and Jane books are so kitschy and fun :) I'm completely in love with your handbag, and your scarf adds just the most subtle pop of colour to this lovely, simple look. Gorgeous!

Very chic! The boots are the perfect "ending" to the outfit :)

Valerie said...

I always gravitate toward black and grey as well. I love the scarf and boots! Sounds like a fun night!

Style-Pursuit said...

One word to describe my weekend: COLD! Had to spend it at home then... :o)
Great layered outfit!

Josie said...

Love, LOVING all of your layers and those fab booties. And truth, it has been freezing... I can't believe it's going to be April at the end of the week; it honestly feels like February.

This is such a great look for this horrible weather. It's almost April and at this point it is just MEAN, mother nature. Please cease and desist from this torture. But I'm glad to see you're making the best of it with such a cute outfit. The lipstick is a great touch!!

I have those same boots but they kind of kill my feet. However, you've just inspired me to dust them off and endure the pain!

Laura J said...

Love your cloudy day look- you always look so pulled together despite your cold weather. Living in Southern California, when it's cold and cloudy I have no idea what to do and end up putting together a mishmash of my warmest layers:)
