A BRRRand New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone! I can barely fathom the fact that it is already 2015. 2014 sprinted right past me, and every second it's running father and farther away. It is an understatement to state that this year will be insanely jam-packed. There is so much that is predictable about 2015. However, so much more is erratic and up in the air. Regardless, I'm thrilled for the imminent experiences and opportunities this year has to offer. Because Diana and I are students and we aren't ones with much free time, maintaining and updating Letrendary will definitely be a new challenge. Nevertheless, Diana and I will put forth our best effort to make Letrendary the best that it can be this year. 

Recently, it has been chillier in Southern California, and I have been enjoying it. For the past two weeks of winter break, I spent the great majority of it at home studying. Therefore, this adventure to Mt. Baldy was a treat to starting off the new year. It was especially notable because I had not seen snow for two whole years. Since I knew there was going to be snow, I made this week's post about layering for cold weather. I also added pictures of a few of my favorite hats for the winter. Frankly, I don't really wear my hats often. Although I have a decent number of them, I don't find myself wearing them as much as I should. Anyhow, hats are always a good idea to keep warm and add flair to any outfit.

Striped Sweater: Abercrombie / Denim Flannel: Polo Ralph Lauren / Charcoal Pea Coat: Nordstrom / Black Jeans: American Eagle / Boots: Franco Sarto / Charcoal Scarf: Saks Off Fifth
I wore 4 layers in this outfit. I first wore a v-neck t-shirt underneath my striped sweater in order to have a thin layer beneath it. On top of the striped sweater, I wore a denim flannel. For the fourth layer, I wore a grey pea coat. 
Tip for the week: Rather than just wearing a long sleeve and a thick jacket, layering sweaters, flannels, t-shirts, etc. is a smart way to mix and match different staples. Plus, you'll be warmer in the end. Another thing to keep in mind is that scarves are a necessity in this sort of cold weather. Never underestimate the difference a scarf can make! I'd say this specific outfit is adequate for 50-60 degrees weather. If it were colder, I would have traded out the striped sweater for a sweater that was thicker, and I would have worn a thicker thermal coat.

Beret
I got this beret for Christmas several years ago, and I still love it because it's adorned with striped sequins and a chiffon flower.

The cable-knit pattern on the beanie matches exactly with the thick cable-knit sweater I am wearing. Also, light pink and white are two colors that complement each other.
