Grandpa's Sweater from the 60s #StyledByMarina
Today I'm coming at you with a quick winter outfit post. Keeping it warm and stylish in the winter time can be quite a challenge for us girls. Especially when it is currently 5 degrees or snowy outside and you gotta look good while trying to stay warm and cozy. As much as we all adore a sexy silk dress or a chic little black dress for Christmas and New Year party, sometimes the weather just gets too freezing cold to even consider wearing a dress.
As for my bottom, I chose a long wool pencil skirt with similar stripes print on it, I bought this skirt whilst on my trip to South Korea in November, The price is super affordable and the quality is very nice. It's one of those cozy skirts that can keep you warm in the winter time.
For shoes, I just had on my sparkly sneakers from Bershka and paired it with some anklets to add a little more retro vibe to my look. And to accessorize, I had on my deep blue velvet newsboy hat which I love, hats and velvet are just the perfect combinations for the winter season. Lastly, I wore a simple choker from HotTopic.

I adore this "vintage winter look" I put together! Because I feel like sometimes we forgot how much clothes we buy on a monthly(or for me, weekly. oops!) basis and we would inevitably end up with an enormous amount of clothes that we rarely ever wear. So every so often I like to take a good look at my closet and the clothes I already own and come up with fun new ideas to mix and match each piece of clothing and create new looks.
If you haven't tried it yet, I encourage you to dig through your closet and REALLY give some of your old clothing a good look, you never know, you might just be inspired by them once again. However, if you are like me that love vintage clothing, you already know the magic of each piece of old clothing and the stories behind them, and the tales they continue to tell while you are wearing them.
Merry Christmas and I wish you guys a happy new year!
