We’ve had a few chilly days here in the South, but it hasn’t really gotten cold yet. Every year, like clockwork, Southern Fashionistas face the great debate: how to wear this season’s trends without absolutely melting when stepping outside.
I spotted this Fashionista out running errands, and her layers are a perfect option for those of us who are not going to be seeing a white Christmas this year. Brown leather boots are a staple of many closets, and she’s kept the outfit very neutral by adding a dark chocolate bomber jacket. Her thin-knit scarf is the perfect shade of mint to add a pop-of-color to this outfit.

To Do: Sydney’s look is all about putting layers together to make one succinct look. Roll the sleeves on a leather jacket to display your watch and bracelets. Add a soft scarf that doesn’t weigh you down, and you’ll be comfortable all day.
