Happy first Hump Day of the new year! Sorry I've been a little MIA from the blog for the last few days, but I was having too much fun this past weekend, then recovering from it! I spent New Years Eve at my sister's lake house, and ended up at her neighbor's party to ring in the new year. I believe we all stayed up till 2am (a very late time when you have toddlers), then continued to party all weekend with the rest of my family in Killington, VT. There, we celebrated both the New Year and Chrismakkah, so it was a non-stop, yet extremely fun weekend. Lets just say I was dragging on Monday, which meant no blog post, but the time off was well worth it. Not only did I have an amazing weekend with my family, but I spent Monday organizing and writing down all of my goals and plans for 2016. I'm so excited for the new year, and have a feeling it's going to be a great one. I also can't wait to share with you all the things I have planned for Threads for Thomas in the year ahead!
Winter arrived along with the new year, as the temperatures really dropped here in New England. We even got some snow, which means it's time for me to start throwing on the layers! The key to not looking bulky while layering is to use thin pieces for your base layer. Since silk is pretty warm, I started with my favorite silk Equipment blouse, then added my IRO long sleeve shirt, which feels more like a light weight sweater, and topped off my look with a thick cardigan. Wearing a hat is one of the best ways to keep warm, as you lose a lot of heat through your head, and I love how a beanie can make your outfit look cozy yet stylish. I finished my look with my convertible mittens, and love how they easily transform from mittens to fingerless gloves. This pair is from Madewell, which are no longer available, but I linked some great alternatives below.
