It finally feels like real winter here in the midwest. We had a few inches of snow over the weekend, and I was very excited. Being from Buffalo, NY, I miss the snow that we typically get back home. There is just something fun and cozy about watching the snow fall from inside a warm, comfortable place. However, a substantial snowfall is rare in my area and in just a few days we will be getting a dose of bitter cold. All the more reason to layer up.
I was contacted a few months ago by the Tommy John company, who asked if I would like to pick out a set monetary amount of product in exchange for a mention on my blog. No money was exchanged and all opinions are my own. I selected three pieces: a cami, a pair of underwear and a pair of socks.
Let me start by saying no underwear will be shown in this post, ha, ha. Although, you will see the socks. Tommy John was not looking for a model, but for a real person to try their product and give an honest review. I did wear the pieces under my outfit that I will be showing you and I am pleased to say, I love their products. The cami and panties are made of a soft, light weight cotton blend that does not bind or pinch. The cami is extra long, so it can be worn tucked in without fear of it untucking. The panties are smooth and won’t leave panty lines under your tighter fitting pants or skirts. The socks are thick and soft. I chose to use them as a pair of boot socks since I was wearing boots.
I got this yellow vest from my daughter for Christmas. It is a great piece with a faux fur lining and a zip off hood. It is very warm for those days when you want to do some shopping and don’t want to wear a full coat for running into the store.
In keeping with my love of layers I started with my Tommy John cami, followed by a Chico’s turtleneck, and a thrifted long sleeve button up. I wanted a completely casual look, so left the button up untucked and wore my distressed jeans.
My yellow bag was a recent thrift find. I like a light weight cross body bag and this one fits the bill. It is made a a nylon material and has serval pockets. It also has a wider strap which helps keep the neck and shoulders from getting kinks in them.
You can see the vest has pockets and toggles to make it tighter or looser. The hood is nice too and also lined with the same faux fur as the rest of the vest.
The button up top is busy enough on its own, but I did add this fringe pendant necklace just for fun.
The boots I chose to wear are my brown Sonoma biker boots. These are a mid-calf boot with a wider shaft so are great for tucking in, but also work perfectly under a boot cut jean.
These are the socks I picked out from Tommy John.
If you are looking for quality made socks and underclothing, be sure to check out Tommy John. The price points are rather high, but if you hit a sale or have a special coupon, it is worth it.
I hope you liked today’s outfit. I’ve included a few links for vests and biker boots. These are affiliate links. All opinions are my own.
