Layering: Button Down + Cowl Neck Dress

Today I thought I'd try something different - layering a cowl neck dress over a long sleeve button down, and paired with grey suede boots and a simple black purse.  I really love the effect of the double collar.
Over top I added a simple grey wool coat since it was a bit chilly this morning.  These layers are perfect for the crazy weather we've been having lately.  Cold in the mornings and  up to 75F in the afternoons.

The coat is a tailored button down that I bought years ago at H&M.  I was surprised that it fit perfectly - no real tailoring necessary.  It's become one of my go-to layering pieces.
Dress: Vintage  Similar Here.  Top: Banana Republic.  Coat: H&M (Old) Similar Here..  Boots: Sam Edelman (Old) Love their OTK version Here.  Bag: Kwanpen. 

What do you think of the double collar look?  Is the weather where you live as crazy as it is here?

  6. I like the double collar look, just like you threw on a scarf. The weather around here is pretty warm for winter (around 9 °C), but grey and gloomy.

    1. It does look like a scarf - I didn't even think of that, haha. It's been very warm here until today, it's 9C (48F) and I'm freezing. I guess my body is used to the warm weather living in the southern US. When I used to live in NJ 9C was really warm.

  16. Ou, I love the double collar! It's a unique look, and really sweet as well :)

    The weather here hasn't been crazy like that, it's been either cold all day or warmer all day. It would be nice if it would be consistent day-by-day, but I'm glad that we don't have the different temperatures all day thing going on!
