I recently purchased this embellished sweatshirt on the Piperlime website during their big end of year sale. When it arrived, it was more of a crop top style then I had expected. The only solution, prep it up a bit with layers! 

By adding a basic white collar tee under, it definitely changed the style of the outfit, but in a great way. I added distressed denim, cut-out boots, and minimal jewelry to finish the look off.

And below is how all us fashion bloggers actually feel during our winter photo shoots! I had snow in my shoes, it was windy & CURRENTLY snowing, plus my eyes were watering.

In the end...you get some honest photos like this one! ;)
