Yes, we’ve just had the Deep Chill in Central Florida. Overnight temperatures were in the 30’s, a rare occurrence for us. Just that one night you wish you’d kept the electric blanket you brought here from Boston. We survived and are back in the sunny 60’s today. Good thing, because my true-winter closet is tiny.

Layering, as you all know, is the key to staying comfortable indoors and out. Here I’m wearing a vintage wool jacket over a thin wool sweater from GAP (sim), old-old knit pencil skirt (sim), grey leggings, and my new Doc Martens (sim). If I were to take a long walk, I’d add my leather jacket with faux fur trim, and a knit scarf.
The jacket was found in a NYC thrift shop, for about $25. I don’t know how old it is, but it’s got that fab 1940’s shape and shoulders, and no tags. Those are black beads on the lapel and pockets. The vintage bracelet is from Citizen Rosebud, and add-on hair is the Paige by Paula Young.

Hello 🙂 A beautiful jacket and I really like the blog.
The jacket definitely has a 1940’s shape to it – it is so flattering on you, and the details on the pockets and collar add extra pizazz. I heard that Florida was getting colder temperatures as well – at least you don’t have the piles of snow we’ve been digging through.
I love your Doc Martens—I used to have a similar pair back in the ’90s. Ah, the memories!

Love the whole look—-killer jacket with the Docs!!!!!
I need a pair of Doc Martens like that, they are absolutely gorgeous! I’m loving that amazing jacket as well. At least you got to wear some of your cold weather wardrobe, even if it was just for a day! xxx
That jacket is SWEET! Those 1940s styles are so flattering.
One year I need to get you up here to discover what real cold is all about! Ha ha! Although I think it can get very cold in Boston too and they always seem to have horrible snow storms there.
Lucky for us it has now “warmed up” to the freezing mark. Yes…everything in life is relative.
Love the beaded jacket Patti, the shape is so flattering on you! The boots are so cool, they give it a fun and playful look. Glad to hear you are back to warmer temps. I think we are in the 50s this week.
Have a great week!
You look so awesome in this outfit! Love your jacket and shoes!
Edged up and stunning from those anazing floral boots and up. Happy 2018 Patti!
I love that jacket and the color you put under it. The details are so pretty and those boots are so fun! Happy Monday!
Patti, I love this outfit so much! The floral Doc Martens are everything! I have a pair of brown floral ones that I scored a few years ago on super deep clearance from DSW. And now I am inspired to wear them today!
That jacket is amazing, looking great dear Patti. Happy 2018 =) Kisses

You layered beautifully!
SUPER COOL Jacket and boots! Happy New Year gorgeous!
Funky and warm! Aren’t you glad you get to wear your warm clothes? Although I suppose the 60-degree temps feel cold enough. Heh. Great outfit. Those Docs are awesome. And the jacket, I love that embellishment. What a great find. Thanks for the linkup!
Love the blazer!
Dying over that jacket, Patti! It is FABULOUS!
Layering is definitely the key…that and staying indoors…LOL!!
I’ll always love me a vintage piece Patti, and that jacket was such a good find! The beading is beautiful.
Thank you for the link up, have a good weekend (and glad to hear your temps are warmer)!
Lovely layered outfit, you look like you stepped out of a classic movie from the 1940s (an updated look with the DM boots). As for “deep chill” we in Ontario are in a deep freeze with temperatures not fit for man nor beast! I’d love to be in Florida!
Happy new year Patti! I love your boots xx
Lovely jacket Patti, love the mix of pink with royal blue and the details over the collar and pockets looks really pretty. Your layering technique is perfect, you look very stylish while feeling warm and comfortable
What a beautiful jacket! Stay warm!
That jacket is an amazing fit on you, Patti! Thanks for the link up!
Oh yes, that jacket is definitely 40’s and I love it. An allover great look. I know about those shocking temps you had. My sister messaged me that morning because she was worried about all her house plants. Glad its warmed up for you. And I believe in those layers!
