Sometimes the grey skies and gloomy winter can give you the fashion blues. So I beat those blues back this weekend by layering a few blue pieces to make a warm and fashionable winter statement when meeting up with my girlfriends for brunch at The Liberty Tavern in Arlington, Va. We were all getting a little cabin fever from the snow so we met up before our sons basketball game to grab a bite to eat (brunch $21 and good) and catch up. Dressing in layers works great when going from the cold outside to a warm venue inside. Still feeling blah, add some personality to your winter look by layering a pinstripe button up under your sweater. Pattern play is sure to lighten up any look.  What piece are you wearing this season to beat back the winter blues?
