Layer up

Layer up

In winter on a motorcycle, layering is key.  I love having a big chunky sweater to wear on top of other layers.  I have this one from H&M in black and white.  This top is out of stock now, but this sequin sweater or this funnel neck sweatshirt would also work.

While my layers are often more functional and warmer than the leopard print top above, I do like how the two look together when the long sleeves of the leopard print top peek out from the sweater.  My leopard print top is from Ann Taylor, but it is similar to the one above.

For legs, I wear Zella leggings and leg warmers, unless I need to look nicer, in which case I skip the leg warmers.  For leg warmers, I ordered these in gray, but they looked a little brown when they showed up.  I like how they fit, though.  I also wear some older ones I have that are dark gray.

Black boots can be both functional and beautiful – my Nine West ones can be worn anywhere and even survived a minor motorcycle crash last week.

Depending on where I’m going, I’ll throw earrings and/or purse in my jacket and be ready to look presentable when I show up at my destination.

Fun in the freezing weather

We took advantage of our below-freezing weather, and have been using the great outdoors as a freezer to test out our Ice Bottle Chiller Mold from Williams-Sonoma.

La soirée d’hiver

La soirée d'hiver

The leather panel skirt I have is from Caché, and the woman I bought it from has a husband who rides a motorcycle.

La moto en hiver

La moto en hiver

While my bike is actually a Honda cbr600rr, and I couldn’t find my Michael Kors or Nine West boots online anymore, this is basically what I wear on a daily basis. The facemask is especially a lifesaver for winter.  I also usually add a cowl neck sweater or two, depending on how cold it is.  Roadgear coconut socks courtesy of Choiloi and Zanahoria keep my feet warm, and a second layer of gloves and handwarmers keep my hands warm.  Thanks to the amazing for recommending the Zella leggings – I love them!
