This weekend was cold, wet and windy. When it's gloomy out it's best to wear practical layers, but that doesn't mean you can't be stylish. I went with neutral colors, but kept it interesting with pattern and texture. It appears I have a growing obsession with button-down shirts (as seen here, here, here and here).  I like how they add a little tomboy to my more feminine style. Plus, they work perfectly with a statement necklace like this stunner from Lauren Elan
