Please Welcome: Sidewalk Ready

I found Kayley's blog Sidewalk Ready about a month ago and instantly fell in love with her romantic, classic style. I poured a glass of wine and started going through all of her archives. Before I knew it I had read almost all of her posts. And I was drunk.

Enjoy viewing her enviable clothing and inspiring photographs!


A couple of days ago Megan sent me an email asking if I would be willing to do a blog post for her while she is away in the amazing state of California! Well, I almost never pass up an opportunity to grace another blog, call it ego, or call it a willingness to help out ... either way, here I am!

One of big reasons why I am happy to be here is because Feathers and Freckles is an everyday fashion blog, and those are my favorite kind! I love seeing what down-to-earth, practical ensembles other bloggers, like me, put together! But who am I? Hi, allow me to introduce myself! I'm Kayley from Sidewalk Ready. I started blogging in October of 2010, and originally featured an outfit every day. Now I have it down to about three outfits a week and an occasional post on the trials of decorating a new home (we moved this past July).

I am from Grand Rapids, MI ... and winter dressing is a major challenge here with all the snow and freezing temps. After my first winter of blogging, I soon realized that layering can go oh-so right, and also oh-so wrong. Here are several of my favorite layered looks from last winter. *Please keep in mind that any of these outfits shown without a coat, are normally worn outdoors with a coat. I just ditched it for photo purposes.*

Examples of layering over dresses:

With pants:

Other options:

If you would like to see more photos of any of the above outfits, just click the picture and it will you direct you to the original blog post over on Sidewalk Ready!

Thanks so much for reading and thanks to Megan for allowing me to guest post! Stop over to SWR anytime and say "hi!"
