So, Boston got snow again and according to the forecast, there's going to be quite a bit of it in February. While this weather brings my ability to run around in pumps to a grinding halt, I do love the fresh white all around. And what I'm learning is that when you're dressed warmly enough it's actually pretty enjoyable.
It took a little while after moving to Boston from LA, to figure out how to look cute in the winter. It's not easy but it can be a fun challenge. And one of winter's biggest pleasures for me is easily the search and finding of a statement coat - something that stands out in a sea of black outerwear.
COAT: FOREVER 21 (now on sale!)| SWEATER: TOPSHOP | PANTS: PAIGE | BOOTS: BANANA REPUBLIC (similar HERE) | SUNGLASSES: BURBERRY (similar HERE)
Speaking of black coats I do have my share of them and for a more fitted silhouette, one of my other favorites that has really stood the test of time is a classic black wool trench from many years ago. You can see it styled in my blog post here.
Coming back to our coat du jour, this super soft plaid faux shearling number has netted major return on investment this winter. It has no closure, so probably not the best choice for days with high wind chill, but otherwise I love that you can pull it around yourself as tightly as you like. It also has a hood and if you make it to the bottom of the post you'll see why it could have been really handy.
I also double over-sized by throwing this on over a slouchy sweater which you'll see more of in another post because I love it and want to show it a little better. It's so incredibly warm and has the coolest bell-sleeves (more details in another post!). I kept the bottom simple in black skinny pants and black lace-up boots, and let the coat do the talking.
I'm making a face below because a bunch of snow came tumbling down on my head from the trees in a fine flurry. I should have put the hood up.
