SWEATER: J.CREW FACTORY | JEANS: LOFT | BOOTS: C/O PAYLESS | SHIRT: J.CREW (similar) | HAT: TOPSHOP | COAT: BURBERRY |
After a weekend of playing in the snow and shoveling I'm now nursing a cold. We got over a foot of snow so it was the perfect occasion to break out some serious winter gear, aka flat snow boots with insulation. These boots were sent to me by Payless and I'm so glad that they did because these boots are super warm (and right now, on sale for under $50). That makes me happy because I hate to spend a lot on shoes that are going to take a beating. I layered up really well with my button-down, favorite red wool turtleneck and my warmest puffer. I also wore my new skinny cropped jeans for curvy figures (read review below). If your Valentine's day plans involve shoveling and rolling around in the snow then look no further for your outfit haha.

Somehow every year I forget how cold February is, ugh. Thank goodness for velvet and faux fur. These two fabrics make cute winter layering easy. My velvet midi-skirt works for the office or the weekend. For work I've been wearing it with a turtleneck, blazer and booties. So easy to put together and super warm. For this weekend I added my faux fur vest plus cute lace socks, which made wearing sandals possible. This a simple way to add texture to your outfit and stay warm in freezing temps.

I think we can all agree that there's not much that can beat a pair of relaxed jeans and a soft flannel shirt if you want comfort. But how do you avoid looking sloppy when you roll out in this comfortable ensemble? An easy style tip for dressing up flannel is simply to balance out the casual vibe with dressier accessories. This slightly fitted plaid flannel shirt is one of my top favorites of the season and is super easy to style. Just pair with your favorite denim, then add pumps + a fun bag, to take your jeans-and-flannel outfit from boring to chic. My night watch flannel shirt is currently on sale for under $25 and because I like this print so much, I also linked this lighter, more fitted version which is perfect for work where mine is more casual.

Hounds-tooth has always been one of my favorite patterns. It has an austerity I like and pairs well with both jeans and the midi skirts I love so much. Adding a hounds-tooth coat to your wardrobe adds a little touch of sophistication for not a lot of money - this one is under $100 on sale. While I was hunting for options I found several that I love. I linked my favorites at a few different price points - grab one while you can because it won't go out of style.

Happy New Year everyone! A good and warm camel coat that works in a Boston winter has been on my list for a while. Not only is it a staple for pretty much anyone's wardrobe, it's also the perfect compliment to my usual palette of brights and prints. I've linked several cute options at a variety of price points so if you're on the hunt for a neutral winter coat that will stay in style forever, check out the options I've linked above and in the post.

For off, to all my US friends, Happy Thanksgiving weekend! I'm a serious fan of the last quarter of the year despite the tanking temps out here in Boston. Aside from the culinary indulgences and total license to chill that this weekend brings, there are also some really nice sales at all price points. I'm focusing my purchases on great sweaters and coats because nothing bores me more than wearing black outerwear all winter. So in this outfit I went with emerald and navy - two colors I love and which work so well together. My coat is only $60 at the moment and still available online.

TURTLENECK: J.CREW | SKIRT: H&M, N/A online but SIMILAR | SUNGLASSES: KAREN WALKER | SHOES: MIU MIU old, SIMILAR | BAG: MARC JACOBS
This Fall has been so beautiful - so many sunny days and we're still getting weather in the high 50's! It's great to not yet have to wear a coat every day. For this kind of weather, turtlenecks are always my go to and my current favorite chunky turtlenecks are hands down from J.Crew and J.Crew Factory (how cute is this red one for the holidays!). I wear them pretty liberally all Fall and Winter with pencil skirts or layered over dresses for work. They also make such a warm middle layer if you like to wear blazers to wear or on the weekend.

COAT: J.CREW | BAG: ZARA (no longer available online it seems). Also love THIS | BOOTS: old, new HERE
Hope everyone's having a great Fall so far! Temps have been dropping gradually in Boston and it's already chilly enough to warrant wearing a coat. I love red in general but really love it when it comes to outerwear because it stands out among the mass of black coats most people tend to wear. I also find that bright colors genuinely cheer me up and on a dark winter morning, a warm and stylish red coat really helps with the mood!

My floral obsession continues ladies. As we move closer to the official start of Winter I've simply swapped out my light florals with dark ones. Honestly, I know we all use the word "obsessed" quite a bit but that's really the only description for my constant pull towards flowery prints. This particular skirt was even hanging way above my eye-level at Forever 21 but somehow it caught my attention. As is often the case with Forever items, I can't seem to find this one online but I did find 2 other very similar ones. As always with Forever, the price point and designer knock-off elements are undeniable. These floral prints remind me of this stunning Erdem floral, which is of course way beyond my budget. I'm always so happy to find inexpensive options for my work wardrobe.
