Fashion Friday: Swedish Chill

In case you hadn’t heard, it’s cold here. Like, really cold.  And when it’s this cold it’s sometimes hard to wear anything but a decidedly un-sexy puffy coat and snow boots (although I get more compliments on my snow boots than on any other pair of shoes I own).  So I went in search of some cold weather inspiration where they KNOW how to dress for the cold- Sweden. Check out these yummy outfits that look cute and are toasty warm from Scandinavian street style blogs StockholmStreetStyle and Copenhagen Street Style.

I adore this whole look. Uggs can be cute, see?

This jacket fits so ridiculously well- i want it!


This cape is MAGNIFICENT- the color, the drape, the pairing with high waisted jeans!

Furry boots + sheer stockings=sexy

I have a fur shrug JUST like this from my grandmother that I never wear unless I’m channeling Margot Tenenbaum inside my own house . Now I might.

YES. YES. YES.

I just love all things furry (including animals, so yes, I prefer faux fur)

Cuteness is a belted sweater with shorts and tights!

More furriness.

That is the motherload of clutches.

Guess what? MORE furriness! Hey, it’s warm.

I mean, really. Does it get cooler or cuter than this? I really wish I could do my hair like that.

So lovely.

I personally am in search of a black Mongolian lamb vest after seeing it on two very chic women last week and this lovely lady on The Sartorialist.

Some Scandinavian inspired picks for the cold temps (because I am still HATING on the retailers for putting out pink chiffon while we are buried in dirty snow piles. It’s like a slap in the face (and a really bad idea if you want to turn a profit in February in New England)
