Fashion Friday: What I REALLY Wear in Winter

Someone posted on my blog or Instagram the other day asking what I REALLY wore during the messy, dreary, cold months of winter. I laughed, because I had just been scrolling Insta looking at some fashion bloggers frolicking around outside during the “bomb-cyclone” winter storm we had– in heeled boots and SKIRTS. Now, I love looking at unrealistic and inspirational images as much as the next gal, but when it comes down to real life, I try to look as pulled together as possible but while also being comfy and warm with dry feet.  So here are some looks that I wear during winter when spending the day with Henry or going to a meeting!

MOM UNIFORM

I wear jeans 99.9% of the time. To the office, to meetings, out to dinner.  When I’m in mom-mode I want to be comfy and able to play int he snow with my little guy.  Every year for the past couple years I’ve bought myself a timeless investment piece as my “Chirstmas bonus” to myself– last year it was my watch, this year it was a Moncler puffer coat.  It was stupid expensive, but when I saw it it was the perfect color, last one in my size and I just DID IT. And you know what? Best money I’ve spent in a while!  I wear it constantly and it is SO light and so friggin’ warm.  That said, this Uniqlo version below is SO great too (plus $99 on sale!) Paired with my fave cashmere tee, the BEST jeans for boots (slim enough at ankle to tuck right into boots and warm but cute boots I can move and am comfy but don’t look like a hot mess!

OFFICE DAY

Most days I’m in the office, perhaps with a quick client meeting or trip to the design center.  I love my sweater blazers paired with the BEST tee, fave necklace and water-resistant booties (and of course a touch of leopard– this coat is on clearance!)

MEETING TIME

Dressing up in the winter is so tough– so I like to stick to all black and layer.  A cute turtleneck sweater dress with great tights and knee high boots works great for any kind of meeting.   I have this coat and it’s to beautiful AND warm.

WISHFUL THINKING

I saw this jacket the other day and LOVED it, even though it’s a bit bright.  This look is one that works great for a not wet day where you want to look fun and funky but ladylike too.
