Cozy, Classic & Chic Style
The hero of this look today (and the hero of my life lately) is this glossy puffer down vest by Sam. It is unbelievably warm and supremely chic—perfect for socially-distant jaunts around the block or runs to the grocery store. It keeps you cozy while keeping your arms unencumbered by restrictive layers of fluff. So you can haul groceries and/or squirming toddlers. If that’s not reason enough to buy and wear it everyday, I should also mention that it’s spectacular for layering underneath coats that you love but aren’t quite warm enough. We’ve all bought them. They’re cute, but seriously lacking when it comes to the actual task of warding off frostbite.
Two words of advice on this vest:
You might want to go up one size, as it can be pretty fitted. Also, after buying it for yourself, buy it for every woman on your holiday list. Because it makes for an amazing gift.
ALICE + OLIVIA
The base of the entire outfit is a knit dress by Alice + Olivia, one that I’m quite certain we’ll all get endless wear out of, as it’s ideal for both casual and professional purposes, depending on how it’s styled. Layered underneath are a stunning pair of Wolford tights, in a houndstooth pattern that’s ideal for wintertime. Something that isn’t Christmas but feels like Christmas? Houndstooth.
I can’t not accessorize, so naturally I’ve got two very important pieces of information for you:
The first is this cashmere yes cashmere beanie. And if you’ve never worn a cashmere beanie before, you are in for TREAT. Second, you know I love these Stuart Weitzman combat boots. And I’m not afraid to repeat myself. THEY’RE SUPERB. That gold hardware makes my heart stop everytime I look down. When it comes to these beauties, be sure to go down half a size as they run large. I typically wear an 8.5 in shoes and these are an 8. Still with plenty of room for thick cozy socks.
The last item I should mention here is this perfect leather belt which I recently ordered from Saks as well. It is an excellent dupe for a Chloe belt you’ve seen me wear countless times but was long ago sold out. If you’ve been looking for something similar, this is a great alternative!
It is possible to pull together warm looks for winter that have polish and style. And, while my sweatpant moments are highly valuable to me, so are the moments when I can put on real clothes and remember the reasons I don’t mind (that much) when the temperature drops.
