Wearing Tommy Hilfiger coat ($100, 5 years ago), leopard print scarf from ebay ($7), white cardigan from Korea ($10), AA vneck tee ($10), secondhand BDG jeans ($10), Nine West boots ($65).


You guys will be seeing this uniform of a tshirt, cardi, skinnies, boots, and a scarf with that big coat a lot because I'll admit...I'm not very good with winter attire. I mean, I've survived past Utah winters in Uggs!!! We'll have to make sure that mistake doesn't happen again. Anyway, I've got tons of studying to do that I put off yesterday (oops!) but I hope you are all having a great start to the week!!

  1. I love the scarf and jeans, cute boots and coat too. nice cardigan as well. I have the same issue with winter/cold weather because since I live in Florida, it's rarely cold, so I usually wear a long sleeve tee, hooded sweatshirt or a jacket, jeans, and sneakers, flats, and maybe boots. This winter/cold weather time, I'm trying to break it. You look amazing either way though. Glad you had a good birthday, and I hope the rest of your week is great as well :)

  10. You look great! I wonder how I will fare in Chicago winter... I have a *giant* puffy coat (like yours but practically down to my ankles) that I wear when it is super cold. It might not look super fashionable but it allows me to wear a lot more range-wise underneath.

  11. I love puffy coats, shame I'd just look silly in one! It looks absolutely awesome on you though.

  14. My winter uniform is sweaters whenever I can, and my multi-colored set of hat, gloves and scarf.
    I've been tempted to get boots like Uggs just because they look soooo cozy, but I've held out pretty well so far.

  18. I love the skinnies and booties combo, so adorable! I know exactly what you mean by having trouble styling in the winter - it's just so hard to be warm and stylish at the same time! :) Oh, and happy belated, I hope you had an amazing one.

  21. Boots are delightful. And I'm jealous of your perfectly coiffed bangs. And believe me..I was just about as surprised at finding those oxfords at Savers as if I saw a pig flying.
