the things i wear for winter

By 1/10/2017

thankfully, this winter i have my wardrobe on repeat with some go-to items that never let me down. let's go over them and you can do with it what you will, mmkay?

1 - isabel marant crisi ankle boots - i can't find these in the black leather anymore, but there are still several colors available.  they are the. most. comfortable., with just enough of a wedge to give you some height.  2 - i can't splurge on the real deal, so these bauble bar knock-offs have been my go to this winter to add a little jangle to evenings.  i have a couple of colors to switch things up.  3 - for the 509th time, i'll tell you how much i love these faux leather leggings from shopbop.  a super steal at $98, they're great in the cold and perfect with a big comfy sweater.

1 - a couple of months ago, i stocked up on baggy sweaters from sheinside.  they're practically free, so i went with several different colors, and i wear them on the reg.  super cozy, and easy - you can throw them in the wash.  2 - i was due for a new leather jacket, so i bought this one in the fall and it's finally worn in nicely.  i think it's a good price at under $400 for real leather.  3 - we're melting here in NC today - there wasn't much snow, but it was extra-freezing, so the ice hung around.  these sorel boots are great if you're going to be outdoors in the snow - i'm headed to aspen later this week so they'll definitely get packed.  4 - when i find something that works, i stick with it.  yal know rag & bone newbury boots are a classic for me.  i love this new grey suede color.  5- this topshop dress is an easy option for a night out with tights, or not if you're brave.  the fit is super-flattering.

1 - super basic, but extra chic, i surprisingly always get comments on this white blouse.  (wearing it with the leather leggings again.) 2 - i love these burberry sneakers so much.  the big buckle and python skin make them extra fly.

1 - if it's not too cold, i'll wear these mother denim jeans several times a week.  the fit is great and i love the length, plus the frayed hem. (if it's extra cold, these are perfect in black)  2 - madewell flannels are a winter go-to for me. under sweaters always, or maybe open with a tee underneath.  (they're on major sale right now!) 3 - my jcrew stadium jacket is still kicking it and keeping me warm - it was a great buy last season (they run big, so go down a size or two).


  1. Are the leggings true to size? Thank you!

    1. i think they run a bit small. i went up a size. the legs are fine, but the waist is tight.
