It’s Let’s Look Wednesday!
I’m linking up with Mix and Match Mama and A Little Bit of Everything to peek at some of the stuff in our lives!
Today, we’re talking about our winter wardrobe.
Okay you guys – I have been training for this post for my whole life.
I’m from Buffalo. I lived in NY state for 32 years. I’ve lived in PA for 5 years.
I’ve never not known winter.
You want to know how we dress for winter?
Layers. Lots and lots of layers.
Let’s start with base layers.
If you’re playing outside in the snow, going to be outside for an extended period of time, you need to wear warm base layers.
I bought this top awhile ago, but it’s nice and warm. It also covers up the bottom of your neck, so there’s nothing exposed if your scarf moves a little. And these leggings are really clutch, because they have a light fuzzy feeling on the inside to keep you extra warm.
I wore this on the day we walked around Boston in 12 degree weather. It was the perfect outfit because the top didn’t look strange under this fleece. And for some reason, my jeans were totally fine despite me having leggings on underneath.
I did put socks on when we went out and these Sperry ones are always so warm and keep my feet nice and toasty all day.
This winter, I’m loving these JCrew sweaters. I have them in a bunch of colors now and I definitely am wearing them once a week. They are heavy but not bulky.
I have been on the fence with these booties for awhile now because they are a little bit expensive. I splurged on them before we went to Boston and I am so happy that I have them.
They’re warm, they’re cute, and I could walk all over Boston in them without issue.
A total winner in my book!
Sweater | Similar Jeans | Booties
How many times can I wear these Free People sweaters in various colors before it’s inappropriate and people wonder if it’s my uniform?
Hat | Coat | Boots
Finally – outerwear!
I feel like Uggs are controversial because some people like them and some don’t. I’ll give you my honest opinion here.
I have had these Uggs for the last 3 years and wear them all the time on cold, snowy days. They keep my feet warm with and without socks. They’ve held up to the elements (rain, regular snow, ice, sloppy snow) and don’t look like they’re 9 million years old.
I will probably wear these ones until they let water inside.
And then I’ll cry.
For perspective – I do have Hunter boots and love those. But they aren’t true “winter” boots. Even with the liners, my feet are always freezing in them.
So that’s my winter wardrobe – lots of layers and sweaters.
Can’t wait to see what you guys have been wearing! 🙂
In January, we talked about what we have on our bedside table.
