if ever there was a time for puffer jackets this is the perfect week. for the first time in weather history, the entire state of Texas is under winter storm warnings. more than 40 states are affected by this winter blast that’s left snow, ice, dangerously cold temps, and power outages in its wake. Seattle reported its snowiest day in 52 years! temperatures nationwide are 50 degrees colder than normal. time to stay home, bundle up, and make hot cocoa. but let’s not forget cold-weather essentials, puffer jackets and boots that come to our rescue if we venture outside.
Georgia has been spared the snow, ice, and freezing temps. instead, we had rain and more rain with a high of 39 degrees. although the sun is slated to make an appearance this afternoon. but that’s chilly enough to don this puffer jacket that’s been on style repeat all winter long. first, it was paired with black jeans, and suede booties read classic style series Princess Diana, then it came to the beach with a pair of red boots read what to wear to the beach in winter. today, the jacket was reversed to black for a completely different look. how’s that for versatility?
today’s ootd is perfect for that cold weather that arrived with a vengeance. one aspect of this water-resistant puffer jacket that i love is the detachable hood. hoods are perfect to ward off rain, snow, or sleet and won’t leave you with hat hair. although if i were braving single digits, i’d have a hat and hood on! and a scarf with a pair of toasty warm gloves. i still remember how to brave those blustery days in style.
a cashmere turtleneck is perfect for a layer of warmth. add a pair of wax-coated black jeans and a pair of black boots lined with faux fur (old, similar here and here), and i’m ready to face the elements. at least in my neck of the woods…
stay warm, ladies. stay safe!
