cold weather essentials puffer jacket and boots

  1. Cute outfit for this cold weather. Has
    been bitter here in Minnesota. Been wearing my puffer coat if I do have to go out. Have those jeans in red, after you did the blog with the classic style series with Princess Diana. Love them.

    Appreciate you mentioning Texas today. SE Texas is connected to everyone, everywhere, in the nation experiencing this winter event. The fleece-lined leggings look I chose as my go-to look this season is keeping me toasty warm so far. Your expertise on how to handle extreme cold is of great value, Beth. Your healthy, vibrant look is inspirational, too! Am aiming to look well after this challenge is history. Thanks!~

    Thank you for your wonderful tips and classic looks. I just wanted to mention that, living in St. Petersburg, FL, we seldom have a chance to wear a puffer coat, but I do have two lightweight puffer vests that I put on many times when It’s chilly in the morning or evening. Mine are so light I can tuck them into my purse when the temps get higher.
    I love the boots you wore here, but canvas or that weight shoes work best most of the time. And as to tights, I have my regular tights or leggings, and then the heavier weight that I only wear when I am out of town.
    Can you tell we’re a little jealous here of your cooler temperatures? Hard to believe on a cold day like today.

    I so enjoy your blog! Finally, someone is showing classic styles for ladies of our age!!Love the puffer jacket but the chevron pattern, gray & black coat you were wearing yesterday is fabulous. Who makes this beautiful coat?

    My problem with a puffer jacket/coat is that I don’t want to look that puffy! They always make me feel like the Michelin man. And a jacket doesn’t really do much to keep me warm in below zero temps with so much (half my body!) left out in the cold.
    The other issue with most puffers is they are too slick and I tend to drop things that I’m trying to hold close to my body (like bags of groceries perhaps).
    The good thing about puffers is that they are virtually weightless, unlike the old wool coats and jackets I wore growing up. Those old coats took forever to dry once the snow or ice melted into them, too. And they didn’t smell all that good while drying.

    Boots are essential since they have thicker soles and nice furry linings (usually).

    Enjoy your Ga. winter………..below zero here in Kansas!

    Fourteen inches of snow in Olympia Washington over the weekend. Today, it is almost gone and beautiful sunshine. My puffer coat works every couple of years. Your look is classic perfection! Now to pinch back the primroses that got a touch of frost bite!

    Our cabin in the Sierras got a ton of snow a few weeks ago. Several feet of heavy, wet snow. Took down at least one tree on more than half the properties in the development, with several of them onto decks and/or houses. We lost the top half of a 100ft white pine, which landed onto our roof. Thankfully one of the big rafters took the impact and held firm, it does not seem like any structural damage, though we still got a 3 inch hole and had water coming in, and several other small punctures, and the roofing guy is recommending replacement of the whole flat part of the roof (double gambrel style). Lets hope insurance will help! And we count ourselves lucky as pictures we’ve seen show significant damage to other homes. Also, we weren’t there, as that noise of tree snapping, then hitting, and the impact shake I’m sure would have been terrifying. Not to mention loss of power for 8 days. Some streets lost every single power line.

    Love the Ralph Lauren boots. So glad I bought them last year after seeing you wear them. They were perfect for my swollen ankle and foot after my surgeries. The red laces are a fun touch. We got our first real snow today that was enough to bring out the serious boots. Thanks so much for all your great fashion ideas

    Your boots look like Pajar boots from Quebec. Pajar make excellent footwear and jackets….temperature rated for those who live where it is cold and need to know
