it’s finally cold here in Athens. i know, i know “cold” is a relative notion, but we’ve hit the freezing mark the past few days, and i’m trying to stay warm. my oldest has it particularly bad: he’s been in California the past 10 years, and well, he can’t handle anything below 50 degrees. sad, huh? not to worry: we’ll toughen him up. is it chilly where you are? colder than here? then this post is for you. as we head into winter, stay warm in this outfit featuring a cashmere turtleneck and wool sweater coat from Anthropologie.
this wool sweater coat was featured in last week’s fridays with oscar. there were lot’s of positive feedback, so i decided to give you an alternative styling this week. today, i’ve paired the coat with a cashmere turtleneck and A-Line skirt (old, similar here, here and here). for extra warmth, i’ve pulled in a pair of tights from Talbots. (but any pair will do.)
i’m totally in love with these boots from Stuart Weitzman purchased last year – they’re pricey but sometimes a girl’s gotta splurge. but there’s a similar pair at Nordstrom. i particularly like the patrick boots as they have a side zip and a reasonable price point. but no matter what the price tag a pair of black boots are a must-have come winter. they’re on winter repeat and have shown up on the blog before: you can see them styled alternatively with a denim skirt. (and make sure to head over to Nordstrom for a preview of their Black Friday and Cyber Monday inventory.)
practically speaking, these boots make the entire outfit perfectly suited for colder temperatures. and they’re further accentuated by pairing them with a leather satchel. it appears Nordstrom is having a difficult time keeping it in stock, but you can find similar ones as well.
Thanksgiving isn’t even here, and of course, we’re talking about Christmas. for those of you that celebrate Christmas, i’m always curious as to where you purchase and when you put up your tree. do you go to a tree farm? do you cut down your own? is it small? tall? somewhere in-between? do you put it up the day after Thanksgiving? the first week of December? let me know in the comments below.
that’s a wrap, gang! happy, happy tuesday! two more days until turkey day. can’t wait for those mashed potatoes.
