Snowy Days

So this post is a bit belated, but these pictures are from when the winter storm Jonas hit the other week. I always get excited about snow until I have to return back to actual life with a foot of snow on the ground. Nonetheless, a day off of school and a weekend spent sledding, watching movies, spending time with the roomies was definitely welcomed.

Anyways, my roommate and I decided to go out and try to get cute pictures in the snow. It was kind of a fail due to how miserable it was outside, but it was still fun. I wanted to share some of the few successful pictures and talk about some of my favorite winter gear. In an ideal universe I would frequently make more outfit posts, but ugh I just hate getting my picture taken...


(lol so awk)


 

Outfit Details: Topshop Duffle Coat (old similar here, here, and here) // Zara scarf (similar) // J.Crew Factory Jeans (similar)  // Hunter boots and boot socks // Target hat // Anthropologie mittens

First off, let me say that winter clothes are my favorite. I can never have enough sweaters, mittens, hats, gloves, coats, etc. I just love how cozy and how cute everything is!

 Starting off this coat is probably my favorite piece in my closet. I got this coat back in high school and I am still just as obsessed with it now as I was then. I could seriously go on about how much I am obsessed with it. I just love everything about this coat from plaid lining, the cuffed sleeves, the fact that the hood attaches with buttons, and that is mostly wool. I could also go on about my love for wool coats but I'll spare you.

Enough about my coat, another thing I have also been loving knit hats with furry pom poms. I am typically not into fur, but for some reason I really like the fur pom poms, they're just so cute!

Onto my boots, Hunter boots are not the best for cold, snowy weather. They have good traction but apart from that, once the rubber gets cold there is not hope for your feet even with the boot socks. But, nonetheless I think they're cute and I love the hunter green color as it literally goes with everything. And of course the boot socks add a cute, cozy touch.

I also got this blanket scarf from Zara for Christmas. I've been into the idea of blanket scarves but I'm still not 100% convinced I can pull them off, also scarves drive me crazy too. But they are definitely a great cozy option for cold days!

This was kind of a weird rambly post, but I hope you enjoyed!

What's your favorite wintery clothing pieces?

Thanks for reading!!
