Okay, I lied. I hate the cold. Like….REALLY hate the cold. My ideal indoor temperature is 76ºF (much to the chagrin of basically anyone I know) and I would take sweating out of every gland on my body over being even slightly chilly.
That being said, it’s a cold one today after the first snowstorm of the season. I find myself watching Sawyer in envy as she prances around the snow with her thick fur coat impervious to the cold.
Dave and I are taking a quick weekend trip to Pennsylvania for a quiet weekend (and some Malvern Buttery!) and even though it’s a high of 30ºF today and I’m not armored with a Golden Retriever’s fur coat, I do have lots of excuses now to wear my new favorite winter jacket and pom pom beanie.
My grey Chateau Parka from J. Crew will forever hold a special place in my heart since it’s what I wore when Dave proposed a few weeks ago. Even though he made me promise not to start wedding planning until January, I may or may not have convinced him to “casually” look at a venue today while in my hometown. We’re narrowing the shortlist down and I can’t wait to share with you all the location and our plans when we officially book it!
In the meantime, shop my look below for some of my favorite winter necessities to keep you warm (and stylish!) as we head into Christmas. I’ve included my lip color below too, because it’s from one of my favorite non-toxic make-up companies, 100% Pure. If you eat as much of your lipstick as I do, you should be wearing something that’s all-natural and safe.
J. Crew Chateau Parka in Heather Dusk: Tip: I’m usually a size 2 in J. Crew clothing, but the arms on this one are tight, so I sized up to a 6 in order to be able to wear my chunky sweaters underneath!
Banana Republic Chunky Cable Knit Sweater in Camel
Banana Republic Petite High-Rise Skinny Jean
Cole Haan Zerogrand Hiker Boot (Mine are from a few seasons ago so they don’t have the exact ones in stock anymore, but these ones are basically the same with the addition of a fur cuff!)
Rebecca Minkoff Chevron Quilted Small Love Crossbody in Cherrywood
FurTalk Winter Knit Hat with Detachable Pom Pom
100% Pure Fruit-Pigmented Cocoa Butter Matte Lipstick in Mojave
I hope this weekend finds you cozied up somewhere with the ones you love. We’ll be ordering take-out as a test run from one of our venue options tonight and I’m looking forward to being able to share with you more wedding deats soon!
