{what to wear when it's cold}

I am much more concerned with limiting exposure of cold air during these months, than in looking sylish. I'm pretty sure my fashion game is WAY stronger during the warm months.  Although,all I want to do in the summer months is cover up with a large sweater....hmmmm, sensing a theme here.

But, I have found some cute stuff I wish I was wearing ....


I can't really wear this because I'm too short.  I look homeless. But I still like this look and try to pull off a modified version of it.   The key is the skinny jeans.  It's all about the silhouette.  Kind of reminds me of the 80's oversized look a bit.  I bought some great jeans from Old Navy; some fantastic sustainably made tennis shoes from Veja  in Spain.  And a great big over coat from Ralph Lauren that was on sale-sale during the pre-holiday rush.  You will find me wearing some version of this on most days, the only difference is, my arms will be in the sleeves. 


Again, looks simple but it has some key components.  the boatneck collar, chinos and simple hair.

Chino is the name of the brother from West Side Story. Which is one of my all time favorite movies and if you know me well, I might sing one of the songs for you.  Chinos are also like jeans.  good and reliable.  I get mine from Lands End.     A good boxy, boat neck sweater from here . or, I just bought this cute one from here! and to keep the boxy sweater from making ME look boxy, a simple low bun or ponytail is nice.  


A hunky, chunky, well made sweater.  This color preferably.   I found one that will last me a lifetime. (goals: to slowly replace all cheaply made things with well made, sustainably sourced, quality items...sigh)

I found mine at which is all of the above AND from their Emma Watson collection. Plus it was the warmest thing I've ever worn.  win-win.


Yay! Turtlenecks are back! They are the best! And not only because they were all the rage when I was in High School; but because they really are flattering and timeless.  The one I wear is black, a lá Audrey Hepburn, that was my mom's when she was young!
