Style Steps: Winter Edition

In honor of the first day of winter, here are some of my favorite winter outfits that I turn to time and time again throughout the season.

1. My Winter Staples:

I wake up every morning with the intention of wearing something different hoping that I’ll look like I just stepped out of my Pinterest page.

Instead I put on my favorite old jeans, a sweater, and boots. They’re winter must-haves for me along with a puffy coat (the longer the better).

I used to feel like I was wearing a sleeping bag for a coat but now I can’t live without my long puffy coat because it blocks the wind and keeps my legs warm too. A hat, scarf, and gloves are all necessary on a wintry day.

Gloves, sweater, beanie, boots, leg warmers, jeans, scarf, coat.

2.  Grown up Plaid:

Plaid made a huge comeback this year with the resurgence of 90’s grunge and I don’t hate it.

I actually kind of, sort of, love it. Plaid skirts, plaid scarves, plaid hats, plaid shirts. Gimme!

This is my version of a grown up school girl. I’ll pair a skirt with thick tights or even two pairs and leg warmers in the winter. Sometimes you just don’t want to wear jeans.

Sweater, stud earrings, rings, tights, skirt, boots, bow.

3. Going Out:

Once the temperature drops, one of the last the last things I want to do is put on weather inappropriate clothing and go out into the snow.

I go into hibernation mode and don’t want to come out of my house.

I saw this jumpsuit today and thought it would make a great going out outfit, especially for the winter months, because your legs are still covered and you’re wearing something other than skinny jeans, heels, and a tank top (i.e. unofficial night out uniform).
