Winter Layers

I wish I was featuring shorts and a long cardigan in this post, my ideal spring outfit. However; living in New England means it's still winter. Which also means snow and layers. Today I'm sharing my most worn winter look. One of my staples is a fitted plaid shirt. They are such a classic and preppy piece that never goes out of style. In fact, J.Crew factory (where my exact shirt is from) releases this same variation of plaid every year. I love it so much, I purchase it every year.
What's an item you are continuously purchasing?
If it was truly spring time, my other weakness are white tops.

Naturally, because of the snow yesterday, school was cancelled. On snow days, traditionally, B and I love to walk to the local pizza shop in town! They are always open, no matter the weather and have great food. There's also nothing like a walk in freshly fallen snow; it's truly breath-taking and so peaceful, despite the occasional car passing through. What's one of your snow day traditions?

Today's style tip: I get a lot of questions about the fit of my Hunter Boots. I own two pairs and absolutely love them. They are a "bulkier" fit, as they are designed for purpose. They are sturdy and keep my feet dry. I don't mind the looser fit, since I have muscular calves from my years of dance. I also love the variety of colors. They are such a statement & make a basic rainy day outfit more chic! Disclaimer: they are not insulated, so I always wear heavier knee socks (linked above) to keep my feet warm.



  1. I am "HOPING" for warmer weather - but always good to keep those winter pieces "on the ready"

  2. Some boots extend up the leg, sometimes as far as the knee or even the hip. thorogood roofer
