It’s true that when there are snow days all you want is a cup of hot cocoa, movies and blankets and the last thing you are thinking about is how to look cute when going out. When I just moved to Minnesota, during my first years of college, I spent hours thinking about what outfits to wear and I always found myself debating between looking cute or feeling warm.
But after years of living in Minne-SNOW-ta, I have learned that you don’t really need to go out of your way and that you can look cute and feel great at the same time. Life would have been so much easier if someone would have said that before…oh well!
Today the weather was below 0 which is not a surprise here, I decided to go with this beautiful lavender winter jacket from Calvin Klein, I absolutely love this puffy winter coat because is not only warm and cute but most importantly, it’s my favorite color PURPLE. When I try to pick jackets, I always go for more of an oversized fit so I can layer it with sweaters and vest, depending on the weather. The size of this jacket is XSP which I would consider to be TTS.
Since I wanted the jacket to be the main accessory, I decided to just wear a simple pair of jeans from Banana Republic (size 0P), one of my favorite pair of boots from Nordstrom (you can find a similar pair here) and one of my go to cross body bag from Louis Vuitton. Whether you’re headed to weekend brunch with friends, or just go out to run errands this is the perfect outfit and who said you can’t wear pastels colors in Winter?
