I don’t know about you, but I find it dreadfully challenging to dress when it is ridiculously cold multiple days in a row. A day or two here can actually be fun; you get to pull out those once-or-twice-a-season-super-warm-furry boots and maybe throw on a hat you completely forgot about. But when cold, frost-bite-inducing weather stays around for days on end? Now there is a challenge I’m ready for.
A few of my strategies for getting excited about getting ready on a cold morning (or any morning, really):
1. Breakfast and coffee for a jump start
2. Mixing new and old or high and low pieces from my wardrobe
3. Styling my hair differently than the way it was any other day this week
4. A spritz of great perfume
Jacket – Milly, Skirt – an old standby from H&M, Boots – Banana Republic
Hair: straight with curled ends and a just shy of center part.
Friday: Dress – Calvin Klein, Earrings – Stella & Dot, Shoes – JCrew (pleeeeease bring back the Mona pumps! I would buy so many more pairs!)
Hair – a fun, twisty updo
Monday: Dress – Ann Taylor, Shoes – Dolce Vita
Hair: straight, bent ends, center part
Tuesday: Top – JCrew, Sweater – unknown, Skirt – H&M (see, told you it was a standby!), Necklace – Ann Taylor
Hair: French braid (tucked in)
Jacket – Greylin, Top – Gap, Skirt – Phillip Lim
Hair: pin straight, side part
That’s all for now! Let’s see what inspires me for the remainder of the week!
