Walking In A Winter Wonderland

Over the weekend, we got a little winter wonderland.  I went to a blogger brunch and came outside to this!  I've always wanted to do a shoot in the snow and despite the cold, it was fun.  The inner child in me really wanted to build a snowman!  Let me just say I do not always walk in the snow in heels because I would bust my behind.  I wear my rain boots and then switch into my heels when I get to wherever I have to be :) 









Coat: Tommy Hilfiger c/o / Leggings: Zara
Boots: (old)ShoeDazzle (similar style)/ Hat: H&M (similar)
Bag: Phillip Lim For Target 


Originally, I was planning to shoot in the outfit I wore to the brunch.  But because of the weather, I just decided to focus on my outerwear which I haven't really done much of before.  My top 3 winter essentials are: a long statement coat, tall boots, and a hat.  One of my fondest memories of my father was going coat shopping around this time every year.  He always got me a new coat for Christmas and more than anything, I just loved spending that quality time during the holidays with him as we went shopping together.   I used to drag him to a bunch of stores! I remember the first peacoat he got me and I still have it hanging in my closet.  I've always been big on coats and definitely look at them as an investment piece for winter.  When you get a really good one, they will last for so many years.  I get tired of plain black ones, so something like this is such a stand out piece.  It's a great way to look winter chic. 

I've mentioned previously that I have had these boots for a few years now and I still love them.  Tall boots are the best for staying both warm and stylish at the same time.  I've also gotten a lot of use out of this hat over the last month or so.  I am completely obsessed with wide brim hats, especially for winter.   Sometimes wearing hats can be a little snug on our heads, so I actually got this one in a large for extra room and it never bothers me.  If you follow me on instagram, then you probably saw a photo I posted from the brunch.  That's what I had on under this coat :)

Hope that all of you have an amazing day!

  10. Brrr, just looking at all of the snow is giving me the shivers, we still have a lot here. I adore the coat and I really do agree with you on investing on them for the winter. It's something you're always going to need and you don't want something that's going to fall apart. The one you are wearing is so cute, I love the print and it looks so cozy and warm. I'm also really loving the hat as well! Beautiful as always. :)
