I am enjoying this warm spell, I hope it keeps going at this rate!  I like getting wear out of my lather jackets and during the winter use them as a layering piece over my tops and between the heavy outer coat - the layers help trap air and stay warm. (I know, in other news, water is wet!  Stating the obvious, nice job Katie.)

It's Too Much

Helmut Lang Coat (ebay) / Isabel Marant for H&M Top (ebay) / JBrand Velvet Pants (ebay) / Seychelles Boots (old)

Yikes, I really over did my eye makeup here - it's like high school graduation all over again when my mom told me not to put on so much eyeliner and me being a logical teen, put EVEN MOAR ON!   Not such a good look it turns out.

Still Snowing

UO Hat / Eddie Buar Bag (thrifted) / Old Navy Scarf / Helmut lang (ebay) / French Connection Sweater (thrifted) / Isabel Marant Skirt / UGG Boots (thrifted)
I wear this scarf a lot, it's one of my favorites now because of the colors - I love burgundy, blue, black and white together and since I gravitate towards these colors, it makes matching my winter wardrobe easy. (The scarf is super soft and warm, totally worth it for me.)

Short On Time

UO Hat / Old Navy Scarf / Helmut Lang Coat (ebay) / Madewell Silk Top (thrifted) / Paige Velvet Pants (ebay) / Vince Boots (consignment) / Coach Bag (gift, thrifted)

Our days are pretty short right now, only 1.5 to 2 hours of real daylight, a little twilight on the ends and then darkness.  We're close to the winter solstice where we'll have maybe an hour of light but after that, we start gaining it back.  That's awesome because if we only had 2 hours of light during the coldest months of Jan and Feb, it would be miserable and depressing.  That little bit of sunlight makes a big difference.

Warm Spell

Fred Meyer Cap / Old Navy Scarf / Helmut Lang Coat (ebay) / Isabel Marant Top (ebay) / Zara Pants (thrifted) / Vera Wang Boots (consignment) / Alexander Wang Bag (ebay)
We've have some unusually warm weather this winter, the past two week have been bouncing between 20-40 degrees above zero - very warm for December!   I'm enjoying not freezing this year although now I've said it, it's probably going to plunge to -60f.

UO Hat / All Saints Jacket (ebay) / French Connection Sweater (thrifted) / Isabel Marant Skirt (ebay) / UGG Boots (thrifted) / Mulberry Bag (ebay) / Old Navy Scarf
These might be my favorite boots of all time just because they are so warm and comfortable.  I really like how stable it is to walk in the wedge heel and they are just so warm in the winter.  (And I actually really like they way they look, even if they are basic.)
