Cold Front Coffee Date

 Coffee date… with my computer! Fleece-lined leggings and a faux fur scarf help fight the below-freezing temperatures, and chambray keeps this ‘everyday’ look classic and casual.  I like pairing layered necklaces, long and short, with long loose tops because they dress it up and add some definition (I’m constantly wearing this gold bar necklace I recently purchased at an adorable—and affordable—boutique in upstate NY). Layers are essential this time of year in New England, so I added a cozy blue thermal under the chambray, which creates a nice textured and layered look, and tall cable knit socks with my no-nonsense winter boots. These fleece-lined leggings are so comfortable and perfect for any casual outing, like a trip to the local coffee shop, or even for hanging around the house when it’s just too cold to go outside! With a hot coffee in my hand I’m all set to stay warm while I write!

And can I take a moment to mention my infatuation with the faux-fur trend this winter? I love the pops of fur accents infusing this season’s cozy outfits, whether in the form of vests, scarves, wraps, or trim. Faux fur accessories are a smart way to keep your casual wintery outfits elegant and stylish without having to compromise on warmth. So naturally I had to borrow this snood scarf from my mom (and she won’t be getting it back any time soon).

  1. Having just read your entire blog (SO fun), I think this is my favorite outfit. Besides the orange dress of course. And maybe it's just the sub freezing temps outside, but that scarf is totally calling my name. Can't wait to see this blog develop, Char!! xx
