It is cold out. REALLY cold out. So when this time of year comes around and outerwear is an absolute must it can well, for lack of a better word, be ugly. I miss the days when you just head out of the door with maybe a scarf because it looked cool. It takes me much longer to get out of the house with so many layers. Packing up your heels in your purse and putting on the old man winter boots. So I figure, why not make it fun? When I first spotted this jacket at J.Crew, that’s immediately what I had thought. It’s fun and festive and will certainly brighten my days throughout the greys of winter. Throw in some winter white (my fave!) and some vintage fur and you’re immediately more happy than being in that down jacket that everyone else in the world wears.
Disclosure: these photos were not taken during our current Polar Vortex, that would just be insane. Nor does this outfit now seem appropriate for our Canadian winter – ah well, it was at the time!
