A snowy #ootd and winter favorites
It’s snowed twice this week in New York and I’m actually okay with the wintery weather considering how mild it’s been lately. I’ve also been accumulating winter gear to fight my constant coldness, so here are some of my favorite items.
If I look somewhat comfortable sitting in snow in the middle of winter, it’s all thanks to this Eddie Bauer coat. It was a gift from Reed and I love it – I’m always cold and this jacket keeps me warm even on 20 degree days. There are so many thoughtful details as well, like fuzzy cuffs and lined pockets, a double zipper, removable hood, chest pocket for easy access, and the longer length. If you’re looking for a high-quality winter parka, I think this one checks all the boxes.
My mom gave me these adorable Chenille Fingerless Gloves at Thanksgiving and they’ve been so useful! They keep my hands warm but I can still text, quickly snap a photo, or easily get out my metrocard. Normal gloves are generally too long for my fingers and end up being awkward and bulky on me, so I absolutely love these. They’re also super soft and trendy because chenille is really popular this winter.
Lastly, these Sorel boots have been just as great for snowy days here in the city as they are for trekking on a ski trip in Vermont. They’re warm, comfortable, and stable on slippery sidewalks. I also think they’re pretty cute for snow boots. Mine are last year’s Quarry Gray version, but I’ve linked to this year’s updated pair in the same colorway.
I’d love to hear about your favorite winter items or tips on staying warm below!
