Happy Monday friends! I’m nursing a hoagie hangover from last night’s Super Bowl. I’m still in total shock over my home town’s historic win! My poor Boston loving husband was so gracious about it, so I am going to enjoy every moment of this today, too! Now, let’s chat Winter Outerwear Staples.
That darn groundhog saw his shadow, so that means we have six more weeks of Winter ahead for us. When we decided to move to Atlanta, we definitely had visions of mild, jacket-free Winter weather. We were a little off with that and I have been scrambling to restock my cold weather gear that I donated pre-move.
In general, I spend a little more on my outerwear because I want it to last longer. I don’t buy new coats, vest, boots, etc. every year. I will typically buy one new piece (i.e. a parka or new scarf) each year.
I’m also picky about my retailers. I personally prefer Nordstrom for their North Face selection, Back Country for Patagonia, Zappos for boots and J.Crew for dressier pieces. I usually snap up a couple of inexpensive, trendier vest from Old Navy every year too. However, I find that they don’t wash or wear well, so they typically only last me that year.
This is what I try to have in my permanent rotation, in neutral colors usually:
- Warm puffy coat
- Dressy coat
- Waterproof boots
- Heavy Scarf
- Thick knit hat
