Adrien: It's Still Winter.

I generally dress for the weather but I have my limits. Last weekend we got a foot of snow and this weekend it was in the 50s and 60s and I saw a girl stumbling through a filthy pile of slushy snow in flip flops. IN FLIP FLOPS. I mean, I know it's warm but it's also still WINTER.  So:

I started with my Heavyweight Tee from Everlane which I like because it's warmer than just a t-shirt and holds a good traditional breton top shape. They also have this boxy striped tee which might be a nice option come spring. For now, heavyweight works great for warmish winter days. I'm wearing it with my black high waisted Banana Republic jeans. Banana might be weird right now, but the denim is pretty solid.

I'm wearing the same old BR necklace I've been wearing but this little House of Harlow pendant is nicely similar.  Giles and Brother skinny railroad spike cuffs are on my wrist. Then I added a bag:

This is my Cambridge Satchel Co twist lock bag in oxblood and it's the perfect weekend crossbody. (FYI, Cambridge has a great sale going on right now. I'm sorry.) If you're looking for something similar but less pricey, the pushlock version is less expensive and this one by the Leather Satchel Company is on sale!

Because it's still winter, I wore my new Barbour scarf and my old reliable J.Crew Downtown Field Jacket. (Why doesn't J.Crew make a lined winter version? Something like this. Or I could just buy a Barbour, I guess.) Please note the lack of flip flops. 


I saved my boots for last! They're my UGG Lynnea clog boots. I almost sold them last fall but then I tried them on and decided they still sparked joy and whatnot so I kept them. They're fleece on the inside, which is lovely:

You can probably find a pair on eBay (which I linked above) but there are other options. First: I am IN LOVE with this French Connection pair. Ugh, so good. Anthro also has a couple different clog boot options though sizing is really limited. This Dankso pair isn't quite my style but I'll bet they're comfortable and the Lotta from Stockholm site has some cute boots as well. Ugg apparently doesn't have a Lynnea update but this pair of Ugg ankle boots looks similarly cozy and a big old hell yes to this cute pair as well. It's still winter, after all.

  1. I have a pair of Ugg Lynnea boots (mine are black suede). I had sort of forgotten about them so far this winter, and now I know what I'm wearing tomorrow . . .
