Staying Warm and Comfy



No matter where you live, I’m sure you’ve heard by now that the North East is experiencing some of the coldest temps it’s seen in 20 years.  As a result winter’s must have item is a down coat, puffer, parka, anorak or whatever you choose to call it.  Regardless of the name, the key is warmth and comfort.  

At 31 weeks pregnant, I sized out of my current puffer and opted to buy a regular coat and size up as opposed to buying a maternity style.  I loved this RALPH LAUREN  one as soon as I saw it last week at LORD & TAYLOR- it was just my size and on super sale.  It’s still listed as full price online but in store I got it for more than 50% off.  My hope is that next year I can cinch the draw string waist and still be able to wear it. 

In keeping with the comfort theme, I can’t get enough of these Gap Maternity SUPER SOFT TEE’S.  They are just the right length and thickness and... surprise, super soft.  I’m sure the NON-MATERNITY version is just as comfy. 

Besides the tee, I am wearing two more of my current wardrobe favorites.  These SAM EDELMAN “PETTY” BOOTIES have been my go to since the beginning of fall.   They are comfortable and look super cute with  practically anything from dresses to jeans and ankle length pants.  I have them in Black Suede and this Deep Saddle and plan to purchase them in Putty for Spring.  You’ve seen me wear a large tote more than once.  I find them to be the perfect bag for Winter since they are roomy enough to hold your gloves, scarves and hats when you are inside.  I bought this one which is sold out at J.CREW a couple of months ago, but they have this DEEP RED one still on sale. 

For as many puffers as you see out on the streets you'll hear a complaint about the snow and cold.  I myself am guilty as charged.  It’s nice though to remember to get out there every so often and enjoy the snow covered scenery and have a little fun which is precisely what Roman and I did this past weekend.  And it’s definitely best enjoyed when you are comfy and warm.
