When it comes to my winter wardrobe, there’s not a lot of differentiation when it comes to my daily outfits. Normally, I’m dressing myself in the same situation each day – skinny jeans, ankle booties, & some sort of knit layer with a heavy puffer coat on top. While I still don’t see much of a change from the overdone & regular, I did opt to try two new styles in the outerwear & boot departments that I’m delightfully pleased about & excited to share with you all today.
I didn’t see myself going for this kind of outerwear vibe but once I felt the softness of this faux-fur material, how could I not..? To be fair, I don’t see this as an everyday winter outerwear choice for myself when the temps hit below 40 degrees; but in terms of wearing around the house, as an extra layer instead a cardigan, or during the Spring, this poncho is an excellent choice! I’ve also found wearing a thin, long-sleeved top (or bodysuit) underneath to be the most effective layer, especially for when you plan to take it off when indoors.
This poncho I’m wearing is from Johnston & Murphy & unfortunately sold out, but below are a few more turtleneck styles I found during my online browsing:
THE ROPER BOOT
This particular pair of high-ankle boots caught my eye when I was in the Johnston & Murphy showroom helping T find a new sports jacket/blazer for our upcoming trip to London (he ended up going with this super sharp one here.) I was looking for something different than all my other pairs of ankle boots that was still stylish as it was comfortable to wear all day long. Needless to say, I ONLY wore this pair on our London trip throughout the 3 days of endless walking (& many rainstorms) because they were so so comfortable! Definitely the perfect boot for all-day wear in the city. I find pairing with skinny jeans show off its height & shape best, along with darker indigo, grey, & faded black washes to emphasize its color leather.
Ps, this Lenora style also comes in black and a lighter brown (I’m wearing the dark brown) + is currently on sale! I recommend sizing up 1/2 if you want a comfier fit, as I found the women’s shoes to run on the narrow side from J&M.
