We have now entered the part of the year during which my posted outfits clash with the current weather. I’ve got a small backlog, though, so please bear with a few more snowy shots!

The new style direction has really taken its toll on my Fluevog collection. All that remain now are this pair, my Haight sandals, and my Heidis. The bag is fairly new, and I would never have guessed that it would be a near-perfect match for the boots. Unexpected bonus!

Denim jackets are surprisingly contentious. I’ve always maintained that a basic blue denim jacket is a classic piece that most women can use and wear, but just before the double-denim trend exploded all over us, many disagreed with me. This jacket is a meet-in-the-middle option: Denim material, but biker shape. A possible alternative for those who flash back to the big-shoulder 80s whenever they see a Levi’s trucker!

Are you a lover of classic denim jackets? Hope to never wear one again? Indifferent? Would you wear denim jackets that don’t look like denim jackets?

We’ve entered the brutally cold, seemingly endless days of late winter, and I’m having to get creative with my layering. Honestly, on the -30 degree windchill days – of which we’ve had many so far – I’m wearing a variation of this or this. Exclusively. Nothing beats Icelandic wool. But on days when it’s a balmy -10 or above, I’ve been layering sweaters under my jackets. This Woolovers turtleneck is a favorite due to that nice high, snug collar. I love the look of cowls, but man, they are useless in a high wind. All the coldness just slinks its way down your body starting at your collarbone.

I know many of you are coping with awful cold and ridiculous winter storms. Care to share any layering tips?
