The day these pictures were taken I had a hair appointment and my hair stylist decided to straighten my hair. I do like it this way but I don't want to expose my hair to this much heat on a regular basis (my hair takes forever to straighten and I've had ruined it in the past!) so I am back to my stubborn natural wavy hair. I didn't plan on taking pictures on this day, but my husband was on vacation and the pictures were his idea.
Everything I'm wearing in today's post is older so no direct links, but I did try to find similar options for those of you interested.
I purchased this sweater by Caslon from Nordstrom at the beginning of this year so it's no longer available. It's the prettiest shade of pink and soooo soft! While this specific sweater is no longer available, I did spot this beautiful sweater at Nordstrom, although not a V-neck but loving those pretty details on the sleeves! It does run large so you might want to size down if you decide to order it. I've added a couple more options below.
This light (almost white) warm-gray puffer coat is my go-to winter coat. It's by Calvin Klein, purchased a couple seasons ago. Wish I could link to it because this coat is so perfect for our cold midwestern winters! I did find several other puffer coats by Calvin Klein at Macy's but not this exact one. I do like this coat currently available at Nordstrom and it comes in a light gray tone (see color named Frost). If this light color isn't for you, it also comes in several other colors. I'm thinking about getting the black coat ... but I really don't need another coat and my closet space is limited. (I really want to replace an old dark brown coat I've had for years and no longer wear but keep hanging on to!)
TJMaxx also has a great variety of coats, and they currently ship orders of $30 or more for FREE (use code: SHIP30). And don't forget about Nordstrom Rack when looking for coats, I found the perfect winter coat for my son there last year.
These skinny jeans are from Banana Republic. Mine are a couple of years old but I imagine their current skinny jeans aren't much different. They do come in Tall and Petite sizes in addition to their regular lengths. PS: Currently you can take 40% off your order at Banana Republic no code needed (ends 12/9 11:59pm)
My boots are a hand me down from my dear daughter (how funny is that and how lucky am I!! I get to keep stuff from my sister AND my daughter 😄) I got these for her from Kohl's last year (SO brand) and she outgrew them before she could wear them more than a few times. I was going to donate them because they look somewhat similar to my Miz Mooz leather booties, but I decided to keep them for now because they are a little different after all and they fit me well. Of course they are no longer listed on their site and I could not find any similar boots. But while I was looking, I did see these hiking boots and really like them and they'd be perfect for winter weather!
This blanket scarf was a recommended add-on at Nordstrom when I purchased my Miz Mooz booties a while ago, and as you can see their sales tactic works as it made its way into my shopping cart :-) I thought the colors and houndstooth print were a perfect match for my outfit and since I am STILL having issues with my voice/cough from when I was sick at the end of October (mosty when I talk), I need to wear something warm around my neck. I did end up taking it off for the pictures because it's a huge scarf. Unfortunately I could not find anything similar, but did add few options at the end of this post that I liked.
My crossbody bag was a "like new" Goodwill find, you've seen it before if you've been following along. My necklace is an inexpensive double layer silver toned necklace. I purchased it a few weeks ago but don't remember where.
