Winter Wonderland

coat: Ivanka Trump (similar), pants: Michael Kors, booties: Aldo (on sale and in black!), scarf: Nordstrom Rack (similar), gloves: Target, sunglasses: Burberry

Winter has struck North Carolina, for sure! I had Monday off, but I headed back from my hometown a little earlier than I usually do in hopes of beating the winter weather, and it met me as I arrived back into town. What started out as pretty snow quickly turned into a mixture of snow, sleet, and freezing rain. I woke up to a world of white, but it wasn't snow -- instead, a sheet of ice. I was able to work from home, which was great, because I was a little nervous to drive in the icy conditions. Most of NC was shut down yesterday, and many school systems are closed again today, and reports are saying we may get a dusting of snow, and temperatures will be around 0 degrees tomorrow night. Of course, this is nothing like our friends in the northeast have been hit with the past few weeks, but for North Carolina, it's been uncharacteristic for sure.

I picked up this coat on a trip to NYC a year or so ago, and I'm thankful I have it on these incredibly chilly days. My blanket scarf is of course my favorite for the season, and I was able to snag the last pair of these gloves when we had a chilly bout of weather a little while back. It's going to be a chilly few days, and I'm getting pretty ready for spring, but I will admit that a little winter weather is fun every once in awhile. P.S. my favorite Aldo booties are 50% off and they come in black!



  1. OMG girl! I'm glad you were able to work from home! Stay warm and safe!

  2. Stay warm girl and stay off the roads!!! Love the coat - white totally fits the backdrop!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  3. Such a perfect outfit. I always love a white coat with anything because it just looks so classic but it's my fave when paired with black pants. And of course the blanket scarf adds the perfect interest piece, too! Where are you in NC? I'm near Hickory and we got ice too. As a teacher though, I'm enjoying some impromptu days off! Stay warm!!

  4. We got snow this week too! The first one of the season. I got Monday off and loved it. Glad you were able to work from home and stay safe. This coat looks so cozy and perfect for the weather.

  5. Somehow you make a cold-weather outfit still look gorgeous! I have to admit, I'm kind of jealous of your snow/ice because Alabama is just getting threats of both but none of either (just some cold rain!)
