I’m lucky in that I’m able to walk to work, however that means most days (especially during the winter) I’m carrying a change of shoes in my bag. As much as I’m a slave to fashion I’m even more of a realist and platforms just aren’t practical, especially in Burlington. Besides I love these heels way too much to subject them to the salt, muck, and grey snow matter that’s currently covering the sidewalks. I leave that to my trusty Old Navy boots, the more wear and tear they endure the better they look.

Does your commute affect your wardrobe? Are you fashion focused or rooted in reality?

I’m used to taking self portraits with my tripod, when no on else is watching, so it took me a few minutes to relax with someone new behind the lens. Luckily Jonathan has a great sense of humor and was quick to set me at ease with encouragement and plenty of coaching. By the end I was trying to nail down another time to shoot together.

who takes your outfit photos? are you camera shy or always close-up ready?

As I was editing these photos D leaned over my shoulder and dropped this little jewel, “I like this one, you look like the Brady Bunch mom,” I paused. I had being going for a 70’s vibe but not a Carol Brady 70’s vibe; D seeing my furrowed brow quickly interjected, “that was a compliment, the Brady mom was hot for her time!”

Carol Brady resembelences aside this vintage wool skirt from Downtown Threads was handmade and I love it paired with this old Gap sweater. I played up blue and brown notes with my accessories to help keep this look from feeling dated. These Cole Haan booties are the answer for anyone who thinks heels are uncomfortable. Their Nike Air Soles make them unbelievably comfortable and they have a tread that’s practical but subtle.

What practical but pretty accessories do you love? Have you been channeling any vintage styles or celebrity moms lately?

First off,  Mom if you’re reading this I swear my coat wasn’t off for more than a few minutes; don’t worry. I love you and I’ll call soon!

I took these photos on Monday when it was a bit warmer, aka it was in the low 20’s and it’s scary how warm that felt. This is my “go-to” cold weather outfit, chunky knit sweater, jeans, and boots. It’s as versatile as it is simple and makes layering easy, case and point I had three layers under this sweater. I wanted to evoke a bit of warmth, albeit imagined, with my accessories so I added colorful boots and a mulitstrand necklace.

what are your winter weather dressing secrets?

oh, hi

Oh hi guy leaning on the hood of your car three parking spaces away. Your tractor beam like stares really made these photos look and feel so natural. I’m not the least bit uncomfortable. I am however kicking myself over the ten extra minutes I spent futzing with my camera in the hopes that you would leave. Not only did you stick around (in fact you were still there when I left) but my camera battery died after these two photos.

All snark aside, I love this look. My mom’s teal blouse and the leopard booties I bought myself for Christmas provide the perfect pops of color and effectively snapped me and my wardrobe out of the winter blahs.

How are you injecting color into your winter wear?
