Dressing for Winter

WINTER WHITES WITH TALBOTS

As much as I love a good, colorful holiday moment (exhibit A and exhibit B) – I also love a simple, ‘winter white’ cold weather look.

SHOP THE STORY:

I love how this ivory faux fur lined parka is neutral enough to go with everything but still really brightens up a dreary winter day (as opposed to my typical black parka that just plain depresses me by the time February rolls around). Perfect for taking a spin around the ice rink.

Speaking of ice skating – this Winter I’m determined to embrace the activities that can only be done in cold weather (instead of spending approximately 3 months wishing for 70 degrees to show up again). Even if that’s just cozying up inside and allowing more time to read, or finally watching a bunch of classic old movies I’ve never seen. Things I’d never do in summer. Winter is exactly the time! And if I do have to actually you know, leave the house, at least I’ll be bundled up in a cute coat.

Talbots Parka, Cashmere Sweater, Grey Ankle Jeans and Fair Isle Scarf c/o – all 40% off right now!

WINTER STYLE: RED PLAID COAT AND HIKING BOOTS

The Steele Maiden: Winter Style - Red Plaid Coat and Hiking Boots

Oh you know, just out here collecting firewood for our decorative fireplace.. ha. But really, I finally revealed the before/after of our Fireplace Makeover and am still kind of just staring at it in awe. Home is always what you make of it and a little bit of DIY magic can go a long way in my opinion.

HOLIDAY STYLE: RED BERET AND PLAID BLAZER

The Steele Maiden: Holiday Style - Red Beret, Plaid Blazer and White Midi Skirt

This outfit feels a little bit like if I was a 2018 version of Audrey Hepburn who split her time between Paris and the West Village. Which is basically my dream.

BEST OF: WINTER COATS

The Steele Maiden: Best of Winter Coats

Wait – where did Fall go? With last week’s unexpected snowstorm, winter feels like it is officially here. And that means you’re going to want to stock up on coats. Like, now. I almost always buy my winter coats for the season during Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales (50% off goes a long way on bigger ticket items!). So I thought I’d share my winter coat arsenal in case you want to plan to do the same.

SHERIDAN, WYOMING: MAXI DRESS AND SHEARLING COAT AT THE MINT BAR

The Steele Maiden: Sheridan, Wyoming - Mint Bar - Shearling Coat and Floral Maxi Skirt

Mint Bar, a watering hole for cowboys since 1907, is one of the landmark’s of downtown Sheridan, Wyoming. Stepping underneath the big, bucking neon sign and into the inviting, rustic interiors felt a little bit like stepping back in time. Into one of the saloons of the wild west, where beer and whiskey were plentiful and everyone knew your name. Needless to say, it was one of my favorite places that we visited while in town. And this outfit – with similar nods to cowboy culture was fittingly one of my favorites that I wore while we were on our trip.

SHOP THE STORY

It was (unsurprisingly based on the snow you see here) pretty cold while we were in town – so I did my best to strategically layer. For instance, under this maxi dress I was wearing my heat tech leggings, over the knee boots and then the thickest sweater I own over top and this seriously warm faux shearling coat. While I’m definitely ready for warmer weather – there is a certain amount of fun to be had in layering and playing with a mix of textures. Another fun thing? The huge stack of pancakes I had at P.O. News and Cafe down the street after we took these photos. A great local spot that has also been standing for over 100 years and hasn’t lost a lick of it’s charm. Can’t wait to share our full travel video and itinerary with you guys this week!
