Hey luvies,

So we didn't get as much snow as anticipated, which is a-ok with me! I'd say we got about a foot, not the 3-4 feet that was predicted. However, it still was a lot and has made finding parking such a pain, ugh! 

Anyway, I wanted to of course wear something warm, since it was somewhere around 28 degrees today, yup VERY cold! I opted for these super comfy and warm leather pants I purchased at H&M about a month ago in store. They're lined with a suede like material, which makes me super happy on days like today, because when I'm in the mood for wearing some leather pants or leggings, I don't have to worry about freezing my butt off! I paired them with a grey cable knit sweater, one of my faves in my closet. It's also comfy, but not really all that warm, so I had to wear a long sleeve underneath, which did the trick. I added a plaid chunky scarf that has pops of pink. To finish off the entire look, I selected one of my favorite coats, this cranberry oversized wrap coat by Vince Camuto. You've definitely seen this coat on the blog, but with the fur collar, which I removed; I felt it would be too overwhelming to have that and the chunky scarf. To enhance the cranberry, I wore my Louis Vuitton Alma GM purse.

I hope you enjoyed the post and feel inspired to recreate it on yourself! It's one that I feel would look great on every body shape because the proportions are perfect and flattering all around and has a nice mix of texture, which is essential during the winter and in balancing out or creating curves during this time of year. The fact that the pants and boots are the same color and texture, creates a lengthening effect to the leg, which is great if you're petite and are thinking of wearing an oversized coat. Oversized coats can appear a tad overwhelming to a petite frame, unless there are some techniques used in styling to create a longer leg, something you may want to consider if you are petite. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
