The mild onset of winter was nice while it lasted…but, much to my disappointment, the snow has finally arrived here in NY. One of the symptoms of my autoimmune disease is that my body can’t handle the extreme cold very well, so expect to see lots of cozy layered looks throughout the next few months! I used this opportunity to wear a few of my recent purchases that I scored during after-holiday sales (this coat, sweater & these gloves). Though I needed to double up on knitwear to keep warm, this outfit would work just as well with a vest underneath the coat (pull the collar out over the top to create contrast). Side note: I thought I had lost this hat last month while traveling, but I was so happy to discover that it had just mysteriously migrated to my daughter’s room!
