This afternoon, my girlfriend and 2 of her 3 kids came over for a play date during the start of our latest snow/hail/freezing-rain storm. Over a cup of coffee, she asked me why I wasn’t attending the Style Week Providence like so many of my other blogger friends (Jen, Liza, & Audrey to name a few). I paused for a second and then looked down at my Tampa Bay Rays t-shirt and Gators yoga pants. Turns out, I’m not very fashionable or stylish. But I’m fine with that because you know what I like? Accessories. Especially in cold weather.
So when I’m loading up the minivan to haul the kids to swimming lessons, playgroups or story time, it is almost always while wearing yoga pants but I’d bet that I’ll be sporting some cute accessories. This year, my favorite go-to accessory for staying warm are a pair of Sorel boots I picked up at the Nordstrom Rack earlier this month. Warm, cute & functional- you can’t beat that! Another favorite is the tried & true blue shiny puffer coat that I bought at BJ’s a few years ago. It’s flattering and I get a ton of compliments on it, even though it only cost $40 from a warehouse club.
So while my winter fashion extends to yoga pants paired with cute boots, coats and hats outside of the house, inside the house we are usually cuddled up by the fireplace. If you’re under the age of 4 there’s a strong likelihood there will be no pants worn either.
See that BC throw blanket next to the fireplace? There’s a little cuddlebug under there in a long sleeved Gap shirt and Thomas underwear. No pants needed because we stay warm and toasty near the fire.
What are your favorite fashion tips for the winter?
Any advice on how I can get out of these yoga pants and wear some real clothes? Thanks!
