Friday Find: When function and style walk down the street together

So, it’s been snowing for over 24 hours where I live.  I’m not sure if I’m going to leave my cozy workspace today.  If I do, I’d certainly need to keep warm and dry – especially on the tootsies. Our Friday Find this week, is all about when function and style meet. Check out these winter boots.

For the Gents LL Bean- 10″ Shearling Lined Why these are awesome These too are actual, real winter boots. You could dress them up with a wool coat or down with a down-filled sporty coat. They are $199 and are 10% off right now. There’s also a $10 off gift card you could take advantage of. Happy Friday!

Add a puffer coat

It’s getting pretty chilly outside. On those cold-but-not-so-cold days, I like to add a puffer coat under a ligher shell, blazer or sports coat.  This looks quite stylish and will keep you warm and toasty as you move about town. Yes- it works for everyone. Style Tip: Make sure the outer layer has some structure to it. This will help give you some shape so you don’t look like a snowman. Here are a couple of puffer coats that would compress well under any jacket or blazer. For the Ladies #1- Patagonia Nano Puff Jacket #2- Eddie Bauer Microtherm Storm Down Jacket For the Gents #1- The North Face Thermoball Hoodie #2- Ted Baker BADGLOK Quilted Jacket * On it’s own, this jacket has a lot of style. This is the first time I’ve put myself up on my blog.  What do you think? Stay warm.

Add a plaid scarf: A classic

The thermometer has started to dip. Far too low, I might add. Staying warm while being stylish is always a challenge. I suggest adding a big scarf as one of your go-to accessories during winter.  Today, I want to show you that classic plaid print. It’ll never go out of style and, with the right care, it should last you at least a few seasons. Here’s a classic style that I’m really loving these days. For the ladies ASOS Oversized Square Scarf in Check For the gents J. Crew- Cashmere Scarf in Plaid Now go bundle up. It’s getting cold outside.
