I normally hate cold weather, so it’s really weird that I’m secretly wishing I could slosh around in SNOW in my black Hunter boots rather than just the yuck rain. It seems like I’m doing them such an injustice you know what I mean? Either way, it’s cold, so I’m still wearing them. Because Hunter boots look oh-so-adorable when paired with a buffalo check scarf, and I’ve accumulated more buffalo check than I care to admit this fall season. Idk I’m sort of loving the ultra cool lumberjack movement that’s going on in J.Crew or something. ANYWAY, here’s some photos from how I wore my boots and my checks with a bright red MZ Wallace Metro tote and a surprising pop of purple!

I have always, always wanted a puffer coat, so it’s actually super surprising that today’s post features my very first puffer coat EVER! Sure, I’ve got puffer vests galore… but not the coat. Until now. This is the super soft and sink-inside-into-a-marshmallow-state faux fur puffer coat by Bernardo Outerwear. If I wanted to, I could put on this coat, lay on my hardwood floor and be able to sleep through the night on the ground. I’m almost sure of it. That’s how puff this coat is. It’s like a sleeping bag for your body that somehow still looks really cute. It defies all odds of outerwear.
AND, I got this guy for some wintery travels that are coming up around the holidays. Like this coat won’t just keep me warm on Louisiana’s coldest days, but it also might actually see snow. Which is really exciting for me. I’m currently planning potential snowwear for the end of this month. But for now, I will be dramatic on 40 degree weather days and wear my puffer coat all over Baton Rouge. : /

Okay, I promise you this is the last you’ll be seeing of snow posts – from here on out, it’s spring all the way. Here’s to thinking positively as I sip hot chocolate and am covered with a blanket, right?
This is what I wore on my very last day in NYC which was perhaps the coldest since it had snowed ALL night long. Yes, I was freaking out. Fresh snow equals safe walking shoes, so my Hunter boots came to my rescue yet again. I also wore my thick faux leather pants (thick socks even though you can’t see them) and this amazing coat from my Warehouse/Oasis showroom visit. My infinity plaid scarf, gloves and fur hat (obsessed) were all fabulous Christmas gifts which were put into immediate good use.
Maybe once or twice a year would I have to wear all of these things at once in Louisiana. I might normally pick one or two at a time, but I’m so glad that I packed all of them for this trip.

Because not all of NYFW is walking around in fabulous heels and embarking on glamorous jaunts around the city. I mean let’s be real here, it was freaking 20 degrees and snowing while I was in NYC. For a southern girl, that’s almost unbearable coldness. So, when I saw people literally walking around with open toe shoes, crop tops or really any large amount of leg skin showing, I wanted to yell out ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME. But I get it. It’s fashion week and people want to take fashionable photos outside of the Lincoln Center by streetstyle photogs. But inside, I was really thinking they’d catch some slight case of pneumonia…
My Hunter boots were hands down the most valuable (and safest) set of shoes that I brought with me. People were literally sliding all over the place in their heels and wedges (me included at couple of times), so these definitely came in handy for my down periods of time. I have to admit that before I bought them, I couldn’t justify spending that amount on rain boots, but here we are years later, and I don’t know what I’d do without them some days. Plus, they’re a classic.
