What does a gal wear on Casual Friday when it's -31 with a windchill? A chunky knit and a leather down filled puffer coat!
Today's outfit started with this "faux turtleneck" chunky knit sweater in a soft cream colour. I can't stand turtlenecks on me - I always feel like I'm being choked. But this cowl-turtle hybrid is perfect for still keeping my neck warm while not being too tight.
Paired with the sweater, I chose my TR Cameron slim BF jeans and chose a snakeskin belt for the semi tuck. I love how this sweater is warm and thick but soft enough to drape.
For footwear I went with my beige wedge Toms - I have sprayed them several times with waterproof spray so they are fine to wear out in the snow. Plus the grip is surprisingly good.
To finish off the outfit, I am using my snakeskin handbag and am wearing my rose gold/black watch and gold wedding band.
When I head outdoors, everything will be topped with this cobalt leather down-filled puffer coat. I realize this coat is not traditionally flattering - it is seriously "puffy" but when you're going out at -31, I'm thinking more about keeping warm. I love the bright cheery colour, the gigantic collar, the two-way zipper and c'mon….it's LEATHER!
So what do you think? Good for a cold Casual Friday? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
