Outfit: Cold Weather Cute

Need ideas for cold weather attire? We have a few suggestions that will keep you both warm and stylish at the same time. We have spent the last two weeks bundling up in Eastern Oregon and Northern Idaho, the weather is sure different than Portland. Maddie misses the forty degree weather and rain in Portland. Ellie can't quiet believe this! While on vacation we learned to layer, and layer and layer. Here are some of our favorite layering looks.

Because Maddie refused to take off her long underwear the entire ski vacation... she decided to incorporate them into her outfit. Honestly, throwing a big sweater, boots, and a scarf on over leggings or jeans is the easiest way to look both fashionable and dressed for the winter weather outside.

Sweater: Free People
Scarf: Nordstroms (Similar)
Leggings: Mod Cloth
Boots: Nordstroms (Similar)
Purse: National Geographic Store

Ellie, who always finds a way to wear a skirt or dress, learned the art of tights and socks and boots. She is still moderately warm, although she did have to take off her down coat for the photos.  SmartWool socks are the save all and thick leather boots sure help!

Dress: Shop Bop (Similar)
Tights: Spanx (Similar)
Socks: SmartWool (Smiliar)
Boots: Frye
Belt: J Crew (Similar)
Bangles: JCrew
Cowl: Homemade

How do you stay warm in cold weather? We obviously still need more tips!

  1. Functionally, I love Smart Wool long underwear! Stylishly, though, what about a cute vest and a flannel? Maybe that's the eastern Oregon girl in me...
