Salt City Winter Style

It’s FINALLY cold here in SLC.  I’ve not complained about the balmy temperatures, but there was something disconcerting about 50-degree December Days in our four-season city.

With the prolonged fall, I haven’t put much time or thought into my winter wardrobe. In years past, I’ve braved the cold and gone without a quality winter coat, boots, gloves, hats..  we Salt Lake City girls are a tough bunch. But now that the snow is here, I decided to be comfortable this winter — with it’s late start, I’m guessing it’s gonna be a long one.

Salt City Winter

First, I invested in a pair of snow boots. I wanted a pair that was both functional and stylish — an elusive combination. Luckily,  I found a black quilted nylon and brown suede pair from Timberland (just $50 at Marshalls!) These puppies are WARM and the brown-black color combo makes them very versatile — I’ve already worn them to the pilates studio, on a snowy winter walk and to a casual Friday at work. This Lululemon scarf, which can be worn as a cowl, hood, or wrap-around, is also my new best friend.

Also picked up this parka from Warehouse after seeing it in this post from Le Catch (my go-to blog for some outfit inspiration).  I’ve been looking for an army green parka with leather sleeves for a while — the layers and hood make this one perfect.

And what’s winter without a few cozy sweaters? I noticed my closet was severely lacking in all things warm, so I invested in these two ski sweaters — this mohair one from Mango and an Aztec-inspired one like the one pictured above from local boutique Koo De Ker.  I plan to wear both with some black ankle boots and some faux leather skinnies (I picked up these from H&M a while back)

So, I splurged a bit on winter clothes this year — a girl has gotta stay warm, right? How do you stay warm and stylish in cold weather? [J]
