Winter Jackets You Need

Hey y’all and happy friday!

I cannot even express how excited I am for the weekend.. I have had the most insane days with work and I need some time off! Last weekend I was moving, so being settled in is such an amazing feeling. And today.. I’m talking about some winter jackets you NEED!

If you’re anything like me, you’re probably super un-prepared for the cold weather. Especially as a Texan moving to DC, I need some legitimate winter coats. My personal favorite is the moto jacket I’m featuring in this post, but I’m linking all of my favorites in the sliders below. Happy shopping and stay warm!

1. The Moto Jacket

In my personal opinion – if you have one jacket in your wardrobe, it should be this. You can easily dress it up with a mini skirt or a fun sequin top, or dress it down with ripped jeans and a white tee. I’ve seen these in leather, suede, cotton, and they’re all so versatile.

2. The Peacoat

This is my pick for a nice night out or for the bitter cold. These generally are thicker materials and have cute button details that add something extra to an outfit.

 

 

3. The Trench

I absolutely love a good trenchcoat! These are making a huge comeback and I opt for a trench for a night out or with a dressier outfit. These are also great as work-wear if you’re in a business casual environment.

4. A Good Fleece

You can’t ever have enough fleece jackets! I love a good quarter zip fleece, and Target always has really great affordable options for these. They’re generally less expensive (unless you go with North Face, etc – which are great), and are great for everyday casual use.

What are you favorite winter jackets? Let me know in the comments!

Empire State of Mind

Hey y’all!

So in case you don’t follow me on Snapchat (which you should – trendkeeper), I went to New York City a couple weekends ago! We went with another couple we’re friends with and I had such a great time. NYC is one of my all time favorite cities and I enjoy it every single time I go. So get ready for some Empire State of Mind posts hahaa.. in this case, an OOTD taken in the financial district!

Personally, I prefer that area of NYC compared to busier areas like Times Square or 5th. It’s busy enough to be inspiring but still calm enough to be a little quaint. Unfortunately it was FREEZING outside – hellooo Winter in the northeast! And it’s only gotten worse from there.. but that’s for another post. So I wore my comfy Lazy sweater with my new favorite puffer vest while we went sightseeing around this part of town and up One World Trade Center. Which by the way is a must-do if you’re ever in the city.

My over the knee boots lasted me most of the day before they started hurting – but I love them so much, I couldn’t resist wearing them!

As always, shop my look and similar items in the slider below! They’re all super affordable products and I found exact links to pretty much everything. Except my camera bag.. since it just came with my camera!

Puffer Vest

Hey y’all! Hope you’re having an amazing day and welcome back.. 🙂 In case you missed it, be sure to enter my giveaway HERE!

Lately the weather has been super winter-ish and I finally got my first puffer vest – so I think this calls for a celebration. This vest was only $10 on sale for black friday and the color is seriously my all time favorite color. It’s a super bright blue and I loved mixing it with a white sweater and the most comfortable leggings. I basically live in leggings all Winter long every year!
