• Snow day: Taupe + greens

    hunter green and taupe winter outfit

    Sole Society scarf, J.Crew coat, faux pearl stud earrings (similar)
    Hunter tour boots (my review), leather gloves (similar for short fingers; review)
    J.Brand Maria jeans (sz 24 hemmed), Pasotti umbrella

    I woke up this morning, peeked out the window, then jumped up and down on the bed like a child on Christmas morning shouting “it’s a winter wonderland!!” to an irked and groggy Nick. Winter storms are not my cup of tea, except for the first few hours of a fresh snowfall when everything is white and picture-perfect. I wore this outfit for our morning wedding planning meeting to discuss riveting topics such as plates and tablecloths.

    I had been eying this scarf for a while, and finally pulled the trigger after realizing how functional an over-sized scarf is in my current commute (and then at my desk to alleviate mid-day chills). The biggest scarf in my collection was previously the ASOS plaid, which I typically “turtle” myself inside by wrapping it all around my head and neck. It’s hard to gauge the material of scarves online, but I was super happy with the quality of this particular one.

    The material is a 30% wool, 70% acrylic blend and is very soft against the skin. Weight is light but warm as you build up and wrap the layers. It’s a large rectangle instead of a square, which makes it a little easier to do the draped style I’m wearing here without too much excess volume piled at the chest (with a square, just fold it in half first to get the same look). It’s so wonderfully comfy, the day I got it in the mail I rolled myself up inside and promptly dozed off.

    The size of my scarf measures about 78″ x 40″ –  the website says 78″ x 22″ so I wonder if they folded it in half to measure, With this roomy rectangular shape, I’m looking forward to also trying a belted poncho sort of look with it next!

I finally found the brand and had a small heart attack since it is quite pricey!! Now I must protect it dearly in windstorms so it doesn’t suffer the sad “inverted” fate of most umbrellas in Boston.

      You are even in the winter so elegant! And I have never thought that the Hunters in green would match so perfect with grey <3 I think I have to add to my black Hunters also green Hunters ... Happy weekend!

      Really cute outfit. All the colors match perfectly. And you look really nice, too!
      Can I ask what pencil you are using here for your eyebrows?

    • prudence yeo January 25, 2015 at 6:09 am

      The stripe design of the umbrella is so cute! And love the flattering coat and chic scarf too!

      Lovely outfit, I like its monochromatic colours with the virantly white snow. I think that snow creates really nice background in photographs.

      I too made a winter outfit photoshoot but the snow was gone the day after :/. If you are interested in some winterwear, you could enjoy my article on the history of muff, which is a bit underestimated winter accessory.

      Jean, you look adorable. The green hunter boots are a great addition to your collection, and look great with this scarf and coat. Beautiful job!

      What a beautiful snow day in Boston! You look great! I am often to shy to carry an umbrella when it snow, but you make it look so chic Jean.

      Love the scarf! I'm having some trouble getting through with that link–it just takes me directly to the Sole Society site. Any chance you have a more direct link? Thank you!!

      I got a new job and just started taking the MARTA (rapid transit system) in Atlanta. Could you do a post on being chic while riding the train? I need guidance on purse, work bag, lunch bag, shoes, umbrellas, etc. I'm currently wearing flats and changing into heels once I get to work. I currently have 2 different bags. Help … please! Lol

      Love the sleek silhouette of the Lady Day Coat – I've had mine for years and I still get compliments whenever I wear it!

      If you read the blog, you'll see that she's covered most of these topics already. It's been very helpful to me to read the older posts.

    • fivesouth January 27, 2015 at 9:12 am

      The wellies are adorable– what recommendations do you have for socks/linings to be able to wear these in snow and stay warm? I love your umbrella too, but with the rate at which I lose my umbrellas I'd have mad paranoia just carrying that one around!!! – j
