Boston, MA // Snow Day Style in Cream, Gray + Navy

Last weekend’s storm turned Boston into a real-life snow globe. Fresh powder always inspires me to pull out my winter whites, which I piled on here along with doubled-up tights and hidden thermal layers! I have a few cold-weather layering shirts from Uniqlo’s “heattech” line, and would recommend the affordable basic crew tee and turtleneck fleece tee.

I also wanted to mention my pom pom beanie is on sale with extra 60% off, and is still available in navy, burgundy, and gray! Mine has been on heavy rotation this winter – see how I styled it here and here, just to name a few. I’ve been especially loving the navy paired with my go-to navy tights, as anchoring neutral accessories for winter outfits.

Here in New England, “duck boots” can be found quacking at every corner whenever it precipitates. I have to admit I’m a fan of the style, although I’ve yet to try the original LL Bean ones! I thought these Sperry Saltwater boots were true to size and similar in weight & warmth to my Sorel ones (see those on me), so best for slush or light snow and not for heavy duty winter needs. They come in lots of color and material combos – here are a few others I like plus similar styles (how cute are those waterproof wedge booties?), starting at just $50:

    What are these hidden thermals you speak of? Would love tips on how to layer to stay warm in skirts.

    So pretty! Love the pastel colours of your outfit. I wish it snowed where I live now.

    Hello, I recently discovered your blog over the holidays, and I love your creativity and style! It has inspired me to ditch some of my slightly frumpy office wear, but I am running into a problem with skirts. I have a question regarding high waisted skirts: Where do you buy them? And will a high-waisted skirt solve the problem below?

    All of my skirts that sat at my hips would ride up indecently when I sat down. They would end up bagging around my natural waist. I have an hourglass shape, with an 11-inch difference between my hip and waist circumferences, so finding pants that fit is a challenge unless they are high-waisted.

    Also, I would hope that a high-waisted skirt would end an inch or two above the knee, as a skirt that hits at the knee can easily look dowdy, and hitting below the knee makes me look like a child wearing her mom's power suit! (I have a slight frame.)

    For reference, I am 5'4'', not exactly "petite" by most retailer sizing. But many of the rules of thumb for petites that you have mentioned on your blog also hold true for me.

    Thanks so much for your help!

    Yay Heattech! I live in those things (both tee and leggings) in winter. Has anyone tried the "Extra Warm" Heattech?

  • Amy Moore January 10, 2017 at 9:12 am

    Jean,

    Love the outfit but where did you get that awesome umbrella? Thanks!

    Such a great look, Jean! Do you have any recommendations for chic but heavy duty winter boots for us Bostonians?

  • Anonymous January 10, 2017 at 9:58 am

    Jean, what a wonderful post! It truly was a magical storm in Boston! Thanks for the heattech recommendations. Uniqlo is my source for affordable cashmere, but I didn't know about this line. Also, Bass boots – a Maine/New England staple – is having a great sale online for duck boots, well all shoes actually. They have great quality footwear and an "Outlet" section of the website that frequently has a great assortment of styles in smaller sizes! I just bought a pair of buffalo plaid duck boots with shiny black rubber bottoms this morning!

    Happy New Year!

    I have a pair of Heattech and Heattech Extra Warm leggings – the Extra Warm ones have a slightly brushed feel and are much warmer. I definitely recommend them!

    You look amazing! Is it me or does this year's version of the j crew Lady day coat looks longer and more like a fuller skirt?

  • affecionada January 10, 2017 at 6:50 pm

    The snow also inspires me to wear white! These photos really capture what New England was like on Saturday. x

    So glad that you mentioned Uniqlo. I love their heattech stuff. I have bought Uniqlo in Asia and have gotten size Medium in their tops with a nice petite fit on me. Just bought a shirt online here in the US a few months ago and was bummed that a size M on the same top I bought in Asia was huge and didn't fit right. We just got a store in my area so I'll have to learn more about US sizing. Hope you partner with Uniqlo in the future!

    Hi Jean. I just moved from California (Silicon Valley) in October to snowy Boise, Idaho. I love it here actually and especially love your cold-weather styling tips. I was hoping that you'd showcase some items from Uniqlo and you did in this post – so awesome! I ordered several cold weather items from them and have not been disappointed. I ordered their women's lightweight down hooded coat and really like how light it is, making it so easy to pack. I get so many compliments.

    Now, please recommend some gloves won't you? I've been wearing these pretty black leather gloves that you recommended awhile back, but I could use something warmer right about now. Love, Val

    I have never tried the cream color during winter, but it's a lovely combination. Thank You Jean
