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:

    Just the undershirts and double tights here. Have you tried fleece lined tights for wearing with skirts? Lots of brands make them and they can be very warm, sometimes too warm after you get indoors so you might need to take them off for the day. I like a little sheerness though with these navy tights, so just double them up.

    Hi there – Thanks for your kind comment! I can't say I've experienced your problem, but that might be because I only wear high-waisted skirts. I buy my skirts everywhere (many are from Ann Taylor) but I almost always tailor them to fit me better at the waist. I know alterations can be a pain, but especially with your more unique hip to waist ratio, tailoring might be the best solution for finding something that fits perfectly at both the waist and hips.

    I've been reading a lot of reviews and it seems like North Face makes some good ones… I've been eying the Adirondack I or II. The taller Sorel boots (like their Joan of Arc) are also considered by most to be heavy duty winter shoes!

    Hi Gwen, it's lovely to hear from you as always! I've seen Bass around but haven't tried them before. Buffalo plaid duck boots sound amazing!

    Hi Sarah! Hmm, it might appear that way in stock photos but mine is almost exactly the same in cut like the previous years' …

    It's crazy how different sizing is in different markets, even for the same brands! I'll definitely have to browse there next time I'm in Asia : )

    Hi Val, congrats on the big move! So nice to hear from you. I love their lightweight down pieces as well. And ah, gloves for short fingers are the bane of my existence right now! I haven't had any luck yet for newer styles this year, but of course will keep my eyes peeled : )

    Hi! I had my tailor take the waist in so that it sits higher up on my waist.
