I don’t know about you, but I can’t STAND the cold. And becoming a mom has only multiplied my bitterness towards frosty weather. Who wants to chase children around in freezing cold weather (especially when it’s almost as though they never even feel it)? Not me.
However, I have come to appreciate the diversity in the seasons where we live, and with that diversity, comes some cold weather. What are you gonna do?
I’ve come to find that making the most of it and being prepared can really make all the difference. Seriously, what a difference a good coat can make!
I’m absolutely floored by the selection Nordstrom has to offer. If I had the chance to pick and choose my favorite brands and put them all in one store, Nordstrom would have beat me to it.
The other day, I was so excited to go sweater and coat shopping with Josh that I decided to make a cold-weather gift guide for you all of some of my favorite things that I tried on! Check them out below.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t leave with this BP. Crop Puffer Jacket, but I wish I did. I loved the fit and color so much. This is exacly why I love taking photos of what I try on so I can remember to go back to the favorites that I may have left behind 😉 Definitely going to snag this one over Black Friday.
I love the functionality and cut of this Halogen PuffeFkenner Jacket! So much warmth without feeling like I have tons of layers on. I think what I love best about this jacket is how it transitions from athletic wear to everyday wear!
These coats are both from my one of my favorite brands- that’s right- J. Crew. Of course, each of these jackets themselves are very different. The first (green) is called the J.Crew Wintress Belted Down Puffer Coat. I love the belt that I can tie around my waist as if to say, “Not today, Cold!” as well as the hood for the notoriously wet Washington winters! Also, the color is so pretty!
The second coat, the J.Crew Yuna Teddy Faux Fur Jacket, is perfect for layering up while still keeping it classy and pretty. I love to imagine myself wearing this Sunday morning and then again on date night!
This Kenneth Cole New York Wool Blend Boucle Coat is another on the dressier side but can still be worn with an everyday pair of jeans and boots. I absolutely loved the color of this! Having other pieces in this color, I’ve learned that even though it’s a peachy pink, it’s actually super versatile and goes with so much!!
This coat is actually temporarily sold out. So check back for a restock! But in the meantime, here are some similar jackets:
I’ll be honest, I’ve never owned a denim jacket that I really liked. This one, I love. I love the cut and the fact that it doesn’t feel super stiff when I wear it. I love how it pairs so well with so many things in my closet. And love that it’s a Levis because if there’s anyone I trust when it comes to denim, it’s them. This jacket is called the Levi’s Ex-Boyfriend Denim Trucker Jacket.
I’m also wearing this with a Madewell Flannel Courier Shirt, Madewell 9-Inch Button High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans, and the Madewell The Charley Bootie Do you think I like Madewell?? It’s more or less of an obsession.
We also ended up doing a sweater try-on and these were some of our combined favorites:
Don’t forget those toes!
I actually just ordered these Sperry Saltwater Rain Boot in Oyster and I am so excited for them to come in!!
As seen above, I’ve owned the Madewell Charlie Boot for a couple months now and they are amazing. They go with just about everything and I really feel like they bring every outfit up a level, if that makes sense. They’re just so cute and go perfectly with my style!
You’ll see me wearing these Jeffrey Campbell Cloudy Waterproof Chelsea Rain Boots in the very last photo below. I love how these are rain boots but they don’t really look like rain boots, ya know?? I also love the platform heel on these!
Lastly, how cute are these?!! Everyone needs a dressy boot for winter and these would be perfect for those cold night dates! I love every color these UGG Jeovana Waterproof Genuine Shearling Lined Boots come in!
