Winter Days: Beat the Cold with Style


Knit sweaters and fitted blazers are making a big comeback this season, adding comfort and warmth to winter fashion. Fitted blazers are among the season’s essentials, as well as oversized knitstrends you simply must try this season!


“He who marvels at the beauty of the world in summer will find equal cause for wonder and admiration in winter”. – John Burroughs


Whether worn with a button-front shirt for the office or a cozy knit sweater for the weekend, the blazer has endless potential. And given the frigid temperatures, it’s a layering piece that I can easily get behind. A fitted blazer makes distressed jeans look much less casual as well, wouldn’t you agree?! I wore this look out on the weekend while furnite shopping with my boys. To keep things even comfier I decided to wear my winter boots from Kamik. These days I’m all about comfort without having to sacrifice style.

So, I say…

Beat the winter cold in comfort, warmth, and style!

    I always find beauty in winter, dear V., I love winter and loved the quote! Your blazer is really beautiful, the boots too and you look gorgeous, as usual! The feeling of the warmth of the sun, when it’s winter, is described by a word that is obsolete in English, but it’s nice to have a word for it: apricity 🙂 I wish you a beautiful day, dear V.! Hugs!

    These photos are beautiful– I especially love that chainlink fence shot. I remember back in 2012 when blazers were really in style. I got extremely blazer crazy back then. I don’t know if I’ve recovered yet from that trend, but it looks amazing with your burnt orange sweater!
