Winter Wonderland


Another snowstorm hits the Midwest today. As much as I hate driving in the snow, I couldn't resist taking pictures of the freshly falling snow today. It’s just so beautiful and magical. This J.Crew double-cloth slim trench has to be my absolute favorite purchase this year. It's blistering cold out but this jacket keeps me toasty. Although it may seem like I am not dressed properly for cold weather.

  What I am wearing:
Jacket: J.Crew double-cloth slim trench - size 00R
Tee: Forever 21 striped peplum tee - size S
Jeans: Forever 21 classic denim skinny jeans - size 25
Scarf: Express infinity leopard scarf
Gloves: J.Crew cashmere-lined leather gloves
Watch: Movado Serio
Boots: Banana Republic (buy this year's version)
Sunglasses: Selima for J.Crew (buy similar)
Belt: H&M (buy similar)


   

I was going to do a review on this jacket but got lazy. It's still on major sale right now. Although, small sizes might not be available anymore. The fit of this jacket is pretty much the same throughout compare to the J.Crew double-cloth lady day (wore here). The body length is the only major difference between the 2 jackets. The slim trench is about 2 inches shorter than the lady day (which is a plus for a shorty like myself). If you need more details about these J.Crew jackets, check out Elle’s thorough review.


I am wearing my new tee from Forever 21 here. I haven’t purchased anything from them for the longest time but am happy with the quality of this specific piece. I don't find the knit fabric flimsy at all. The long sleeve stripe top is a classic piece that can be worn in so many different ways. Peplum is a great way to add a fun twist to any outfit. Happy Friday, everyone! Hope you all enjoy your weekend!

LOVE the coat! I see that you went with 00R. Did petites not fit well? I always wonder about the petite sizing versus regular.

Love the peplum on you!

@bella Yes, I went with the 00R (as expected). I could fit in a 00P as well but the sleeves would have been far too short on me.

Ohmygosh, you're so brave Sydney. The pictures turned out beautifully! So worth a few minutes in the cold :) What's your secret to keeping your camera dry?

Sydney's Fashion Diary said...

@Cee Hi Cee! The camera was actually underneath a covered porch.

I love the fact that you are dressing appropriately for the weather. I see many blog OOTDs of people who act like it's not cold out there. Please keep these type of posts coming :). I really look forward to see how people dress when it's not always warm and sunny.

Snow made a beautiful back drop here. You look so cool standing out in all white. I need to mix stripes with leopards too. Obviously, they made an excellent combo.
Good outfit, Sydney!
