Freezing for Fashion
Hi friends! Welcome back! Okay so the point of this blog post was supposed to be about me showing you guys how to style a trench coat in the winter and still stay warm. What I concluded from my research is this. Trench coats are not for the winter. No matter how many layers you have on underneath, you will be cold. Almost unbearably so. Luckily, I'm happy to take one for the team when it comes to fashion mistakes because that means you guys don't have to suffer the same fate as I did. You're welcome.
So here's the story. Jason and I decided to take a trip to one of our favorite little towns, Tarrytown, to shoot some photos and then go for a walk. My original outfit was a trench coat, hoodie, turtleneck, white jeans, & sneakers (ankles out and all). I'm not sure what made me think that, in 39 degrees, this would keep me warm, but I was so incredibly wrong. I didn't last 5 minutes before we had to go back in the car. I brought sweat pants and thick socks with me because I intended to change into them for our walk after we finished shooting. What happened instead is that I changed into them after the 5 minutes of attempted shooting and decided to shoot the walk outfit instead. To be honest, I didn't like how the original outfit turned out anyway and I'm always down for a comfy look so it all worked out. Was I still cold? Absolutely. Would I recommend wearing a trench during the winter? Only if you're not planning on being outside for very long. Otherwise, just stick to your wool coats and your puffers ladies. All outfit details are listed below. Until next time, tootles sugar plums! Xoxo.
