My Perfect Winter Outfit…

I’ve been living in this Michael Kors burgundy coat, I really wanted something that was different to the standard black color of so many coats, but still worked with darker winter colors – and this has been perfect! It’s 100% wool too, which was brilliant for the freezing New York temperatures recently. Plus, it was on sale (major sale!)… I always buy really great coats at the end of each season – the prices right now are fantastic!

Oh and this grey cashmere sweater from Subtle Luxury is my absolute favorite, I love the stylish but relaxed feel it brings to outfits. This sweater has been a brilliant piece to wear when traveling too, it’s light and comfy but so perfectly warm when I need it (…like when I did a night tour of Alcatraz and didn’t bring my coat (because it was warm earlier in the day and I got cocky about the weather), thank goodness for this sweater!).

Finally, my other high-rotation piece lately has been these tall Kenneth Cole leather boots! I adore their gorgeous gold detailing and after wearing them all day, almost every day for a month (the ultimate comfort test!), I can say they are officially the most incredible boots! Of course, the usuals are still in there… you’ve all seen my very much loved Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag, J.Brand skinny jeans and Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses.  Tell me – what have you been living in lately?

Meet Our Head Stylists…

I’ve been looking forward to introducing you to today’s Head Stylists, Cate and Tammy from Wild Ruffle. These ladies are quite the duo! I hope you adore their blog as much as I do…

STYLE Q&A WITH CATE AND TAMMY…

What is your go-to look?  Cate: My go-to look changes quite a bit, depending on the season here in Minnesota. In the summertime, I’m all about a sundress with a bootie. In the winter, I’m all about the layers – and I’m rarely without a scarf or two.  Tammy:  Layers, for sure.  Definitely, scarves.  I’m usually cold so I need lots of creative warmth.  It’s fun for me to mix the unexpected; patterns, textures, color palates etc.  As far as a go-to-look… I love the ease of a casual cool dress with boots.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  Cate: I am all about the leather trend, whether it’s a full commitment (like leather pants), or just a hint (like leather accessories or patches).  Tammy:  As seen on Wild Ruffle, I’m all about animal tops.  Love them.  Dressed up or dressed down, they are just plain fun.  And again, I pray that scarves NEVER go out of style because I will probably always try to fit them into my ensemble in some way.

What inspired you to start your blog?  Cate: I was inspired to start the blog because, as a stay home mom, I was looking for a creative outlet and a way to share my passions with others while being at home with my three kiddos. Along the way, it’s evolved into so much more than I ever imagined it could be and I’ve met some amazing online friends – such great perks!  Tammy:   Cate started this fabulous blog and asked me to join forces with her.  I said, “Ummm, YES!!!”. I feel truly blessed to be doing what I love so much.  {dork-statement alert…  God knows I was born to do this!!}

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without:  Cate: My DIY coconut oil/baking soda scrub (I use it every night!), MAC Lipstick (my favorite is Fresh Moroccan) and They’re Real by Benefit Mascara (I’ve tried them all and it’s the best I’ve found!).  Tammy:  Cetaphil has been a constant ever since my Middle School days, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum (I switch it up sometimes, but always end up going back to this at some point) and Revlon Colorstay Lip Stain.

How would you describe your style?  Cate: I’d say the phrase that best describes my style is casual glam. I like a tall shoe and lots of accessories. I prefer skirts and dresses to pants (though that’s a bit tricky in the cold Minnesota winters). But whatever I wear, it’s got to work for being on mom duty, since I’m a mom to three.  Tammy:  Casual cool; mixing fashion trends with classics.  A style that lets me enjoy the artistic aspect of dressing yet it has to be easy enough to run errands, volunteer at school and sit on the floor to do a puzzle with my 4 year old.

  21. Ahh – THANKYOU, Lauren, for putting together a realistic winter ensemble. A lot of bloggers seem to have no clue what dressing for a *real* winter looks like. We are still in the depths of winter here in the Toronto area – it’s still all about the jackets and boots! You look lovely :)
