I love winter. And I live in Chicago. I love winter in Chicago. I love summer, too, with its breezy skirts and sandals. But come fall, I crave chunky moto boots and wool.
I’m happily swaddled in fall fashion (particularly outerwear) for months. I also love the city in the winter. It’s wrapped up like a pretty present for the holiday season, of course, but I also love hot yoga and lunch inside by the fire at one of a dozen cozy spots within walking distance while the snow falls outside in January.
Each year, my big splurge is often on a coat. I usually pick this item up in the days right after Christmas or in early January. I found this dreamy Altuzarra coat at Barneys in Chicago right after Christmas. It was seriously discounted by then and one of maybe a handful available anywhere (trust me, I searched and searched before pulling the trigger). I needed a long black coat for dressier occasions and I love the cozy fur collar and big mirrored buttons on this one. I’ve been a big fan of Altuzarra, for coats especially, for a long time and have been lucky scoring one on deep sale at the end of the year at Barneys more than once.
Other items (all purchased on sale with the exception of the skirt):
