Mid-winter pick-me-up

Reality check, it’s Mid-January. Almost tax time, not quite Valentine’s Day, no snow, but you still need to keep warm. Although the weather is as fickle as the stock market these days, it is always better to be prepared. On a dreary grey day like this, all I really want to do is crawl into bed and watch movies. But fashion never hibernates. So…I’ll do my best to brighten your day (and mine) and wear a hint of pink. Pink is one of those colors that a certain kind of city girl, often seen in all-black Rick Owens, wouldn’t be caught dead in. That would include me. The Spring 2012 runways just may change my mind and your mind alike with designers like Jason Wu, Peter Som, and Jenni Kayne using pink in the most modern ways possible.

I’m not really a huge fan of functional dressing but it’s on days like these that demand that I stay on my feet, run around town and try to keep warm when common sense gets the better of me. So for those mid-winter days when open-toe stilettos threaten to make a foot frostbitten, I encourage you to take a look at the photos below for cozy alternatives that can be worn at Sundance or strolling around town.

As you can see, there are a chock full of bundled-up looks from this year’s Sundance Film Festival in Utah. I love spotting my favorite A-listers in luxe layered-up ensembles, shiny puffer coats, chunky colorful scarves, sleek booties, and more.

If Kate Bosworth, Naomi Watts, and Elizabeth Olsen’s cold weather chicness isn’t enough of an indication of how to dress in icier climates, look into your closet. That usually inspires my glam winter style.

By the way, check out my new Artemis Sheepskin boots. Handmade in New Zealand, they are comfy, cozy, and furry. Remember the Ugg vaccine post? These are no Uggs.

And if you are as inspired as I am, you can get most if not all of these wintry items on sale. If you find you are in the market for some no frills footwear, jump right over here for those sheepskin boots you know you have your eye on. They are as comfy as they look. Really.  For now! xo
