My Winter Essentials with Sorel

January 10, 2017


It’s weeks like this one where I spend my time daydreaming about what life would be like living in California, with consistently perfect 70-degree temps year round. Instead, I’m here in the Northeast living life in my fleece onesie and telling you about my winter essentials. Is it the first day of Spring yet?

I will say that I love #sweaterweather but there comes a point where it’s just too cold to even care…which is how I’m feeling right about now.

This past weekend we saw our second snowfall of the season and ventured out Sunday morning to the beach. Funny thing is, we didn’t end up lasting more than the ten minutes we took to shoot this look because it was so. damn. cold.

winter essentials 3My Sorel’s are always the first things I throw on in this kind of weather. We actually have this running joke in our family about Sorel’s because not one family member (even through our extended family) doesn’t own a pair. It’s almost a rite of passage, so to speak. Can you guess what one of the first gifts my husband was welcomed into the family with? Yep. Sorels.

I own the Caribou style, a Sorel classic, which are great for heavy snow. However, when I’m looking for something a little less bulky, I throw on my Tivoli’s, which I’m wearing here. For those of you who don’t see snow or the winter, I also love Sorel rainboots and have had my eye on the Joan Wedge boot for quite a while now!

Can you tell it’s all about the boots here in the Northeast?

And yes, I love this leather saddle bag as much as you do! So many of you have asked about it after posting it on Instagram and it is just as amazing as in person as it looks here! It’s from the LC Lauren Conrad line and currently on major sale. The rose gold hardware pairs perfect with the cognac color (though it’s beautiful in its other shades, black and wine, too!) and the dual straps have been incredibly convenient.

      Haha yes! We kind of just fell into it because my dad has always loved them so much. Sometimes it’s hard to style big bulky boots but when it’s this cold, I just pile on alllll the layers.

  8. Haha, I can totally relate to wanting to live in Cali this time of the year, then again I really do enjoy living in a place which has all four seasons as there’s something I enjoy about them all, not a big fan of cold though, especially when doing photo shoots.
    You pulled it off really well though. 🙂

  9. So cute girl!! Def checking out that LC bag!! By the way you’re a brave soul for shooting in the freezing temps!
