For the past week or so, I’ve been stocking up on my winter fashion basics. In between buying belts at Target and boots at Steve Madden, I thought I’d share them with all of you!

1. Steve Madden “Lindley” boots


I’m currently wearing a Lindley lookalike, the Roady boots from last season, but the Lindley’s are close enough to recommend to all of you! They’re great for tucking jeans or wearing with a pencil skirt and pattern tights for a day on the job (or a night on the town).

2. Infinity scarves

I didn’t actually buy my infinity scarf; it was given to me by the church that I work at. Mine is grey with thick stripes and I love love love it! It’s perfect for keeping my neck warm in that fierce Oklahoma wind. I’d pick a substantially thick one over a long one, but both are warm and stylish. Go with earth tones so that you compliment the leaves on the ground.

3. North Face “Denali” jacket

I know, I know. You’re going to blend in with nearly everyone when you wear this jacket, but that’s just because everyone is smart. North Faces are warm, cozy, and great for throwing over any outfit while you trudge to class in the cold. They aren’t the cutest thing in the world, but you will be relatively warm and waterproof. And black goes with everything, right?!

4. Skinny belts, pencil skirts, patterned tights

I actually wore this combo out to dinner at Victoria’s on Campus Corner Friday night. Skirt from Gap + blue button down from Forever 21 + patterned tights from Target + skinny belt from Target + grey sweater from J. Crew = winter cuteness. Feel free to mix it up at your discretion.

What do you like to wear when (baby) it’s cold outside?
