It’s officially the first day of winter, so I thought it would be perfect to kick off the season with this pom beanie and blanket scarf look! My husband wanted me to remind you that this is the shortest day of the year, which is a bummer. It’s going to get dark so early, BUT from here on out the days will be getting longer again! So hello winter solstice, I’m ready for you!
Sheldon always gets so happy on the first day of winter, because the shortest day is over and we’re slowly heading back toward summer! I love winter, but I’m also ready for a little bit more sunshine. It literally feels like midnight when I get home from work, and it’s only six o’clock.
I’m also so ready for more winter looks! It has actually started to get a bit chilly here in the Bay Area, so this outfit is perfect! It’s so cozy, and I love that it is super comfortable. I mean, we’ve got a thermal, a warm beanie, and toasty boots…what more could you want?
POM BEANIE & BLANKET SCARF
I bought this thermal last year, but it is still being sold everywhere and is the absolute BEST. It’s the Free People Laguna Thermal, and it is so worth it. I actually have it in three colors…it’s that good! It’s soft, perfectly distressed, and an easy layering piece for winter. It also has the coziest thumb holes to keep you extra toasty during the cold and dark winter months.
I’m wearing my Madewell High-Waisted Black Jeans because they are crazy-flattering and a necessary closet staple. That being said, this outfit would be perfect with a pair of leggings, too! I love the Zella Live In Leggings from Nordstrom. They tighten everything up and are never ever see-through. I wear a small in their leggings, for reference.
These pretty boots are from last year, but lucky for you I found a couple amazing dupes for them! There’s these gorgeous Vince Camuto over the knee boots (that are on sale for 33% off and also come in a flat version) and are the perfect winter shade. I also found these taupe over the knee boots from Target that are super cute and budget-friendly! If you’re looking for a richer color, there are these gorgeous stretchy OTK boots from Goodnight Macaroon and this pretty pair from Anthropologie.
Pastels are going to be big in 2018…so this baby blue scarf is perfect. It’s such a sweet accent to this outfit! I love the pastel blanket scarf, and I found a ton of similar options in the widget below! Speaking of pastels…this GORGEOUS blush leather tote is a perfect winter-to-spring essential!
And lastly — the pom beanie. How obsessed are you with these? Because I know I am! So cozy and cute, a pom beanie is the quintessential winter outfit. On today, the first day of winter, it’s about time you get one! I love this all white one, but one with a faux fur pom is super cute too!
