What to Wear When You’d Rather Hibernate

black faux fur hat camel wool coat

One part Russian-chic, one part it-was-too-friggen-cold-to-even-see-straight-this-past-weekend. A faux furry hat was necessary!

Notice the seemingly empty Washington Square Park behind me? You guys, this was a WEEKEND. It was *that* cold outside. New York was apparently in hibernation mode. (If you’re not from around here, this park is normally pretty packed on Saturdays and Sundays. Heck, even Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, too.)

In my current craving of simplicity, I’ve been wearing a whole lot of black and white. When I haven’t been wearing winter white, I’ve been wearing black and camel. I’ve been as boring as they come! But I just can’t help it… The combinations feels so clean, put-together, and polished. And so easy, too!

A camel-colored coat is a winter staple.. Everyone needs one! I have two camel coats that I’ve been rotating all winter long. (You can see how I last wore this one here and my other one here.)

Since I was proud of myself for even leaving my apartment last weekend, I kept my outfit pretty minimalistic. I stuck to all-black basics — (one of my many) J.Crew Tissue Turtlenecks, J Brand skinny jeans, and chunky black booties. I let my camel car coat and black (faux) fur hat do the statement making!

    Good to know that Landsend carries that coat in tall. When it’s too friggin cold, a peacoat won’t even cut it for me. I need my north face sleeping bag coat if its below 30 degrees, otherwise I will not be warm.

    This coat resembles one I’ve been eyeing from J. Crew! Looking classy 😉 We’re supposed to get up into the 50’s this weekend which is practically unheard of at this time for Kansas City. I can’t wait to get outside and actually enjoy being out there!

    Love this outfit! Especially that hat. It looks so nice and warm. Not going to lie, I have been basically hibernating in my apartment whenever it’s cold or gross out. Is spring here yet??
