Although we're thinking about getting gifted around the Kitten Lounge Loft (Happy Christmas Eve to everyone and those celebrating other winter holidays, enjoy them without a doubt), I have to say that my mind around this time of year goes to the beginning fashion tradeshows that kick off my fashion calendar as well as such events as Sundance Film Festival. It's going to be an amazing 2012 of travel and although some of us will have to deal with pesky outerwear, there is no reason to reduce how cute we can look as snowbunnies (regardless of how mild the weather may appear to be in NYC or other locales). First off, I am obsessed with a new outerwear find to me, Hawke & Co. courtesy of TJ Maxx. This season, I will enjoy wearing a number of my tapered coats and capes; however, with images of people skiing last winter on Park Ave, I knew I needed a coat that was puffy, long, had a hood and would be super warm! This definitely fit the bill! Last winter I received these exact Sorel boots known as Cate the Great which are an awesome grey which works well with my grey coat (which also comes in black and brown). These boots are perfect when it is snowing, when you're walking through slush and I love the furry detailing and the fact that they come up high.
Although I want to be warm, I know that it is essential that I'm still cute as I will be heading to the airport for warmer climates, running around the city and more and you can't skimp on the cute factor. Pair this look with Hotel Particulier's Fox Fur hat which is so cute and cozy. Ralph Lauren keeps your hands warm and accessible to grab your phone with these fingerless gloves that have fab cable detail on the outside. Of course, exposed fingers allow for fabulous cocktail rings to grace your finger - including this one by JLRicci which is made of smoky quartz. Finally, it's always about the bag and I'm loving Furla's shearling camel hobo bag which is easy and yet makes a fab statement no matter where you are off too!
