We have our first snowboarding trip of the season coming up next week, and to say I’m excited is a bit of an understatement. Blake and I have been taking snowboarding trips every winter since our first month of dating. In fact, on the night we met, we discovered our mutual love of the sport and realized that we both intended to hit the slopes in New Mexico later that month, and decided to coordinate our plans and make the long drive up together with a few other friends. We kept those plans and solidified our serious liking of each other, and have made it a point to plan a trip (or two) to the mountains every year since then; it will always be one of our first passions that we shared!
As such, I’ve had my mind on all things snowy and was inspired to put together this monochrome winter look. I found this white coat on clearance at Zara last summer and was immediately drawn to its classy collarless style (and its half-off price tag since it was out of season!) This was the first winter that I made more of an effort to diversify my coat wardrobe. In the past I usually wore one or two jackets throughout the season, but let’s face it — when you’re wearing a great outfit and have to cover it up with a boring coat or one that doesn’t match the style, it kind of ruins the outfit underneath, amirite?
This sweater was another clearance find at Gap, and the jeans from Hollister for $25 during black Friday. One of my tried and true shopping habits is to check the sale section first (thanks mom!). I can almost always find a few great items that I wear over and over, and it helps me not have to worry about paying too much for something if it doesn’t get a lot of traffic in my closet.
I can’t wait to share pictures of our snowy destination next week! Anyone else into any sort of winter sports?
