Friday Favorites {Cold Weather Edition}

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

It’s been so cold in Boston lately, all I can think about is updating my winter gear to even warmer items. Taking Murphy out for his morning walk, for example, is an experience in itself. Neither of us are fans of the cold weather, so I’m usually dragging him around the neighborhood while I freeze my butt off. Obviously, it’s not fun for either of us. Pug must pee.

And I have to admit, it’s not really even cold here yet in Boston. It was 16 degrees F one morning earlier this week, but the temperature will definitely get down into the single digits before the winter is over, so I’m already thinking about what I want to add to my current cold-weather wardrobe. That said, here are some items on my wish list!

J.Crew Wintress Puffer

I love that this coat is puffy, but not too puffy, so you still have a little shape to your body and don’t look like a big blob when you’re wearing it. And it’s made with goosedown, so I’m sure it’s warm.

J.Crew Chevron Infinity Scarf

Yes, please! I love infinity scarfs so much more than regular scarfs and this one is chevron. Love it.

The North Face Aloona Dress

How cozy does this dress look? It’s perfect for a holiday party or casual get-together. I think I like it in gray the most, but it also comes in purple and blue. Tough decision.


Kohl’s Tek Gear Fleece Pants

Anyone else just love Kohl’s? How about these fleece pants? And they’re on sale for just $7.99 (and I’m sure you could find some sort of Kohl’s coupon to get even more off). Yup, I definitely need these. They also come in black, brown, and navy.


Dorothy Perkins Pug Face Beanie

Obviously, I need this. There’s also a matching scarf!


J.Crew Smartphone Wool Gloves

I love that these gloves work with smartphone and tablet screens! Now I can walk Murphy and ‘like’ photos on Instagram at the same time!


Isotoner Microsuede Moccasin with Faux Fur Slippers

Super cozy, colorful, and priced right. Sign me up!


Question of the Day

What’s on your cold weather wish list?



  1. I love the fact that you name checked Dorothy Perkins. I had no idea people had heard of it outside of the UK! You should definitely get some touch screen gloves. Like you I like to take my phone on walks and was getting sick of taking my gloves on and off. I recently got a new coat so I think I’m all stocked up for winter. I’d really love a pair of Uggs but they’re very expensive here so they’ll stay on the wish list for now.

  2. I live in Edmonton, Alberta, so a down coat is a must! I have most of the cold winter gear I need but would like to update my winter boots since my old ones are wearing out from last year. LOVE the pug beanie!

  3. Ooh I love that jacket and the dress! it has been so cold and snowy here I feel like I have been living in hoodies and hats! That and gym clothes! I love scarves this time of year and just can’t seem to get enough of them!

  4. It does not get that cold in Seattle, but we are going to Whistler, BC in December so I needed a new ski jacket. I had been looking at Burton’s and scored one at Marshalls for $80.

  5. My boyfriends mom bought me a long down coat from Eddie Bauer one year for Christmas and it is my favorite thing EVER. I save it for the really cold January temps and it makes dog walking so much more tolerable.

  6. I’ve had the same wool J Crew peacoat for years but I’d love a long one that would cover my legs… Also there are never enough warm socks and mittens! I really would have liked all of the above while I was in Boston for Thanksgiving! I ran around the Charles and Cambridge and then walked around Fresh Pond with family and that was all FREEZING (read windy).

  7. I’ve got that exact same j crew coat AND I live in Boston- it helped me survive last winter!! Hint: the Kittery outlets have it for about half price. Stay warm! ,y fingers are crossed for us to have a miles winter!!

  8. Awesome!! I just shared with my readers about a puffer coat similar to this. I love the fact they are warm, practical yet feminine. Great post!!

    Cold Weather? Get a Puffer Coat! New post in the blog.

  9. I love that coat.. I have a similar one in beige, but I wish they had more colors. I’m always wearing black so it would be so much black. The design is awesome though.. fitted and snug!
