One evening before we headed back home for Thanksgiving, I was running around town trying to find a styrofoam cooler for our Blue Whistler Farm turkey’s five hour journey to Tennessee. I ended my search at Wal-Mart with a non-styrofoam cooler (apparently that’s not a thing anymore???) and on my way home I saw the cutest Christmas tree lot glowing with sparkly lights.*Cue the Christmas music* So the first thing on my photo agenda when we returned home was to do a shoot surrounded by the beautiful trees – nothing gets me in the Holiday mood quite like the scent of pine and fir. I wanted to wear red to contrast with the trees, so my H&M burgundy cape and my 100% Pure Lip Caramel in Red Velvet added the perfect amount of pop. One recurring winter wardrobe issue I always seem to have is resisting the urge to wear jeans every day so over the years, tights have become essential cold-weather accessories for me! It’s so nice to be able to work my favorite closet pieces into any-season staples. With the help of a good pair of tights, I can wear my spring skirts in the coldest of temps. Now if I could just find a way to wear my furry robe outside in the cold… ? What are your winter weather styling secrets?
