Minty Fresh

I’m not going to lie, sometimes it’s hard to find the motivation to walk the dog when it’s way below freezing outside. Not to mention the fact that Clarabelle has developed a real distain for walking on snow. Luckily, sometimes a handful of successive (relatively) warm days allows for a somewhat pleasant stroll down the banks of a partially frozen river.

Here are my cold-weather dog walking essentials: waterproof boots, chic leather gloves, a cozy coat and a big ol’ blanket scarf. I scored this fuzzy wool-bend jacket for about $25 in an epic after-Christmas sale, and I love how it provides the perfect pastel canvas for this amazing windowpane scarf (which I’ve been wearing with pretty much everything). Technically, Clarabelle has some winter walking gear of her own—think shearling trimmed dog vests—but Max won’t let her out of the house with it on. Yet.

As I type this, it’s 12 degrees outside and I’m curled up on my couch with a warm blanket and a cuddly dog. I’ve decided that my plan for staying warm this winter is layering, layering, layering, so I’m hoarding blanket scarves like a squirrel hoards acorns. So far, I have a pretty decent collection of cozy Zara selections, and I’ve got a few more on my Christmas list.

But with all this layering, one begins to feel a bit like a marshmallow, so it’s nice to add a few sparkly pieces on top. I’m so in love with this Michael Kors watch that my mom gave me for my birthday, and I’ve also been wearing this new studded crossbody bag just about every day. It’s the perfect size for running errands, and it adds a touch of glam to even the comfiest of outfits. Finally, this rose gold nail polish hasn’t left my fingertips since I got it last month; it’s the perfect combination of warm and metallic.
