Maybe it’s the 5+ years I’ve spent living in cold climates now, but I think I’m getting a little better at this whole “getting dressed in the winter” thing.
I’ve learned that having a few good staples will make this daunting task so much easier when you open your weather app in the morning and cringe a little bit. One of my favorite pieces in my winter wardrobe is this gray turtleneck jumperÂ (did you know jumper = sweater? me neither until this year!) that my friends over at French ConnectionÂ nailed this past season.
It’s super warm, comfortable, easy and goes with just about everything. Now’s the time to pick things like this up super on sale!Â I recently paired it with my favorite steal of a coatÂ and the best neutral pumpsÂ I’ve found in a long time. It happened to be a bit warmer this day, but you could do the same look with a pair of neutral ankle boots or my favorite winter staple:Â over the knee boots.
I’ve had these Madewell skinny jeans for a year or so now, and they never get old and surprisingly haven’t faded a bit. I’m a big fan of their denim, not only because it fits really well but also because they’re such a cool company â€“ if you bring in a pair of any old denim you will get $20 off your next purchase. So great!

I love a good simple but classy look! Love your pretty jacket. Great look girl:)
Hi Christine. I couldn’t agree more about the grey turtle neck, it is such an attractive, warm and versatile piece. This is an all round great and modern look that I would wear myself. I also love Madewell products after buying some of their stuff when visiting California in the past. I hope they will start international orders at some stage. By the way, we call sweaters jumpers down here in Oz.
