Welcome to my first outfit post of 2016! This is a great representation of what I wore the entire time I was in Finland over the holidays. I didn't take any other outfit pictures while I was there...but if I had, they would have all looked pretty similar.
I did a pretty good job at packing minimally (side note- anyone interested in a packing post? I don't have one planned for now, but could definitely pull it together if there is interest. Let me know!) and subsequently lived in this jacket, this sweater, and these booties. If you're wondering if I was cold in this (and the entire time I was there) the answer is yes. I was very cold the whole time.
As a Californian/Nashvillian, I have no idea how to dress for cold weather. This is my warmest coat, for sure, and was a real MVP on my trip. I've given it a break since I wore it every single day for almost two weeks, but usually it's the coat I reach for the most during the Winter.
I've been contemplating a post about what I would consider my top 10 wardrobe essentials, and a neutral cardigan is definitely on top of the list. It is the perfect layering piece, and goes with everything- especially when you're traveling with a limited wardrobe.
And finally, here's the debut of my Sam Edelman booties! If I'm being totally honest, I prefer booties with more of a heel. But these are undoubtedly excellent quality, color, and go with everything!

Happy little Friday guys. Have I mentioned lately how much I love January? I'm gearing up for the second weekend in a row with no plans, and I'm not mad about that one bit.
