It took 7 years of living in Florida for me to crave a cold weather/skiing type of vacation. I was living in Boston prior Florida, and I've been slowly thawing out ever since! (It snows so much there!) To achieve today's cold weather look, I pinned a faux fur collar onto a fuzzy vest using safety pins. (I only used two pins for the photos but would recommend more to keep it secure while wearing.) I can envision this look next to a fireplace while sipping hot cocoa; hopefully that dream will become a reality soon. (Any recommendations for lodges/cute ski towns are appreciated!)

Is there anything better than a red dress? I have one in my closet, from NYE last year, that I just love but it's cocktail attire and I'd love to have something a bit more casual. I had planned to wear this red dress over the weekend to a holiday dinner, but it was too chilly and also too much walking for high heels, so I switched to a red shirt and jeans (plus flats and a jacket) at the last minute. (Don't you love when real life thwarts your cute-outfit plans?!) Now I gotta decide if it makes sense to keep this dress for another holiday occasion. See more red dress options below!
