the blanket coat

The way I want to warm up this winter: a blanket coat. Not only will it be a comfy way to fend off Mr. Frost, but guaranteed, this topper will be one of the defining pieces of the season. Believe it or not, they're already selling like hot cakes. Burberry's coveted version, which model Cara Delevigne wore as the closing look of the Fall 2014 runway show (last image), is already sold out at Netaporter but available here. Chloe's version, above and directly below, can be found here and here. I'd also like to wrap myself up in these cozy options from See by Chloe, Asos (and this one too!) and Alice and Olivia.

super sneaks

I typically relegate my red Superga sneakers, pictured here, to mundane days, filled with errand running and whatnot. Vogue editor Alessandra Codinha, above, proves that these kicks deserve to come out of my closet more often. When teamed with a feminine yet easygoing skirt or dress, they're good enough for shopping jaunts, bopping around town, fun lunching, and more. Plus, they couldn't be more comfortable.
