Christian and I have unintentionally created an annual February ski trip, and this year we had the pleasure of taking an extra-long weekend trip with Christian’s little brother who was visiting from Mississippi, Timothy!  It was so fun to ski with the two of them, and it definitely made me nervous watching them race each other down the mountain as I kep a snail’s pace behind them. Thankfully we had a great trip with no injuries (other than my usual bruises on my shins from ski boots – is anyone else like that?).

A snowy weekend was just the excuse to pull out this fur-trimmed beauty that’s been staring at me from my bed everyday.  I’m a sucker for a fur-trimmed anything and this jacket has such a great fit! I love the mix of leather sleeves, zippered detailing and fur – it’s definitely a statement.

And yes, I’m in heels in the snow – but in my defense this was about seven feet outside our cabin door and the fresh snow was just too gorgeous. Plus, the toe-capped heels make the outfit – and What would Carrie do?  She would definitely choose the impractical heels that completed the outfit, right?

  1. This outfit is TOTALLY chic…I just love it…probably one of my all time faves of yours. There is something feminine yet edgy about it, and I love me a little edge. Well, and duh, FAUX FUR….faux fur and I’m just in.

    1. Thank you so much, Ann! I feel the same way on the coat – mildly obsessed. Faux fur for the win. Thanks for sharing! XO

  2. Hey Kathleen! I love your blog. I use feedly to read blogs and I realized that it hasn’t been updating for your blog for the past few weeks! I’m not sure what happened. It doesn’t seem to be a problem with the other blogs I read on there. Just thought you might want to know! Also- I’m so impressed you can wear heels in the snow (I would 100% fall on my face).

    1. Thank you for letting me know! I’ve actually gotten this from a few other readers and asked my sweet web designer about it. Unfortunately, neither of us understand feedly so I don’t know if we know what we’re doing. I wonder if since I moved over from blogger to wordpress it might have to be deleted and re-added? Is that a possiblity? If you try that and it’s still not working, please let me know and THANK YOU for the heads up and for reading!! PS – let’s be honest I was only actually IN the snow for like… 10 minutes. Then I took it to the sidewalk like a normal person.

    1. South Africa is on my travel wish list – what a beautiful place you live in!!

  3. Gosh you look so amazing Kathleen!! This look is so chic and so totally a Carrie moment with the shoes! I’d like to think I’d be brave enough to rock heels in the snow but I’m not sure I would! Hat off to you girlfriend!! Xx
