corduroy leggings c/o lands end / nordic boots – j crew
I tend to gravitate towards pops of red in winter outfits to brighten up the mundane and bring a little après ski style to my everyday looks. It’s easy to deviate towards a very neutral color palate after the holidays but I’m a big fan of color and believe everyone should be adding it a little bit into their outfits.
Two items I want to highlight in this outfit are the leggings and boots. The leggings are corduroy leggings from Land’s End and have been in heavy rotation all winter long. I have had the tan pair for years and this year got the navy pair. It’s hard to tell in photos but they are thicker and much nicer looking than regular leggings. Land’s End runs sales pretty often so you can find a deal and try them. I can guarantee you’ll love them as much as I do! I wear a XS normally in them, but bought this pair in a medium for pregnancy purposes and they’ve been fantastic.
These boots are AMAZING. I cannot begin to describe how much I love them. I was so hesitant about asking for these, and when I got them for Christmas I couldn’t be happier. They are extremely high quality in every way – the entire thing is shearling lined, they’re comfortable, they come with two pairs of laces (red and neutral), and can be worn with the flaps up or down for two different looks. They’re made of nubuck leather so I was told you should waterproof them before wearing. I used this product and ended up doing three layers before wearing them out in the snow. They got a LOT of snow on them from this quick shoot and dried very nicely. I wouldn’t wear them in heavy snow for long periods of time, but they’re perfect for everyday winter conditions. Walking in sludge, salt, a little snow, and then keeping my feet warm and dry – I couldn’t be happier!
My feet have been hurting SO badly for the last month and these are a nice relief. I’ve been wearing them almost everyday. Thankfully it’s easy to create cute outfits around them! 🙂
