A few months ago I went to dinner with some friends and I was wearing pretty much this exact outfit (just a different cropped red sweatshirt, naturally). One friend sarcastically goes, “oh you couldn’t dress up for us?” I thought it was hilarious, as I’ve only been wearing sweatshirts (and sweatpants) this winter. But anything can be elevated with the right shoes (both literally and figuratively — re: heels).

What Why Where: Shearling & Shine

When you’re well into winter (and now that we have a foot of snow on the ground, it looks like it’s not going away anytime soon), trying to put an outfit together that’s warm and stylish can get pretty daunting. But when you have a strong outerwear game (the most important game in Chicago) it makes that task a little easier. I like to think I’m an avid coat collector and when it comes to this shearling and shine, it might just be my new favorite.
