My last winter outfits before spring!

Hi everyone!

Here are the last of my winter outfits before spring! Winter is quite long on the East Coast, it actually snowed ice today and was in the 40s, so we're not quite there yet, but hopefully by the end of this month spring will greet us!

What I should have worn for Christmas....probably =P

Scarf: gift (but I think it's from H&M)
Sweater: Yesstyle
Skirt: Yesstyle
Tights and long socks: Uniqlo
Boots: Aldo

The sweater was a good choice, usually it's hard to know the material of sweaters and how they feel on your skin when you are buying online, but I got lucky. This is both soft and warm and the knitting is not that loose so there are no gaps or holes in the weave. However, it is a sort of cropped sweater, which I didn't expect (or maybe because I'm taller than most Asians, it would be normal for them but short for me). You can't really tell it's cropped here because the red skirt is actually a high waisted skirt, ha ha! This combo has a very Christmas vibe (hence the title) and I really would have liked to wear this for Christmas actually, but oh well, next time! 
The boots are a low wedge heel that go over the knee. They are very soft and comfortable. Not real leather so it can deal with some rain and salt without taking the trouble to prep it or clean it afterwards. Being a low heel, they are very easy to walk in and (as a person who loves high heels) feel like I'm wearing flat boots.

Scarf: Uniqlo (men's but who cares!)
Turtleneck: Uniqlo Heattech
Peacoat: Banana Republic
Red skirt: Yesstyle
Tights and long socks: Uniqlo
Short boots: Sporto (has a little orange duck as the logo) (bought at DSW)

So yes, I got another coat from Banana Republic. They might as well sponsor me now for all of this! lol Anyway, it was a very good deal. From $180 to $90 and I could not resist XD. It looks very classic too and I like that. =)
The short boots are awesome too! I also got them for sale, I don't remember how much though. They are waterproof and lined with fur! So they keep my feet warm and dry. I've walked through snow in this without too much trouble until the snow gets higher than the shoe, and well, then, yes, my feet will get wet from snow going inside the boot. But where I live, it doesn't snow that much, it only snowed that much once or twice, so I wore a longer pair of snow boots then.

I put effort in my hair that day! haha And I did milkmaid braids! It was snowy and windy those days, and I wanted to still look cute but not with messed up hair! And the bun thing gets boring, so did this! I used professional grade bobby pins which I will talk about in a review soon! And it turned out really well! My hair has grown quite long and now I can play with it a bit more. I got a ton of compliments in and outside of school, haha, definitely a confidence booster.

I love my scarf!
 Scarf: H&M
Turtleneck: Banana Republic
Peacoat: Banana Republic
Gray skirt: Yesstyle
Tights and long socks: Uniqlo
Boots: Aldo

Yes, here's the peacoat again. =P But it I really like it okay! XD
The sky blue turtleneck bring some lightness and softness into the outfit, starting that color transition towards spring (but not the clothing transition, still gotta wait). It is quite soft and comfortable, a little shapeless, but who care when you want to be warm! I find it to be simple, clean, and chic.
The skirt, don't get it, just saying, it's way too short. I ended up donating it where some child could wear it, because it was so dangerously short! Ended up buying a very similar looking one in Zara for $20 that was much better material and more appropriate length. =P
That scarf will probably be my spring scarf this season! I love it so much. It is actually very very long, but also incredibly soft. I can wrap it around my neck at least 3 times if I want extra warmth and it has a floral print that screams for spring, but with toned down soft gray and white neutral colors that can match most outfits. ^_^

I loved winter; it was beautiful and terrible (mostly the melting and the ice), but I am so ready for spring! When I went back to CA, it was 90F and sunny and awesome! I don't like summers here because they are hot and humid, but spring should be fun, in the 60s and low 70s and not humid yet! I'm looking forward to it.
Hope you liked some of my outfits and it gave you some ideas for next winter, or if you still live in a place like mine that's still cold, then some current cold weather outfit ideas.
