Dressing for Winter in the South

Thank goodness I attend college in the South, I am not sure I could dress for enough warmth that Northern weather would require! For me, Furman is more Northern than my hometown so the temperature is slightly different during the seasons, which I now get all four of!

Here is my winter wear for chilly Southern days!





For me personally, layering is what works best!

I start with a basic oxford and put a heavy cable knit sweater on over it! Jeans are always a must for me and I tuck them into some cozy camp socks and throw on my L.L. Bean Duck Boots. To make sure I stay extra warm I throw on my Barbour jacket! For even more warmth I put on one of my favorite J.Crew vests, a scarf, and some mittens of gloves!

| Barbour: Pink Bee West End (mine is the beadnell in sage and I wear it at least 4 times a week) | Sweater: Forever 21 and another awesome F21 option (goes with absolutely everything and wear it far too often, definitely recommend) | Button Down: J.Crew Factory | Jeans: Banana Republic | Socks: Camp socks from J.Crew | Boots: L.L. Bean 8 inch brown on brown | Daily Jewelry: see post here |

How do you dress for winter in your area?
And happy second snow day here at Furman!


  1. Although I'm at a school more southern than my hometown, it's actually a lot colder here than at home because we're in the Blue Ridge Mountains! Like you, I'm all about layering!

  2. Super cute as always, Dorothy!


  3. Love your Barbour! I think you've just convinced me that I need one!

  4. I love your outfit! I live in leggings, boots, and my big Canada Goose coat in the winter!

  5. From November 'til March this is my go-to outfit! I love how easy it is to throw on but still looks put together!

  6. You outfit is adorable as always! I have been wanting a Barbour jacket, and I definitely just fell in love with yours. My dress code at work only allows for jeans on Fridays, but I do wear my bean boots and camp socks quite a bit to work!

  8. I have been searching everywhere for one of those J Crew vests! They are sold out at J Crew, and I really would love to get one! Any ideas as to where I could find one? Thanks so much and I love your blog!!

  9. I love your outfit!! I'm so jealous you can wear Barbour in February, NYC is just too cold for that!


  10. Layering is seriously all I do in the winter, it just is too cold not to.
