Now that we are back in Wisconsin, my husband and I have been out and about visiting friends and family on a daily basis. It’s so nice to see everyone again! But I’m not going to lie, I have not exactly adjusted to the cold weather here. Haha. I was a bit more used to the mild, 70ish degree weather of New Jersey than I care to admit. So, my outfits have been consisting of sweaters, scarves, mittens, boots, boot cuffs and warm coats…basically, anything comfy and warm! (I’ll break out some dresses again soon – I swear!)

The outfit in this post has been my personal favorite over the past couple weeks, because this Old Navy cardigan is so soft, and it is nice and long. Plus, anytime I can break out boots and boot cuffs is a win in my book, too. I’m also a big fan of my mittens because, again, they’re warm…and I can also use my phone when I have them on – yay!

You guys are also probably tired of hearing me proclaim my love for this Steve Madden coat…however, it is still the best coat ever. And it’s so nice and warm! I do have to admit, though, that these darn buttons keep falling off no matter how many times I sew them on. (That’s why it’s not buttoned in the photos…I have given up for now. Haha.)

These outfit photos were taken right before I met up with my friend Ashlee and her husband Matt. We tried out a new brewery in Neenah called Lion’s Tail Brewery. I’m a huge craft beer fan (IPAs in particular), so I’m always up for trying out a new brewery! This one just opened, and it still has some kinks to work out (and only has 2 of their own brews at the moment), but it was still a fun time (and I enjoyed the other breweries they had on tap). I also loved how they had board & card games for you to use at the tables. Trying new beer and playing board games is a fantastic idea, in my opinion!

  1. Very cute! So are you back in Wisconsin living there now? I may have missed an announcement bc I was hit or miss there with keeping up for a second, but I do remember you saying you were moving! You’d love Colorado…as it’s the “Napa of craft beer” haha. I wish I had the type of system where I could drink more bc I love craft beer too. Did you get anything with stylish surprise? I put two shoes in my cart and then delayed, bc there’s so much out there right now that I wanted so I had to think about it. And obviously, they disappeared from my cart bc duh, haha. I think deep down I wanted that to happen? Next time. And at least SS didn’t crash the site this time!! XO

    1. Thank you, Lauren! And I am back in Wisconsin for the next couple weeks (and was here for the holidays), until we find out where our next destination is. And as far as travel destinations within the US go, Colorado is on the TOP of my list of places to go! There seems to be so many things I would enjoy there. 🙂 I did not participate in this Stylish Surprise, just because with the weird limbo we are in with moving..I’m trying to get rid of clothes instead of buy more. Haha. But I plan to participate in the next one! I really want to try more of the “apparel” option.

  2. I do love that red coat, you can never have too many when you live in a cold climate. It helps make the winter seem less boring! I lived in Lacrosse Wi, back in the 80s and loved it. And my hubby has relatives in that area, so we usually go down that way once a year. 🙂

  3. This Steve Madden coat is stunning! The red color is so vibrant and perfect for the drab winter days! Im glad you’ve been visiting with family and friends now that you’re back in Wisconsin. Let me tell you though, today it was only 9 degrees outside in PA so its not that much warmer over here either. We are supposed to get back up to the 30s soon.
