Winter Staple: Stadium Coat

Happy New Year!

I hope you had a wonderful time ringing in 2017. I promised this blog post two days ago...and I am two days late. Sometimes with life, you just have to roll with the punches of flight delays, fevers, and so on. I am back in North Carolina after a wonderful holiday visit with family and friends. I will be posting my New Year's Resolutions soon, and I promise to be keeping them. 

Today's post is all about my new obsession, my stadium coat! I got it as a gift for Christmas, and I have been wearing it nonstop.

If you live in a place where it hits below 40 degrees in the winter, a coat is an essential! I got a parka from J. Crew last season, so I knew this would be a good coat. 

This coat is easy to pair with anything! I got grey because I am obsessed with neutrals, but it comes in so many colors. 

I'm wearing my favorite leather leggings (another wardrobe staple) and I topped the look off with my favorite Rebecca Minkoff purse. 

The coat is pricey, but definitely a wise investment! I can't wait to blog more in 2017 and expand The Z List. I have exciting plans and I can't wait for y'all to join me on the adventure.




Snow Days

Wake is experiencing its first snow day today! Ironically, I don't have Friday classes so really this is just an ordinary day for me--except I am house ridden. North Carolina doesn't see too much snow, but when it does snow here, people stay inside. Movies, snacks, and snuggles are on my agenda!

Fitz LOVES the snow! He is definitely not a California pup :) it is so cute to watch him prance around the snow and flop around. It makes my heart so happy to see him play. 

As for snow attire, I really suggest a parka and some thick sweaters! Today I wore my parka, a wrap, a wool sweater, leather pants, and my Hunters! All good, quality winter essentials. 


Y'all stay safe out there! 


Casual Mondays

Whew! Sorority recruitment is almost over (today the fun happens-Bid day!) and I am so wiped.

As the weather cools I have been looking forward to some of my favorite styles. I love fur (fake-duh) lined items. 

My casual attire usually looks like leggings or lounge pants, but today I am wearing jeans (a rarity for me). 

Sweaters are totally my winter staple. Add some comfy pants and a vest and you have my basic look. 

I also tend to wear boots. They're super comfy and they keep my feet warm :)

Happy Monday--make this week great!
