Charles River Apparel-9

Charles River Apparel Jacket (c/o) / TOMS Sneakers (c/o) / Madewell Jeans (c/o — Also adore these. I’m a huge fan of Madewell’s “Skinny Skinny” jeans. Need sizing help? I typically wear a 26 in most jeans, but a size 25 in Madewell and J.Crew. They’re pretty stretchy!) / C.Wonder Tote (Old, but obsessing over this new tote!) / Kate Spade Sunnies (Old, newer styles here) / J.Crew Earrings (Sold out, similar here)

As this is my first winter in Chicago (#brrrrrr), I’m in need of as much quality outerwear as I can get my hands on. These photos were taken about a month ago before the cold set in, but I wear my monogrammed Charles River Apparel Soft Shell Jacket constantly under my puffer these days. I love that it’s non-bulky, and that it doesn’t cause me to look like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man when I have all my gear on! I also love that when I shed my down coat, I still have a warm, stylish and slim-fitting shell on. Often times, I wear it around the apartment–and even keep it on at casual bars and restaurants. There’s no sense in being miserable in one-degree weather, now is there?!

Anyway, let’s spread the warmth and get one of these jackets into the hands of a Kelly in the City reader. :) Enter below to win your own! Good luck!
