you wanna know what the worst thing about winter is? it's not the bitter cold or mountains of snow that won't melt till may . . . it's getting a cold that just won't go away. good thing we both have the day off from work {one of them planned the other is due to a state of emergency so all the snow can be cleared . . . . } either way we're both resting up & refusing to let the cold, the outside temp & the snow take over our lives!!!

sometimes you just have to get a little royal, especially on a wednesday! these photos were taken at a local bakery in norwich, vt; king arthur flour. just take a look at their blog, totally drool worthy. if you're ever in the area this is a must stop & try venue. they just finished a huge out door kitchen, patio, cafe, and they even offer cooking/baking classes!!!! it's also a great place to take blog photos & clearly have a snack!!! hope we didn't make you too jealous.

coats. coats. coats. cake & valley.

try saying that three times fast; a lot like boats boats boats . . .  starts to sound a little weird right?!?!? ha! hope you all had a great weekend and enjoyed some sunny warm weather {or warm-ish weather depending on where you live!} today we've put together the top coat styles we LOVE to wear & layer during the winter. just take a look. also, sorry this is such a long post! next time we'll split this into a two day thing!!!


cake & valley.

1) a pea coat- we both own this classic cut in a fun color & we wear them all the time!!!

2) the "envelope" coat - you'll be able to see right away this is the best coat to dress up & dress down.

3) the midi length khaki coat- a closet staple that every girl should have.

4) the puffer coat- you definitely need one of these if the temperature drops below freezing where you live!

5) faux fur vest- layer it on top of another coat, layer it under another coat, or just wear it by itself. best. winter. accessory.

6) blazer - use this spring staple on a warmer winter day & just layer it over a heavy sweater!

7) leather coat- you just need one fabulous leather coat & it will take you places!

8) quilted jacket-no matter if it's a fancy barbour or a simple one from target just make sure it fits you well

9) fatigue- cake is obsessed with this style & can't help herself when it comes to buying these in short, long or vest style!

10) statement coats- this is where you just buy what you love, can't go wrong with that :) go for unique clasps, fun patterns, and different shapes. just remember you won't get the most use out of these coats but you'll love wearing them when you do!!!
