Hello hello! I have another Alaska-inspired aka cold weather outfit to share with you today. Believe it or not, this look was shot a few months ago when the weather was in the low 30’s. I had it in my queue but then life happened. So, I totally forgot about it.

This winter outfit pairs pieces I’ve probably never shared before. A cowl neck poncho (similar) and a pair of UGG boots; Koolaburra by UGG. For the longest time, I really did not understand the obsession that people had with UGGs.
After living in Alaska for 4+ years, I eventually got my feet into them. And can I say these Koolaburra by UGG boots are arguably the coziest winter boots I’ve ever worn! A little caveat: they are not the warmest so don’t expect to rock these bad boys at -40ºF. They were not meant for extreme weather conditions.
I even forgot to take off the boots on numerous occasions when I got home. They were just too cozy and, my toes loved them. I can’t say this for all the shoes I own.
I wear a U.S 9 but this Koolaburra Victoria boots thankfully did not feel ginormous on my feet. I tend to feel a certain kind of way when I wear shoes that are a little bulky. So props to UGG!
It’s hard to tell from the photos but the weather was quite chilly (things I do for photos) so I opted for my tried and true Cuddl Duds fleecewear. I swear Cuddl Duds fleecewear are like cozy UGGs for your body.
I loved them so much that I bought three additional sets (top and bottom) of the Cuddl Duds fleecewear. I’ll have a full review of Cuddl Duds on the blog soon. But for now, you can check out how I styled my Cuddl Duds at -5ºF (I think) a while back.
For reference, I am a size 4. 130-ish lbs, 5”5, and 8.5/9 in shoes.
Moving on to the cowl neck poncho (similar). Ponchos are one of those timeless pieces that are super easy to style. The loose form-fit of ponchos make them appealing on most body types.

I particularly loved the unique spin the foldover dog clip added to the poncho. And the faux leather trim added a nice finishing touch. Since I waited too long, this cowl neck poncho is now sold out, sorry 😕. But here is a similar option on Target and on Amazon.
Lastly, I dusted off my suedette leggings to pair with this look. The leggings is made from soft faux suede with an elasticized waistband. The pants is on sale for $20 and is available in both black and deep burgundy (I have both colors). But sizes on the burgundy leggings are limited (xs through 3xl) but here’s a similar one on Amazon.
