We enlisted some of our favorite Instagrammers— Emily Blincoe, Daniel Volland, and Cindy Loughridge—to interpret the coziness of our new Winter Collection frames. Freezing temperatures can’t get here fast enough. (We’ll regret saying that soon, we’re sure.)
We asked the photographers (Daniel’s also an optometrist!) about their favorite elements of the season—and their tricks for warming up.
Best cold-weather activity: Hiking through the snow
Best winter accessory: Crackling fireplace
Best way to warm up: Drinking a little whiskey with friends
Best read: Harry Potter
Favorite subject to photograph: portraits of people that mean a lot to me
Rank the following cold-season flavors from lowest opinion to highest opinion:
Eggnog, Gingerbread, Peppermint, Cinnamon, Spice
Rank the following cold-season materials from least-preferred to most-preferred:
Velvet, Fleece, Fur, Corduroy, Leather, Wool, Flannel
Best cold-weather activity: It doesn’t get very cold in Austin, Texas, but when it does, I love to make a campfire in my backyard fire-pit. I love the how the smell lingers on your clothing and S’mores are never a bad call.
Favorite winter accessory: I love scarves— those really big ones that could get mistaken for a blanket.
Trick for warming up: Layers! Pile them on.
Best wintertime read: Sadly, I don’t get to cozy up with a book as much as I would like, but magazines are a nice substitution. Kinfolk magazine is awesome.
Best thing about winter is: family. My favorite family activity is going to the cabins in Bastrop State Park with my family.
Rank the following cold-season flavors from lowest opinion to highest opinion: Cinnamon, Pumpkin spice, Eggnog, Gingerbread, Peppermint
Rank the following cold-season materials from least-preferred to most-preferred: Well, I don’t buy leather or fur so: Fur (faux), Leather(faux), Wool, Fleece, Corduroy, Velvet, Flannel
Best cold-weather activity: Making a big pot of my chicken tortilla soup.
Best trick for warming up: A spiced hot toddy. Add extra rum for additional warmth.
Best wintertime read: anything from Jonathan Carroll and my ever-growing stack of magazines.
My favorite subject to photograph is: people in their environment, pockets of light throughout my home, and the winter sunset at Ocean Beach.
