We had an unseasonably warm December in New York; it was 70 degrees on Christmas! But that's a thing of the past because it's now absolutely freezing and leaving the house without a coat isn't even a thought. We were supposed to be headed to my sister's varsity gymnastics meet today but all after school activities were cancelled due to "impending snow" (it has yet to do anything...).
Staying warm is so hard and looking cute while doing it is important! There's so many great pieces to help keep you warm and look stylish at the same time. I always say I love summer - and I do - but I LOVE winter clothes! There's something so fun about picking out winter sweaters and cute boots to match.
Here's some of my favorite cold weather essentials you need to own:
Is it just me or do bright Ray Bans like these look so good in the winter?! Granted I love my aviators all year round but on a sunny, snowy winter day, these look so pretty!
I also added my favorite candles to this roundup because I burn these nonstop most especially when it's cold out! The best part is that you can use these pretty jars for other things (like Q-tips!) once you've burned it all.
Keeping your feet warm helps keep the rest of your body warm and I always am wearing fuzzy socks no matter what! I recently bought these snow boots from Nordstrom because they're super comfy and cute too. I love cute boots and winter shoes, but nothing surpasses my favorite UGGs and Ugg slippers like these that are a little nicer and truthfully, they can be worn out and about too.
Having some really pretty winter coats is important too. I have some coats for when it's not as cold, some for style and some for FREEZING weather! I mean, if you don't walk around town looking like Olivia Pope, are you really living?
Here's some of my favorite winter coats lately:
Staying warm in the freezing months of winter and looking cute while doing it is important and fun to create looks with also! What's your favorite winter time fashion essential?
