Winter Must-Haves

Winter Must-Haves

1. DKNY Coat (on sale for less than $150!)
2. Sorel Boots
3. Fox River Heavy Duty Socks
4. Asos Chunky Infinity Scarf
5. J. Crew Factory Tech Gloves (on sale now!)
6. J. Crew Glittens (extra 40% off with code SHOPNOW)
7. Gap Hat (on sale now!)
8. J. Crew Factory Earmuffs (on sale now!)

If you live where you experience all four seasons, then you know it is essential to be prepared for the brutally cold winter months. Here in Chicago, winters are mean. Not only is the highest temperature of the day 0 degrees, but then you have to battle with the wind chill and it makes it -20 degrees. Oh and the wind only runs in one direction - in your face!  I came up with a winter must-have and what I actually wear daily (Oh Spring, where are you?!). A long parka is a must with a faux fur hood. That faux fur will save you from the wind! Snow boots lined with heavy duty socks are a need so it can protect your feet from snow, slush, and freezing rain. I actually layer my glittens with tech gloves because I don't want to expose my hands to the cold air when I have to reach for my phone - so proud of myself for this idea! And of course you have to protect your ears. If my hair has to be in good conditions (eh, never is), I wear the earmuffs. But if I don't care about having hat hair, definitely go for the pompom hat. I definitely can't forget about a chunky knit scarf. Those are life savers and I actually never take it off. How do you guys dress for winter?

  22. I'm freezing just reading about the crazy cold weather you have there in Chicago (I can barely tolerate the cold weather we have in VA). I would definitely have to wear all of these warm weather picks anytime I stepped outside if I lived in a place with arctic-like temperatures. :)
