I’m so excited to say that we are nearing spring but tonight’s thermostat might declare otherwise. Despite the groundhog confirming we wouldn’t have 6 more weeks of winter, the weather is only feeling more brash. It’s at this time that I’m very thankful for a few of my winter classics that I’ve put into good use over this year. Here’s an overview of the items that have saved my life since November:
One: A Colorful & Warm Beanie
I initially bought a green beanie for My Honey but promptly hijacked it for myself. According to him, heat escapes from our heads so what’s better than a bright accessory to keep the warmth?
Two: A Leopard Print Eternity Scarf
I’ve donned the same leopard scarf since last fall. It was a sneaky find snagged off a mannequin at H&M with no shame. I’m a firm believer that there’s no better accessory than one covered in spots.
Three: A Classic Grey Coat
I love grey as a neutral and feel its so necessary in the winter months. This statement may make me far from a fashionista but I refuse a mustard or red coat in fear that it may clash with my moody latte New York State of mind.
Four: Levi’s Curve ID
I’ll let you in on a little secret – the best time I shop Levi’s is after the winter holiday season. Crazy sales mean amazing jeans giving great butt. My favorite Levi’s store? Downtown NYC on Broadway in Soho.
Five: Target Xhilaration® Sneaker Wedge
Apparently on the last wave of people to discover these gems, I’m totally obsessed with my Xhilaration Wedges. Aside from feeling like Beyonce in Love On Top, they are comfortable and offer great traction during the winter months.
What about you? What can’t you live without in the winter?
