Winter Must Haves

Winter is here & that means there are some winter must haves to be had! The snow falls gracefully (or violently, depending where you're at) to the ground. The rain pitter patters on the asphalt. The gloomy, grey sky makes you want to just sit at home & watch Netflix all day. But what does this mean as far as style? These are your winter must haves -- your winter survival kit if you will. :]



Fuzzy socks are absolutely essential to keep your feet warm on those cold, wet evenings as well as a rubber rain boots so the water doesn't soak in when you stomp in the puddles. Spending the day in wet socks is the bane of my existence. 

I've been dying for a long camel colored or neutral coat. Although, it's a bit warm in Southern California so I doubt I'd get much use out of it. But you might. Don't let me stop you!

I was out shopping for gloves & spotted a really cool new advance in fashion & technology. "What is it?" you ask. Touchscreen-friendly gloves!!!! These gloves make it so the pointer finger, if not all the fingers, have a special fabric to make it so you can wear your gloves & browse your phone. A modern day miracle.

Go for a nice beanie with a pom pom on top because it adds a little bit more winter festivity. It's not something you could get away with wearing year round, whereas a regular beanie is a totally chill item to wear throughout the seasons. 

The blanket scarf is one of the biggest trends this winter season &  I'm not ashamed to admit that I am ready to jump on that bandwagon. Due to its gargantuan nature, you can wear it in a number of ways: scarf, wrap, weird dress or....blanket?! Same thing goes with the faux leather leggings or pants. I've spotted so many of these. They always end up looking sleek & edgy. 

What is your winter must have? Did you purchase any of these this season? Which is your favorite? :]

  4. Love the look of faux leather leggings, but they're not very warm when it's really cold outside! Believe me girl, I am coming back to LA as soon as I can! I have a place to live, just working on getting a job, saving more money, and selling all my stuff!!!!

    1. Very true. Faux leather is not warm -- in fact, it may be cold -- but that is fashion! We suffer for style. Come back soon. :P

  21. Agree with the rain boots, I purchased Hunter boots few weeks back, it's super helpful during winter here. We don't get snow but lots of rain and wind.
