The Hat and Gloves
I remember being a kid, heading to school, and before my mom would drop me off she would ask "Did you bring your hat and gloves?" Of course, I'd groan and respond with some lie, knowing that I had purposefully left them at home. Something about a hat and gloves as a kid almost seemed 'uncool.' At least, that is what 13 year old me thought. Now, as I have gotten older I not only appreciate my winter accessories but I am not dedicating an entire post to them.
For Christmas I was so excited to get this lovely Lauren Conrad matching set that my cousin got me. Not only are they my favorite color but they are warm and so well made. I love the embellishment on the gloves adding that little extra sparkle. I have grown to like hats that have the little fur ball on the top and I cannot get over how cute, comfortable, and warm this set makes me.
Trendy Winter Jacket
Now, the winters in Chicago can be pretty brutal, almost to the point where you don't want to leave your house. We didn't get the nickname 'windy city' for nothing, am I right? Therefore, one of the things you should spend a good amount of money on is a nice winter jacket. Now, when I say spend, I don't mean your entire paycheck. Sometimes, it can feel that way when you're shopping for a jacket that is warm, cute, and something that can last. Those type of jackets can normally cost you $125.00 or more. However, these two coats listed above is found on Shein and they are reasonably priced but are also very cute. You shouldn't have to break your budget to find a coat that will fulfill all your needs. I love the colors of both these jackets as well and the detail in the hoods. These two options are perfect for a nice winter wonderland while keeping you nice and cozy.
The Snow Boots
During the winter and some of the spring Hunter boots are my absolute best friends. I know they can be a bit expensive. However, I have had mine for about 4 years now and they are still in incredible condition. If you keep them cleaned, store them in a great place, and make sure to take care of them they will be your best accessory during these cold months. I love how you can choose so many different colors for them. It's no secret that my favorite color is pink so I had to go for the pink Hunter boots. However, you can choose one to go with your personal style or some that match your jacket and accessories.
All in all, I know the winter months can be a bit long. It can feel like it's never ending. However, I hope these little must haves of mine have inspired you in some way! Thanks so much for reading lovelies and happy Monday!
Until next time
