Living in Wisconsin during the winter months can be a tad on the brutal side so I thought I would take the time to share with you some of my winter essentials for the upcoming
cold bone chilling months. And no, you cannot go wrong with simply wearing the biggest pair of sweatpants, sweatshirts, and slippers you can find, but here are my other favorites.
1. Besides my long Northface and 180 earmuffs, the Hunter boots were by far my best investment throughout my college career. I bought mine from Overstock for only $80. I even waited patiently to be notified when my size and color were back in stock. Well worth the wait.
2. I have been on the hunt for a fur vest the past couple of weeks. Thanks K for doing some searching for me as well and dealing with me sending you links to more and more vests. This image is from Ann Taylor and of course it's sold out. It was just what I wanted. A brown I could wear with black or white. And I didn't want one that was in your face/over the top because I wanted to be able to wear it more than once a year. After I had given up on the vest, K and I headed over to Anthropologie early last week (it's dangerous having one walking distance from your apartment), and what did I find on the sale rack?! You guessed it! The fur vest I had been looking for all along.
3. I don't think I would mind having an infinite amount infinity scarves in my life. How do you like that play on words? While I love the one pictured above, one of my favorites in my closet is from LOFT. And yes I look just like this when I wear it.
5. As far as the nail polish goes, I just really don't think you can go wrong with Essie. I fully intend to wear this over winter break to add some pop to my outfits. No, it's not a bright pink, but it's still brighter than the normal grey and taupe I keep using. And it's called cocktail bling, so what's not to love?!
