Chill Out: Winter Weather Must Haves

You blinked at some point during autumn and missed it- the switch from a nip in the air to snowpocalypse/frigid freezing help! We did the same thing. Perhaps we don’t want to acknowledge what is just around the corner: The looming dark, cold days of slush, snow and bitter winds. Perhaps we are so taken with the lovely weather and colors of fall we let ourselves forget- every year- that we really do need to dust off the snow boots, haul out the hats and gloves, put the ice scraper in the car. Because one morning, suddenly, it is pitch black and has snowed overnight, and you were wearing flip flops only the day before. It’s not too late to get your winter act together. Grab any item off of this list and ensure warmth and comfort to help heat up the numbness of winter. Don a cozy new hat, pack gloves in your work bag, be ready. It will make you feel infinitely better about the snowy and cold state of affairs. And, at the very least, you can look forward to Christmas, which is only six weeks away.

  • Bebe Jewel Band Cloche


    Sparkle brighter than the snowflakes this winter when you don this beaded, jeweled felt cloche. After all, why can’t outerwear be bedazzled, too? We can rarely think of an occasion that doesn’t merit a few spangles, and a gray, slushy winter day definitely needs some jazzing up.
