Winter Essentials

I don’t like the cold weather, I don’t like the rain and I REALLY don’t like the snow. I rather be basking in 79 degrees all year long. The only thing I do love in those cold Winter months are the accessories. So many different coats, hats, ear muffs, scarves and gloves.  Every day is an adventure full of texture and warm textile.

Here are my ideas for the upcoming Winter months in black, gray/neutral and blue

Stay warm and cozy because the polar vortex is on the horizon…

All ALL ALL

Winter Additions

By now, Winter is in full throttle, and it’s time to wrap up this season’s shopping. Now before I start working on my Spring/Summer wardrobe, I want to share with you the latest additions to my closet. Unlike at the beginning of the season when I search and shop from my “Must Have” list, these buys are a bit more random – if I like it, I buy it!

All of the items below have become my favorites, go-to items during these cold winter months. They are comfy, timeless and fun. I wear them day and night, dress them up and down. All of them were great buys.

What are your favorite items for winter?

My fall “must have” list

Every year in August I start to plan my fall wardrobe. The reason I start this post with that declaration is because I am not a random shopper.

I buy all the fashion magazines, I surf the web and I comprise a “must have” list of fall essentials. After I have my list, I start browsing the stores. I do a lot of shopping online, because of my geographic location (Michigan is NOT New York. That being said there are a few good boutiques, but that is a subject for a different post ).

At that point I usually make my husband REALLY nervous, because at any given moment I will have at least ten web pages open with clothes, shoes and accessories…

When I choose my must have’s I focus on clothes and accessories that will complement my existing wardrobe. If it’s a trend that I think will be a one-season-kind-of-trend (like: neon, camouflage, military)  than I buy one item and I try to keep it on the lower part of the budget.

so, here it is:
