Happy Friday y'all!!

The official first day of winter is less than a week away (even though it feels like it has arrived in some places), so I thought it would be fun to round up the top basic pieces that you will need this season!

1. Chunky Sweaters
My absolute favorite thing to wear when it gets cold is a good chunky sweater! I love to be comfortable (and warm), and sweaters make you look a bit more put together than a hoodie does!


2. Over-The-Knee Boots
I have become a huge fan of over-the-knee boots this season! I think they elevate your outfit to another level, and are so flirty and feminine! There are flat over-the-knee boots that are perfect to wear during the day, and heeled ones to wear at night! They can also help keep your legs warm, which is a plus!


3. Winter Accessories
Beanies and scarves are two of my favorite things to wear this time of year! They not only keep you warm, but they are super cute! I have at least five different colored beanies that I can't wait to wear this winter!


4. A Good Winter Coat
A good winter coat/jacket is essential, especially if you live up north! When the temperatures are freezing, but you still want to look cute, you need to have a coat that is downtown ready! You can never go wrong with a little faux fur lining!


5. A Dark Lip
If you love lipstick like I do, a dark lip for winter is a must! I still like to stick with my usual pink shades, but I will go a bit darker during the colder months! A fun lip can bring your outfit together, and will help bring a little bit of color to your face if you're as pale as I am during the winter!



I was excited about this post, until I saw that it was going to be in the mid 70's this weekend in Charleston! I'm just hoping most of my readers are from somewhere a little bit colder, and can actually appreciate this post! ;) At least it will be cold in Maryland the next couple of weeks, so I will definitely be packing the above basics in my suitcase!

Thanks so much for reading! xo

  1. Yep I need to find two different kinds of new boots for this year. Great looking tall pair and a short pair. After that I should be set. Doesn't mean I won't stop shopping.

  7. Thank you for the great list! I would agree that a good coat is a must. Living up north, I depend on a great coat to get me through the long winters. Plus...a great way to stay warm...and look great at the same time.

  12. Yes! I love all this cozy wear! However, living in Phoenix, Arizona where there aren't many days below 60 degrees, I don't get to wear all this cuteness often. But I still LOVE it!
