Winter Essentials

The little dust of snow we got this week has me full on in Christmas mode! Christmas is my absolute favourite time of year and with our little man due Christmas Day it could not be a more special year!!! I love everything about Christmas, the decorations, christmas carols, eggnog, warm clothes, yummy treats and the time spent with friends and family over the holidays!  I am eagerly awaiting for Ikea to have their real trees for sale (Christmas tradition, we go every year and pick out a tree!!) and until then we have a jam packed weekend of prenatal classes and a calligraphy workshop I am taking with my mom!! I am so excited for both I can’t even tell you!!

Any who, back to the post;) I wanted to round up my winter essentials as we creep closer and closer to december because in Alberta you never know what the weather will bring! I also keep hearing we are suppose to have the worst winter we’ve had in years so i have taken it upon myself to be equipped with the cutest, warmest, stylish little pieces I can find!!

Pom Pom Toque

I am obessed with pom pom toques this year and this one from Miss Boss (available in store) is perfection!  Ive linked some alternative toques below!

Warm Scarf

You guys know scarves are my jam and one of the reasons I dont mind living in Alberta because you can get away with wearing on 10 months out of the year!!

A To Go Mug

When winter rolls around I tend to make a lot more warm beverages especially when I am on the go throughout the day. Its so nice to have a to go mug that is stylish and will functionally keep your drink warmer for a longer period of time!

Mittens

Who doesn’t need a good pair of mittens! There is nothing worse than grabbing onto that frozen steering wheel or getting snow on your hands when you are brushing off your car in the morning!

OTK Leather Boots

I am such a fan of this style of boot I can’t even express how much I love them. I have worn this pair of boots for the last two winter seasons and they have not let me down! Over the knee boots look great with dresses, skirts, jeans and leggings plus they keep you dry if there is a big dump of snow! Win, Win all around! Ive linked some similar styles below!

Jacket

Last but not least a warm, functional, stylish jacket! I found this jacket at Winners and its by BCBG. I love the leather patching and silver detail. It gives the “typical black jacket” some character! Nowadays there are so many designers and so many different styles of winter coat you can have a lot of fun with colour, detail and trimmings! Let the coat bring out your character!
