Frosty Favorites

So yeah, unless you're living under a rock.... not only is it officially Winter and super cold... but the mid-Atlantic region got dumped on this weekend.  Snow dumped.   We got over a foot at my house, and the city of Philadelphia broke records for this time of year receiving close to 2 feet!

What's more appropriate than a post of all the cute ways to keep yourself toasty while say, digging out your car, walking pups who can't figure out the proper place to pee, or slipping on ice while entering your workplace....

Metallic Aran Isle hat $30 – J.Crew
This J.Crew Cabled beaut is actually metallic... not really my thing, but would look cute on more sparkling fashionistas...

Again, I'm not fierce enough to rock a beret, but love the chucky knit of this one... boho chic if you ask my very unprofessional opinion 


I actually received a similar hat (but it was handmade in the motherland)  from my MIL a few xmas's ago... love the flowery applique touch.... and yes, the motherland is Ireland.


Scoped this in the last REI catalog... wanted it since...

I'm not even a hat person... but when it's cold, you gotta mess the hair, warmth is far too important.

Moving on, my favorite true winter accessory (since I wear scarves year-round)... are my Glittens!... or Mloves!... you know, the hybrid love child of mittens and gloves that are known better as fingerless gloves,  the dexterity of gloves and warmth of mittens - can't go wrong, and I typically get a new pair every year.  Sadly, I can't rave about the quality of J.Crew.  I've had two pairs so far fall apart on me in less than 2 months.  Why I keep buying them is beyond me.....


Surprised I even like these, since Juicy normally reminds me of people like those girls on MTV's "Jersey Shore"... but I like the stripes and colors...

Oh Urban Outfitters, you so funky....

And of course....

I'm thinking since these are ribbed and the buttons aren't kitschy, they might actually hold it together... just maybe..


What else is missing from my cold weather arsenol?? I'm starting to feel like this kid when I go to walk the puppers....

I can't put my arms down!!!
