Well guys Winter is officially here! At least if you live somewhere that has all four seasons. The dropping temperatures made me think about my favorite Winter Wardrobe Essentials and I wanted to share with y’all!


  • Puffer Jacket (preferably one that is water and wind proof): I am a huge fan in general of the brand, Patagonia. I recently got their Nano Puff Jacket and love it because not only is it wind and water resistant but it also is so lightweight while still keeping me incredibly warm.
  • Wool Coat: Sometimes the occasion calls for something a little more “polished” when it comes to coats. This is why I love the J.Crew City coat. I have it gray and have nearly worn it literally until the buttons have fall off. I think it has a super flattering silhouette and doesn’t just swallow your body up. And it’s currently over 60% off!
  • Faux Leather Leggings: These are really such a closet staple for me but I especially love them when its cold out and I’m not feeling a dress or skirt but want to still pull a “sleek” look together. I can’t say enough good things about the SPANX brand which is where my leggings are from but there are some other more affordable options out there on Amazon, etc.
  • Beanie Hat: Need I say more? I feel like I’ve developed a slight beanie addiction this year but I’m ok with it! There is obviously so many different kinds but I love a good chunky or pompom beanie because my style tends to be a little more feminine.
  • Sweater Dress: I’ve gotten a few sweater dress’s this Fall/Winter and definitely reach for them daily.  I can struggle with length sometimes because I’m around 5’8 but I love this TopShop one because it’s the perfect length and has a funnel neck.
  • Oversized Scarf: I just got this one from Anthropologie and could not recommend it more. I love a good neutral color because I can pair it with more outfits. It’s the softest thing ever and basically a blanket if you need it to be.
  • Cozy Winter Boots: I was so happy to get a pair for Christmas especially since it snowed. My boots are fleece lined and so affordable from Amazon!
