4 Winter Essentials We Can't Live Without
The recent winter chill has had us thinking more about the essentials that any woman needs to survive those cold winter months in style. Each of these 4 pieces has been crucial to keeping us warm and hydrated during the cold, dry winter days and is sure to keep you both stylish and comfortable.
Canada Goose Down Coat
I could honestly do a post just on these coats. When the winter weather gets as cold as it has been, there is no better coat that Canada Goose Down. I can honestly say, with the weather being consistently below zero here in the past few weeks, I have never been cold in this coat. The exterior is a canvas material that breaks the wind while the interior goose down keeps you insulated from the sub zero temperatures. The hood is line with fleece and contains a coyote fur trim to shield your face and head from the weather. Shop for your new favorite coat here.
During the cold winter months, those ankle socks are no longer providing enough thermal protection for your feet and ankles. I instead opt for wool socks and stock up on them every Christmas. Not only can get buy fashion versions to make a statement peeking out of your winter boots, you can wear them casually around the house for when you need a little bit of extra warmth. Pick up a set here.
I have an obsession with Corkcicle that started when we purchased our first thermos this past summer in California. I love the light blue version that I have because I find it adorable and a perfect color for the winter months. The best part is that these keep your coffee/tea hot all day, even in the bitter cold. I have had the experience of getting into my car with the coffee and noticing that the outside is utterly freezing while my coffee is still piping hot. No one needs cold brew in the morning when it is -5 outside and this thermos makes sure your coffee will stay warm all day long. Find your favorite color here.
As you spend more time outside and notice that it is incredibly dry, you will need to start drinking more water to stay hydrated and may start to get cracked lips like I do. My solution for this every winter is an amazing lip balm. One that we have been loving recently is Kiehl's Lip Balm #1. It is only $7 and seems to last forever. Just apply to dry lips and let the excess absorb. This product has been the single reason I have not had cracked and peeling lips constantly for the last three weeks.
