My first choice is this Tahari Puffer jacket in Chocolate and it's on sale!!
Dream Winter Jacket
North Face has this parka and it keeps you almost thermal!! But at $320 I'm not ready to spend that kind of money...even though I would probably be living in this jacket for 5 months out of the year!
I have these Sorel Joan of Arctic boots in grey and honestly when there is snow on the ground or the threat of a snow storm I live in them!! Are they the easiest to walk in - that's a big fat NO, do I waddle a bit like a duck, YES but, what they do have going for them...me not falling on black ice!!!
For every other winter day I can be found walking in the UGG Summer Boots - poor naming on the brands part. Some might thing that these are not fashionable, but let me tell you when you toes are warm, it hardly matters what the boots look like! I personally think these are fantastic!
I don't think I'm quite "New England" enough to sport these LL Bean Boots, but I do like that they are ankle boots!
I'm a firm believer in looking cute even if it means I have to be covered from head to toe and in the winter I take that literally! I'm really sad that I lost my favorite North Face hat last year, but I'm repurchasing it without a doubt! This is the best hat and worth the $35 price tag!! My scarf of choice is a Burberry wool scarf that was a gift from my sister from my first winter in Boston and is sadly not sold in stores anymore! I do have a few back-ups all from Target and they are just as warm! As for gloves well I have two sets - those that I wear every day and then other's for going out! How dreamy are these Kate Spade quilted gloves?
Hand and Feet warmers!! I didn't realize just how essential these were until the city was shut down earlier this year because it was too cold to go outside!! Being the rebels we are, Gary and I decided after 24+ hours cooped up inside we'd venture to the movies...well lets fast forward to Gary buying a few sets of these at CVS so our toes could defrost!!
Ear warmers are another item that I wear on those especially frigid days! I'm not afraid to have a hat on and my ears covered...at least I'll be warm!
EOS chapstick is my favorite and I have about three at any given time! Cracked and dry lips are the worst this time of year and this has been a life saver!!
So there you have my winter essentials! What do you need to survive the cold?
