Cold Weather Must Haves

Well wouldn't you know, we had the first snow of the season last Thursday and as exciting as it is, there's always a bit of panic that sets in when that happens! It's about to get cold and for a long time! This is going to be my ninth winter here in Boston, while certain aspects of living in the North I'm quite comfortable with, the bitter cold is something I don't think I'll ever get accustomed to! I wanted to share a few cold weather must haves and added in a few items that I picked up for Sophia as we endure our first winter with a baby in tow!

I'm so thankful that I registered for the insulated cover for our stroller! It's really not easy bundling up a baby with so many layers to go outside, but having this extra cover on the stroller will keep Sophia warm without needing to bring out an extra blanket! I also have the gloves that attach to the stroller, which to be honest I thought were completely unnecessary, but after hearing all my friends that have them rave about the gloves, I ordered them immediately! 

The one coat missing from my collection the last nine years has been the long puffer coat. It's not the sexiest of coats, but my aim in the winter is to be really nice and warm. I'm hoping that there's going to be a great Black Friday sale on North Face coats. With all the puffy coats that I have, the one that I really want to add is the cozy teddy coat

Regardless of if we have the heat turned on, I still want to be cozied up like a burrito in a blanket and the heated one we have is my favorite! I didn't use it at all last winter because I was worried to put heat on myself while pregnant (strange things I googled) but I've already been using it this year!

I stumbled upon the Revlon Kiss balms at CVS and have since purchased every color, but my favorite is "juicy peach." It gives you just a hint of color, but most importantly keeps your lips hydrated and safe from getting chapped. 

I definitely gravitate towards pom pom hats in the winter & even though I'd love to be bold and have a colorful one, I stick to more neutral colors so that I could wear it with pretty much anything! 

So I don't technically have these yet, but I let Santa know that I was really hoping to get a pair of airpods. I really don't want to have to fumble with cords this winter (and in general) so I've decided that I'm okay with looking like I have q-tips hanging from my ears for the ease of listening, talking and using my phone during the winter! 

Of course I couldn't survive winter without my sorel boots and great gloves, but these are some of my newer essentials! 

Also, thank you to everyone for entering the giveaway for my 5 year blog anniversary! I sent the winner, Tanya and she's been notified! 

What are some of your must have winter items?!

  2. Those gloves aren't the prettiest but they are genius!!!! WIsh they were around when I had my kids. A baby in the winter is no joke-- it's so tough getting them bundled up. Stay warm!!

  3. We had our first snow on Thursday too. Ugh! I am not ready for the cold and snow that comes with winter. Of course, around here people (including me) don't know how to drive in the snow,so traffic was terrible! That puffy coat is looking mighty good right now!

  7. I always keep lip balms scattered all over, by my bed, in my purse, in our bathroom cabinet as the winter months are hard on my lips. I might need to go grab the Revlon Kiss Balms and try them out. Have a fabulous week.

  12. I love pom pom toboggans so much! They make an outfit look festive! I also want some of those air pods because I'm over cords, too.

  15. I love the cozy teddy coats but man, I think it would add like an extra 10 lbs on me. I want one to sleep in though :)

  17. I've been keeping an eye on the long puffer coats too. It's the one winter item I don't have and really could use at this point. How are we already into december weather up here?! Stay warm girl :-)

  25. Those stroller covers are SO convenient with little ones! We loved ours. And I love that super cozy zip up. I just bought a big fleece from Old Navy and it's my new favorite.

  26. My puffy coat is a MUST. I always score them at Burlington- which is so random, but for like 80% off you can't beat it. Last year I got a black Guess one, with gold hardware and love it. Those gloves are a genius idea for the stroller!

  27. I love a good puffy parka- great cozy list, sister! You're ready for winter!
