While it took some time here in Texas to get cold weather, it is finally here! I like the winter weather for the most part especially because I get to wear boots and jackets and I don’t have to fear the weather changing throughout the day too much like it does during the fall.
I decided to share with y’all my essentials for this winter season. Enjoy!
Jackets: I don’t wear jackets as much as I wear hoodies but when I find one that I love and fits great I get super happy! The jacket in the picture above is the one I own and it is super warm! I made it a goal to get a jacket this winter because last winter I only had hoodies and I suffered when it got colder so I am super glad I got my jacket this year.
Beanies & Scarves: Beanies are something I can only wear in the winter because I get hot easily. I especially like beanies for when I have to got out but my hair is a mess, I throw one on and I am ready to go. The one I own is from American Eagle and it is super warm! Scarves are something that greatly needed in the winter. For this season I like to wear white ones and thicker scarves. While in the fall I can get away with using light scarves, I definitely feel the need to wear thicker ones in the winter.
Boots: While I do have my Uggs, I like to also have a pair of nice boots that I can wear when I need to be a bit more dressy. I got the ones pictures above from Famous Footwear and I think the are super adorable!!
Slippers: For when my feet get cold I like to get slippers like the ones pictures above because it covers the bottom part of my legs and it really keeps my feet nice and toasty.
Blanket: I really wanted a blanket for Christmas and my boyfriend gave me one from Kohl’s from the Jennifer Lopez collection. It is super warm and chic at the same time. I like to sleep with a small blanket along with my regular blankets in the winter for added warmth at night.
Lotion & Lip Balm: It is super important to keep moisturized in the winter because the air is cold and our skin can crack. I also notice that when I don’t put lotion on during the winter my skin gets super itchy because it gets super dry. Lotion and lip balms are a big must during the winter months.
Cream Blush & Bronzer: Again, because our skin tends to be drier during this season, it is good to use cream blush and bronzer to keep the skin looking dewy and moisturized. The one I really like right now is the e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzer Cream, you can check out my full review here!
Liquid Eyeliner: I think a nice winged liner look on the eyes is amazing for the winter time. In the fall I like to do smokier eyes but for winter I think a neutral eyeshadow and a nice wing look amazing. I really like to use the Laura Geller Eye Calligraphy Liquid Liner Trio to achieve the winged liner, check out my full review here!
Warm, Delicious, Drinks!!: Of course warm drinks are a must for the winter!! Right now my favorite warm drinks are the Starbucks Hot Chocolate and the Folgers Lively Colombian Coffee.
