WIWW: Winter Staples + Link Up

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Instead of getting out of my comfy clothes to take decent pictures, I decided I would just remind all of you about the perfect winter necessities that you need this holiday season.

Everyone has been raving about these turtle necks (top and bottom left). Seriously, they are the softest, stretchiest, best top you can buy this season. I have three: the grey one, burgundy one, and the striped one. They are on repeat so much Chris has even noticed. If you own one, you know what I'm talking about.

The vest: the underrated article of clothing that I didn't think was a good investment until I bought two in one day and have worn them too many times since then. This quilted one (pictured bottom left) is so cozy. That's the only way I can describe it. It is soft and fluffy and fleece lined. It is perfect for Texans because our weather doesn't require a jacket, just a vest.

The olive green vest (pictured top left) goes with everything. I love that the hood is removable! It is not as fluffy as the quilted one, but equally as warm. It is one of my favorite pieces I own right now!

 Saturday is 'Small Business Saturday' where everyone is encouraged to shop small businesses. The monogrammed fleece I am wearing in the top right is from Shop Tin Roof Designs. You can find them on Etsy. These fleeces make the perfect gifts! Who doesn't love a comfy sweater?! Get your orders in before December 16th in order to have them here by Christmas! (As I type I am in my fleece...which hasn't come off in five days)

And lastly, but certainly not least, the classic jean jacket. If you don't have one, you need one. This one from Old Navy that I have (bottom right picture) is so easy to move around in and is great if you don't need a heavy coat.

So there you have it; some items that I stand behind as key pieces to your winter wardrobe. Most of my items come from Old Navy. I didn't shop at Old Navy for years, but I have recently discovered how much cute stuff they have for such an affordable price. Plus, they have sales all the time, so you really get a lot for you money.
