The weather here in NJ is FINALLY starting to cool down! Granted, the afternoons are still 80 degrees, but the mornings and nights are chilly and perfect. The other day I went apple picking with some of my family, and we had the best time! It was chilly enough for me to wear my new ultimate favorite sweater and I was way excited about it. I saw this sweater a month or two ago at H&M, and even though I knew I wouldn’t be wearing it for a while I had to snag it! It was one of those moments in movies when the main character sees something so beautiful that all the lights dim, and there is a spotlight on the beautiful object and the angels are singing from heaven. It was basically like that only not quite as dramatic. Not only is it super soft and snuggly, but there is a full on sass party on the back. The back embroidery is not itchy at all, which is really awesome because no one likes an itchy sweater. I’m all about quirky slogans and sayings on my clothes. I think it adds something fun and different and gives my outfit personality. I decided to pair the sweater with some distressed jeans, and red Keds! This sweater is super versatile though and can be worn with so many things! It would be adorable with a skirt, leather pants, leggings, the list goes on! I know I’m going to get sooo much wear out of this baby, I totally recommend it 1000%!! I’m not sure if it’s available online, so if not I’ll link something similar!! Definitely head to your local H&M to see if they have it!! ๐Ÿ™‚

This was the best apple cider donut I’ve ever had. This is what pure joy looks like lol

There are certain items that every girl needs to have in her closet. Winter is no exception to this fact. If you want to stay cozy, chic, and most importantly warm than keep reading this post for five must-have items!

Oversized Sweaterย 

Giant sweaters are what I live in between the months of November-March. I have an entire closet overflowing with sweaters because I can’t stop myself from buying more. It’s a problem but I’m working on it.

What I’m wearing: Sweater: Luca + Grae

Coat

This is a no brainer, but a coat that keeps you warm but is also stylish is KEY for the winter months. Jackets can get pretty pricey, but it’s honestly worth the investment. Chances are the jacket will last you a long time, and usually when they cost more money the warmer and better quality they are. So even though it’s tempting to buy a coat for $2o, it may not be the warmest! Make sure you can fit layers underneath as well to stay extra warm!

What I’m wearing:ย Furry Coat: American Eagle Outfitters (sold out๐Ÿ˜ž) here is a similar one!

Boots/Snow boots

Another obvious must-have, but I figured I would mention it anyway! Crazy enough some folks go out in snow without the proper boots which is a big no-no! Keep your toes warm and do your feet a favor and get some snow boots! Usually people associate snow boots with clunky, unattractive shoes, but it’s quite the contrary these days! So many brands offer adorable snow boots that you’ll want to incorporate into your every day look!

I’m so dumb and I forgot to take pictures of my boots! Here are some really cute options though! ๐Ÿ™‚

Urbanog

Target

DSW

Blanket Scarf

These scarves are life changing. They can be used as a scarf, a poncho, a blanket, it’s incredible. I own about three and I love them all so much. They are sooo warm and because they’re so long and wide you’re able to layer them for extra warmth! It’s honestly a win-win situation.

What I’m wearing:ย Scarf: Aerie (original sold out but this is similar!)

Jeans

Every girl needs a great pair of jeans, no matter what the season. Winter is the best time for jeans though because they make your oversized sweater and boots look a bit more put together. *Pro tip: wear thermals or leggings under your jeans for extra warmth :)*

What I’m wearing:ย Jeans: Forever 21

Bonus!! Slipper Boots

I had to mention this because I don’t think I could make it an entire day without wearing my slipper boots. I wear them in public as much as I can (they have a sole which is a huge bonus). Slipper boots come in all different price ranges and styles so whatever you’re comfortable with is up to you! I think they make the perfect addition to a snuggly winter night at home. If you don’t have a pair, do yourself a favor and buy one! Your feet will thank you I promise.

What I’m wearing:ย Slipper boots: Target (mine aren’t available anymore but these are even cuter!)

I had sooo much fun doing this post with my baby sis! Let me know if you guys want to see more collabs with her ๐Ÿ™‚ We would love to do them! I hope you are all staying warm in this intense winter weather and you find my essentials helpful!

Stay cozy! xoxo
