Favorite Winter Accessories

Y’all.

It is one of the more consistently chilly winters here in the Deep South that I can remember for a long, long time. And, I for one, (and I seriously may be the only one) don’t mind it one bit! I have said it once, and I will say it again, some part of me thinks I should have been born in a colder state a *bit* further North, or maybe it’s just because for my job, I travel largely throughout the Midwest and Northeast and I love the seasonality of four distinct seasons.

And the snow we got for 3 whole days in December?

Absolute Heaven!

I wrapped up in my UGA Snuggie, cranked up the little space heater, put together a puzzle, and read an entire book! It was bliss.

So, in honor of this winter season, I am sharing some of my very favorite cold weather, wintry accessories. Because “foul” weather is simply no excuse not to look and feel your best!

Glacia Knit Beret, $29.95

Glacia Knit Beret

The perfect blend of color, texture, and cozy. Very contemporary and chic! And, you can wear it as the model does above like a traditional French beret, or pull down lower as a beanie. Very versatile!

I’m a HUGE fan of the <slightly> over-sized, cozy boyfriend cardigans that are all-the-rage this season. I literally live in mind right now!

Here are a few of my favorites. Pair over your favorite jeans and either a T shirt or button-up for a comfortable, casual, and ultra-warm & cozy look!

Roccia Ruffled Cardigan by Moth, currently on sale for $69.00

Rocia Ruffled Cardigan

I love the undone sophistication of this cardigan, plus the muted mauve hue. Plus, it’s dressy enough to wear to work, but casual enough to dress down with jeans and sneaks. Love it paired with a fitted, long sleeve striped or graphic tee.

Lightweight Long Open-front Cardigan Sweater from JCrew for $88.00

A great and versatile duster! Comes in three colors, but I have to say, I am partial to the Frosty Olive.

Yum! A gorgeous neutral.

Colorblocked Wool Cardigan, $158

Colorblocked Wool Cardigan

A gorgeous chunky knit sweater/ blazer style jacket just perfect for this season! I love that it is elegantly color-blocked and fashioned after men’s wear. The sleeves are slightly belled and the pockets are just so stinking cute!

Faux-Fur Collared Cardigan, $129.95

Faux Fur-Collared Cardigan

The ultimate way to elevate a simple, cozy cardigan? Add some fur! It immediately elevates this overall look, and I am in love with it!

Echo Touch Tech Gloves, from Nordstrom for $23.40 (currently 40% off and also come in Black)

Echo 'Touch - Zip Bouclé' Tech Gloves

I personally own a pair of Echo Touch Tech gloves and I am a big, big fan! They are uniquely created to insulate and maintain warmth from within AND, very important, can be warn while using all touch-screen Tech accessories. No need to take your gloves off when making an all-important Instagram post in negative temps!

Striped Cape-Scarf, from JCrew for $39.50

The perfect blend of two of my very favorite winter accessories- capes & scarves! It’s a gorgeous, over-sized blanket scarf with arm holes… Hello versatility!

Or maybe you are feeling a classic Plaid instead?

Got you covered! Literally…

And, of course, there is everyone’s favorite winter material… cashmere! It’s ultra luxurious and instantly warm.

Two-tone Scarf in Everyday Cashmere, currently on sale for $61.99 (that’s over 50% off regular price!)

Season’s Favorites | Stocking Stuffers & Gifting Ideas

Christmas really is my absolute favorite time of year.

I use all the restraint contained in my 5’4” frame in order to not put my Christmas tree up on November 1st. And this year, shame on me, I had it up and lit the week before Thanksgiving!

No shame in my game.

I love this season, the season of giving and sharing, and all that it represents.

Salvation.

Redemption.

Joy.

Peace.

Traditions.

And one of our family’s timeless traditions is stuffing each other’s stockings on Christmas Eve and we open and unload them Christmas morning over coffee. It’s honestly, one of my favorite things that we do.

And we don’t even have a fireplace to hang the stockings! They hang from knobs on a chest-of-drawers in Mom and Dad’s formal living room.

So, I am spilling some of my favorite season’s gifting ideas- great hostess gifts for upcoming holiday parties, gifts for those in your office, gifts for under the tree, and even great stocking stuffer ideas for the whole family!

Knotted Hair Tie Set 

A perfect 6-piece set perfect for stocking-stuffing. Because, sometimes ponytails can be boring…

Euro Slide Small Credit Card Wallet 

My most-favoritest wallet I have ever owned! Small, slim, but still room for cash, coin, credit cards, membership cards, and even your Passport and ID, for the frequent traveler.

Euro Slide Credit Card Wallet - Indigo

Comes in a variety of colors: (pictured above in Indigo).

Merry & Bright Tea Towel 

I love a good tea towel.

I have no less than a dozen of them dotting my kitchen.

And this one is so lovely and cheery. Perfect for the favorite cook in your life.

Cinnamon Cayenne Spiced Cocoa 

Have you ever had Mexican Hot Chocolate?

If you haven’t, you are totally missing out! Rich and velvety hot chocolate laced with spicy cinnamon, sweet cane sugar, and finishes with a little hit of cayenne pepper. It’s the perfect winter treat!

Pop this little jar inside a coffee mug, tie a bow around the handle, and I don’t know anyone who would turn that down!

Pretty Press Personalized Note Pads 

I was given this personalized note pad set this year as a hostess gift and I absolutely love them!

Have your recipients name detailed in beautiful watercolor script (choose from 4 colors) on a set of 2 notepads on high quality paper.

Capri Blue Iridescent Jarred Candle

These are impossibly beautiful, and they smell fantastic too!

Slide View: 1: Capri Blue Iridescent Jar Candle

Capri Blue is the color pictures, but they come in a variety of colors. And, when the candle can no longer be burned, you have a beautiful accent jar for your shelf!

Lizush Bath Bombs

All Natural ingredients, non GMO, Vegan, Bath Bombs, Melts, and Shower Tablets made with Essential Oils.

And the set of 11 Bath Bombs? They come absolutely beautifully wrapped perfect for the Mom, Teacher, Co-worker, or BFF in your life!

Or, order a nice big set of them, and individually wrap them up in clear, glassine bags with a beautiful bow and pop them into stockings or attach them to the outside of a wrapped giftbox. Just lovely!

Slip, Pure Silk PillowCase 

Slide View: 2: Slip Silk Pillowcase

A top-rated product and great gift. Pure Silk Pillowcases are hypoallergenic, for anti-aging, anti-sleep creases, and the anti-bed head. Comes in a variety of colors and in its own case.

Some of my current favorites?

1-Stone Nest Clasp Bracelet (choose your own gem stone)

Hammered Wire Drop Nuggets, (choose your gem stone)

Map-Maker Luggage Tag

For the jet-setter in all of us!
