It’s been over two months since my last fashion post. I was doing so good for a while, but the holidays really distracted me. Today I am back! Once again I am teaming up with Becky, Meghan, and Whitney and this time we are sharing our favorite winter accessories.
Winter in the Midwest is a roller coaster ride. One day you need a parka, the next your sporting short sleeves. It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Over the years I have learned the best way to be prepared for whatever comes your ways is to layer. I try to keep several versatile pieces on hand that I can wear in many different ways.
Today I am going to show you 4 of my favorite winter pieces.
Pardon the angry face, the wind was driving me absolutely insane while I was trying to take these photos.
HELLO, pattern mixing! I took so many itty bitty baby steps to finally get to this point friends and I LOVE it. The “new” Beth is always looking for ways to mix patterns in new and exciting ways. In fact, I wore this exact outfit with leopard shoes. 3 patterns may have been a bit much, but I thought it was fun.
The piece I want to point out is this blanket scarf. Right now it is the only one I own, thanks to a very sweet friend, but I REALLY want to pick up another. This scarf is perfect for adding warmth to an outfit or wearing with my coat on a really cold night.
This is probably my go to running errands kind of outfit. Skinny jeans, converse, and a simple shirt. So if you bump into me at the grocery store or Target, this is probably what I would look like.
Let’s talk about the vest. I bought this vest earlier in the year for less than $10 thanks to a crazy sale and a coupon at JCP. But I also have a thinner quilted vest and a fleece one from Old Navy. Vests are some of my favorite winter pieces. I love the extra layer of warmth around the house. I love being able to throw them on over different jackets to mix things up. And I love being able to wear them instead of jackets or coats on those warmer winter days. Everyone needs at least 3 vests in their closet, right?!
When it’s really cold this is what I would probably have on. Actually that is a lie. I really don’t leave the house when it is really cold. Yes, I am 90 years old.
But seriously, a neutral coat (I bought this one for under $30 at Kohls) with fun, bright gloves and scarfs is my go to. I’ve actually had the ear-warmer and gloves for years now, I knit them back when I actually had time to knit. The scarf was a gift from one of my dearest friends and it matched perfectly. I haven’t stopped wearing this combo for weeks now!
My final look is a brand new one for me. This is my first and only poncho! It is the perfect little something to throw over any simple shirt to dress it up or I can even wear some of my favorite sleeveless shirts under it in the cold months too. I love having something warm to wear that isn’t a coat. I also love that this one is open in the front. I think the technical term for it is a batwing poncho, but I could seriously be making that up. I would definitely be open to adding another like it to my wardrobe.
So there you have it, 4 of my favorite winter accessories this year!
