Are you ready for winter 2016? Here's how to dress for winter fashion and keep warmEvery accessory you’ll need for the next cold, wintery mix

The North Face Denali e-Tip Gloves

I adore how soft and comfortable my The North Face Denali Thermal Etip Glove – Women’s (5348)gloves are. And they’re extremely well-paired and responsive to my iPhone which is definitely making my wait at the bus stop more productive.

This Quill Challis' Feather Print Wool Scarf from Nordstrom (40% off!) offers a fabulous opportunity to  wrap yourself in layers of multitasking warmth and style
Scarves have an incredible ability to multitask your wardrobe by wrapping you in a warm layer of style and comfort, whether you’re inside or out. In fact, today I’m sitting in my office with my scarf wrapped around my body because it’s about 10 degrees colder in here than it is in the rest of the house. Look for an easy to wrap scarf in neutral colors, like this ‘Quill Challis’ Feather Print Wool Scarf, currently on sale at 40% off at Nordstrom.

Kate Spade Beanie Hat keeps what's on the inside moving quickly

Now that I’m a Mom, I’ll finally admit that, no, it wasn’t comfortable keeping my ears exposed all those years I refused to wear a hat or ear muffs out in the cold. I now love wearing hats of many styles to keep what’s inside moving quickly. This Kate Spade Beanie Hat shelters your head with winter 2016’s slouchy beanie style.

Dakota Slippers by UGG


Before I had my own pair of Dakota Slippers, I thought people were overdoing their obsession. Now that I have them, I live in them. Not only am I wearing them now, but, on necessary occasion, I’ve taken them to our local cleaners and rushed the cleaning because I can’t be without them in the winter. The minute I walk in my house in the winter months, they go on, and they don’t come off unless I’m getting into bed or the shower. (I’ll be honest, I’ve even run a few errands into school and Wawa in them.)

Sorel Joan of Arctic -- the most popular boots sold through Julieverse

While last year’s Best Snow Boots of 2015 post is still incredibly relevant, I’ll share that the most purchased boots through that article were Sorel’s Joan of Arctic II boots. If you live in a wintery area, I recommend you try on last year’s boots today (go ahead. I’ll be here when you get back.) and make sure your boots are secure enough to make it through a cold and snowy 2016. If not, visit my boots post and grab a new pair. Your toesies will thank you.

    These posts are so bad for me because I end up wanting ALL THE THINGS!!!

    I love both pairs of boots. Unfortunately I think living in NC leaves me not needing such an intense snow pair … but maybe not? 😉

      Maybe not this year… but wasn’t it last year that you couldn’t live with them? Up here in SE PA, I’m wondering if any of my kids will have a chance to even wear their winter boots this year? Of course I bought them each new ones. Little, my unique fashionista, decided to wear hers to school today, despite the lack of snow.
