Happy 2016 everyone! It's the first fashion post of the new year! I'm so excited for everything that 2016 has in store for all of us! I can already tell this might be a pretty chilly winter here in Chicago though. It's snowing as I write this. Burrr. Where's my hot cocoa?
Freezing Chicago temperatures call for extremely stylish winter accessories!
Luckily Kate Spade is having a seriously huge sale right now! Everything in the sale section is an extra 25% off using promo code: THRILL! And it certainly was a thrill scoring some of these adorable winter items at such a huge discount!
In Chicago, item number one to surviving the winter is a good winter coat, preferably a sturdy down filled coat to keep you extra warm. Unfortunately most of them are 1) pricey and 2) ugly. I wasn't about to pay a lot of money for an ugly winter coat that was just going to make me look like the Michelin Man or the Pillsbury Dough Boy!
Luckily Kate Spade topped this cutie with a huge big bow for all those girly girls out there like me to survive the winter in style! And it comes in red! Black was perfect for me though because the red one wouldn't have looked good with my hair.
Of course, one bow was just not enough! I had to nab these adorable black and white bow leather gloves, too. They are super warm and incredibly comfortable. Plus, they are tech friendly, so you can still play on your phone while wearing them.
How else am I supposed to post to instagram while it's snowing?!
We can't forget the toes! A good winter boot is so important to staying warm here in Chicago. Plus it's key to staying vertical instead of landing butt first on a slippery sheet of ice (trust me, I've taken the drive more than once since living here....and it's never pretty, haha!). SOREL always has so many amazing boots to choose from. They are my go to for comfortable, stylish snow boots. These blanket style snow boots are my favorite. I get so many compliments on them, plus they are super warm.
Stay warm Chiberia!
