Knits

By: Emilia

 It’s cold outside. All I want to wear from now on are comfy sweaters and thick socks. I have to admit that winter is not only my favorite season because of the weather, but because of the clothes. Life is so easy on Saturday mornings when all I have to do is put on my favorite sweater and curl up under a soft blanket. The weather gets pretty chilly during the winter months, so if you’re in the same boat as I am, stay with me.  

Sweaters

I’m going to start out with my favorite clothing piece of all time: a nice, cozy sweater. When I was out winter shopping, my arms were getting a workout from all the chunky sweaters I had in my hands. I wanted to buy every sweater I saw. With sweaters, there’s no hard thinking the night before school as to what you’re going to wear the next day. I love to wear a long sweater over black tights and my favorite pair of boots. Some days I’ll wear a cropped sweater over a skirt and pair it with some lace up boots and socks. Sweater cardigans make life easy, too. Throw them over a long t-shirt and tights. Wear It with a neutral colored tank top and some skinnies. Knitted dresses are beautiful, also. You can pair a sweater dress with some tights and some boots, or if it’s not so brisk out, just wear it with some patterned socks and black boots. It’s professional enough for work and school, yet super comfy.

Socks

Socks pair well with neutral colored booties and keep you warm during the cold. Knee high socks look great when matched with knee-high boots, brown or black. Lace up boots are styled easily with some patterned socks, peeking through just the top of your shoes. Roll down your socks a bit to accommodate ankle booties. You can also wear socks over black leggings or sheer tights.

Scarves

Bad hair days are the norm for me, I don’t know about you guys. I usually end up putting my hair in a high pony tail or simple bun when it doesn’t want to cooperate. However, I feel like I’m missing something when I put my hair up. So, I throw on a scarf before I leave my house. My closet consists of neutral colored scarves, easy to pair with any outfit.

Mittens/Gloves

It’s a must to keep your hands from freezing off during the winter. Whether you’re being goofy with your friends or family in the snow, or can’t bare the breeze from your work or school to your car, gloves are super important.

Headwear

I’m not much of a beanie fan myself, but when it get’s cold, I need something to keep my ears warm! So on the beanie goes, and suddenly my ears don’t feel like ice anymore.

Blankets

Lastly, something to cuddle up in bed with. I love to wrap myself in a warm blanket after a cold day outside and have a cup of tea on my night stand. A good book would definitely top it all off and off to sleep I go. Do any of you guys love these kinds of nights? They are so magical to me.

I hope you all have had a great winter so far and this year, treat yourself to soft things and stay warm. Wherever the sun is out, I hope maybe you could wear a few of these items. If not, hope everything is well over in the sunny parts of our world. Happy new year x

O semblante dela era triste, ela carregava todas as dores do mundo em seu peito. A solidão costumava ser a sua companhia, dentro dela existia um temporal, que saiam pelos olhos. A saudade fazia de seu coração moradia.
