Hi everyone! Hope you are having an amazing week so far. We have had absolutely gorgeous weather this Fall and I’ve been sooo spoiled as I’ve been working outside as a “recess supervisor” aka…watching the kids play and stay safe at recess. LOL
All of a sudden though the weather has gotten…brrr cold and I’m not used to it! Not only that I have to buy me some warmer clothes! Walking around outside (not too terribly fast either) for 2.5 to 4 hours straight gets a chill going down my spine. (and my hands and my feet!)
Want to know the winter fashions to keep you from freezing this winter? Just my opinion of course…

So this week I splurged and ordered some super duper warm gloves (the gloves below) and some Dansko shoes from Amazon with a gift card I had. I felt a bit spoiled as I hardly ever buy myself much. I take good care of myself in a lot of departments…but clothing, I usually put off and let my kids buy what they want.
I still need more sweaters, scarves, a vest and nice coat. I have a nice coat, but it’s not going to be warm enough come winter!
Help me out friends! What’s your style? What colors do you like? Are you turtleneck kinda girl? I thought It would be fun to share some of the items that I’ve been looking at on Amazon. I still have a few more bucks I could spend. Help me decide!
I love these sweaters that come down in front! I’ve found that they look flattering on me, as I’m not at my optimal size right now They seem to cover the …..side baggage a little more. HA!
Here’s another one that is more of a flair on the bottom. I like the look of these also.
Turtlenecks! Are you a turtleneck girl? I am. Love them! I wear my hair up a lot and so they keep my neck warm. I would have a whole closet full if I could! There was a couple of years that I couldn’t bear to think of wearing a turtleneck as my hot flashes were crazy out of control, but I’ve kind of moved past that stage…for the most part. I know! Too much information!
Scarves…I love scarves and I found this super fun video on Youtube that shows you 25 ways to wear a scarf in under 5 minutes! Totally worth a watch!
I tend to try to stay with pretty neutral colors so that most of my wardrobe match’s with out much thought. It’s easy to mix and match with a minimal amount of money spent. Which by the way, if you ever need help learning how to buy clothes at the thrift store…I can help! Trust me…I’m a pro. Check out the Ultimate Thrift Store Guide to Successful Clothes Shopping
I sort of love vests. I haven’t really worn any outdoorsy types of vests for quite some time, but now that I need to stay toasty warm…I’m getting one. Tell me what you think of the fur. It seems like these days folks are so up in arms about fur…even fake fur. I’m super sorry but I can’t really relate as I grew up in a family that hunts and it’s perfectly acceptable to eat the meat and use the fur. Thinking of this cute vest.
I kind of LOVE these boots! Since it’s not quite winter I put these off for a bit because they are a little pricey, but I can get them on Amazon for not too bad of price. Of course that can change quickly…
I bought these Mountain Made gloves too and I LOVE them! They are more attractive in real life…and fit super tight with the special fingers for using your cell phone.
As far as pants go, I’m a jeans kinda girl. I’ll just wear leggings underneath them.
Not sure what I’m going to do about a super warm coat yet. Oh and a hat…I might have to break down and actually wear a hat…I don’t think I look good in hats, but there’s got to be one out there for me don’t ya think?!
Boy this Playground Supervisor business is costing me a pretty penny! I’m putting a bug in my families ear for Christmas gifts.
Oh well, it’s such a blast to help the kids…they are so sweet. Their little hearts are lonely at Public School and there are lots of obstacles to overcome on the playground!
So give me a heads up! How do you stay toasty warm when it’s freezing outside? What is you fave “go to” outerwear? What MUST you have to keep from freezing?
Have a beeeautiful day! A
Linking up to these awesome parties!
