winter essentials.

I don't know about you guys, but all I see when the first snow hits is Northface coats, Uggs, and leggings. Blah. 

So I figured I would help some of you out with some inspiration for the upcoming winter. You can look cute, AND unique. All at once. 

Now, don't get me wrong, all of those clothing items are cute! But for my taste a little too, well, common. So don't hate on what I'm saying. Please. 

First off. Instead of the boring black Northface coat - Try a cute trench or tweed jacket. Super chic, I must say.

Need some boots? How about these babies. Or some cute wedge boots if you are into that sort of thing. 

And try to pair them with something comfy, yet different. Go for the leggings, but try these out instead of the normal black leggings. Go for olive, or navy, gray, a dark purple? Heck, try some sparkles out too. 


Don't forget your gloves either! :)

OH! And if I catch annnnyyyy of you wearing this.

I will be very disappointed. 

Have a wonderful day, friends. :)

Oh! And if you would like to decorate my blog with your lovely buttons over on the left hand side, look here. :)
