Sweaters. Is it just me, or are sweaters one of the best fashion inventions since riding boots and bow headbands? I was looking through a couple pages of sweaters on urban, continuously adding one sweater after another into my shopping cart (which currently stands at 34 items, probably soon to grow once I move on to shoes) when I realized how perfect sweaters are. You can literally wear them with anything. Tights, leggings, skirts, dresses, jeans, and whatever else there possibly is. Not to mention how comfortable and warm they are!?! I can't even begin to express my obsession with them. My love is growing towards tribal-y patterns in very large sizes, so you can literally wear them as a dress with tights and a bandeau (which I seriously need to begin purchasing! Suggestions?) I just added this adorable polar bear sweater from urban to my shopping cart that I'd probably just wear a black or printed skirt and boots or oxfords. Big sweaters are also great for those weekday mornings you just don't have the energy to get dresses (everyday?) For me, I've been spending these past few months forcing myself to wake up when I get dressed in the morning so I don't walk out of the house in underwear. But for those days when it takes me a half hour to wake up, roll out of bed and slump over to my closet, I automatically look towards my sweaters and cardigans, and begin pulling out all the big warm ones I can find. So my advice to you: stock up on these babies while you can, 'cuz winter is right around the corner and they're selling out fast.

I recently saw a promo for the season premiere of Pretty Little Liars in January and remembered my growing playlist of songs I got from the episodes. Whoever is in charge of music: You have beautiful taste. I have learned about so many new artists, and some of the songs are climbing my favorites charts. I visited my pll playlist and found my absolute favorite song of the first half-season.

For starters, everyone needs a coat that keeps you warm, and is functional with your wardrobe. For me, since I find myself constantly throwing on a skirt or dress with a pair of sweater tights, I pull on my long grey wool coat. It's length hits my leg at a spot that makes my legs look longer, unlike some shorter coats that hit at an awkward length. When choosing a coat, you need to visualize you closet in your head. What colors do I wear mostly? Neutrals? Brights? Florals? For me, I instantly thought of patterns, florals, and colors. So I opted with a grey coat, so no matter what I'm wearing, the color of the coat won't drown out my outfit. For others, maybe you're more of a dark, or neutral kind of person, so a brighter color, like red is more you style.
Gloves - For those freezing winter days, you need to make sure you don't catch frostbite on your fingers. When buying gloves, you also need to think about what color coat you have or are planning on getting. I came across these gloves that came in a ton of different colors a few weeks ago, and I was about to grab a pair of tan ones, when I realized I had grey and black jackets in my closet at home. I immediately picked up hot pink ones. Also, gloves can be annoying when it comes to cell phones. For me, I was always so frustrated when I had to take my gloves off to use my iPhone. So I found these gloves that have pads on the thumb and index finger, that work with touch screen phones. At first, I thought that they were kidding, so I pulled out my iPhone, tried on one of the gloves, and viola! I'm so excited to start using them, so my fingers will stay warm while sending a text message!
Scarf - If you feel like your outfit is too plain, but am having trouble deciding what to add, when in doubt, add a scarf. Scarves are so much fun to play around with. There are so many different styles and patterns to try, there's endless possibilities. I start by building up my scarf collection with all the basic colors (neutrals and a few bright colors that pop) and then I move on to patterns. The key to scarves is finding ones that actually keep you warm, not just make your shirt look cuter. Because if you're wrapping a simple piece of cloth around your neck that doesn't adjust your body heat at all, then what's the point? I admit, I do have a few thin scarves that are just for show, but I also have some that really nice ones that warm me up on days that I'm too cold to walk out of the house. I start cheap, and look at places like H&M (I just bought a grey scarf for $9.99 from there) and Forever 21 that have super cheap scarves, and some of them are actually really warm. Then, if you want some high-quality ones, I saw some beautiful scarves at Urban today, and I'm sure other stores like Free People, Anthropology and Madewell have some great ones as well.
Well I have to go to sleep, but hopefully I'll continue this wish list guide soon! xxx
