Love Want Need // Chunky Sweaters & Winter Boots

Remember last week when we mentioned a mild winter? Well we were just kidding. And to our fellow New Englanders, we apologize for jinxing you. We were hit pretty hard by Juno yesterday in both Boston and Hartford, but we ain’t complainin’ (snow dayyy!). SO all of those retailers with their Spring 2015 lines coming out… slow your roll, okay? Because it’s still chilly and slushy around these parts, and we need some gear to get us through it all. Hail to the chunky sweater and waterproof boot!

How to Look Cute in a Polar Vortex

New England is a tricky place. Just when you think things are warming back up a bit, it drops to -4 and you’re forming icicles in your hair. It can be challenging to feel cute in such a scenario, but here are some enlightening ideas to keep you not only toasty, but also adorable.gm_howtolookcuteinapolarvortex

// Find a cute puffy jacket (it’s possible, we swear!) Here are some options: JCrew, BCBG, Michael Kors, Calvin Klein

// Fur lined anything – hat, mittens, hood, scarf…you get the picture

// Chunky/knit everything – socks and hats especially!

// A scarf of any kind, your face will thank you from the bitter winds

// Stylish but practical boots – we’re big fans of LL Bean and Hunter

// Layer up with some normal clothing, because chances are, your office is an average of 70 degrees. Throw a light-weight tee under your wool sweater in case you get too hot

So there you have your typical outfit for the next month and a half.. stay warm out there kids!
