The winds have shifted, finally blowing winter-like weather into North Carolina. I’m a Florida girl and have never been a fan of the frigid temps, but I enjoy Mother Nature’s hand in my wardrobe change. Here are some head to toe must have items on my winter list with the splurge and save options. Let’s face it, some items are worth the splurge and others, you can make up for it by saving!

embellished beanie

Maybe it’s because I’m a product of the 90s, but I’m a sucker for anything bedazzled. This caught my attention right away. Who wants a boring old beanie when you could shine with this one?

sunnies

I will always take an opportunity to plug my new favorite sunnies brand. This accessory isn’t typically filed under the winter tab, but hey, you need something to keep the whipping winds out of your eyes, right?

BP Infinity Knit Scarf | $25

​moto jacket

The beauty of this piece is you can wear it in all temperatures. Throw it on top of a graphic tee when the sun is shining bright or layer sweaters and scarves underneath for a cozier feel. The price point won’t break the bank and they come in a rainbow of gorgeous colors.

tops

I live in boots and leggings in the winter and this is the perfect simple sweater to finish the look. Add a fun colored scarf and throw on jacket and you have a chic, but cozy look.

Second to sparkles, bows and all things girlie are my favorite fashion statements. These mittens offer fun and function with the fingerless option so you can text away.

    All these options are so cute! I especially love the Blank NYC Faux Suede Moto Jacket. My ultimate winter must have is duck boots. They are practical and stylish.

    Is it weird that I love most of the save items better than the splurge ones?! I especially love the OTK boots, totally a must have!

    I’ve had no luck finding booties in my size that I love yet. Darn big get. The search continues.
