Fashion File: Winter Essentials – Part I

I thought I’d share my winter essentials with all of you. These are the things that I’ve been using and wearing non-stop and which without I couldn’t survive winter 😉

PARKAS: Community Paradigm Parka / Madewell fairbanks parka (similar)
GLOVES: If you get a chance, I highly recommend snatching a pair of Aritzia’s gloves, especially those two that I’m featuring here, they are really warm and very well made 😉 TNA Piedmont Mittens / Asos Basic Converter Gloves / TNA Pyrenees Gloves
LEGGINGS: I love these two! They both are great as pj’s or loungewear  (I wore mine on Christmas day!)…they are so cute! spotted sweater-leggings (similar) / Madewell Striped Thermal leggings (similar)
SKIN CARE: Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm I can’t find anything that works better than this (any recommendations are welcome!) / Clarins Hydra Quench Intensive Serum Bi-Phase (this is AMAZING, I honestly don’t know how to explain to you how good it is, it changed my skin completely, / L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream (I’ve been fan of this hand lotion for quite some time now, always have one in my bag and another on my nightstand)
FAUX FUR COLLARS: T. Babaton Gunner Scarf / T. Babaton Dane Collar People, these are game changers, get one and then we’ll talk about how great they are, they really glam up any top 😉
