Generally, I don't claim to be an expert in any particular area (except my job!). Sure, I know a number of things. But, there are many things that I don't know and I'm okay with that. And what I do not know, I can always learn, right?
 However, I am here today to proclaim myself an absolute EXPERT in dressing for frigid temperatures. 
If there was a PhD in dressing for warmth, I would have received it (with high honors!).
...
Having lived in Michigan most of my life, I have learned that in order to stay alive and functioning from November through April, I have to dress for the weather. As a blogger, I would love to wear something other than boots and sweaters for those six long months. But, in reality, I'm a total wuss in the cold. And I'm fully convinced that when I'm cold my body goes into hibernation mode. (Let's not even talk about how unpleasant I am when I'm freezing.) So, out of basic necessity, I've learned to bundle up and just get on with it. 

So, above, I've linked my favorite (fashionable!) cold-weather accessories. Seriously, if you know me in real life, you know that I wear these exact pieces every single day for months on end. But, they are tried and true items that I recommend from my own personal experience in surviving the Polar Vortex. ;)
Stay warm, friends!
...

A few afterthoughts:


-A wool coat or a parka is a MUST in cold temps. I really like versions with faux fur because they are especially cozy and help insulate your entire neck and face.
-Faux fur earmuffs are fantastic-- they're warm, cover your ears (which are bound to get cold faster than your head), and they save you from having crazy hat hair all day.
-UGGs-- the warmest boots I have ever owned. However, they are NOT waterproof (even with the waterproof spray). 
-Hunter rain boots-- I didn't own a pair of Hunters until last year. Apparently, I lived under a rock. But, these boots are LIFE CHANGING. They are completely waterproof. However, they are not warm. If you want to "winterize" them, get some Hunter boot socks. They don't make the boots super warm, but they are pretty good.
-SOREL Joan of Arctic boots-- if you live in a snowy climate, do yourself a favor and buy these boots. They are the most important winter boots you'll ever buy and you will thank yourself for the rest of time. They are REALLY warm (too warm for Fall) and completely waterproof.

  7. Bigg Boss is a reality show based on the original Dutch Big Brother format developed by John de Mol. A number of contestants known as “housemates”, live in a purpose-built house and are isolated from the rest of the world. Each week, housemates nominate two of their peers for eviction, and the housemates who receive the most nominations would face a public vote. Of these, one would eventually leave, having been “evicted” from the House. However, there were exceptions to this process as dictated by Bigg Boss. Read more at https://biggbossvoting.in/
