In winter, little details make all the difference. When you’re gearing up for your morning commute or to head to the grocery store or even to just take your dog for a walk, wearing something bright and cheery, something cute and fun can often be just the thing to keep you in high spirits when contemplating the icey temperatures. This is my justification for my ever expanding hat and glove collection. I just added this pink set to the mix and they’ve been my go-to for all of February.
My favorite detail? They’re convertible! Gloves like these are the best for using your phone but retaining feeling in your digits during the cold months. Take note. If it’s seriously cold (we’re talking 15 degrees and below) wear fleece-lined gloves. But anything warmer than that? Get a pair of convertibles and your life will get 1000 times easier.
Now is a great time of year to stock up on winter accessories–they’re on sale everywhere as retailers gear up for spring. If you live in a chilly city like I do, then you know we’ve got several months left of winter temperatures before spring really hits. I used to spend all of March and April glumly donning tired winter outfits, waiting with impatience for our brief spring to really take hold. Now I embrace the late winter chill with spring-colored hats and warm accessories. It really does make all the difference.
Now, having said all that, we’ll have to see how this all pans out this year given that we’re already seeing May temperatures and it’s still February. I can’t complain, but when the inevitable late-March snowstorm blows in, I’ll be ready.
