It has been tradition for years in my family to go cut our Christmas tree down at a local tree farm. Although I am no longer at home, I have continued this tradition in my house and still get just as excited as I did when I was a child. I can remember my mom dressing us up, but still keeping warm and practical. There is something so special about bundling up and heading out in seek of that perfect tree.
So who says you can’t cut down a Christmas tree and look good while doing it?! I have put together the perfect look that will not only keep you warm, but looks super festive and chic. So if you live where it’s cold and you don’t neccesarily love it, here are a few ways you can have fun with your wardrobe to make it a little more tolerable. My favorite tradition is bundling up in a Holiday Italian wool sweaterthat all of a sudden makes it pretty easy to love winter. With its festive print and cozy rib trim how could you resist? Pair it with a practical yet chic pair of dust cedar cords and you are ready to go. For those super crisp days when the snow is dusting the ground, I always have to keep my ears warm and I find that faux fur trapper hats do just the trick. Super warm and cozy, plus they are just so darn cute! Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better…it totally does when you throw on a pair of above-the-boot socks.I love the ones with patterns or prints! It makes this look that much more festive and fun. With the winter upon us, it is either snowing or raining here in the midwest so it is crucial to find that one pair of boots you can tred in for the next 3-4 months. I personally LOVE theL.L. Bean "Bean" bootsfor a few reasons. They stand the test of time so they are ideal for rough winters. Also, they are handmade in the U.S. which I value strongly. You know you are getting great quality and crafstmanship with these classic boots. Wooh…I don’t know about you, but this is making me want to sip on hot cocoa with big puffy marshmallows!
