As much as I love the cold weather, I still like to keep myself as warm as possible. With the months getting colder by the day, I thought I would share with you some of my tips for staying warm this winter + a look at this gorgeous scarf from Aventura that is currently on sale!
The lovely people at Aventura reached out to me about trying out a clothing item (which I will talk about a little later in the post), and I’m so grateful they did. Aventura is a eco-friendly women’s clothing brand. One of the things I love about Aventura is they are a partner of Uncommon Threads, which is an organization that provides clothing for domestic violence survivors. Aventura donates clothes to women in need to help them return to the workforce. This is something that I’ve always been passionate about, and I love that there is a clothing brand setting the path for others to do the same. You can read more about them and their mission here.
The number one thing that saves me in these colder months is layering. If it wasn’t for layering I would have to stay indoors for most of the winter. Besides the warmth, layering can be a great way to add more color and dimension to an outfit. Some of my favorite ways to layer is a turtleneck under a sweater, a tunic/longer sweater under a cropped sweater, a sweater layered over a dress, and a collared shirt under a sweater. Play around and figure out what layered look works best for you. Also if it’s a really cold day, put a undershirt/long sleeve top as a third layer!
Another way to stay warm this winter is from the inside out. Before leaving the house make yourself your favorite hot drink. It can be anything from coffee, tea, or even just some warm water. Put it in your favorite travel mug and you’re ready to go! This will help warm you up on your way to work, school, and just a day out.
Another great way to stay warm is winter accessories, but especially scarfs. As a scarf lover I have a hard time not buying them all, so when Aventura reached out to me and I saw their gorgeous scarfs, I was thrilled. This scarf is their Vega Scarf, and I am in love with the color. Blue is my favorite color, and this one goes perfectly with all my winter coats. Another pleasant surprise is that the scarf has two different patterns! This makes it almost like 2 scarfs in one, which I love when fashion items are versatile. And it is one of the softest scarfs I’ve ever felt. It’s a big favorite of mine, and my mom has even started borrowing it now. So you know when it’s mom approved, it’s good!
As much as we would all like to wear those less practical, more fashionable pieces in our wardrobe, during the colder month it’s important to choose comfort first. That doesn’t mean you can’t still be stylish, but make sure that you are comfortable so you can take on the day.
And those are my tips for staying warm this winter, + a look at my new favorite addition to my scarf collection! I hope you all stay warm! x
