Keeping Warm in Winter

After being spoiled with a mild December and January, the recent frosty temperatures and snow are starting to hit me hard. I am constantly cold and if I leave my apartment without blowdrying my hair it freezes within five minutes. The biting wind can make you not dread leaving your bed... never mind trekking through the snow to a 9am, but there are some ways to make the winter a little more bearable.

  • Wear boots

    • Even if you are just getting coffee or running to the plex, having snow in your shoes is not a good time. Plus, snow boots make it infinitely easier to walk on ice without slipping.

  • Dress in layers!

    • A parka is not always the most fashionable look, but there are some ways to make it work. Wear a sweater or a button down with a vest under your coat, so you will be warm and not look like you wore your blanket to class.

  • Accessorize!

    • Scarves and gloves not only make you look more put together, but they will also keep you warm

  • Go for the skirt! 

    • You don’t have to only wear pants for the next two months. Tights and a skirt will make you look like you actually put in some effort and you don’t have to worry about your legs freezing

If all else fails, just remember that some days you just need to stay wrapped in a blanket on your couch. Life is all about balance!
