• {Fashion Monday} Must have Fashion items

    AJD Fashion -winter

    Hello there and happy Monday to all, time is flying by so fast we already in the final week of February. When I was at school and university I never understood why people kept saying February goes by so fast I mean it’s only 2-3 days shorter than the rest and whilst at school it never felt like that but now out in the working world it is, with an imaginable deadlines which make me wish this year was the leap year. Anyway today I wanted to share what I think are some of the must have fashion items – winter version.

    Scarf – in the UK we seem to have the worst weather of all, can experience at times 4 seasons in 1 day and this is no joke like seriously. So having a staple item like a scarf is a must. What kind of scarf is another matter currently I am loving the blanket type of scarf which are big enough to use as a small fleece blanket when traveling on the bus for long distances.


    Gloves – Though they have made it on my must have list I hardly ever wear them but lately I have been finding myself pulling them out daily before and after work. I bought some cotton gloves which have the index and finger touch screen sensitive. They’re awesome and though they have the Christmas theme on them in black and white I am still wearing them (this girl don’t care).

    Knee high boots – I can not emphasise enough the importance of having knee high boots. If you are anything like me a cold baby you so need these to keep the pins warm since I still haven’t learnt how to dress my bottom half properly. And since I hate tights knee high boots come in very handy.

    Thermal clothes – now I know most people avoid these like a plague because the majority who wear thermals are the elderly (my parents included though they are only in their 50s) anyway I can not speak highly enough of thermals they are the best way to stay warm whilst wearing little. Like I said I am a summer baby and really prefer less clothing and I do not mean close to naked no just not a big fan of layering because I do Eskimo to the fullest and no joke.

    Winter coat/jacket – investing in a warm, strong and durable winter coat or jacket is the best way to go. Currently the States has the worst of the weather and I am sure for those trekking through it can testify to the importance of having a strong and very warm coat/jacket.

    These are some of the items that I think are a must for the winter closet. I have previously shared how to stay warm in the winter without breaking the bank on The Myrabev Life you welcome to see those tips as well.

      Everyone says a scarf for winter… but I can’t wear them! I wish I could, my neck is so cold! LOL!

      We understand fickle weather here in northern Michigan as well. Another reason why I’m glad I’m a guy, not having to deal with a zillion different choices in outfit is great. Jeans, shirt, boots, one coat and I’m ready. Life is good.

      Glove and hats are my wife’s favorites. She loves the hooded coat.

      I have been getting better at wearing scarves and gloves. I just can’t get into wearing a hat, though. For now I settle for earmuffs or a headband to cover my ears.

      It took me a long time to get into the scarf fashion statement. Now I can’t get enough. They are so inexpensive and really changes up your clothing. I pick a lot of basic colors so a powerful scarf makes all the difference.

      I have never been one to wear a scarf until recently, I got a coat that came with this tartan-print scarf that I really like. I still won’t wrap it around my neck to keep warm, but I wear it. I have this thing against gloves, earmuffs and hats – despite living in very cold temperatures…I don’t wear them.

      I agree boots are so important at this time of the year. I love how great a nice knee high boot makes an outfit look great.

      Four seasons in a day! It’s a wonder you’re not sick a lot. 😉 I love a nice scarf too, and I would really like to learn to tie one properly.

      Ok – I didn’t know that about the UK – and I love the scarfs ideas – of course, I’ve been wearing thermals since I moved up to the mountains with 4 degrees in temps during the winter – I also like being outside even in the winter – I liked your post of fun info – well written 🙂

      That fawn coloured hooded coat up there is just stunning, I want it! Great picks, I’m loving the splashes of bright colour with the scarves.

    32. February 23, 2015 / 1:09 pm

      I love scarves too! Growing up in the northeast US they were a staple during the winter. Now living in the south they make a great accessory piece on those days where it’s cooler.
