Must Haves: 14 Of This Season’s Chicest & Coziest Cape Coats

I don’t know what it is about a cape that looks so sophisticated, but every time I put one on I feel like some classy winter minx who wears leather gloves and saunters around the Met every weekend. Freezing in winter weather doesn’t have to be all miserable, right? Capes make outerwear a bit more fun — and maybe even make you feel like you can fly like some tweed-covered superhero.

This Cat Perfectly Sums Up Our Feelings About Winter

Cat

It’s this cat’s first time experiencing snow, and I can’t tell whether she’s horrified or disturbingly enthused, but doesn’t her ability to find something to be expressive about during the Worst Season Ever make winter’s onset a little bit easier? Do you think she has the sheer terror on her mind that the rest of us do when we’re scraping off our cars on that first icy morning of the season? [HuffPost] [Image via Imgur]

8 Reasons I Am Already Earnestly, Unironically Looking Forward To Christmas

YES. I am READY FOR CHRISTMAS. I have a job that pays me more than $10 an hour, ten hours a week this year (couldn’t say that last year), my overall health is in a good place, I’m determined to enjoy the cold weather instead of trudging through it, and my boyfriend and I are moving into a larger-than-studio apartment at the beginning of December, so I’ll actually have space to decorate.

November 1st marked Day 1 of Christmas-music-only radio stations, and Christmas items are already stocked in Walgreens, so basically, it’s Christmas now. Here are the things I’m looking forward to most… Keep reading »

10 Items I Need To Buy In Order To Survive My 14th East Coast Winter

So, I decided to stay in New York City for at least another year, after a recent bout of depression made me realize I wasn’t ready to uproot myself just yet. I found a new apartment in Brooklyn that I’m really excited about (moving November 1), my friends and family are thrilled I’m sticking around, and I’m generally feeling a bit better mentally. But there’s just one problem: WINTER IS COMING. I. Hate. Winter. I mean, I like it during the first snow of the season, and I like the initially chilly days of fall, when I can break out my plaid flannels. But winter? Winter is bullshit. It is long. It is cold. It is dark. It threatens to drive me insane every year. But because I’m sort of vain and I really like fashion, one sure way to at least temporarily pull me from the clutches of the winter blues is to shop for new winter clothes. Honestly, if my outfit is ON POINT and I’m feeling high on my own supply, the cold bothers me a lot less. So, for the sake of my own mental health, I have prepared a list of the various items I — and possibly you, if you also suffer from Severe Winter Hatred — need to acquire in order to survive my 14th East Coast winter.

Must Haves: 10 Winter Essentials You Should Buy At An Army-Navy Surplus Store

One of the big things I do to keep my wardrobe minimal is to buy the hardiest, simplest possible clothes and gear I can find whenever I have the occasion to buy something. I’m already gearing up for winter because the upcoming winter in Chicago is supposed to be about as bad as the last winter, which is kind of sob-inducing after the 2013-2014 Endless Winter. I spent the Polar Vortex in wool socks and motorcycle boots. That is not happening again. I will be buying insulated everything, and everything I wear will be able to eat through snow.

Flask Mittens Are The Only Way You’re Going To Survive This Winter

It’s no secret that I hate winter with a very special kind of passion, which is unfortunate considering the fact that on the East Coast it tries to linger on all the way into late April like a bitter ex that won’t go away. Thankfully, these flask mittens now exist, so I can simultaneously keep myself extra toasty and take the edge off the reality of a 4 p.m. sunset. The flask has a bite valve to save you the hassle of having to take off the mittens to unscrew the top, because come winter you’ll presumably have already wasted 20 minutes of your day getting all those layers on in the first place and it would just be crazy to take the mitten off again. I think these are meant to be for chilly football games, ski trips, sledding, and other adventuresome outdoor activities instead of day-to-day winter commuting. Sure, I’ll use them for those exciting things, but hell, I’ll be needing them just to make it to the corner bodega and back. Let’s be honest with ourselves — for all we know, three more Polar Vortexes could be on their way this year. Now is the time to prepare! Think of these as a loving gift to your future self — the one who will have to get up at 6am on a February weekend morning to shovel your driveway. [That’s Nerdalicious]
