This is definitely the part of winter I dislike most. It's grey and gloomy. All the sparkle of the holidays is gone. It's often too cold to even attempt any outdoor winter fun activities. Some days our furnace can't even keep up with the low temps.  So what's a girl to do? Keep buying all the cozy oversized sweaters! I found this sweater and these jeans on thredUP last month and was thrilled! I got this sweater in grey years ago and love the length and high turtleneck. The fair isle version is definitely cuter! I linked to lots of similar options in the widget below since this exact style is no longer available. Cozy sweaters in bright colors, patterns, with embellishments or other details is my number one tip for staying warm! 

But sweaters aren't the only thing that have helped to keep me warm lately. Cute accessories can help you stay warm and look cute, too! My husband loves getting me cold weather accessories like my hat and mittens. These were recent gifts from him and I love them! The mittens are fleece lined and the warmest I own. They are pullover mittens so you can easily pull the top part off if you need to use your hands for your phone. I do have smartphone gloves, but I find they aren't warm and they often don't work anyway. I am thrilled at how trendy beanie hats are right now because they are really warm, too. This beanie is double lined and keeps my head and ears nice and toasty. The adorable fur pom pom at the top makes it even better! It actually snaps on to make it easier to wash and you can even buy different colored pom poms to switch it up!

I'd love to know, how do you stay warm while looking cute during cold weather?

  4. You look so cute and WARM! I love the length of that sweater! I've had a tough time finding longer tops that I can wear with leggings this year for some reason, but this sweater looks perfect for that.

  9. It's soooo gray and gloomy in KC right now- and it's been freezing! I'm all about bundling up without sacrificing style.

  10. I look lazy in winters. Dallas is colder than any other winters and am so not liking it. Styling game is still on :) I love beanies and booties to enhance me looks.

  11. The snap off pom pom hat sounds like a really clever idea. I read a couple reviews and laughed when a person gave it one star because 'assembly was required' haha. Fair Isle is always super cute, and this sweater looks really cozy!

  18. The interchangeable pom poms are a great idea! This looks like such a comfortable and cosy winter outfit too! I have a few colourful knits, I definitely want to get more when winter rolls around later this year :)

    Hope that you are having a great week and that you have a nice weekend ahead of you! Fingers crossed you stay cosy and warm! We will probably have a quiet one as we are all still a little unwell.

  20. Girl, you are the epitome of look cute. No matter the temps!! Going to shop your links. I really love a turtleneck and one that is oversized with a Fair Isle pattern would be a fabulous find. I have a couple of Fair Isles I need to wear before spring arrives, so your post was a great reminder. Always adorable!!

  24. I struggle with this. I don't like to spend money on winter accessories/coats/gear, I don't know why, but I just don't enjoy buying those things. So then I always feel frumpy this time of year when I'm outside. I need to step up my winter game. You look so cute and cozy!

  25. Girl I hear you, I hate the dark gloomy winters too! Glad you added some vibrancy with the pop of colors in your outfit! Love how cute & pretty the outfit looks :)
    Hope you had an amazing weekend!
