Winter Staples

Valerie Comment

The snowiest November in Michigan has caused me to take inventory of winter staples.

Boots. Coats. Hats. Hot tea. Scarves. Anything and everything plaid. Sweaters, of course. Mittens. Turtle necks (so a girl can feel like Audrey Hepburn all winter long). Good books. Hot coffee. Wool socks. Netflix list updated with foreign films and period dramas. Blankets. Cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg all simmering in water on the stove top. Gloves. A new journal. Tights. Hot cocoa. Candles. Shawls.

Shawls. May we chat about shawls? I have picked up three winter shawls over the last couple of years thrifting and all of them were less than $3.00 each. I am becoming obsessed with them. They are so chic, so Parisian. Here's a thrift shopping hint: I bought all three winter shawls from different thrift stores. All three found in the linen section--not with the scarves. Don't leave any stone unturned when thrifting, I have discovered wonderful treasures in unlikely places.

Bootcut jeans I cut off at the bottom. I dig that fringe.
