Surviving the Cold in Blanket Scarves

I am counting down the days until summer in Chicago. 

I have endured many days walking through snow storms and icy sidewalks in college, so I figured Chicago's winters would be similar.

However, commuting in Chicago is surprisingly different. I have learned to embrace outerwear more than I did in college. More than I have my whole life in Cleveland. 

Let's start off by saying that blanket scarves are they key to success (thank you, DJ Khaled). However, this is true because they are not just warm, they are comfortable (hence the blanket part) making a morning commute bearable. 

 And then when the oversized-scarf trend goes out of style you can use it as a blanket. Great investment. This scarf is from American Eagle.

I paired it with this beanie from Old Navy which I purchased for around $3 during their 75% off sale. It is both grey and gold to match most of my wardrobe. I like the tiny polka-dots that give it a little something extra.

Even though it is freezing, the sun still likes to make an appearance. These blue mirrored sunglasses are from the Aldo Sale Shop on Ashland in Wicker Park. I got lucky, and found these on sale for $3. 

My grey sweater is from Ann Taylor, and I wear this thing everywhere. It is very comfortable and a flattering color and fit. 

The most important winter investment I made this year were these 'Joan of Arctic' Sorel boots

These are the warmest, most durable boots I have ever owned. I highly recommend them. However, my feet are super sensitive to the inside so I have to double layer with socks. 

These boots go with everything, and I love the fur detailing on the top.

Winter wear doesn't have to be bulky, you can be warm while still looking chic. 

How are you keeping warm this season? Let me know what your winter essentials are!
