Alright pity party over, I realized I needed to get brilliant about dressing warm (my chic AF hairy coat I purchased for the sole purpose of #fashion won’t trim it any longer) to traverse the winter that feels like ages long effectively (merry Christmas lights and lovely snowfall aside). Be that as it may, on the off chance that you know me, you realize I am a (self-titled) Fashion Girl completely, and no climate is cool enough to keep me from dressing like it. Along these lines, without further goodbye, here are the pieces that have helped me remain pleasant and warm in the Chicago winter, and look darn great doing it.
