Keeping Warm On Cold Days.


Winter is finally here! Although I've always loved the cold weather, spending my first winter in Chicago has been a difficult one. Growing up in the middle east, I've never experienced the temperature drop more than 2°C. Coming to Chicago, it can drop as low as -25°C! NEGATIVE 25!! I won't lie, most days I question myself on why I decided to move here! Lol. Aside from that, I love looking out the window and seeing everything covered in white! I love seeing all the lights and Christmas decor outside. Although, I wish it was a bit warmer, there's nothing like experiencing true winter spirit than living in the Mid-West. 

The key to get by these freezing months is to LAYER up! I cannot begin to explain how important that is!! Anything that has fleece in it is your best friend. I wanted to put up a blog post on different outfits you can put together for the winter time and I finally had the time to take some shots for it. 

I will say that I am very disappointed in myself for not getting more than 2 outfits for this post. It has been very difficult trying to manage my time with all the stress that comes with moving into a new place and trying to organize a bunch of things! So, I sincerely apologize for not having a lot of pictures in this post but I still wish that you guys can find some ideas and inspiration on ways you can style yourself for the winter time! Enjoy :)

1. Beanies, trench coats and scarves.


Like I've said before, layering is very important in keeping warm during those cold winter days. Beanies for one are a necessity, they keep your head and ears warm which I'm all up for! This one in particular is my favorite! It has pom pom ears!


Scarves are my best friends! They instantly makes an outfit pop and keeps your neck super warm. It's also a plus when out doors since I can drown half of my face in it when it gets super cold!

Sweater: H&M
Trench Coat: Forever 21


Jeans: Asos
Boots: Forever 21


Trench coats are my favorite thing! They're so easy to layer and matches almost anything. Super comfy and cute!


Beanie: Forever 21- Out of Stock (Similar)


2. Teddy Coats


This is the first teddy coat I've ever owned and the only one! It's keeps you super warm and is so easy to throw on with any outfit! It is more on the baggy side, so it allows you to layer underneath as much as you like!


Coat: Forever 21
Turtle Neck Sweater: AĆ©ropostale


Sock Booties are a big trend this year, these ones are from Forever 21. Super affordable and comfy. I love wearing these because they make your feet look long and gives the illusion of slimmer legs.
