Winter Fashion {Welcoming December}

As I was sitting on my couch last night with my sugar cookie Scentsy burning {you need one if you don't have one} quoting lines from Home Alone 2 {Does anyone mind if I practice my cannonballs?!}, I was thinking about how much I love the month of December.

 Sure...it can be blistering cold here in Ohio, but it's usually packed with fun Christmas events & parties and the snow is beautiful.

Here are my favorite things I love about December:

What better way to welcome December than with a stylish winter fashion post?! I love getting all bundled up in a big warm coat, cute mittens, and a long scarf.

The gorgeous, interior designer & crafter, Sarah, from a Total Basset Case is here to share some awesome winter fashion trends that you don't want to miss out on. Sarah lives here in Ohio like myself, and knows how to dress to handle the winter here!

Hello Keep Calm and Carry On readers!

Let's talk about winter fashion, shall we? I don't know about you, but my urge for shopping has increased 10 fold thanks to Pinterest!  

Here are some of my favorite winter fashion trends...

1.Colorful Coats: the brighter the better!

2. Chunky Scarves: thick and warm!


 3. Layers: it gets cooold here in Ohio...

  17. Love skirts and tights. I just need some booties, but I don't know if I'm brave enough yet!

    LOVE that yellow coat and the blue cowl..that looks so cozy!

  21. Love your December favorites, I agree with the chunky scarfs...so cute!

    And, we also watched Home Alone 2 last night, that movie always makes me laugh. "Get on your knees and tell me you love me". I crack up every time at that part!!
