Cold Weather Essentials

Let’s face it, with these frightful, record-setting temperatures, it can be tough rolling out of bed and putting together that “shiver-free” ensemble. Luckily for us, we northerners know just how to embrace the artcic tundra. Here are some of our favorite winter picks that will be sure to keep you looking chic and cozy all season long! 1. Wrap up by the fireplace in your favorite wool blanket, like this handmade throw from our friends at Faribault Woolen Mill Co.

2. Keep your feet dry with a great pair of snow-friendly kicks, like these locally-made {and unisex} Red Wing Boots.

3. Winter is all about proper layering. Throw on a chunky sweater underneath your favorite puffy parka to avoid the jitters.

4. Protect your neck with an infinity scarf. We are swooning over these handmade knit scarves by the talented Kevin Kramp.

5. Support Cloquet, MN 's "Wear-a-knit" factory  {and avoid frost bitten ears} by investing in a Winter Beanie from Askov Finlayson.

6. Protect your hands from the harsh, dry winter days with these sleek, leather gloves from Zara.

7. Lather-up with our favorite moisturizing {and yummy smelling} Rosewater Driftwood Hand Balm by Caldrea.

8. We are currently swooning over this Madewell quilted puffer vest. Throw it on over your favorite chambray or white long sleeve shirt for a preppy cozy look.

9. Keep your items safe with a durable, MN-made leather bag {like this J.W. Hulme Legacy Handbag}.
