Living in Florida all my life, I’ve never had to shop for the different seasons. It’s just shorts and a tank year-round for me. When it comes to winter in Wisconsin, my Florida wardrobe does not work to keep me warm. The brutal winters take a lot of preparation. Amazon is my go-to for all things winter, all the way from my favorite lip balm to the comfiest winter coat.
Socks are one of my top winter necessities. The most miserable feeling is when your feet go numb walking to class. I’ve bought several packs of these and swear by them to keep my feet warm!
Cozy sets are one of my favorite things to shop for during winter. Throwing on a matching set is always the easiest way to go, as it saves me time from planning an outfit. As I spend so much time bundled on my couch, matching sets are my solution to being stylish and comfortable at the same time.
Lightweight crew neck sweaters are my favorite layering pieces. These sweaters can be used to dress up or down depending on how you want to style your look.
When I found the Heavyweight Puffer while browsing through Amazon, I was shocked. This puffer is the perfect dupe for the Aritzia Super Puff sold at a fraction of the price.
For me, chapped lips are one of the main struggles of winter. It took me forever to find the perfect lip balm. My ultimate favorite is definitely Rosebud Perfume CO. Lip Balm.
Being stuck inside can make keeping up with my workout routine a little tricky. I use my Bala Bangles while I walk on the treadmill for an extra kick. Even using them for other workout videos elevates the entire workout.
These famous slippers definitely live up to the hype. I seriously never take mine off while I’m in my apartment.
I know this may seem weird, but I seriously wouldn’t be able to survive winter without this. Seasonal depression is awful, and I will do anything I can to avoid it. Every morning after breakfast, I take two of these and have noticed such a difference over time.
The Ash Boys Smell Candle is the perfect cozy winter scent to fill your apartment with. This candle comes in a variety of yummy, amazing scents.
I know this is an expensive buy for a face moisturizer, but it does the job better than any others I’ve assayed. It keeps my skin fresh and moisturized throughout the day in Wisconsin negative-degree weather.
