Winter Accessories

To make it through the cold, bitter winter you need a few essentials…here are some j&k winter-weather survival tips:

1. Aveeno Intense Repair Cream

This is not for the summer days folks. This stuff is the big guns for under-hydrated winter skin. It has oat essence so it helps calm any pesky dry skin irritations and will leave your skin moist and dreaming of summer.

2. A Warm Scarf

Any scarf will do…but his one Kate’s mom handmade for her…like she knit it from scratch!! Warm, cozy & we love the bright pink color…spruces up any drab winter woes. For some reason if your head and neck stay reasonably warm you can generally handle the cold.

3. Hot Chocolate…or really any warm beverage.

Nothing like warming your insides with a nice sugary cup of hot chocolate. Yes and yes.

4. Lip balm

You gotta keep your lips smooth & hydrated….New Years Eve is coming up 😉 Nothing worse than chapped, cracked lips. Keep them kissable with Aquaphor Healing Ointment.

5. Flip-Top Glove/Mittens (combined!)

Not sure what the technical name for these is, but they are gloves where your fingers can breathe, but you can flip the mitten over for warmth. Highly functional. Also there are lots of cute options out there. Two thumbs up.

6. Beanie or Ear Cover

Don’t think for a second that the ol’ j&k are gonna forget our favorite winter accessory: the headpiece. Whether it be a beanie or ear warmer, ear muffs, or any other type of winter hat…you can bet it’ll be on our heads during these cold months.

Stay warm! Stay hydrated! Beat the winter blues! 🙂

    Thanks for the tips, ladies. Nice marketing of the products, by the way. Oh, and Kate’s mom did a great job on the scarf. 🙂

    7. Leg warmers/slouch socks to go with boots. So good this is my recent addiction, my feet are soooo snuggly with them on.

    8.thicky wooley leggings, sooooooo good! Also means you can make any summer skirt/dress work for winter.

    But aside from that, totally agree with the list. Love the mittens/fingerless glove combo, I need to seek out my rainbow knitted ones I got in my last year of university from a German Xmas market, seem to have lost them since I moved house *goes to find them*

    I started knitting a scarf about 3 or 4 years ago and quit after I got about 6 inches done haha (it’s so monotonous, I don’t have the patience for it I guess…I used to knit clothes for my barbies when I was 7 when my grandma taught me how to knit, but those are MUCH smaller :-P), so kudos to your mom, Kate 🙂

    Oh, that’s lovely. 🙂

    (I recently read The House of the Spirits, by Isabel Allende, and one of the main characters said he knew his wife was in one of her self-absorbed fogs, too busy to pay attention to anything outside herself, when she would go around answering everybody and everything with, “Oh, that’s lovely.”) LOL

    But this really is lovely in this case, especially those cool gloves. Mean it. 🙂
