I have a love/dislike relationship with the winter. I love winter fashion but I dislike the cold.  We took a trip right before the new year to Lake Placid, New York.  What a beautiful place! Although my husband and I do not partake in cold weather sports, we still found fun things to do in town.  The Winter Olympics were held there in 1932 and 1980 and the Olympic Center and other facilities are still utilized by many Olympic hopefuls as a place to train and, for some, to prepare for the upcoming Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The town gave off a cozy vibe and there were so many great places to shop, relax, and eat! 
In the very first picture, I was standing on Mirror Lake! YIKES! For a girl who doesn't like to mess with nature, getting on the ice was a little unsettling to say the least. My husband coerced me by saying "It will make for great pictures on your blog!" and well, in the name of fashion and blogs, I picked up my big girl panties and got out there! 
I chose this outfit to photograph for two reasons: 1. These are pretty much my favorite cozy clothes and winter accessories and 2. I wanted to show you that you can still have style while being warm and comfortable.  My Burberry snood was something I purchased a while back because the snood was a cheaper alternative than an actual Burberry scarf.  I decided that I wanted the look but didn't want to pay $400 for the scarf. So at the time, I paid $250 for a Burberry snood. SUCH A DEAL! I have had it for years and, as long as your aren't a person who easily looses winter accessories, definitely worth the investment. My leather Uggs are also something I have had for an eternity.  I purchased them on Ebay because I couldn't afford them at full price.  They were lightly used at the time. No harm, no foul! These boots have kept me warm for more than 5 years and still look great! Sometimes it pays to splurge and treat yourself from time to time! You work hard! Oh! How could I forget my FAVORITE accessory? My Glamscot Mumford! Isn't he the cutest?!?!?! 
What cold weather item do you like to splurge on?
