6 Things You Should Buy At Nordstrom If You Really, Really Hate The Cold
Okay, so if you are anything like me, you absolutely hate the cold with a passion! Other than the frigid temperatures that make it almost impossible to get out of bed in the morning and frostbitten ears, fingers, and toes, the worst part of the winter season is finding outfits that will help you brace for the weather. Of course, a hefty coat, winter boots, and warm scarves and gloves are cold-weather essentials. But, sometimes you just need a little more fur, fleece, and flannel to combat the freezing cold. Bundle up with these amazing Nordstrom finds that will keep you warm and toasty this winter. We've also included reviews from buyers if you don't believe us when we say that you're gonna NEED these items for the winter. The North Face Fuzzy Earflap Beanie ($40.00) They say you lose the most heat through your head, so a warm hat is essential in the cold. Kill two birds with one stone by keeping both your head and ears warm with this fleece-lined, cable-knit beanie. "The hat is so soft on the inside. The flaps come down pretty low for full ear coverage! And my head stays nice and toasty during frigid winter temps. By far my favorite hat!" -Alyssa Hue Fleece Lined Leggings ($54.00) Leggings go with everything, but they typically aren't the warmest thing to wear. These leggings, however, will keep you toasty in the cold as they are lined with cozy fleece! "For colder weather, these leggings are the best!! Thicker than most which is just what I wanted." -sharon1212 Thread & Supply Wubby Fleece Pullover ($78.00) Layering is essential during the winter. This cozy fleece pullover will help you keep warm when just a shirt and a coat isn't enough! "Fits great, and so comfortable and warm. I live in a place that gets super cold in the winter months and this definitely keeps me warm when I'm running errands or just relaxing and watching television." -Greyy UGG Water Resistant Touchscreen Quilted Gloves ($75.00) No more cold hands this winter with these gloves trimmed with soft shearling. They're also waterproof and touchscreen-compatible, so you can still use your smartphone while they're on. "I balked at the full price for winter gloves but these are a lifesaver - beautiful style and perfect fit plus genuine warmth on cold days. I think they transition nicely from a more casual coat to a dress coat too. UGG truly delivers quality and style for these gloves." -Sn70 Hunter Original Insulated Boot ($130.65, originally $195.00) These Hunter duck boots are perfect for both rain and snow! They're insulated with faux-fur lining to keep your feet warm and made of rubber and leather to protect your feet from snow, ice, and slush. We love this hot pink pair, but they also come in a light, khaki brown color as well. Halogen Faux Fur Stole ($29.40, originally $49.00) Look stylish and warm this winter with this faux fur stole. Wear it over your winter coat or over a dress for a cozy collar. "The Halogen Faux Fur Stole is a serious wow! It is extremely soft and silky and the varied fiber lengths give it the texture and touch of genuine fur. I will pair this with EVERYTHING...it definitely elevates my winter weather wear. I love that you can adjust the fit of the piece to envelop your neck and frame your face to your liking. Warm...Luxurious...Versatile. It's effortless glam!" -BLONO If you're looking for ways to survive the winter beyond clothing and accessories, check out these weird yet genius winter items from Amazon at SheFinds.com!

The Bailey Charm Boot Is The Coolest UGG Since…Ever
Skeptical that an UGG boot is going to do anything other than go on clearance this holiday season?

Any UGG owner will tell you that they wear the boot more for comfort than style (just ask these celebs). The ease of the shoe, especially in colder weather, seem to trump all logical thoughts about whether or not it actually "looks" good. After all, if it feels right, how can it be wrong? And this new UGG is stepping up its game with the addition of the boho-esque Bailey charm. So instead of wearing the same boots everyone's had since 2002, why not be different with the Bailey Charm Boot? Yeah, get on that. Like now.

Warmer Than Earmuffs, Cooler Than A Hat: The Case For Turban Headbands
When the turban trend first hit in 2007, I admit I was a little wary. Then last spring, Sarah Jessica Parker pulled it off beautifully in Sex and The City 2, but what about the rest of us? Thankfully, the folks at DVF and Rag & Bone have come up with a totally accessible version of the trend for winter: the turban headband. It's warmer than ear muffs, is infinitely more cool than the fleece headbands of middle school days, and is a great a way to try the turban trend without going all the way: Keep your ears warm, while still looking chic (a la Ashley Olsen) with this cool Rag & Bone Cromwell Headband ($95). It covers more of your noggin than regular earmuffs, and totally nails the turban trend. For a cool printed version, it doesn't get any better than this Diane von Furstenberg Marley Head Wrap ($98). The pattern is so classically DVF, it will be like a happy pop of color every time you great dressed this winter. For more must-have winter accessories, check our guides to the best faux fur vests, gloves, and scarves.
Fashion Math: Is This Club Monaco Fur Trapper Hat Worth Nearly $300?
Let's talk investments. Every year, as much as you want to deny it, it happens: it gets cold. Instead of being surprised each time, and buying a new hat each year, get one that actually stands the test of time. In my experience, the same old knit back hat I buy every year is a terrible investment: I lose it when it gets dark out, and it's not even that warm. This Club Monaco Drew Fur Trapper Hat ($279), though, is serious. Between the soft fur, the ear flaps, and thick lining, I'm sweating just looking at it. But when that first snowfall hits, you won't regret dishing out the dollars for this hat. The real question - is the fur worth the funds? SHEFinds breaks it down... If you wear this hat 3-4 times a week until February - it equals less than the salad you're about to buy for lunch. But feel free to wear it next year and the year after. You can pair this hat with other faux fur accessories or just a cute winter scarf. Either way, I know where my $300 is going--how about yours? Need more reasoning on expensive purchases?
