Winters in New England can be very long and bitterly cold. By mid-January, I'm usually praying for spring to arrive, even though I know there's still a good three months before any signs of greenery will begin to appear. The only way that I'm able to tolerate these frigid months, is to be cozy, and because of this I have three items that are a must in my winter wardrobe. The first is a cute beanie. The thing that I love most about beanies, is that they complete your outfit. So whether you're outside, or in, you can wear them and always have an extra layer of warmth, while still looking stylish. Not to mention, they are perfect for covering up a bad hair day! The second item is a blanket scarf, which you all know of my scarf obsession (here). You can wrap yourself up in them, as if you're wearing a big blanket, and they easily add interest or dress up plain top. The third must have item is a great pair of leggings. As much as I love my jeans, there are days that I just want to be extra comfortable, so leggings are my go-to. In fact, I've worn leggings every day this past week, but that will be our little secret. I recently was sent this pair of black leggings from Comm-ci, and you guys, I'm obsessed! Hands down, this is the most comfortable pair of leggings that I have ever owned, and trust me, I've owned a lot. Not only do they have a silk-like feel, but they are a high rise, so they hold everything in, and I love that they are actually a full length on me (yay for us tall girls!) Don't worry, they also come in a cropped length for my shorter girls, plus they have a knee length style, along with straight leg, and low rise options. So far, I've only worn them around the house, but they can easily be dressed with the night top for a night out. I will 100% be adding another pair of these leggings to my wardrobe, and if you want a pair for yourself, Comm-ci is offering my readers a 20% discount with the code: RachaelThreads20.
