As those of you who’ve been hanging out here a while know, I loathe being cold. Winter is, by far, my least favorite time of year, and the one during which my fantasies about moving to L.A. are most alive—fires, traffic, and mudslides be damned. This year I’m doing my best to make sure I am always warm and toasty, indoors and out. Because my apartment is all windows, it’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter, and to make sure my feet stay nice and cozy, I acquired these Birkenstock slippers, which are so comfortable that I can’t wait to get home and put them on. They also come in this excellent red, and grey too.
You know I like a bucket hat, and I think this fleece version couldn’t be a whole lot cuter.
I got it into my head a few weeks ago that I needed cashmere socks, and set out to find the most reasonably-priced pair I could locate. These are from Cos, and they’re 94% cashmere, and super-warm.
Because I must clean up after my dogs while walking them, and that involves opening plastic bags, I have very specific requirements for a glove. I wear fingerless ones for as long as the weather permits, but I got this new pair, which has a handy flap to cover the tops of your fingers, for when it’s too freezing to go fingerless.
The fleece collar on this Madewell jumpsuit is a fun and cushy touch.
I think these splurgy drop-crotch cashmere sweatpants from Nili Lotan would be perfect for morning dog walks. If you’d like a pair that doesn’t cost a small fortune and doesn’t feature a drop-crotch, try these, from Everlane.
I am a huge fan of Uniqlo’s Heattech leggings, which are so whisper-thin they don’t feel bulky under even the tightest pants, and keep you nice and toasty. They also go for just under $20 a pop, and it’s hard to beat that.
The idea of lining my winter boots with these nifty foot warmers sounds like heaven.
Also rather heavenly: this Roland Pine candle from Soap & Paper Factory.
