{guest post} warming up for winter

Meggy is here guest posting today and I couldn't be more excited.  
I'm not quite sure how I found her blog, but as soon as I did...I was hooked.  She is super-stylish, I love her outfits and she is just about the cutest pregnant lady/new mama I have ever seen!  
Plus, I love that she's from Kansas...so close to my home state of Oklahoma!  

Welcome Meggy!

Hello Lili and Mae readers! I'm Meggy from Chasing Davies, guest posting for Mae as she moves back to the U.S.!  I don't know about where you live, but here in the Midwest it's starting to get downright cold!  Time to really bring out those winter favorites...but I don't want to look like an over stuffed marshmallow to keep warm, so here are a few of my go to chic, but cozy winter wears!

Faux Fur: So toasty warm and right on trend this season.  Easy to dress up or down.  I have a faux-fur vest & snood and wouldn't be too scared to get stuck in a winter storm with those babies on.

Chunky Knit: Knits can be found in bounty all over and the sweater soft material is super warm.  These days, a hat, gloves and scarf can be found as style statements instead of just keeping us warm!



Knit Cowl; Embellished Knit Hat; Long Knit Gloves that keep your arms warm, too!

Oversized: Cardigans, Ponchos, Sweaters, etc all oversized and cuddly keep me extra warm and they usually add an extra shield to my bum!

Tall Boots: Of course you wear boots in the winter, who doesn't?  A great way to keep warm.  But some boots are better than others with extra warmth on the inside and/or waterproof on the outside - good for trudging through parking lots and to and fro you car.



Sherpa Lined Faux-Suede Boots; Fleece Boot Liners for your current boots that might not be as warm; my personal fav go-to winter boot: Joan of Arctic Boot by Sorel, I think the faux-fur top adds something fun to an otherwise snow boot; For around the house...so cozy are these Corene Bootie Slippers from Target

There you have it, now you are covered from head to toe and warm as if you were home by the fire... well, maybe not, but at least you look good while trudging through the sleet, snow and bitter wind.  Joy oh joy, doesn't that sound fun.  So much to look forward too, but thankfully we have the Holidays to distract us some.  

How do you stay warm and look cute? 

Thanks so much to Mae for having me here today!

xox,

Thanks so much Meggy!  
I'm heading back to Chicago so I can certainly use all the tips I can get to stay warm and {hopefully} cute!
I think the oversized sweaters are my favorite winter warmth trend, though I'm a bit addicted to my Uggs too!
