Since it's been super cold over on the east coast, my favorite accessory to combat the cold is a faux fur vest! This faux fur vest is from this cute boutique in Philadelphia called Elle Lauri and is becoming one of my favorite places to shop in the city!  Elle Lauri is an affordable lifestyle women's fashion brand will very trendy clothing!

How to Dress Fashionably in the Cold

The last couple of days have been terribly cold.  On Tuesday I made the mistake of not wearing gloves.  Then yesterday I made the mistake of wearing flats outside.  I don't know about you, but walking around in the city when its freezing cold is not fun at all.  On the bright side, now is the perfect time to buy cold weather gear as many stores are trying to get rid of their winter selection in anticipation of their Spring collections.  I've compiled a list of a few of my favorite cold-weather gear.

1. Boots - Warm boots are a must have.  The UGG Bailey Button Triplet in black (retails $230) not only look stylish but they keep your feet warm.  I love wearing these when the weather gets cold, however, do not wear them in the rain or snow as they will get ruined! Also, before wearing them I would strongly suggest spraying them with the water & stain repellant as contact with rain will ruin your UGG's. (Yes I know from personal experience from ruining my UGG's).

2. Gloves - Warm gloves are also a must have.  I love gloves that have a trim of fur like these ones from UGG Classic Turn Cuff Gloves (Retails $175).

3. Jacket - I was never a fan of puffer jackets.  However, living in the city I have changed my mind.  Puffer jackets come in handy when you have to walk around in the cold or are battling through the wind.  This puffer jacket from DKNY (Retails $275, Sale Macy's $129.99) is fashionable and also has a belt which will make your waist look super skinny!
