  4. Ah those pictures of being all cozy is so adorable. California is getting pretty cold this winter too!

This guide will be helpful when i travel again to a very cold place 🙂

  7. I love fall and winter jackets, they look so nice over turtleneck sweaters or button up shirts under a v-neck vest. A brown leather jacket is versatile if you can afford one. We did not have leggings when I was growing up, now everyone wears them and for good reasons, they are comfortable!

  8. Wow, I love to experience that I never been in a snowy area and it’s already on my bucket lists.

  18. These are some amazing tips to follow. The weather isn’t really cold though this side of the world.. But I could use some of these nice sweaters and an over the knee boot.
