Hello, everyone. It's time for another Weekly Wednesday! The time has now changed, and we're headed into the winter months. What stands out to most people about winter? It's cold! This week, I decided to feature some fashionable and comfy items that will keep you warm in the wintertime. Not much better than being warm and comfy when it's cold out, right?
Item #1 is from knitonetoo
Anyone always have cold hands? I can't be the only one, so I thought it would be a good idea to feature an item that will help keep our hands warm and still let us carry out our everyday activities. Whether you're typing or writing, painting or sewing, these lovely teal gloves will allow you to keep warm and be colorful at the same time. I love how the teal has specks of color interwoven into the yarn--it adds a little more pizzazz to the look. The cable knit is also a classy pattern that enables these gloves to stay in style no matter what.
Item #2 is from Avaneska
I love this slouchy hat! The slouch just gives the hat a little more style than one made to exactly fit the head. The chunky yarn and button also had a little somethin' somethin' to the style factor as well. I feel like this one is definitely a contender for keeping our heads warm without sacrificing style. If you prefer a color other than gray, there are several to choose from at checkout!!
Item #3 is from JustaGuyKnits
I know I said that the slouch hat had more style than the ones that fit the shape of the head, but I love the fur poof on top. And, ...surprise! It's removable! You can detach it for washing or for switching between hats! That's pretty darn neat in my opinion. The color and cable knit pattern are a nice touch as well.
Item #4 is from MercierMarche
Maybe it's just me, but I've mainly been a wearer of the good old, everyday scarf--the long piece that you just wrap around your neck. I'm really loving the color and the chunky knit of this one. It is also really long (7 feet)--which is nice because sometimes you want to drape it a little more without it looking funny with those short ends (and I know everyone has that issues from time to time). This particular color is called "spice, " and I think it's a very pretty color--but if you want a specific color there a many to choose from.
Item #5 is from JannysGirl
Blanket scarves have been very trendy in the fashion world this year--I think they actually rival the infinity scarf that's been popular in recent years. I personally haven't tried the blanket scarf yet, but I can see how they would be a popular item. They definitely have multiple uses--scarf, shawl, or maybe even something to sit on when you're in a park reading. You even could lay it at the foot of the bed for a little color and/or decoration! I really like the color combination in this one--reminds me of fall, but it could be used throughout the winter. The only thing you'd need in addition to this is knowledge of how to tie scarves ;)
Item #6 is from MaxMelody
When fall and winter roll around it's time to break out the sweaters! There are chunky ones, off the shoulder ones, oversized ones, etc., the options are endless. This sweater is longer than most--I don't know about you, but I always end up with sweaters that are too short. It also has sleeves long enough to cover most of your hands (love!) that allow for you to get nice and comfy. The detail on the sleeves and around the neckline is definitely a nice touch and adds a bit of feminine flair.
Item #7 is from CraftsbySarahLiz (boot cuffs) and Item #8 is from socksandmittens
I think, so far, that I've covered everything to keep the head, arms, and body warm, so I think we need to think about the legs and the feet. Gotta keep those tootsies warm! I love these socks! They're so colorful! They would be great to wear with boots because most people need thicker socks to take up any extra space in the boot itself not to mention keeping the feet warm. I don't necessarily like having a lot of excess room because I feel like I'm stomping around in boots that are huge--that's why I suggest these. I'm also loving these boot cuffs! I've always wanted a pair but never actually gotten any. I may have to do so soon. I love how simple these are..The button is a great touch and adds a bit of visual interest without going over the top. They would be great if you're wearing socks or if you're not. We don't need a draft going down our legs now, do we?!
That's all I have for you this week! I hope you've enjoyed the roundup of warm and comfy yet stylish pieces. I'm definitely ready for the cooler weather! Please hop over to your favorite handmade site and show some artists and makers some lover!
BIG OLE NOTE: There will not be a Weekly Wednesday until December (although I'll still be browsing)! Why you ask? I'M GOING TO EUROPE! I'll have lots of pictures to post when I get back..unless I have a lot of time during layovers. With that, I'm signing off, and I'll see you in December!
p.s. Feel free to share, like, pin, tag, or tweet!
