How to Keep Warm!

Soo this winter has kinda sucked temperature-wise with these polar vortex's and ish. I like winter (cold weather = no sweating!) but I have the coldest hands and feet ever. So my Sidekicks and I decided to come up with some tips for keeping warm this winter.


My tip: Get a heating pad and put it on your feet. It'll warm you right up!


Hi I'm Kelli and I blog over at She Crab Soup! I'm a beach bum so cold weather and I don't get along, the best advice I have for staying warm is to make a nice steaming cup of hot chocolate laced with your favorite french vanilla flavored coffee creamer (thanks for the tip Jess)! Not only does hot chocolate warm the insides, wrapping my hands around the cup is my favorite way to thaw out.


When Jessica asked us to share our favorite tips for staying warm in the winter, the first thing that popped into my head was: keep your ass indoors. Pictures of myself outside in the winter are extremely rare and considered to be collector's edition. The one shown here is the closest I could come (inside of a car) without using one that dated back to childhood. To be clear: those white flakes are indeed snow and not dandruff. Winter and I... we don't get along... and I enjoy giving it the (wait for it) "cold" shoulder (BAM!). Catch up on projects or crafts, find new shows on Netflix, drink hot cocoa, pin until you have carpel tunnel syndrome, snuggle up with your significant other/child/fur-baby, work your way through a list of classic books... whatever... just hibernate. Jack Frost is a jerk, you guys. Hide yo' wife, hide yo' kids. -- Amanda at Voyage of the MeeMee


I don't know what it is about my store, but it has been a cold store all winter. So to stay warm while working my scarf collection has grown as well as my cardigan/sweater collection. I usually pair a solid color shirt with either my gray or black cardigan, and a white shirt with my colored cardigans, then add a scarf. Most of my scarves are multiple colors so they match just about any color combination I put together. Some days I wear my skinny pants and boots so my feet stay warm also. On this particular day I chose all black with my bright pink scarf. How do you stay warm at work?       -- Jessica at Dream Mo(o)re

What are your favorite ways to keep warm in these frigid temps?

  1. Ha, my old internship was really cold. The girl before me left a cute note on my job responsibilities and mentioned she wore earmuffs at work. It was cold there, but I luckily didn't have to resort to earmuffs :-)

  2. I drink coffee every day but it feels like it serves more of a purpose in the winter. I love how it warms you from the inside, out!

  10. I hate the cold so so much. I can never warm up no matter what (Raynaud's disease), but I totally agree that hot chocolate is one of the best things to warm you up! It works better than tea or coffee.

    Cashmere socks are the best to keep your feet warm!
