Get in the Mood with Winter Fashion

As winter swept the country this week, I noticed a few things. First of all, I noticed that I was 100% not ready for the cold and snow. Yet, as my Pinterest boards flooded with coats, oversized sweaters, and wool socks, I noticed that I began to warm up to the idea. Better yet, I noticed that some bloggers (Alt alumni, of course) took advantage and turned what could have been a bummer of a week into a blogging winter wonderland.

Attitude makes all the difference, and these five bloggers know how to get creative with the every day.

Rachel of Cardigan Empire celebrates her six year blogoversary with a little fur, a signature cardigan, and a lot of sparkle.

The Small Fry girls gathered all the best winter gear for little boys and girls to stay toasty and warm.

Merrick of Merrick's Art found 10 fashionable coats for under $100, and teaches the art of making a fringe scarf.

Abby of Twist Me Pretty got out her faux fur the very second the temps started to plummet.

And, Corrine of Mint Arrow had our feet covered with the news of a huge sale.

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
