Cre8ing With Station 8: 8 Ways To Stay Cozy This Winter
Winter is here! Brisk temperatures, lightly falling snow, and a picturesque white landscape, tis the season! I love all the layers of winter. Layers of wool sweaters, wool blankets, hats, gloves, and scarves galore! My closet is full of them! So take it from someone who is always cold; here are my 8 ways to stay cozy this December!
Sweaters: Vintage wool ones are my favorites, but any good cable knit, or merino wool will do! I like to layer them under vintage blazers.
Mittens/gloves: Every girl knows you need multiple pairs for different outfits/conditions. The latest trend in these are texting gloves, fingerless so you can keep your hands warm and still use your phone. Every stocking is going to need a pair of these this Christmas!
Hats: Another stylish way to keep yourself warm. Hats have become very popular for women in recent years. My favorites are newsies, and you can get these short billed hats in warm woven’s, as well as canvas summer styles, so they’re not only fashionable, but also keep you toasty warm.
Scarves: Not only do they keep you warm they are so “in” right now we can’t keep them in-stock! Scarves are truly considered a fashion must have in the cold weather, and we can show you multiple ways to tie them!
Vests/Jackets: From Down-filled to wool pea coats, you can’t live in Montana without having a closet full of different weights of jackets. Layer your vintage vest over your jacket to be both on trend and snuggly!
Mugs: A winter day is not complete without a nice hot beverage! Handmade pottery, or I’ll often see one of the shop girls walking through the shop with a vintage mug in hand, with her favorite, tea, coffee, or in my case hot cocoa, in it! A selection of mugs is a winter must have, and they also make great gifts.
A good book: Being a Montana girl (and a book hoarder) there’s nothing I like better on a blustery winter evening than cuddling up on the sofa in front of the fireplace with a good book. I tend to get sentimental in the winter and read, or re-read the classics. If you’re in need of a little sunshine to brighten a dreary winter day, we have amazing Glacier National Park books written by local authors such as George Ostrom, and Blake Passmore that are full of beautiful photography of the park, and it’s never too soon to start planning summer hiking excursions!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
