It’s no secret around here that I despise cold weather, but unfortunately for me, Chicago and arctic cold kind of go hand-in-hand during the winter months. I’m a pro though, when it comes to dealing with the cold and I am never not equipped to deal with it, relying on old favorites to get me through the winter months. Aside from a great down coat – I own this one  – I also never go anywhere without a cashmere scarf wrapped around my neck, a warm pair of gloves and my trusty trapper hat.
