Great Gatsby-Inspired Cold Weather Accessories

Even though I despise Midwest winters, I’ve always been a sucker for cold weather accessories – hats, scarves, you name it. So when my sister, Kristy, got these vintage-inspired head wraps and faux-fur gloves in at her shop, I instantly fell in love. I didn’t have anything similar already in my closet, and the blush color further reinforces my current obsession with winter pastels. I like to think Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby would’ve worn similar accessories to keep warm.

I was beyond thrilled to receive both the head wrap and gloves as a Christmas gift from my brother-in-law, Tom, and I have been wearing both on repeat since last Thursday. Paired with a cape coat and my Grandma Bette’s vintage pearl necklace, I feel equal parts glamorous and cozy.

    Thank you, sissy! You (and Tom) have good taste.

    Thanks, Becky!

    You are so sweet! I simply love these accessories because they are fashionable AND super warm. My poor ears don't freeze with that headband on!

    Lol, I highly doubt hats look bad on you, but headbands don't give you hat hair so that's a definite plus!

    Thank you! I've had that cape for years – I scored it at Express on super clearance one year, but I sadly never wear it. I think I'll have to change that.

    Thanks. girl!

    You are too nice, thanks lady! I know my sister would love it if you stopped into her store. It's right on the corner of Main St. in Elburn!

    You are so sweet! And, I know – my sister really deserves the credit, but my BIL technically was my secret Santa this year, so he still needed a little shout-out. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I agree, I much prefer these headbands over hats!

  17. 12.30.14

    I definitely like to think so. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks, girl!

    I haven't gotten new cold weather accessories in a couple years, so I was so excited to get these!

  19. 12.30.14

    Thanks, girl! It's definitely a more girly touch for this cold weather.

  20. 12.30.14

    Thanks, girl! My sister also is sending me a pair of gloves that have the same embellishment on them as the head wrap. It's such a pretty detail!

  21. 12.30.14

    I'm right there with you! These accessories are ridiculously warm, too.
