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.

  10. 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!

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

  12. 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.

  15. 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. 🙂

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

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

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

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
